Bumpdate | Week 18


How far along? 18 weeks, one day.

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a sweet potato!

Gender: It's a girl!

Weight Gain: Still at about 5 pounds. However, I was sick this week and I lost almost 2 pounds in a day, but I gained it all back within a few days. As you can see from the picture though, I feel like all the weight I gained went straight to the belly. I am starting to look more pregnant to people who did not know I was pregnant, especially those who I see on a regular basis like coworkers and neighbors.

Maternity Clothes: Richard's mom bought me a few more plain t-shirts, thankfully. I have been wearing them pretty much at any opportunity. I also scheduled a Stitch Fix for maternity clothes. I really need to find a dress for a wedding I have at the end of the year so I hope Stitch Fix can find me something good. Otherwise, I will have to do that on my own. I also invested in some more comfortable undergarments. Lets just say that my pre-pregnancy stuff just wasn't cutting it anymore.

Symptoms: Great News! I have not had a full blown headache in two whole weeks! It is a tiny miracle and I am so so grateful! Apparently the massages, chiropractor appointments and new pillow have all done the trick. Other than that, I just feel more pregnant. Not sure how else to describe it, but I feel like I am huge even though I really am not that much bigger. I was also sick with a fever and a sore throat this last week which was not fun. But being able to binge watch on Friends and relax on the couch was not bad either. I felt much better after a few days and my doctor cleared me and said my body was healing itself.

Movement: I have been feeling this little girl moving like crazy! I love, love that! For a while I could feel her in one specific area and now I feel her pretty much all over. Sometimes, I think it is just little kicks and other times I feel like she is just moving in general. There was one moment last week when I was sick that I could feel her kicking so hard. I was convinced Richard should have been able to feel it too, but no such luck. Doctor said he should feel that in the next few weeks.

Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good! My pregnancy pillow has been doing wonders for me. Although, I wish I was a little bit taller, it would definitely fit better. I still wake up 2-3 times a night to go to the bathroom. Also, every so often I will wake up at some crazy early time and not be able to fall asleep for a while. Super annoying, but oh well.

Baby Purchases: We have been resisting the urge to buy all things baby so that we can save up a little. This last weekend, however, a girl I follow on Instagram was selling a whole bunch of super cute girl clothes so I may have gone a little overboard. I can't wait to actually receive all the clothes!

Best Moment This Week: I have to say buying the baby clothes on Instagram was super fun. First person to comment is the winner so I had to be on top of my game. Plus, now I can picture her in all these cute clothes and its just so fun! Can't wait!

Looking Forward To: We have our ultrasound scheduled next week! Even though we already know the baby's sex, I cant wait to just see her. It should be so fun!

Just because you can actually see the difference in these pictures!
