Pregnancy update: weeks 15-18

Friday, October 7, 2016

Before I get started with this pregnancy update, can I just say that I have been THE WORST about taking weekly pictures. Before I got pregnant I was all "I'm going to dress cute every week for a picture and not miss a single week". Now Garrett is dragging me out of bed, forcing me to take a picture. I have missed so many weeks. Will probably regret this down the road but it is what it is!


How far along?
18 weeks

Size of baby?
A chicken breast. However, measuring a week ahead so technically bigger I guess?

Not yet! Hopefully any day now!

Have been having pretty awful headaches off and on. Thankfully none at work though. I think my body knows that I have to push through work so the headaches typically hit me at night or on the weekends. And another totally weird symptoms is sneezing. You guys, I sneeze at least 20 times a day. And I've never had allergies, sinus problems, etc. so I'm thinking it's just some weird pregnancy symptom.

Sleeping pretty good for the most part. Some really weird dreams and waking up frequently to use the bathroom or because of a headache but overall I can't complain! I think God is trying to get me used to waking up constantly throughout the night :)

We find out TOMORROW! We are having a gender reveal party with our friends and family and I am bursting at the seams to know!!! Everyone was thinking girl but a lot of people are starting to think boy, and I am thinking boy as well.

Weight gain?
Up 4 lbs and I'm surprised it's not more than that. My appetite has come back with a vengeance haha! I am trying to watch what I eat and I am going to the gym pretty regularly but give me allllll the Cheetos, sweets, carbs, etc.

Still not crazy about chicken, but I never really have been. I hardly ate anything the whole 1st trimester and that has sure changed. I am constantly hungry and loving any and all foods, especially the unhealthy stuff.

Maternity clothes?
Still wearing my regular work clothes. My work pants are getting mighty tight and I usually ride home with them unbuttoned, true story. Thankfully I can wear scrubs to work so I will eventually purchase a few pair of maternity scrubs. I bought a few pair of designer maternity jeans to get me through the fall/winter and they are heavenly! Haven't worn them much yet but I definitely will be in them non-stop once the weather changes.

So excited. He can't wait to start feeling baby move! And obviously so excited to find out the gender. He wants a little girl but will be thrilled with a boy as well. A little baseball player to follow in his footsteps. I melt thinking about it!

I am having the hardest time deciding on a crib. We have it narrowed down to about 4 from Restoration Hardware and I am hoping to pull the trigger by the end of next week. I am justifying spending this much on nursery furniture by telling myself that we will use the same furniture for every baby. That makes it ok, right??

Best part of the week?
We had our anatomy scan on Wednesday and we have a healthy, big baby! I am so beyond thankful. I have been praying for this visit since we found out we were pregnant, as IVF babies have increased risk for heart defects. Everything they could see looked perfect and we are so thrilled. Baby is measuring a week ahead, going to be a big one! I was 9lb 5oz and my husband was 9lb 8oz so we are definitely expecting a chunk!

Looking forward to?
Our party tomorrow! Check back next week or follow me on Instagram (@mrsordavis) to see what we're having!

  15. So sweet! Haven't been over for a visit in a bit...tickled pink it's a girl! I personally think having a girl first is the BEST! I had a major aversion to chicken with #3...couldn't even look at it. You look precious...congrats

  16. I'm so glad you're doing well and getting back to normal! I can't wait to see furniture you pick out! I don't know if there's a RH outlet near you but the one near us had some amazing baby furniture in it and it was a lot cheaper - I know those are always a toss up though since it's an outlet
