As promised, here's the bump at almost 18 weeks. Not flattering, but I couldn't put this pic off another day (this belly won't stop growing! and I feel like I'm already running out of room!), so I had Stephen take it as soon as I got home from work today.
Odd cravings: All things vinegarish, greek or italian dressings, lemonade (I tried to drink my weight in it yesterday...let's just say my bowels didn't thank me. at all.), tart desserts (lemon pie, sorbet), severely cold beverages.
Odd aversions: Bacon (super gag), coffee (what?!), chicken by itself (I can eat it in a salad or mixed with stuff, but not solo), buttery sauces, ALL things fried, dog breath, strong perfume smells.
New "take it or leave it's": Ice cream, chocolate (another what?!), sweets in general, etc.
Honestly, food still isn't a happy occasion, not drudgery like before, but just not normal. If I could just drink my way through pregnancy I'd be a happy camper. But this little one needs food, so eating is like a major focus of my day. We go for our next sonogram soon, so I'll definitely post details about that...like the gender!
What were your odd cravings or aversions?
