18 Weeks!

February 11, 2016 No Comments

So, I missed 17 weeks…but who’s counting?! I may make this a bi-weekly thing, anyway as not a ton changes from week to week…I’ll just have to see how I feel. Anyway, here is what pregnancy #2 (3? I never know if I should count the loss) looks like
How far along: 18 weeks 5 days

Weight gain: None, I’ve actually lost 1 lb
How many weeks to go: 22 weeks
Due date: July 9th 2016
Symptoms:  Random nausea,mostly if I wait to long to eat. Does a growing belly count? Actually need maternity pants this week….I won’t say how long I’ve been wearing them. Also my plumbing isn’t working as well as I’d like it to (TMI??) but I think I haven’t been drinking enough water
New updates: Bump is starting too look more like a bump and less like bloat. My hair is thickening up, and my skin is clearing up. Anxiety is lots better! Daily affirmations have helped a TON and I borrowed a fetal doppler from a friend, but I’ve only used it a couple times
****Adorable Story Break:
So of course Kal is home with me, and saw me use the fetal doppler. Now at least once a day he asks to “hear baby” or “find baby”. Or he will bring the doppler over and start rubbing it on my belly. It is seriously SO cute and melts me everytime!!
***End Break
Cravings: Still fruit and fruity candy. Adding Almond milk to the list this week
Aversions: None, really right now. Actually I feel like I have the appetite of 2! Trying to keep it within healthy limits, though
Looking forward to: Gender and Anatomy scan next week!!
Missing: Being able to lay on my back. I’m normally a side sleeper, but fomr some reason during pregnancy (happened with Kal too) I just crave laying on my back, but I cant…SO weird
Wedding Rings On/Off:  On
Belly button: In
Baby: Size of a sweet potato (yum!). Nervous system and facial features are developing and baby is making stronger movements
Feeling: Feeling pretty good!
Movement: Getting stronger, starting to feel movement at least 1 time a day, and its definitely baby
Sleep: Sleep is good! I found that putting my phone down helps alot lol as well as not staying up too late. Kal has been pretty consistently sleeping through the night (finally!!) so that is helping as well

  • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

  • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

  • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations
  • Date night with my favorite guy in my favorite booties. These seriously go with any outfit and they are so comfy! 
What's your favorite date night activity?

  • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
  • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
