18 weeks

Weekly update

How far along: 18 weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  At my 16 week appt I had gained less than a pound.  Not so sure about that now as I gorged myself most of the time on the cruise...;)

Maternity clothes: Yes. Not thinking people are questioning it anymore.

Stretch marks: Leftover ones from DD...stretch marks are inevitable, I am not scared.

Sleep: Not having a pregnancy pillow was a prob on the cruise, but I slept ok.

Movement: Starting to feel movement a bit more each day.  Especially when I haven't eaten in awhile.

Cravings/Aversions: Any food now...kinda nice.  Aversions:  Eggs are still not high on my list, especially cruise ship plain eggs...:)
Gender: We are green team. Finding out at birth. Been having weird feelings it is a boy, but after hearing about Doug's grandma's dream, it is probably a girl...:)

Symptoms: Not many actually, had some major hand bloating one day on vacation when we were walking around sightseeing.
What I miss: Not a whole lot of anything actually.

What I look forward to:  Getting back to everyday life and work...ran out of time off so the paychecks are looking icky. 
Moods: Eh, nervous...about everything. Health of the baby, work, bills, etc.

Milestones: 18 weeks is a great milestone...;)

Medical Concerns: The subchorionic hemorrage.

Weekly Wisdom: Being pregnant on a cruise ship...the clumsiness came out!  Always remember band aids and neosporin...LOL
Best moment this week: Seeing many places that I haven't seen before...vacation was great!
Worst moment this week:  NONE!!!
And a few pics from the cruise:
D and DD hanging out on our balcony on the cruise ship...Love having a balcony, not sure when we can cruise again though because of the baby...unless we drop the kids off and have an "adult" cruise....hummm...
Found a conch shell graveyard in Grand Turk...Loved it!   
And the prego belly...and my white feet.  Couldn't get a nice tan as I hate laying out, but the feet did end up getting burned a bit...LOL


  1. Looks like a lovely vacation! I hope the transition back to work isn't too hard. :)

  2. Less than a pound??? Lucky, LOL. Anywho, great photos! Glad you had a good time!

  3. Shannon - Thanks! Yea, have the work blahs today...

    Kakunaa - LOL...I gained 20 pounds before I got pregnant...:) Those drugs did not like me (first was Clomid for 6 months, then down reg, and stim drugs...)
    I think I might have gained 8 pounds on the cruise!
