18 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #3

This week baby is around 14cm long and the size of a sweet potato. This week the baby can yawn. The nervous system is rapidly maturing. They can also hear sounds from inside my body like my hiccups.

In terms of symptoms this week was a quiet one. I've felt ok. I'm still on one set of tablets and most days take 3 a day, I've had one day where I took two which was nice. Hopefully the end of my hyperemesis is in sight. I'm still really hungry and get frequent heartburn. One thing I have noticed this week is how huge I feel. I'm trying to wear maternity clothes all the time now but some are still too big. I'm currently switching between a size 10 jean and my maternity jeans. Both fall down but my pre pregnancy jeans just look crap now as they don't fasten even a little anymore. I feel pregnant, so very pregnant. I also get quite frequent backache, especially if I'm sat down too long, if I'm hovering up or in the morning when I first wake up.

Waist - 28.5
Belly Button - 32.5 so over an inch growth on last week, no wonder I feel huge.

  1. We are in sync! I am 18 weeks pregnant too and really struggling with the maternity clothing. I find that most are far too big so I am currently having to resort to Bump Bands and hair bobbles to keep my trousers up!

    1. Awww, congratulations. Yes, its such a weird time of not really fitting into anything x
