My post is two days late. I’ve had awful headaches that only get worse when I use technology. I’ve tried to avoid my computer/phone/tv screen as much as possible. Although phone and computer are definitely worse! This morning I am feeling much much better but we shall see what the day brings. It seems to be aggravated with light.
Anyways, Thursday brought 18 weeks and a trip to the doctors! We heard the heartbeat with the doppler and just talked to the doctor. A rather uneventful trip (besides the heavenly sound of a heartbeat). But I’m glad we get to go, I like the reassurance of the doppler. Next Friday we have our anatomy scan at a separate facility. They want a 3D scan and a scan of the heart just because this was an IVF pregnancy, just a precaution.
How far along? 18 Weeks
Total weight gain: 8 lbs
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants whenever I can. I love my two pairs of shorts, their so comfortable. I really don’t need the maternity shirts yet. They just look baggy on me, but the pants are a MUST.
Sleep: Ok, my headaches have been waking me up in the morning. They won’t go away!
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat again at our appointment
Miss anything? FETA cheese! I want a greek salad!
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Not really
Anything making you queasy or sick: The peanut butter and chocolate ice cream shake that Ben made me. We got an ice cream maker for our anniversary. Yum!
Gender: It’s a GIRL. I’m a sucker for the Polo onsies… I bought one on clearance at TJMaxx for 6 months for next summer… wicked cute!
Symptoms: Headaches and leg/hip pain – hopefully yoga will help with this today
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
