Happy Sunday, everyone! How’re your weekend going to far? Last week I never fotr the 18 week bumpdate up because Daylight Savings hated me and I hated it, but I’m here with 19 weeks! Let’s get on into it.
Cravings: Do I need to mention my never-ending love affair with Chipotle? (Thank God we don’t live in Washington!!) Besides that, I’ve been dying for homemade spaghetti and meatballs, which is weird since a few weeks ago I didn’t even want to think about it. Also digging pizza and a burger!! And a huge salad.
Aversions: Don’t tell Alex, but smoked meat? Like barbecue. But today Alex is having 2 friends come by to help him with a truck thing and he’s making ribs, soooo…..
Sleep: Bad, bad, bad, but not because of the bellybabe. Weaning has been taking everything out of me. Last night thankfully wasn’t too bad, 2 short wake ups and awake at 6, but lately it’s been up at 4 ish. Please, someone inform my child that it’s not “sleeping through the night” is it’s over 3 hours from where you “should” be waking up?
Nursing: Completely done, which has left me a hormonal mess. Look out for the first post on our weaning experience in the (relatively) near future!
Anything Else? We had our (belated) 16 week appointment (this should have been in the 18 week bumpdate) and all looks well! We find out the gender on the 18th and to say I’m excited would be the understatement of the century. Also, as of Friday I’m starting to feel the kicks on the outside! They’re light and rare, but very cool!
