Pregnancy Update Week 18

This week marks 18 weeks of being pregnant.  I am finally into the 2nd trimester and feel 100% different than I did during the horrid first trimester!  This time around has been very different than my other pregnancies.  It is harder emotionally and physically than the other three.  I asked the doctor and midwife about this and they attribute it entirely to age.  I'll be 39 in August so I'll accept that!

Another big difference is the cravings.  With my three boys I craved cheeseburgers - like ALL THE TIME.  This time I don't even want to look at a cheeseburger.  I have a new craving.  Potatoes!  Mashed, or baked preferably.   Maybe this time we are having a girl?

In two weeks we have our gender ultrasound so we will find out soon what we are having.  I'm looking forward to this simply so I can shop!  I really feel content - and I'll be happy with another boy or a girl.

So that is the update for those that have been following. 


  1. So glad you're feeling better - I was thankful when I made it to the second trimester as well! Can't wait to hear if you're having a boy or girl!!

  2. Hmmm...I craved cheeseburgers with both of my boys. You may have something there. ;)
