How Far Along: 18 weeks
Sleep: I’m getting decent sleep, or was when we were back at home. In Palm Springs this week not so much! Sharing a house with family has its perks, but “quiet” is not one of them.
Movement: As is obvious when comparing the pic above with the one from four weeks ago, my belly has really popped out this week! As a result I’m able to feel way more little kicks and bumps and I’m absolutely loving it. For a worrisome mama like me those movements are constant reassurance that Bugaloo 2 is doing okay in there!
Enjoying: A break from the incessant rain, cold, and perpetual sicknesses that this winter has wrought in all our lives! As a hater of cold weather and a true Summer bum, Nov-Feb are my least favourite months by a long shot and I’m deeply happy to be rid of them for another year. The weather in the desert is wonderful and since we fly back home on Daylight Savings Day we hope there’ll be a little more light after this trip!
Craving: A workout! This is the first warm weather vacation I’ve been on in five years and I’m loving it, but I miss moving my body and have been eating too much junk food. Maybe some Desert Bootcamp is in order!
Nesting: I’ve been trying to find little projects at home to improve our space – adding plants to the mix, putting up little shelves here and there. It’s lovely! Still not sure we have room for another baby but we’ll figure something out when the time comes!
How I’m Feeling: Like a million bucks! The second trimester is always good to me. My belly grows a lot but I have good energy and no nausea so I certainly can’t complain!
