Week 18

I LOOK: While I think I look pretty darn pregnant, everyone else says I look the same. Thankfully my pimples are pretty much gone (minus the scar, gross!).
  • Total Weight Gain: +5 lbs (1 lb from two weeks ago)
  • Maternity Clothes: 100% of pants and a few maternity shirts mixed in with my normal clothes

I FEEL: Pregnant? My belly is firm! Yesterday, as I leaned over a table, I felt the belly in the way and it was a pretty strange. I'm still pretty tired by the end of the day, but the mornings have gotten a lot better over this past week. Tawni and Robyn report that soon after 18w they started feeling energy again, so I'm hoping for that.
  • Baby Movements: I'm sure now; it isn't just gas, the baby is moving and I can feel it :) I feel the baby mostly during the day when I've sitting between classes.

I CRAVE: Cream cheese! Eating it plan seems a bit insane, so I've been piling it on bread and onion bagels.

I THINK: Pregnant "brain" is real and my poor students have to deal with it.

I HOPE: I start to look pregnant soon.

DOCs SAY: At my appointment on 10/20, we heard a healthy heart beat of 151. My midwife also reported that my uterus was measuing pretty high and suggested that the baby is bigger/old than my due date suggests. Other than that, everything else checked out as normal.

  1. Pregnant brain doesn't go away after you have the baby either! It just becomes mommy brain! I hope it's just the lack of sleep and it will go away soon.
