Things I Want To Remember: Week 18 | Anchors Aweigh


Things I Want To Remember: Week 18

It's been a fabulous 18 weeks of carrying this little bundle of love! 18 weeks is a special week in pregnancy for me because it's the last week (according to the dating) that I carried Taylor Grace. I am thankful that I have God-willing many more weeks of pregnancy ahead with this sweet boy, but I am also thankful today for those first and only 18 weeks I had carrying my daughter.

1. I still call this phase the "pregnancy sweet spot", and my only real symptoms are frequent bloody noses (so weird, but I'll take those over nausea any day!) and thirst. I guzzle water all day and into the evenings and still feel so thirsty!

2. My stomach is starting to feel tight, and my belly button is starting to flatten. I sort of had a panic moment earlier this week thinking "We aren't even halfway there! How is my body going to do this?!". I feel like I am already pretty big and stretching out more by the day!

3. His movements are starting to feel much more pronounced. Rather than a little fish swimming, it now sometimes feels like something is doing front rolls in my stomach. It's so cool! I tried to let my mom feel when he was moving a lot, but she couldn't feel anything. He is still too small to be felt from the outside, so for now I will enjoy being the only one to feel his sweet little self. :)

4. My mom and I registered this week! It was fun to pick out all the cute and tiny things for our little man, and I hope I actually learn how to use half of them when he arrives. Clueless, party of one.
