(Please excuse my little house shoes–it’s so cold here today!)
How Far Along: 18 Weeks*
Size of Baby: Sweet Potato
Weight Gain: 5 pounds
Movement: Nothing yet!
Cravings: Still nothing weird or exciting. Sugar is more appetizing to me again, and I often want something salty like chips or crackers.
Food Aversions: Nothing to report this week. :)
Symptoms: Still having some headaches, and Saturday brought on the worst one I’ve had yet. I’m hoping it’s connected to all the drastic weather changes we’ve had lately! I haven’t had one since then which is positively lovely.
My hips are still sore from time to time, but I haven’t noticed them for a couple of days so hopefully that’s abating too!
The Hubster and I went yard saling on Saturday to try and look for some more baby items. It was my first time going in Pretty City (I always travel home to B-town to go with my mom) and it was a bit of bust. I realize that it’s late in the year, but there were hardly any. I did manage to pick up a cute newborn bathtub for $6, as well as a couple of dairy-free cookbooks with some fabulous ideas for me to make for the Hubster!
Sadly, no crib. I’m going to start exploring the stores looking for a good deal… unless someone has one that they want to give / sell me? :)
I’m still fitting into all my own clothes, although that top button my pants is becoming ever more unfriendly. I put on a pair of jeans today for the first time since June and they still fit nicely, but I know it won’t be for long…
We have only NINE sleeps left until we can (hopefully) find out what we’re having! We have names we like for both a boy and a girl, so we’re set either way and would be thrilled with either one. Most people still seem to think we’re having a girl… I still don’t have any inclination either way.
Some people say they can tell by the way the bump looks… anyone?
