Pregnancy Announcement and 18 Weeks Update

Baby Announcement | MissySue.com

AJ and I are excited to announce a new addition to our family!

Here are a few details about the pregnancy so far.

How far along? 

18 weeks

Baby’s size:

Bell pepper

Baby’s weight:

7 ounces

Baby names:

Undecided – but we call the baby “Himmer” for Him/Her

Weight gain:

10 lbs, about half a pound a week so far

Food cravings: 

Water, random vegetables, salty foods, milk

During the first trimester, I could only stomach bland foods and ate many, many bowls of plain Cheerios and pieces of bread.

Dislikes:

Air fresheners, pastries, hairsprays

Quirks: 

Super smell – I can smell random scents from very far away.

Feeling: 

Super duper mega exhausted all.the.time.

Morning sickness: 

Like clock-work around 10 or 11 AM and again between 2 and 3 PM; chewing a few crackers helps this subside within minutes

Random changes:

Mr. Gooch follows me around everywhere, everywhere. No matter what I am doing he’s right there watching me.

My face looked different for the first 2-3 months. I would look in the mirror and I just seemed different.

I have noticed more breakouts on my shoulders and back.

I currently carry all my weight up front and have gone up a pant size too.

I can’t bear to wear clothing that is too tight or anything with a seam unless it hits really high or low.

Clothing favorites:

Gap Pure Body Crew tees

Gap Cropped Leggings

Pink Blush Maternity {wearing this dress and recently bought this top)

Details from picture above:

Marigold Baby Moccasins

Striped Peplum Top

MAC Lipstick ‘Pretty Please’

18 Weeks Pregnancy Update

I would love to know if there is anything specific you would like to hear about since I plan on posting updates throughout the rest of my pregnancy. Please leave comments below or on instagram where I plan to post more pictures!

    Hi Melissa,

    I’ve been following your blog for a few months now, I definitely love it.
    I am French (I really like your posts about French girls) and it is very interesting to hear/read about your point of view on beauty, make-up, hairstyles. I’ve actually learned a lot ;-)

    Anyway just wanted to say it in French for this wonderful great news: Félicitations !!
