11.1.12

189. 18 week pregnancy update!



How far along: 18 weeks 5 days.

How big is baby: About as big as a sweet potato, about 5.6 inches long and 6.7 ounces now and s/he keeps on growing rapidly.

Maternity clothes: My jeans won;t come until the end of February, but I ordered a couple more pairs of trousers in the ASOS sale, so I might bust them out soon!

Stretch marks: No, applying Bio Oil after every shower just in case!

Sleep: Okay, not great. I keep waking up during the night which isn;t fun, and feeling super exhausted from the trek to get Daniel every day! I'm hoping I'll get used to it, soon!

Best moment this week: We went to the midwife on Friday and heard the heartbeat. That tiny, super-fast pulse made my heart race and bought tears to my eyes!

Belly button in or out: Half out!

Craving: Fruit salads mostly, and fruit juice.

What I miss: Not going to the toilet every five minutes! I'm making an effort to drink more water, as I don't drink nearly enough, but it's meaning constant trips to the loo!

What am I looking forward to: 16 days till we find out blue or pink!

Milestones: S/he is yawning, hiccuping, sucking, swallowing, twisting, rolling, punching and kicking! This baby is more active than me!



Giving the baby kisses! Adorable right?!

Got my energy (and appetite!) back this week, and have been having great fun hanging out with my little family of three! We're getting to spend a lot more time together, and I'm trying to plan things for us to do so we don;t just sit around (this week is bus week!) and make the most of the time! Speaking of which, I should probably get off the computer and snuggle my boyfriend!!

Lots of Love
Momma B & Babyboy
