the one about 18 weeks with baby #2

How far along? 18 weeks

Maternity clothes? In my last pregnancy, most of my growth was in my belly. But this one there’s lots of growth in my hips as well. That’s frustrating since all my maternity pants are too big around the belly since they were stretched out, but now all my pre pregnancy jeans don’t fit in the hips. So I have to use my bella band to hold up maternity pants. I did buy some new maternity leggings. since I’ll be pregnant in winter I’ll need more than the 1 pair I had before. They fit very well, and I bought a pair of jogger pants which are not maternity but stretchy. They are amazing. AS far as tops and dresses, I’m good either way. I just can’t wear form fitting pre pregnancy that I don’t want stretched out.

Sleep: It has left me.

Best moment: He kicked for the first time!

Miss Anything?: I miss sleep.

Movement: Yup! I’ve felt the little flutters that make you aware of the movement, but could also be gas bubbles around 15 weeks. Then about 17 weeks I started to feel stronger kicks randomly.

Food cravings: wild berry skittles and chinese food

Anything making you queasy or sick: I was legit sick the last half of week 16. Jack had a virus and gave it over to me. Being sick while you’re pregnant is for the birds.

Gender: a boy! Benjamin ? Stark

Symptoms: Headaches, all the gross girly stuff, stiff legs, basically everything except boob tenderness which is nice. 

Belly Button in or out? in, and i doubt it comes out

Wedding rings on or off? on and comfortable.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I’m pretty happy and chill most of the time. This is a welcome change from the first trimester. But when I’m moody it’s a life or death situation in my brain.

Looking forward to?  Our ultrasound and halloween with Jack! He of course can’t trick or treat, but he’ll probably appreciate his costume and all the attention he’ll get this year. He might get to go around in his wagon while his cousins trick or treat!

    Each pregnancy is different, which is both good and frustrating
