18 Week Pregnancy Update

18 Week Pregnancy Update | Pine Barren Beauty

Hi babes! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared a pregnancy update, so I thought now was a good time! I’m going to try to do these monthly but we’ll see how it all goes.

Since my first trimester update, not much has changed. I’m 18 weeks and 2 days as of today! The nausea I had been feeling 24/7 in the beginning subsided around week 16 which has been amazing. I feel like I can eat so much more now. As far as appetite goes, I’ve been open to whatever. The only thing that doesn’t sound great is seafood, but that’s probably because we had salmon like three weeks in a row haha. If there’s anything I’m craving it would be Mexican. Before pregnancy, I could always go for Mexican, and now it’s just the same x1000 lol.

As far as exhaustion goes,I’m still pretty tired, so I’ve been trying to get as much sleep as I can, while I still can. I’m a sleeper, and if there’s one thing I’m really nervous about when baby comes, it the lack of sleep. Fingers crossed this babe is like his/her mama!

I’m definitely starting to show a little bit more, but not as much as I thought I would be or as much as other girls who I know that are pregnant and around the same timeline as me. * Side note: this is why pregnancy is such a beautiful thing. Everyone’s bodies are unique and it’s amazing what pregnancy looks like on all different people! * In the morning, I have a little bump that could pass for a food baby haha. But at the end of the day, it’s usually pretty noticeable! It’s been weird because I haven’t wanted to buy a ton of clothes yet, because I’m not sure when I’m really going to pop and what will fit or look okay! So we will see how that goes when the time comes.

All of our appointments have been great and we go in a few weeks for the anatomy scan! I think I made it for like 21 weeks because then it’s one week before MDW, which is when we are having our gender reveal! Rob would be just as happy being surprised as he will be with finding out the gender. Needless to say, he’s going to be the one hiding the envelope from me for a week so I don’t open it too soon! We both want to be surprised at the gender reveal and I CAN’T wait to know if it’s a boy or girl so I can really start planning!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
