I’m currently 18 weeks pregnant and it’s time for another pregnancy update!
I’ll actually be 19 weeks pregnant as of tomorrow, but better late than never, right?
So anyway, the past few weeks have been a breeze! My skin has cleared up tremendously (I’m SO glad I went to the dermatologist) and my headaches are finally starting to dissipate a bit. I’m feeling good!
I’ve gained 7 pounds thus far in my pregnancy. I’m still in my non-maternity clothes although I had to break out a pair of jeans that are a size larger than I normally wear. I do see the weight gain in my face, though, and have pretty much since the moment I found out I was pregnant! Sigh.
We had our anatomy scan yesterday and baby is looking great! Baby 2 is measuring right at the 50th percentile for size, which is refreshing to hear since Noah was only at the 10th percentile at this point in my pregnancy. Baby’s growth is being monitored very closely by a specialist this time around, since Noah was so small (I had issues with the placenta in my last pregnancy, it basically crapped out near the end). It’s really nice to be monitored so closely AND that there seem to be no issues thus far!
Food-wise, I have recently been craving ice cream like crazy. Like, not in a normal, I’m going to have a small cup of ice cream way. It’s BAD. But so, so good.
Finally, we’re starting to plan a bit for Noah’s big boy room. The nursery is going to stay the same (poor Baby 2 gets the shaft!) so Noah is the one who is going to be getting a new room with new furniture. I’m really excited to decorate his room with all his new stuff, when we get it! As of now, I still haven’t decided on a theme, but the convertible crib we’re buying is grey so we may keep the colors navy/grey and add a theme (animals? superheros? any ideas??) to that.
Gender reveal coming next week!!!
