BabyBelly #2: 18 weeks

Almost half way there!

How Far Along? 18 weeks

Weight Gain/Loss: From the last time I weighed myself I think I have only gained 2 pounds. So I am at a total of 12 pounds so far, which I guess isn't that bad but I still have over 4 months to go and I am very afraid of what I will be at the end. I am trying not to focus on that number though since I am pregnant. A coworker told me last week that in her opinion I have only gained in my stomach so that made me feel better. She also asked if I was having twins. That sort of surprised me since I have been thinking twins as well!

Feeling? Exhausted, sticky, sweaty, fat. I hate being prego during the summer months. There have been a few days that just have been brutal at work and its still early yet! I'm looking forward to summer holidays! If I can just get past the summer all will be well!

Maternity Clothes: I got a few more tops for maternity wear but what I really need I think is some lose fitting pants. I really don't want to spend anymore money on maternity wear though! If it was cooler I could just wear my yoga pants all the time but since its so hot out and they are sort of fuzzy material I would roast to death in those things. I can't wait to get back to my own clothes! I think I might buy a belly band though.

Sleep: Sleep hasnt been to bad but the other night I had a night were I couldn't get to sleep for the life of me and kept waking up throughout the night. I'm not sure why, it wasn't because I had to use the washroom or anything. The next day I felt like a walking zombie!

Food Cravings: No food cravings yet!

Movement? I think I have been feeling movement! Mostly on either the left or right hand side near the bottom of my belly. Sometimes up near my belly button. Although I'm not sure how much that is the baby (or babies!) or just gas. I look forward to feeling the little bean kick and punch.

What I miss? My skinny self :(. Being already overweight in the summer prego really sucks!

Best moments this week:  Monkey expanding her vocabulary. I definitely have to watch what I say in case she starts to parrot me!

What am I looking forward to? Long term I am looking forward to being on mat leave again. Short term, getting through this week since I have a week off!

Next appointment: Unfortunately for me I can't get into my OBGYN until early August so I have another appointment with my doctor mid July. I also have my ultrasound in the middle of July! I am looking forward to that so we can see how the little tyke is doing, how many there are and hear the heart beat! My doctor does none of that stuff so it really sucks.

Milestones: Almost half way there!

Gender: It will be a December surprise! (I'm hoping for a boy though. I think I am convinced that it is a boy and that it's twins. I don't know why. I think because I feel like I am showing so huge way early! All the random comments I have been getting from people as well that are surprised at how big I got is just convincing me more. I guess we will see in July! )

Visitors :)

Visitors: Grandma, Aunt Tammy, Missy and Steph come to visit.

My sister messaged me on Facebook yesterday to ask what we were up to on Sunday. She said that she thought mum was going through Monkey withdrawal. :) So they came up to visit us on Sunday along with Missy and Steph. It was a nice visit. Unfortunately Monkey didn't get put down for her nap at the normal time so she was cranky by mid afternoon. She surprised us since she was climbing around on the couch and climbed onto mums lap (I think she was actually trying to get to the end of the couch) but ended up cuddling and then falling asleep! I think that mum rocking her back and forth helped with that a lot. It was the cutest thing ever! She is pretty stubborn and will not fall asleep anywhere but her crib (or the car if she is really tired). Chris was even able to transport her from my mums arms to her crib without waking her up. Poor little thing. We got a picture of her passed out even though it wasn't the greatest shot. We love our little monkey.
