With clothes on I don't really look pregnant. I just look like I ate 17 big hot wings last night. Which I did- all you can eat night and I ate all that I could. Now I have gone all the way up to the hottest sauce "Death". Way to go baby K you were a part of that historic moment!
In week 18 my bloat turned into a real baby bump!
I still wear my regular clothes, but most of my work pants don't fit since they are those slide snaps. I did find some pants in the Jr's section at Dillard's that I wear just about every day to work if I'm not in a dress. They are the brand Sloosh and have a band instead of buttons or snaps, I guess like jeggings for work. Weggings anyone? I scored them on New Year's Day for only $11 each! With jeans if they are more of a low rise I can still button them, regular jeans go unbuttoned or just not worn. I also love these shirts (like I'm wearing) from Old Navy, couldn't find them online but they are only $9 in the store.
I haven't had any nausea since week 16 but sometimes have random gag and throwup episodes. Water use to make me nauseous but I linked it to the water cup I was using when I first got sick. I got rid of that cup and now water is my friend again. I'm going to brag that for the last 3 days I've drank drink drunk 68 oz of water while at work!
I am good with all food and have been eating a lot of salads with the BEST homemade dressing. The only craving I've had would be vinegar. I could drink that salad dressing and I've had my fair share of salt & vinegar chips. Pair with cranberry juice and you've got yourself the perfect duo.
At week 6 my fertility Dr told me to stop exercising until 12 weeks, which is when I started to get sick anyway. I have tried to run but only made it about 1/2 a mile before I was out of breath. I haven't been brave enough to get back to body pump and honestly I probably won't. Walks at lunch are about all I've got right now.
That is about it. We tell our families next week if we are having a girl or a boy. Should be fun. Any guesses?
