How far along? 18 weeks (1/2 way for twins!!!)
My babies are the size of: Bell peppers
Net weight gain: 5lbs (now -5lbs from pre pregnancy weight)
Maternity clothes: Yes
Sleep: I am still waking up several times to go potty, and having a hard time falling back asleep, my hips and pelvic girdle pain ache the worse at night so I’m thinking that has a lot to do with it.
Best Moment this week: Celebrating my birthday with my friends and family
Miss Anything?: Beer & Ham
Movement: I’ve been feeling Harper moving every day for the last 3 days – she was just super busy a few minutes ago I am still not really feeling Elliott move, my guess is he is behind his placenta so he is harder to feel, I will confirm at my anatomy scan.
Food Cravings: Salad – ranch, grape tomatoes, cheddar cheese, onion & cucumber
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really
Labor Signs: None
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Weekly Wisdom: Enjoy every moment of your pregnancy, even the bad!
Looking forward to: Anatomy scan on August 6th
Happy 18 weeks folks!! The biggest news in the last week is that my third nephew, Kimball, was born Tuesday super early in the morning! He is super cute and I am so excited that he is going to be so close in age with the twins! I am looking forward to them growing up together! Here are a few pictures of him, one with my beautiful wife – she looks good with a baby doesn’t she?
The picture with the elephant crocheted was made by my lovely wife – she crochets and sews and is actually opening an etsy shop that will be selling bumbo covers, boppy covers, crib sheets, binky clips, little shoes, changing pad covers, pretty much anything you see on etsy – she can replicate. She’s pretty awesome! If anyone is interested in her making something for you – we can even do custom orders – for example if you are a Yankees fan and want a Yankees bumbo cover we can get that specific fabric for you! Any blogger friends will get a 10% discount! Comment if you are interested!
Not sure if anything can really top a super cute nephew being born, but we did some other fun things this week. Sunday was my 26th birthday – we went out to breakfast with our friends and then just lounged around the house the rest of the day, we went to my mom’s for dinner around 5 but were only there for a short period of time because I was ready to go back and snuggle into bed! Sometimes you just can’t beat a lazy day at home.
I am feeling more and more pregnant every day, and cannot believe that I am going to continue to get bigger; I am already feeling like I am the size of a house! On August 6th we will have an OBGYN appointment where we will get to meet our doctor for the first time (she delivered our nephew!) and then later that day we have our ANATOMY SCAN!! I am so excited to see these little babies and while I’m gaining weight and feeling them (Harper at least) move I still get anxious about them growing and doing what they’re supposed to be doing in there! Holding Kimball just confirms that this is meant to happen for us. It felt so right to be holding a baby; of course I want that baby to be mine! We better tell Sarah to keep Kimball on a tight watch Devan and I might steal him!
There really isn’t much more to update on, so I’ll leave you with my weekly belly shot! This picture has my 14 week belly shot next to my 18 week belly shot (wearing the same outfit, insane how much can change in a month)
Happy Thursday! I’m hoping to read about a bunch of pregnant blogger friends soon 🙂
