Baby is the size of an heirloom tomato. It weighs about 8.5 oz, and is about 6 inches long crown to rump. You can finally see my bump in this picture! Suddenly this week, it popped, and now it is apparent that I am pregnant. It is still tiny, but it’s there!
Total gained so far: 7 pounds
Week 18- 1 pound
Not too many- one headache day, and some back pain.
Prenatal yoga, modified T25, and walking
I just want a dessert everyday. I have let it get a little out of hand, so I’m going to reign it in.
None, but I bought a few books. One on newborn care, and two on sleep training without crying. For some reason I have been thinking about sleep training and how I can’t see myself letting my baby cry. Different things work for everyone, of course! Who knows! I might totally change my tune once the baby is here, but I figured I would start reading up on sleep training without crying it out.
Week 18 Milestones
None, really that I can think of. I started going back to work, so I have been really busy and a little distracted! I love feeling the baby move, though, and check in with myself a few times a day to make sure I have felt it.
Looking forward to:
Still waiting on that ultrasound!!!!
It was fun fully going back to work and seeing everyone and talking about the baby! Also we babysat my cousin’s baby who is 9 months old, so it was really fun to get a glimpse into what our life will look like soon! It will be busy and tiring but so worth it!!
