18 Week Update

I have felt ahhhhmazing lately. They say you feel the best in the second trimester and that’s definitely been true. My energy has been up and my sleep is still so great. Can’t believe how fast time is flying though….I feel like we just announced that we were pregnant. And I am SOOOOO excited because we just planned our baby moon and I am very much looking forward to it.

Here’s my little weekly update…

How far along: 18 weeks, baby is the size of a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

Total weight gain: Teetering between 134-135 now. 15 lb weight gain….good lord. 😮

Maternity clothes: Same as last week. I got a few maternity tee shirt dresses from Target that I wear for work. And I am wearing a maternity tank in the picture below….it is SO soft and comfy…need to stock up on more colors.

Symptoms: Hungry all the time and my boobs are insanely big. Also my thirst is unreal…I am always thirsty and have to have water on me at all times.

Sleep: I love my sleep. Luckily I’m still sleeping perfectly fine.

Miss anything: Just hot yoga and not struggling to find outfits in the morning.

Food cravings: None really other than fruit…mango, pineapple, tangelos.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing at all.

Workouts: I am horrible and before pregnancy the only type of exercise I did was hot yoga…now I am up 15 lbs I wanted to start something to make up for missing out on that. We used to hike regularly so I have been trying to do that more often. We are lucky to live at the base of a huge mountain so I have been trying to take advantage of that for workouts.

Wedding rings on/off: On! I think they will be on still for a long, long time. I have super skinny fingers (a size 4) and it was/still is a bit loose when I get cold.

Have you felt the baby move? Yes! Such an amazing feeling but still patiently waiting for that first real kick.

Gender: Still a GIRL!

18 weeks pregnantHope everyone has a great weekend….it is RAINY here today which is awesome. We live in Arizona so we appreciate the rain when we can get it.  Hopefully I can get a fashion post done this weekend too. *fingers crossed*
