Another week has flown by. I do wish it would slow down a little! I have felt pretty good this week, some days I ever forget I am pregnant for a little while because I am feeling much more normal.
The belly is definitely growing (sadly, along with other parts, ha!) and I can’t wait for my anatomy scan next Wednesday!
Let’s compare week 12 and week 18 to see how much I have changed in 6 short weeks.
Yikes! II t’s crazy to think I am going to get SO much bigger, too. Oy.
So let’s take a look at how this past week has gone:
Symptoms: A lot of the same…acne, peeing a lot, tired, can’t focus well, emotions all over the place, round ligament pain when I run, get lightheaded if I stand up too fast. But honestly, those symptoms while annoying, don’t really change my ability to function on a somewhat normal level, so I am feeling good this week.
Baby’s Size: Sweet potato and bell pepper are the two I have seen.
Maternity Clothes: Nothing new, but can fit into less and less of my normal things!
Stretch Marks: still ok
Sleep: Eh. I have no trouble falling asleep but if I wake up in the night I am wide awake at least an hour or two, and it’s maddening! Plus I pee 1-3 times a night.
Miss Anything?: Sleeping on my stomach. That will be a glorious day!
Cravings: My sweet tooth has been in overdrive, especially for chocolate. Easter candy was consumed in abundance.
Aversions: Still iffy on veggies, red sauce, and large portions of protein in one sitting. I snack a lot.
Looking Forward to: Seeing my family this weekend, although the occasion is sad (my grandmothers funeral).
What I’m Loving: Feeling relatively normal this past week. It’s been nice to feel a little more like myself and not like my body has been taken over.
Workouts: Not as good this week. After my race last weekend I took it easy for a few days because my round ligament paid was bad from the race. I did walk five times, run 2.5 miles once, and did the stationary bike at the gym + arm weights once.
QOTD: Ladies who have been pregnant: Did you feel “normal” at this stage? Anyone else: How were your workouts last week?
