18 Weeks | Baby Sweets

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Cheating, as it was taken yesterday, but close enough: #18weeks. #pregnancy #pregnant #baby3 #babybump
Catch up post!

How far along: 18 weeks. [18 with Ezra18 with Isaac] 

How big is baby: A sweet potato at 5 1/2 inches. My sweet baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints from waving around through the amniotic fluid.

Weight gain/loss: After a two days of emotional eating, I managed to get myself back on track. When eating paleo, cheats just end up not being worth it, as it clogs up your whole body and drains your energy. So I'm up to a total 3 lb weight gain.

Stretch marks: After two pregnancies, I somehow still don't have any. 

Sleep: Whooooa boy! Pregnancy dreams are in effect. 

Movement: Almost daily flutters, but still nothing certain or more frequent.

What I'm loving: Being pregnant.

Symptoms: Emotional, irritable, tired.

It was in JcPenney's and I think you guys might have been going to the parking lot. I was working there that night. Shopping with both of my boys totally stresses me out!

Hi Leah - just wanted to wish you and Tony and your sweet boys a wonderful Thanksgiving :) I am trying to fill my day with good things but when I truly let myself think about my first Thanksigivng without Jonathan, I find it hard to breathe! But I am thankful for so many things in my life - before every blessing comes a storm, right?
