So technically I am 18 weeks at midnight tonight but who’s counting? 2 more weeks until we are half way and 21 days until we find out if it is a boy or a girl!
Changes this week:
-I can no longer even think about eating guacamole. The workers at Costa Vida (my friends because I am there so often) laughed at me last night when I said no guac. I told them why and they forgave me for skipping the ‘best’ part of the meal and added more mango salsa instead.
-Not too many changes with my stomach (remember I am tall:) but more like the baby (or the multiple Blizzards) is growing into my backside. A little junk in the trunk never hurt anyone:)
-I had a few nights where I was reminded of the lame sauce nausea of the first trimester but I would just go to bed before the sun went down which made it all go away.
-You know how they say you have a heightened sense of smell when you are pregnant? It is more true than I could have ever imagined. Just try teaching a PE class with high school boys in it. It hurts.
-I feel full a lot faster than I used to. I don’t know why because I am not that far along but I just get full fast. It used to take a half a pizza for me to notice that I ate anything but now I get full after 2 or 3 pieces…madness. I am just snacking a lot more which is actually really fun.
The book I am reading (by the Mayo clinic) said that starting this week the baby can swallow and can also start hearing noises. This means no more heavy metal rock concerts for me and Billy.
Billy is also going to start singing morning and night to the baby. I haven’t told him about this yet but since I have sung made-up songs to him daily for the past 3 years of our marriage, it is totally his turn;)
Some DELICIOUS double duty foods….good for the baby and good for your running:) You see that white potatoes are on there right?
Did you experience nausea while pregnant? What helped you to feel better?
-I am very talented at falling asleep anytime and anywhere and when I felt really nauseated I would usually eat a little something and then fall asleep. I totally took a nap under my desk after school yesterday. Don’t worry, my bosses know about it and say it is totally fine if I am feeling really tired or sick.
I need recommendations for good BABY BLOGS…help a sister out:) LINK AWAY!!!!
