Pregnant Pause – Week 18

Hello week 18, I hope you are kinder to my back than week 17 was. I’m not holding my breath. I hear you guys get more vicious as the time goes. So I will just continue to see my Lucy and supplement with tennis ball rolls on the back. (It helps, for real.)

My baby is a sweet potato this week. (What To Expect says a mango… but I don’t think it’s a mango yet so I’m sticking with The Bump. Mostly because if the baby were a mango this week, it would be a cantaloupe next week and I don’t think that’s true. So sweet potato it is!)

I’m having some serious indigestion. Currently, not just in general. I’m considering finding a straw and jamming it into my ribs to let some of that gas out. I’m also quite gaggy (not a word, I know) this morning. I haven’t had a high gag reflex in quite some time.

I know some of you requested that I post a picture of me in normal clothes, not my purple and black weekly shots. So I will comply. Here is a picture from last weekend’s trip to south Texas for Sophie’s first birthday party. I’m the one all the way on the right. The girl next to me is 23 weeks pregnant with twins. I know she doesn’t look bigger than me in the picture but she got the good angle.

You can see that we were drinking water while all the short hot girls are drinking champagne.

(By the way, those short hot girls are family. They married in… that’s why they aren’t amazon women like me. They have things in their closet that say “0” or “short” on the label. That’s foreign to me. The one all the way to the left is my sister-in-law, Laura. She had Avery in December and look how good she looks already. Don’t hold your breath, friends. I don’t anticipate it being that easy!)

And because I cannot break tradition, here is my weekly shot.

That’s all folks! Just 3 short weeks until we find out the sex of the little Hurstling. Sometime before then we are going to have a Guess the Name and Sex game. I’d love to hear your name ideas. So start brainstorming!

Happy Monday, I hope your weekend was fun and productive!

(ToT questions are posted. If they aren’t posted on Monday mornings, feel free to remind me. Apparently pregnancy screws with your brain!)
