How far along: 18 weeks 6 days
How much do I weigh: 50,6 kg (+ 1,8 kg) – I weighed 53 kg at the OB which almost made me faint (it was right in the morning), BUT I had all my clothes and boots on. The last times I always wore summer clothes but this time it was pretty much winter here.
Belly size: It’s getting bigger day by day it seems. Sorry, my hollow-back is showing again, I’ve always had problems keeping my back straight. My trainers at the gym tell me all the time
Sleep: Pretty good. I wake up once to go to the bathroom but fall asleep easily
Food (non) cravings: No typical (non) cravings, everything as usual
Symptoms: The uterus is stretching and I can feel it. It didn’t hurt as much this week like it did last week.
Maternity clothes: The pants. They’re a bit too big and I don’t feel too good in them, plus I need to get them shortened. I think if I’d feel comfortable in my maternity pants I’d feel more comfortable with my big belly. I might buy one more pair of pants at a different store.
Stretch marks: Nope
Miss anything: Nope
Looking forward to: Seeing my baby again in two weeks I’m also looking forward on picking up the diaper changing table in three days and painting that.
Best happenings this week:
- Seeing our baby! He’s so active which was nice to see, read about it in the gender reveal post.
- Meeting the midwife. She dropped by yesterday afternoon and the bubby and I could meet her personally. She’s very nice and friendly, it seems like she doesn’t want to press her opinion on the mothers but also wants that the moms feel comfortable with their/her choices. She’ll help me after the birth, showing me how to breastfeed, weigh the baby and things like that. I can call her anytime I want before the birth as well but if all goes good with me and the baby, the next time I’ll see her is in February 2015.
- Moving the big couch out of the baby room into the living room Now we have space for the baby furniture and a huge sitting area in the living room. The colors of the couches don’t match (one is brown, the other one grey) but oh well. It’s the best and only solution.
Here are some photos of our baby
Gender: A baby-boy – 100%!!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! I don’t think I’m too moody, but you’d have to read the blog of my boyfriend for his opinion. He doesn’t have a blog?! Dang…
Sports: What now?
