18 weeks | Baby Bonus

Friday, April 18, 2014

How far along: 18 weeks. [18w with Miri, 18w with Ezra, 18w with Isaac]

How big is baby: Baby is around 5 1/2" now and around the size of a sweet potato.

Weight gain/loss: Grosssss, up to 6 lbs. Trying to stay on track for a 22lb gain, since I started 11 above pre-preg, like my MW suggested and with Miri, I was only at a 3 lb gain.

Stretch marks: Miraculously none.

Sleep: Neither good nor bad. Miri didn't continue her sleeping through the night habits.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Everything that always sounds good to me sounds good. This pregnancy has really been pretty tame compared to the cravings and aversions brought with the past pregnancies. I've been trying to stay paleo, but man, dairy seems to work it's way into everything.

Movement: I'm pretty certain I've been feeling this babe popping! 

What I'm loving: I'm thankful for a smooth pregnancy at this point. We've had several losses on my September baby board and it's just heartbreaking.

Symptoms: And here I thought my boobs didn't hurt at all with Miri, but surprisingly, I'm reading that they hurt with her late, like they've been hurting this time too. My face has been breakout city.

What I'm looking forward to: I'm so looking forward to seeing this littler one! Unfortunately, the ultrasound has been pushed back a week to May 9th, as I'll be shooting a wedding in Hawaii last minute!

Best moment of the week: Hmmm, I'll have to come back to add something. It's been a pretty rough week. As if it weren't hard enough on us as adults to slip back into winter with 19" of snow, the boys are having a heck of a time! They went from playing outside for nearly a week to being cooped up again.

You look great, Leah! And I'm excited for your ultrasound - I'm sure you've got an awesome reveal planned!

So jealous of your trip to Hawaii - right after Mexico, you lucky girl!

Man oh man, I wish I was only up 6 pounds at 18 weeks, yikes!! You look great.

Can't wait to find out who's in there! :)

I can't believe you're almost halfway through already! Hawaii sounds pretty amazing:-) Don't worry too much about the weight gain; it'll come off soon enough!
