Maternity Update: Weeks 18-27

How Far Along: 27 Weeks today!

Size of Baby: Cucumber

Gender: Female

Name: Lily Faith

Weight Gain: Yes.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, but I'd kill for a good pair of sweats and a tshirt like a normal human being.

Movement: I feel her pretty regularly and especially at night. Her feet are on my right side.

Symptoms: Indigestion. Indigestion. Indigestion. See also: Lovely Sciatica.

Sleep: I haven't slept well since I found out I was pregnant because I'm a tummy sleeper. I do have an occasional good night of sleep.

Cravings: Mango Magic smoothies from Tropical Smoothies.

What I miss: I still miss alcohol and good sleep. But for now, I'm trying to focus on my time with her and being in the moment.

Best Moment of the Week: Had a doctor's appointment today. We got to hear her heartbeat and it's at 151. Doctor was pleased and said it was regular for now which was good. We also got to see her on ultrasound. She also has no fluid on her heart or lungs. She doesn't have a ton of room to move around and I can tell that. It's still wonderful to see her little hands and feet in there.

Looking forward to: Seeing her face. We have yet to see her face in all that is going on and today was no different. She's definitely stubborn. I'll give her that.

We have good days and bad days still, but the bad days don't seem to last all day anymore. Studying for the bar again has given me a focus and a drive to look forward to our future. Brandon is back at work and doing much better. I'll post about our new normal soon. Hope this finds you well.

Happy Tuesday!

Boo for sciatica. Ans the Tylenol that you can take doesn't cut that out at all.

Thinking of you daily! If you need anything from someone local, please let me know!
