18 Weeks

We’re a week out from the amnio and everything has been going great. I didn’t have any cramping or issues after the amnio. I’ve checked on bubs a few times with the doppler and he seems to be doing great. I’ve been feeling him moving more as well so that’s been reassuring as well.

Weekly Update:

How far along: 18 Weeks

How big is baby: Size of a sweet potato, about 5.5in/14cm

Symptoms: It seems like I might be going through a “better” stretch in this department. It’s not great, but seems better than last week

Movement: I definitely felt him move a time or two. I don’t notice it so much during the day when I’m busy, but when I’m sitting or laying down at night I can feel him sometimes.

Sleep: I started taking short epson salt baths/soaks before bed and it’s really been helping with the restless legs which had been making it hard to fall asleep. So I’ve been sleeping a bit better the last few nights

Food cravings?  Still fruit, especially nectarines and peaches. Milk and orange juice

Food Aversions? Not really so much this last week. I’ve even managed to cook meat for dinner a time or two

Anything making you queasy or sick? having an empty stomach

Best moment of the week? not having any issues after the amnio and being able to feel baby more

Next appointment:  My next OB appt is 9/6 and the anatomy scan will be Sept 16th
