Joshlynn's Journey - Week 18

Week 18:

Baby size: Sweet potato

How I feel about being pregnant: Whatever the days discomfort may bring, I've been enjoying this pregnancy so much I'm kinda sad I'm almost at the half way point.

What I'm most excited about: Lots and lots of movement this week! Baby loves to favor the left side, which makes me wonder sometimes if that is where my left lower back aches are coming from.  

Symptoms: I've gained one new symptom this week: Itchy skin. I've been lathering in lotion several times a day and that seems to help soothe the itchiness. No signs of stretch marks yet. Back aches are still present, which makes sleeping uncomfortable even with the body pillows. My hunger for food never seems to go away even when I'm full. 

Cravings: No cravings this week. 

Something sweet my husband did for me: As hard as he works to provide for our little family to be, I couldn't ask for a better husband ever! He surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers as he walked through the door . 

Something I've done to prepare for baby: Other than surfing the web for cute nursery ideas, I haven't done much to prepare for baby.   

Special moment: With our little one getting bigger everyday there's no possible way I could squeeze into my pre-pregnancy clothes without being uncomfortable. So, I had a fun mother-daughter day shopping for maternity clothes and lunch afterwards.
