I am getting closer to being half way done! It is becoming real now that I am showing a little more and my clothes are getting tighter.
No weight gain this week, which totally blows my mind considering how much food I am able to consume every 2 SECONDS! I have been eating a large breakfast at 7:00am, apple and peanut butter at 9:00am, banana and peanut butter at 11:00am, lunch at 12:30, more snacks at about 2:00pm, 5:00pm, dinner at 6:30pm, and who knows, sometimes a snack at 8pm too! Yes, I have a jar of peanut butter in my desk at work and I have finished 2.5 jars of peanut butter in the past 6 weeks.
This week I have accomplished something that many people may not have done before. I ate an entire tray of brownies in 3 days! I was partially very impressed with myself, and the other half of me was horrified by the fact that a pan of brownies disappeared in 3 days. The dogs did not eat any and neither did James–even though I did try to blame all three of them. I still can not believe that James did not have even ONE brownie.
This week Baby M is the size of a bell pepper.
MATERNITY CLOTHES? Occasionally. They are much more comfortable now. I have even ventured out to buy more clothes after the realization that I will not fit into my clothes much longer.
SLEEP: Sleeping has been getting more and more uncomfortable. My stomach is now sticking out far enough where it hurts to way on my side. I guess there is sagging going on and I have to make sure that my stomach is supported by a pillow.
MOVEMENT: Still nothing, but my doctor says anywhere from 18 weeks to 22 weeks I will start to feel Baby M kick or flip!
CRAVINGS: This week has been carbs, carbs, and carbs! Blueberry pancakes! Cornbread! You name it, I will eat it. And hamburgers!
EW, GROSS: Eggs are still the winner!
I guess this is what 18 week pregnant Jennifer looks like!
