Officially 18 weeks

Well I am 18 weeks pregnant today :) I love it now that I am not sick anymore. I will love it more once I feel the baby kick! I might have felt it move a few times already, just not to sure. I bought my first pair of maternity pants last weekend.. What an adventure that was... 12 pairs of jeans, 3 skirts, 2 cargos, 2 pairs of leggings and 65 minutes later.. I got one pair of cargos.. (which pick up everything!!! highly annoying) But they are comfy and thats all that matters! The reason for trying on all the clothes and only getting one pair, because they were all freekin skinny leg.. I am sorry I do not know many women who wear a size 14+ who have skinny legs! Why would they do that?! Why on earth was that their only option available? like NO regular jeans at all. Their reason "its the style". So what I don't want to be in style then, I want comfy jeans where my legs look like legs not stuffed sausages!

I am getting better sleep which is great! I have energy to do stuff which is even better. I did have a week of vacation last week. I loved being able to cook home made meals for supper every night :) In a way I can't wait for mat leave so I can make Jon home made meals almost every night :)

This week I got pre-registered for delivery and got registered for my labor and deliver class. Which will be June 9th. We get a tour of the hosptial and a bunch of other stuff. I also have a class on breast feeding on the 11th. It was suggested I take Jon along since breast feeding is a "team effort". They will be interesting classes to say the least. There was another one I wanted to register for however I work nights and they only hold them at nights. Because apperently the only people who get pregnant in this world are people who work 9-5.. Seriously! It does make it all that much more real for me. My next baby doc appt is Feb 29th. Then my ultra sound on March 7th. We hope to find out what we're having on that day.

My schedule is also going to be changing :s Which I do not like this one as I have no idea what I'll be working, I don't know if I'll get my weekends off which will be very disturbing :( Not even one week day off.

My cravings-- none
Weight gained--2 lbs
Food aversions-- pretty much everything I mostly force myself to eat, Nothing is appetizing oh but I did eat my first salad in months
Inches gained--5 (no wonder my pants no longer fit!)
Goal for the next week--eat more salad! I want to start eating a little better then I have. I'm not eating that much junk but want to cut out what I have been.
Pregnancy symptoms--HORRIBLE night sweats! Scared the life out of me as I was not expecting it and it scared me and worried me until I spoke with Crystal the next am..

I will have to get Jon to take some pics of my teenie tiny baby bump to post. We bought the baby a tshirt this past weekend at the motorcycle show. And we ordered a rock, paper, scissors, lizard, spock bib! I shall post a pic later.. It will have to be one huge pic post, but everyone loves pics right!
