18 Weeks

Sorry guys. I am really behind on these. It has been a busy couple of weeks. I don't have a picture to share from 17 weeks to 18 weeks because there wasn't really a growth change. I will post one on the 19 week update. :)

How far along? 18 Weeks
Total weight gain? 9 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes, but just wearing maternity pants. I need to find a really good pair of thick black leggings. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep? This week's sleep has been terrible. Not because I was tired but because my back and my sciatic nerve were killing me. I could not get comfortable. I tried taking baths at 2:00am and 4:00am and nothing seemed to work. Tylenol helped a bit but I was in tears from the pain. I got a prenatal passage to see if that would help and she said there was nothing she could do for me as it was my nerve. I decided to call the OB because having this pain so early on scared me. I honestly can't imagine dealing with this the next 22 weeks. The nurse suggested I try to go to my chiropractor. So I did. Low and behold…chiropractors are a Godsend. It literally took care of the pain immediately. I am going to continue to go every month and keep everything lined up! Our bodies change a lot during pregnancy and there really is no reason to suffer.
Best moment this week? The chiropractor. Hands down.
Miss anything? Not really.
Food cravings? Ice chips (so strange), bananas and apples with peanut butter
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope!
Gender? No idea!
Labor signs? No
Symptoms? Just back pain. Otherwise I feel pretty good.
Belly button in or out? In and I hope it stays this way for a while!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? Cranky. I was in terrible pain all week. But, now I am super happy!!!
Looking forward to? I have a couple interviews lined up for next week so I am hoping they go well so we can buy a house and get the nursery ready in time for baby!
