How far along: 18 weeks (5 months)
Baby is the size of a: Pickle or 5.5 inches and 7 oz
Sleep: Better last night but it depends on the day. Back and hip pain still bothers me around 3:00 in the morning.
Best moment this week: Besides Christmas fun it was probably doing some old wives tales with the boys. They love to watch youtube videos of other moms completing their wives tales and the love to see if they were right or not. It’s too funny!
Worst moment of the week: My inability to sleep on Friday night. I was up from about 2:00 to 6:30 due to back pain. Finally got some sleep afterwards but it made for a long and cranky day.
Movement: Hits, kicks and flutters. Baby blueberry is responding to my touch and voice a little more. Hubs and boys still haven’t been able to feel it though. Probably the extra adipose tissue on top of my uterus!! haha
Cravings: None really except for an ice cream cone last night. I was also craving an iced caramel machiato from Starbucks the other day. Despite the cold weather I fulfilled both cravings!
Queasy or sick: None of the above, however, I have been much more moody with this pregnancy than the other too. I’m not used to being a moody person so it’s a change for me. I’m trying to stay cool, calm and collected for my husband’s sake. Poor guy! Maybe it means it’s a girl due to the extra female hormones. Haha
Looking forward to: Finding out the GENDER on Tuesday! We have our ultrasound in the morning on the last day of the year. SOOOOOOO EXCITED!! Despite wanting a girl, I really just want to find out that our little baby is healthy and happy and has all 10 fingers and toes. Gender is just the cherry on top. We would very much like to end this difficult year seeing a perfectly healthy little one.
Will keep everyone posted!!!
