Bumpdate / Week 18

How far along: 18 weeks, 3 days.

Baby size: The size of a bell pepper (about 5 1/2 inches)

Must have items: My growing belly has finally started itching so I’ve been all about my cocoa butter lotion every morning and night.

Sleep: Still dealing with RLS most nights but I’m sleeping well overall.

Cravings: Not really craving anything new. Mexican food is always good, but I’ve been more into just the guacamole/chips, beans and rice than I have my usual tacos lately.

Baby movement: I felt the baby kick for the first time Tuesday night! It was the best.

Gender: Shes a girl!

Favorite moment: My favorite moment was definitely feeling the baby kick. I thought I felt it so I put my hand on my belly and waited.. she kicked again! I wasn't exactly sure if I felt it on my hand or just from inside but I had Derek put his hand on my belly just in case and then he felt it too. It was a sweet moment. We called Rowan into our room to try to feel it but she got too impatient after a couple of minutes and went back to her room to watch her movie lol. I have felt the baby moving and kicking every day since then. :)

Least favorite moment: My least favorite moment was feeling lightheaded and “the boat” feeling again on Sunday. The combo made me feel like I was floating around like a ghost all afternoon, and not in a fun Halloween way.

  1. I had those constant "floaty, dizzy" symptoms years ago. Went to a million doctors and no one could figure it out. I dealt with it for two years until I finally found a doctor that put me on Paxil, an anti-depressant/anxiety drug. I know now isn't the time to experiment with drugs considering you're pregnant, but it helped me. I don't have that horrible feeling anymore and I can function like a normal person. I was always against taking medication, but its something I had to get over.
