I love the idea of freezing fruit in ice cube trays - I definitely need to drink more water too. I've been mixing 100% fruit juice with club soda as a nice alternative to water, but there are days when I realize that it's almost noon and I haven't had a drink since my morning tea! I've been eating (constantly) but not drinking. I am going to go freeze some fruit in ice cube trays now before I forget (and I will probably grab a snack while I'm in there).

 

Maternity clothes: I've been in them for about a month now (I'm 18 weeks today). Pants and skirts mostly, but I still fit in my longer non-maternity tops. I tried on a regular tank top this morning and it looked hideous. It's the kind with the built-in shelf bra. My boobs looks super saggy and my belly stuck out the bottom. I felt like I should be on a reality show with a beer and a smoke. Even my DD was looking at me and shaking her head, and she's only 22 months.

 

I work from home but go to the office about once a week. I hadn't been in the office in awhile so showed up on Wed and it's pretty obvious now that I'm pregnant so most people found out then. It will be announced at our next team meeting on June 10th. I hate the work announcement for some reason - it just feels so awkward.

 

Ultrasound: I have my anatomy scan booked for June 7th, so ONE WEEK!!! I'm excited but DH can't come with me so I might end up on my own.

 

Smoothies sound amazing. But so does cheese and bread.

Well I am behind, but fun to read and see how everyone is doing. We are into the second trimester and full speed ahead. I am really looking forward to sitting in the sand with my feet in the water this summer smile.gif

AFM- I will be 17 weeks on Monday. I have an appointment on wednesday, looking forward to hearing the heartbeat again!!!!
My return to work has been pretty smooth. I love my new class, and we only have 4 weeks left of school. The downside with going back to work this late in the year is all the summer pay that is held back. Blah. Budgeting is not fun!
My ultrasound is June 24, and thinking we are going to find out the sex. I am kind of excited because we didn't find out with DD.
I'm starting to show, have an undeniable baby bump. But still pretending an keeping the secret to myself, close family and besties. My sister in law had an awful reaction to this pregnancy, so it made me more inward about it. I'm savoring it for now.
Hope everyone has an excellent weekend!!!

Allison-I'd feel awkward too with the work thing.  I can't wait for our 20wk scan.  MMM, cheese.  I'm trying to eat very little of it since I don't think it's helping me keep things running smooth in the gut.

 

Maggie-we found out this time.  It was more exciting than I thought it would be.  Sorry about your sil, so you know why she acted that way?  We can relate some-some of our immediate family members have ignored us since telling them.  It was expected, but still hurts.

 

Afm-having my first Georgia peach of the year-it's so yummy.  Hoping it helps with constipation.  I don't know why I'm still having trouble-not getting enough fiber I suppose.  I hope it ends soon, I feel so bloated after I eat regular meals.  Anyone else having trouble or just eating every few hours instead and finding it helpful?  Rlp getting sharp and a little more often.  Baby's growing :)  Woke up last night on my back and freaked out, have no idea how long I was sleeping like that.  Need to put a pillow against my back.  Can't stomach sleep for at least a week now-super uncomfortable.

Georgia Peaches! Yummy!!    My grandpa usually brings some up to me but I don't know if he will this year.

I so need to get to the grocery store! Totally out of fresh fruit and craving berries like mad. Peaches sound awesome too. The chiropractor has been infinitely helpful but my back and neck are still pretty out of whack. Been arguing with insurance co. re: cost of my vehicle, ugh. Good news, bought a minivan yesterday. I'm really excited with it! There's so much space. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I hit 15 weeks a week ago, and my digestive system STOPPED. It's been a week, and I've had about 1.5 bowel movements this whole time. At first I though the pain I was feeling was the baby wedging babyself into my side and stuff, but apparently not. The ache is constant and makes me want to cry. I'm getting depressed and angry about the whole thing. Here is how the tape plays in my head: "I'm not really feeling my baby but a turd. I'm not really looking pregnant. I'm looking bloated. The pain isn't lovely baby shifting pains, but a digestive problem. I suck." I've tried prunes, prune juice, apple juice, gallons of water, and even milk of magnesia. And NOTHING. I can feel hope of ever feeling less pain slipping away.

Sorry. I'm just having a bad week.

Ultra-yep still feeling that way.  I think the peaches are helping a tiny bit.  I ditched the bananas in my smoothie-figured they were binding.  It's horrible, I'm not even very hungry.  I look at my tiny baby bump-finally showing some and right above my uterus I'm looking at my stomach, going, that's not baby, that's bloat-aarrggghhh.
