Playing catch up:
How far along: 18 Weeks- yes, only 18 weeks... if you think I look huge now? just wait... this is why I have never taken weekly preggo pics- it's embarrassing. My babe has no room to go but out. One thing I do not enjoy about being short: I look as wide as I am tall by the end of it... it's not pretty.
Btw, if you want to see the cutest pregnant woman ever- go here :)
Her husband took pictures and made a short slideshow- adorable.
Weight Gained: around 12 pounds- add that to the 5 lbs I gained around the holidays and our vacation right before I found out I was pregnant,
and I am well on my way to chunky town.
Month 1-2 : Pizza and heavy carbs at first because I was so nauseous and only felt decent while eating... which accounts for the 1st trimester weight gain. Grapefruit juice was all I could drink.
Craved sour everything.
Month 3-4: Coke and beer... the two worst things in the world for a preggo lady to drink. Now obviously I don't give in to the beer craving... but it's sooo weird, I never had it with any other pregnancies.
Caaaa-razy dreams this pregnancy...
like ridiculouslylongLordoftheRingsepicjourney type dreams.
Super nauseous but only threw up 3 times (totally different than other pregnancies).
Night sickness beginning at 13 weeks.
Major headaches during the14-15th weeks.
At 16 weeks I started feeling so much better. Lovely.
I totally stopped taking prenatal vitamins. They make me violently sick. I have been taking the boys' Flintstones vitamins most days. Those don't seem to bother me nearly as much.
Feeling: Emotional... way more than usual.
Names I love: Emerson, Ellis, Elliot, Stella, Sailor, Violet, Finn...
David does not like any of my names. I might as well just let him pick something... or the boys. They have come up with some really great names. I think "Hot Sauce," "Benkay," and, "Fingertip" are my favorites so far. :)
Milestones: Last Saturday (the 24th) I felt the baby kick for the first time, and now I am feeling kicks like crazy.
Love, love, love.
