Bump-date: 18 Weeks


How far along: 18 weeks

Baby’s size: a sweet potato, a croissant, or a sugar glider... this might be my favorite week yet!

Maternity clothes: each week, more of my "regular" clothes get tossed in the "things I can no longer wear" pile... but I'm not fully in maternity stuff quite yet!

Stretch marks: nope, but I have been feeling itchy lately... slathering on lotion all the time!

Loving: Chipotle, our freshly-stained porch and deck, iced decaf coffee (my summer love is back!), fresh peaches, this dress that I've been wearing a lot

Loathing: straightening my hair then going outside into the humidity

Movement: BIG NEWS. There is a possibility that I felt the first kick / punch on Thursday. It was one swift, distinct sensation... and then I never felt anything again. So I may have imagined that, or it may have been something else. Waiting to see if there are more developments!

Symptoms: still getting some headaches and feeling a little bloated - nothing new though. I think that I have a pinched nerve in my shoulder, which is really making me feel awful, but that is not pregnancy-related, as far as I know.

Workouts: BodyPump, 30 minutes of hills on the elliptical, walking all over Philadelphia on Saturday

Mood: generally good, but I do get tired and crabby if I do too much

Husband: made me that amazing fried-green-tomato-BLT and got even more work done in the nursery while I was away for the weekend - hooray!

Can't wait for: a prenatal massage this Friday -  I am trying out a new location in downtown Fredericksburg and hoping that it is amazing!
