18 Weeks! (and 2 days!)
I feel bad for baby 2 because I am reeeeeally slacking this pregnancy so far. I lost all of my pregnancy tests before taking pictures, I have yet to take an un-ugly bump shot, and I really have made no progress in getting Scarlett out of our bedroom, so baby 2 can have room in his/her co-sleeper. Mom fails, already!!!
How far along? 18 weeks + 2 days!
Baby's size: (I have to go look that up...mom fail.) 5 1/2 inches long; about the size of a bell pepper!
Sleep: Scarlett is getting better at sleeping, only waking up around 3am, so my sleeping is getting better...as long as I have my body pillow! I read that you can't sleep on your back because then you'll squish a major vein, so that has me a little freaked out!
Maternity clothes: I mean, that's not even a question anymore, I liiiive in maternity clothes!!!
Food cravings: Well, I'm a little sad to say, my food aversions have died down a bit, so I'm open to chocolate. Not good for my hips! I still don't really crave it, though, so that's good! My cravings depend on the day, but once I set my mind to something, I have to have it before I let it go.
Food aversions: none. :/
Symptoms I have: I can feel stretching under my belly when I walk for exercise and slight grinding in my right hip off and on...nothing too bad!
Doctor's appointment: June 8th, and then I schedule the ultrasound appointment!!!
Movement: Yes! I can feel little movements once a day, probably. I feel it when I am thinking about it.
Belly button: Same as always. It never poked out with Scarlett, so I'm pretty sure it's not going anywhere!
Gender?: Not known yet...!!!!
What I'm looking forward to: Boy or Girl???!!!
What I miss: A cold glass of chardonnay after the babies go to bed!!! Delicious!!
