16 In Pregnancy

Pregnancy: Week 18

We are just about 18.5 weeks now, so time for another update! Is it just me or is this flying by??

Not a whole lot of changes this week, other than CONSTANTLY LOOKING ONLINE AT GIRL STUFF. It’s like the flood gates opened and all things cute and girly have rained down upon my Pinterest and bookmark bar. I’m ok with it, except that it is putting a damper on my productivity!

This week’s picture is a little different since we were at my uncle-in-law’s property up in MO and I was wearing a dress, and had makeup on, and knew that wouldn’t happen again for several weeks. Ha! Gotta take these pics when you can!

I also feel like morning sickness has come back this week. Scratch that, it definitely has. At least two mornings this week so far were pretty pukey, ick, so I’m wondering if baby girl is going through a growth spurt or maybe my stomach is just being pushed around. Who knows, but I’m hoping the next few days calm down in that department!

Other than that, not too much to report. Pretty much the same cravings and aversions, though my craving for mexican food is slowly fading which is probably for the best. I have also been able to eat some vegetables here and there, and I’ve been snacking on fresh fruit every few days.

Our next doctor’s appointment is tomorrow, and we’ll get to hear that sweet heartbeat again. Always a good reassurance that she is really in there, and even though I’ve been sick she’s still trucking right along! We’ve decided against doing the genetic quad screening, or whatever it’s called, mainly because it’s one more thing to worry about, and I don’t want to stress over the possibility of a false positive. And at this point, it’s all in God’s hands, and what’s going to happen is going to happen.

Here are a few more highlights:

For the long weekend I’m headed home for some serious shopping and R&R with my parents and family. Adam is staying behind to paint the nursery, and I can’t wait to come back and see the finished product!

Happy Wednesday!

How is your week going? Any big Memorial Day weekend plans?

    Oh how fun to paint it! I’m obsessed with looking at girl rooms and girl things! I have been constantly on websites looking for things 🙂 I think I’m close to narrowing down a crib to buy, and then that will be crossed off the list! I’m close on the colors for the nursery and have the bedding decided! Ahh have fun hearing that heartbeat again! It is the best!

    Even with morning sickness, you look amazing. I hope it all passes soon for you. <3

    Memorial Day – we are going to get to see Jeff Galloway speak, which is pretty exciting, and then we are going to run the third anniversary of our very first 5K. Super excited for that!

    Have a great appointment and be well!

    You are so stinking cute. I LOVE that precious bump! I’m 2 weeks exactly behind you and I can’t wait for mine to pop more! I’m sorry morning sickness came back this week 🙁 I’m on Phenegren and I try to only take it a few times a week but it’s almost impossible to survive a workday without it. I’ve just decided i’m going to puke for 9 months and it is what it is. 🙂 I can’t wait to hear baby girls name! We thought about keeping it a secret for awhile, but we’re so set on it and I know so many pregnant women that I was terrified someone else would claim it before we did! You’re glowing as always!

      Hahah thank you Kylie! You are hilarious. And girl, I am on Phenegren too, since about 8 weeks! It’s a life saver FOR SURE. I can’t take it during the day or else it knocks me out and I sleep all day, so I’ll take it at night sometimes and the effects seem to carry over to the next day, so that’s been super helpful! I’m like you though and don’t want to take it unless I really feel like I need it! Hahaha you and me both – we are just super sensitive to pregnancy hormones apparently! And I love the name you chose! That’s always been on my favorites lists as well! It’s like perfectly manly but cute and sweet 🙂 I’m a little worried someone else will use our girl name, but it’s a name I don’t hear too too often so hopefully we’ll be in the clear! I imagine we won’t be able to keep it a secret for very long though, so you’ll probably hear it eventually! I can’t wait for YOUR bump to pop! I bet it will be any day now!!!

      Exhaustion is no fun!! Adam was laughing the other day at my ability to go from full speed to dead asleep on the couch in seconds!
