18 weeks {babybrink#2}

kisses for baby
Size of baby: about the size of a bell pepper! 

Movement: when I read up on the size of our baby at 18 weeks, it mentioned that baby is busy flexing his/her arms and legs now! That totally explains the difference in movement I've been feeling! Before it was mostly a rolling sensation but in the last couple of days I've noticed more distinct jabs and pokes in there :)

Cravings: I'm still craving those stupid gourmet chicken tacos from Rubio's! I haven't indulged in a couple of weeks and each day that passes by, the craving grows stronger, ha ha! I've also had major cravings for chocolate chip cookies- the dough, gooey cookies AND well done. I want it alllll, ha ha! It's both a good thing and torture that I rarely give in to my cravings! Grapefruit is really hitting the spot as well these days... for Eric and Mia as well! Yum!

Miss anything: I can tell you right now that each week from here on out I will be mentioning how I miss being pain free, ha! I have noticed a lot of hip pain (in my lower back area) this past week. It seems crazy to me to already be feeling this pain since I hardly have anything to show for a bump, but things are definitely growing and changing on the inside! I had major hip pain with Mia as well so it makes sense that I'm already experiencing this!

Random: I am still running outside 3 days a week! Granted it's only a slow 2 mile run each time, but I'm still running! I had to stop at 16 weeks with Mia but I wasn't as in shape when I got pregnant with her as I was this time around. I'm curious to see how long my body lets me run this time!

Best moment of the week: one night while getting Mia ready for bed she was really into the baby... she kept giving my belly hugs and kisses, laying her head on my belly (prolonging the bed time process, I'm sure!) and talking to baby. I asked her what the baby's name was and after deliberating for just a few minutes she excitedly told me, "'incess!!" I said, "Princess?!" She was SO excited, "YEAH! Baby Princess!"

Last chance to enter the Glambanners giveaway. This is such a fun one that everyone should be entering ;) And while you're at it, last chance to tell me your guess, GIRL or BOY?!

I'm going with Girl. Mia has been so in tune with your pregnancy, that if she says baby's name is princess I'm going to believe it's a girl!

Love that photo and the fact that she is so in tune with the baby--she's gonna be such a good big sister!
You can still run further than I can, so there's that! haha

Way to go on still running! I'm down to a slow walk at this point. Grapefruit has really been hitting the spot for me this pregnancy too. And pineapple and lemon water. So refreshing :) Love that pic of you and Mia!

Joie de Viv said...

Adorable! And oh the hip and back pain! It started so early for me with this one too! And the insane bladder pressure. Oh the joys of pregnancy. But the little kicks and big sis kisses are worth it!

Eeekk! Just catching up! Yay for baby movements! That was one of the best feelings ever for me!
And umm, now that you know it is a boy... maybe Mia will change her mind to baby prince? LOL

Ah, I love the updates! Good for you on still running! The other day I went for my first run since before I was pregnant with Caleb - I guess I dropped the ball a bit, ha!
