18 week update

If you missed my 17 week update, find it here.

How Far Along: 18 weeks 

Gender: Waiting to find out 

Baby Size: Bell pepper

Total Weight Gain: 7 pounds

Maternity Clothes: Just jeans so far 

Sleep: It's been a challenge to not sleep on my stomach, that is when I sleep the hardest. Getting up 1-2 times a night to pee. 

Miss Anything: Eating meat without feeling sick after. 

Cravings: No

Symptoms: I still have an aversion to meat and veggies, but trying to eat them more. Sometimes get nauseas if I eat too fast. But I haven't thrown up in three weeks!

Belly Button/Body Changes: Small bump is growing. Sometimes I feel a little off balance.

Mood: Feeling excited as two of my close friends had their babies this week

Exercise: Since I'm feeling better, I am trying to run a couple times a week with Maebe.

Looking Forward to: Taking a trip to Syracuse to stay at my grandmother's lake house!

my mom's retiring! (finally)

Today is my mom's last day at the hospital she's been working at for 39 years! Northside Hospital in Atlanta was her first job out of college when she was 23. It's crazy to think she has been there that long, and how many people she has taken care of. They say that the average person will work for 12-15 different companies in a lifetime, but she has been at one!

I'm so proud of her, but I'm the most proud of how she used her nursing skills to take care of my dad for 14 years.

Cheers to retirement mom!
