Well I have to say this week has been way better in terms of my mood. I feel much happier, much more stable. Worried still, yes, but overall way better!
The little one is now 14 cm – the size of a bell pepper! And kick kick kicking. I love it so much. My belly is growing and I’m feeling pretty good.
18 Week Update
Workouts: Not a whole lot of yoga this week but I have been working to stretch my hip flexors every night. And walking. And my husband and I have planned to go to the gym every Saturday morning together. First ‘date’ is this Saturday, we’ll see how that goes!
Symptoms: I’m happy to report that my skin is looking glowy! So that’s fun. My digestive system on the other hand, no so fun. I’ve been getting a bit of round ligament pain and my hips…oh my poor hips, already! And my eyes – this didn’t happen with my first but my vision has been all messed up. Apparently that’s normal?
Food Aversions: All good to go!
Food Cravings: This week I haven’t been craving anything. In fact, food has not even been appealing to me. What’s the fun in being pregnant if you can’t indulge in those cravings!!
Sleep: So so bad. I think it’s safe to say that I have pregnancy insomnia. Takes me forever to fall asleep and then I wake really easily only to be left tossing and turning for what feels like hours again.
Miss Anything? Nothing really this week. A good night’s sleep maybe.
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: This week flew by! I’ve been feeling a lot more kicks and had a rather disappointing midwife appointment (they haven’t received my genetic testing results which I did 5 weeks ago). Got a new book from the library. My son is now 18 months old!!! And he’s been sleeping like crazy and chatting up a storm (no real english words yet but man he’s chatty in that odd language of his!).
