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!"
