Hope you all had a great weekend! Two weeks have passed again… so it’s time to check in on the bump!
How far along: 18 weeks
Total weight gain: up 6-7 lbs
Maternity clothes: Still belly band-ing most days.
Sleep: Mostly good, with a few bouts of insomnia around 4 or 5am. I hope that passes.
Miss anything: Not much until I saw everyone sharing their margaritas on Instagram for Saturday’s National Margarita day!
Movement: Yes! Although I’m still the only one who can feel it.
Food cravings: Bagels and cream cheese… something I never cared for before.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, feeling good.
Have you started to show yet: I think so, but it depends what I’m wearing. Some friends say they wouldn’t assume it if they didn’t know me.
Gender: We find out in two weeks!
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly good. A few teary moments when L pushes my buttons or I’m watching a sappy scene and I remember there are extra hormones raging through my body.
Looking forward to: The gender news!
I don’t feel big yet, but I’m definitely bigger than my first pregnancy. Which fuels my prediction that it’s a boy, but who knows! I’ll see if I can do some comparison photos for the 20 week post.
Isn’t this tank so cute? I am in love with my maternity workout gear.
The material is amazing- it’s extremely soft and comfortable, but also a high performance, wicking tech fabric for sweating in. There are several style and text options. Here’s a little more from For Two Fitness:
