Another fun week in the books. We had swimming lessons, we went to Mall of America, we got to spend a day in a half with Trav’s brother.  It was great.
This Thursday we went to Mall of America as special outing with Trav’s brother who we only get to see twice a year.  The girls had SOOOO much fun.  They were so excited and just loved going on all the rides.  Jovie was not a fan of any of the rides.  She wanted to go on everyone, but once the ride started she didn’t want to be on it.  Jovie did loved Paw Patrol Land.  Emmy loved every ride besides the log chute, and Kenna loved the log chute!  As a whole I think Paw Patrol land was the biggest hit.  We ended up going in the play area twice.   We also got to each lunch in the food court which the girls thought was the coolest thing.  It was such a fun day!
Swimming lessons went great this week.  Emmy is listening a lot better to her teacher and is getting better at putting her head under water.  Kenna is getting better and is not soooo tired the next day after swimming lessons.  Thank goodness.  Then Jovie, she just keeps trucking along.  She loves the water.  The faster we can teacher her how to swim, the better for Travis and I- so we don’t have to worry about her in the water because she loves just to dunk herself.
Potty training is going well.  We just quit diapers cold turkey besides at nap and bedtime.  She still wakes up wet after each time.  During the day she only wears undies even when traveling.   It makes a little extra work for me, but it seems to be going very well.  She is also getting better at holding it.  YAY.
Pregnancy is going good. I finally felt the baby kick!! Feeling the baby kick is the best feeling.  It is so crazy to imagine there is a little baby moving and grooving in there.  Sleeping is going better and my appetite has picked up.  My facial rash is still going strong.  I also got some maternity leggings in.  It will be really nice to have clothes that fit.

18 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  6 pounds

Maternity clothes: I have been loving my new maternity t-shirts and leggings I got in the mail.  Anytime I can I still put on sweat pants and a sweatshirt.   Right now I am all about comfort.

Stretch Marks: Just a couple left over from my last three pregnancies- I get stretch marks on my butt, inner thighs, and lower back area and some other areas.

Symptoms: Tired. I still have perioral dermatitis on my face.  I also get light headed if I stand up quickly.

Best Moment: To feel the baby move!!!!! ❤ ❤

Miss Anything: Having an adult beverage, having more energy, and not having my face all red and itchy.

Movement: YES!!!! Every night I try to put my hand on my belly to see if I can feel any other movement.

Food cravings:  Salt and Vinegar Chips, Oreo cookies, and just carbs (cereal, bread, cookies) and meat.  Meat/protein always sounds good. I loved these chicken sausages we got at costco, but I already ate the whole pack in one week:( 😦  I would just snack on them all day if I could.

I have a pretty sensitive stomach and have reactions to certain foods. I am usually dairy free, soy free, yeast free, and gluten free.  Sometimes I eat whatever I want, but then just pay for it after.  I get itchy skin, rashes on my skin, and stomach aches.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I was getting car sick the other day.
