18 Weeks

How far along: 18 Weeks
Total weight gain: Nothing yet. 
Baby Size: Baby is the size of a bell pepper. She is about 5 /12 inches long and weighs 7 ounces. 
Movement: I don't think I feel anything yet and it is making me so nervous. I felt a lot more at this time with Jack. Can't wait to feel lots of movement. 
Sleep: Since I hurt my back sleeping is rough. I'm falling asleep just fine but I find any movement has been really uncomfortable.
Cravings/Aversions: It's weird. I have no appetite at all! Nothing seems tasty to me. I really am only eating to sustain. I seem to crave things but I usually have a few bites and thats about all I'm interested in. I have been craving juices, iced teas and anything iced cold. Passion fruit shaken tea from Starbucks has been a new favorite. 
Symptoms: Pelvis pain- I initially thought it was round ligament pain but the pain in my pelvis stops me in my tracks! I have to get up really slowly in order to feel less pain. Dry eyes- My eyes are so itchy. I need to get myself some eye drops. Heartburn- I'be already got my large Tums bottle ready for myself. 
Exercise: I've been walking as much as I can. I have also become obsessed with prenatal yoga. I feel like it's really helping. 
Mood: My mood is up and down a lot. My husband and I got in a fight and I didn't speak to him for 4 days. Thankfully everything is ok with us now. On Saturday I had a little meltdown at the meltdown at the mall with my mom because Jack was basically just being a toddler. My back pain has also made it hard for me to be positive. Lots of tears have been shed. 
Miss Anything: Beer. I've really been craving beer lately. I think because it's warm, we have been out on our deck and cooking on our grill. It all goes hand and hand with a nice cold beer.

Ugh, heartburn is the worst. Hopefully your appetite will pick up soon and you can start enjoying eating things again! :)

Yay for almost being halfway! I'm 21 weeks and have no appetite either! It's so weird!

I had no appetite in the first trimesters of my pregnancies at all. Hopefully the yoga will help with the back pain.
