Pregnancy Blog :: Week 18

This week I've really noticed my bump grow significantly. I'm not going to put a picture up yet as I'm saving that for a day when I'm properly into my 'blooming' stage! Now I'm finding that I can no longer wear most of my T-Shirts without a rather inelegant bulge so I'm going to be browsing all of the maternity fashion sites - I heard this week that Glow maternity & baby (which is where I bought most of maternity clothes from the first time around) have launched their own GLOW maternity label.

Another pregnancy side effect this week is a total aversion to the contents of the potty. Lara is doing so well with the toilet but every time I have to deal with the contents of a potty rather than a trip to the toilet, I find myself wretching and so we've had to invest in a carpet cleaner not only to deal with Lara's accidents on the carpet, but my vomit too!

I've also noticed the 'baby brain' start to kick in. Several times this week both at home and at work I have started doing something only to realise I have no idea what I was starting to do. My short-term memory is shot and I think its time to start bringing out the lists again (mind you, I never really stopped making lists after the first pregnancy). At work this is really hard to deal with because now I am in a position of authority, it looks a bit amateurish if I have to ask someone to remind me what I was doing. I've decided that the best course of action is to do something else and not to worry about it - usually 10 minutes later my brain suddenly kicks in and I remember what it was.
