18 Weeks (Baby #2)

hump day bump day, pregnancy

How far along - 18 weeks, due November 30th

Gender - We find out next month. Aria has switched from a baby brother to a baby sister prediction.

Cravings - Fruit, sweets, and baked potatoes.

Aversions - Fish. Turkey burgers, they are on the outs again.

Best moment - Winning a gift card to Pink Blush. I promptly ordered a dress and top, after much deliberation because there were too many pretty choices.

Looking forward to - Finding out the sex. Putting together a Baby #2 wish list. Feeling more movement.

Miss anything - Alcohol, energy, and being able to sleep comfortably.

Movement - I'm fairly certain the pops and wiggles are Baby #2, but I still haven't had that "absolutely certain" moment.

Other pregnancy symptoms - Exhaustion. Lower back pain. I had a day of hip pain as well, which was a reminder of how pleasant that is. But, I'm feeling pretty good and mostly normal.

Aria's thoughts -We have many talks about all the things that go along with Baby #2 - sharing toys, sharing mommy & daddy, being gentle, etc. And, she is still on board with the whole big sister thing. I asked her if she was excited for her baby brother or baby sister? She said "I'm always excited about that, and it's a girl baby you know."

  2. I think not feeling a baby move is my belly is the thing I miss most about being pregnant. I'mean glad you're feeling mostly normal. Aria is too funny, "...and it's a baby girl you know." Made me laugh out loud.

  14. Yay for winning a gift card! Pink Blush has really cute things, I cant wait to see what you got. I was told not to vacuum when I was pregnant because of sciatica pain, maybe you can tell Chris that and save your back.

  16. We have the same cravings! No pregnancy here though. Did you save much baby stuff from Aria or are you starting from scratch? I'm so excited for the gender reveal too! Aria's kinda cheating by choosing both genders ;)
