How far along: 18 weeks 4 days.
Size of baby: Bell pepper, 5 1/2 inches 7 ounces.
How many days to go: 151
Total weight gain/loss: I’ve lost 4lbs so far. Everyone gains and loses weight differently during pregnancy, I tend to gain at the end.
Maternity clothes: I wear my maternity shirts from last time, they’re cute and comfortable though not yet needed. I’m in my normal shorts and jeans.
Stretch marks: No new ones, just the load I got from Hazel! They are all white or silvery and faded now.
Sleep: I’m a little restless and have trouble falling asleep. I roll around a lot.
Best moment of this week: Watching Hazel learn and grow and making her laugh.
Milestones: Almost halfway there!
Weekly wisdom: Relax, enjoy your pregnancy. This only happens a few times in a woman’s life, even if they have one zillion children. Savor the moment and try not to focus on the harder parts of pregnancy.
Miss anything: No.
Movement: So much! Baby is very active and both mommy and daddy can feel him now. My placenta has been posterior throughout both pregnancies so I get to feel everything and feel it early.
Food cravings: No, not really. I can eat and cook pretty normally now. I’ve been making a few vegan meals a week and it feels amazing!
Anything making you queasy or sick: No I feel pretty amazing this time. No sickness unless in a bumpy car or something similar.
Have you started to show yet: A little bit.
Gender: It’s a boy!!!!!! We now have one of each.
Labor signs: Nope too early for that business.
Belly button in or out: It’s weird from my diastasis recti from my pregnancy with Hazel. Half in half out I guess.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
