I can’t believe I’m 18 weeks and just entered my 5th month! It feels crazy! Today I was supposed to have my anatomy scan but when I showed up to my dr. I found out they had cancelled my appointment, they said they had tried to contact me which I never had any messages and I had called them about 20 minutes before the appointment because traffic was going to make me 5-10 minutes late and they didn’t mention then that I would be rescheduled but I walk into the clinic and then they tell me! I was so frustrated!
I only have a couple of shirts that fit me and my belly is only getting bigger so I went to Ross a discount clothing store and found a few more shirts, I also got some shorts because the weather is getting warm and I’m due in August so it’s going to be a hot summer with a big belly, I even bought a cute dress I can wear to student teaching or my baby shower or really anything!
I really look forward to the baby shower, but I’m not planning it my sister is which is hard for me to accept because she’s out of town and can be rather flaky. So giving up any control can be difficult. Not to mention that last pregnancy I had 2 baby showers one up north with all my siblings and one down here at my house with my friends and the 2 parties were completely different. The one with my siblings was sweet traditional baby shower, where as the one down here was a little more co-ed wild. At my first one it was in the morning with a few snacks traditional games. The one down here had guys jugging beer (or mixed drinks) out of a bottle, a diaper war where the women threw diapers at the guys and they had baskets they had to catch them in. One party was calm and sweet, and the other was hilarious and loud the second one I planned so it was a bit more my style and it was more fun, not that I didn’t enjoy the one with my siblings it was just a bit more fun at my house. I told my sister I wanted and late afternoon/evening party so we could bbq and let the guys chat and drink if they wanted. And she is planning it for 1pm which isn’t really lets drink and be loud kinda party. IDK I’m not sure how co-ed she is planning this and I really like my hubby being part of the party…. I’ve expressed that to my sister and she seems to not really be listening so IDK I can’t throw 2 baby showers that just doesn’t make sense so I think I’m going to have to be fine with a sweet elegant not my style kinda baby shower…
I’m even okay with not having any alcohol their (sorry male friends) but it will still be a lot of fun with the co-ed games we have planned. I’m hoping my siblings will understand why I want it later in the day so that my husband and other friends can be there!
So onto the update stuff:
Symptoms: Moody, irritable, starving all the time, and headaches have put me on my ass more than once.
Bump: Is definitely showing and much larger at 18 weeks than I was with Dalton at 18 weeks so that whole 2nd pregnancy thing is ringing true for me..
17 weeks pregnant 1st pregnancy
17 weeks pregnant 2nd pregnancy
1st pregnancy 2nd pregnancy both 17 weeks
(my arms were in much better shape in 1st pregnancy I’m going to be doing some really light weights to tone my arms)
Maternity clothes: Yes, definitely
Weight gain: 6lbs
Names: Yes I think we have it picked out but were going to start using it to see how we like it before telling the world…
Most exciting moment: Feeling her kicking more and more even my hubby got to feel her kick once!
Things I’m looking forward to: Anatomy scan next week
Preparation: I’ve made a list of some of the things I’d like to do before she arrives and when I should start those projects… I’m not starting any until my semester is over! Such as sewing her a few things, meal preps, putting her section of our room together getting her scrap book together (and getting Dalton’s all caught up)… I’d also like to get back into yoga!
