18 week update

I am 18 weeks pregnant today! 2 more weeks until the anatomy scan! Yes, I am counting down 😛 This week has been different than the others. This baby is moving like crazy! My little night owl loves to move the most right when I am going to bed. On Friday I felt the first actual kick, which was more like a poke, because the baby isn’t as strong yet. I have felt a lot of those lately. It’s so exciting! But when I am dozing off and then feel it… it startles me a little lol Aaron cannot WAIT to feel movement!

I went to the doctor again this week. Everything is fine 🙂 Just a suspected UTI. It came back negative. I’ve just had some pressure and the CONSTANT need to go pee and they wanted to play it safe. Baby is just growing growing growing!

As far as symptoms go, I still have that lovely round ligament pain. No fun. My appetite has been through the roof which comes with good news! Weight gain! Almost 2 pounds since last week. Just gotta keep gainin’! I’ve been getting little headaches here and there. Not my typical migraine ones though so I am at least able to function. Back pain is another one that has completely SUCKED. My lower back hurts terribly sometimes. It just comes with the territory of growing a little human being 🙂 ❤

Baby is the size of a sweet potato this week! 5.5 inches long and weighs about 7 ounces! Baby can now yawn, hiccup, and swallow! Baby’s sense of hearing is getting better every day and that is one of the most exciting things to me 🙂 Just a side note, I had another dream! This time, it was the anatomy scan. The baby had… an adult sized penis on the ultrasound lmao SO there’s my first boy dream!
