Bumpdate! Week 18


(Last weeks update!)

Hey all! 5 weeks between my last bumpdate and not much has changed…except the bump! I’ve seen the baby two more times since then, once at my 16 week visit and then today, after a scare last night had us wanting to double check the placenta and heartbeat! Everything was perfect, and littlest love looks amazing…and according to the doctor, “Wow that baby already has beautiful, strong, long legs!” I guess this one is going to take after daddy too!

Everything looks good though, Mama was just scolded for possibly moving some dressers on her own(they seemed pretty light at the time!) and overexerting herself. Baby is perfectly healthy and happy though, and we are extremely grateful for that.


(This is actually from Saturday night, but I wasn’t feeling up to taking one this morning!)

Weekly Questions

How far along? 18 weeks!

Total weight gain/measurements: Today I was about 3 pounds down from pre pregnancy but up from how much I had lost!

Maternity clothes: Not yet! I may have to this pregnancy with the shirts; the bump is legit.
Stretch marks: Still just the previous ones

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping great since I started a new medicine to help with anxiety. It’s been wonderful and since sleeping at night, I am no longer fatigued in the day.

Best moment this week: Getting to see my little babe sucking at it’s fingers and kicking all around today! It was wonderful. I always love to see baby.

Movement: I’ve felt random movement inside, nothing has kicked through yet, but I do feel it if I’m super still for awhile.

Food cravings: I haven’t had many cravings this week!

Anything making you queasy or sick? For some reasons, the oatmeal bars my kids love. The smell is killing me.
