I need to do a post on annoying questions/things people say to pregnant women. Really. Because I have good (snarky) replies to most of them.
How far along am I: 18 Weeks
Size of baby: McLittle is now the size of a sweet potato. This, of course, is all relative, seeing how sweet potatoes vary in size.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I’ve gained about 14 pounds since mid-December.
Clothes: My mom took me shopping this past weekend. I think that she was embarrassed by the constant wearing of t-shirts and running pants (or shorts, as this week has been very warm!) She says that she was just contributing and being nice. (I guess that’s a good reason.) Now that I’m wearing more maternity shirts, I’m REALLY getting strange looks from people that are afraid to ask me if I’m pregnant at work. 🙂
Gender: We’ll know this time next week!
Movement: Not really feeling anything.
Sleep: Since I started taking the iron supplements, I haven’t been exhausted! My sleep at night continues to be great.
What I miss: Still doing things for myself, like lifting things at Lowes. And doing my own yard work.
Cravings: Pineapple. I’ve figured out that canned (Dole!) pineapple is a great substitute for fresh pineapple. Now, if someone can just explain that to my husband who accidentally bought Del Monte. I ate it (and didn’t complain), but I’m going to do the shopping this weekend.
Symptoms: We’ll test out the car sickness this weekend. Other than that, I’ve felt great and (mostly) normal.
Best moment this week: I’ve been outside a lot this week. I’ve loved working with the flowers in my yard – and I know I’m going to miss that this summer when it’s too hot to sit outside.
I really need to work on these photos, and put a little more effort into them. Or maybe have my husband take more than one picture before running out of the house. (I forced him to take the picture as he was trying to leave this morning – it may be replaced this evening with a better photo.) Also? This shirt doesn’t do much for me. It’s one of the more flowing shirts I’ve been wearing. One more thing. These are my regular pre-pregnancy jeans. All buttoned and zipped on their own. That makes me very happy!
