Gluten Free Bumpdate! Week 18

How far along? 18 weeks (19 weeks now - I write these to document how the week was for those who have asked :) )
Total weight gain: Down 2-4 pounds from my last weigh in :(
Maternity clothes? Pants, yes. Tops are still baggy around the belly, though my pre-pregnancy ones are a bit too tight now.
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Sad to say terrible this week. My husband was away and I never sleep well when he's gone, and this week was no exception. Couldn't sleep or stay asleep, very frustrating!
Best moment this week: I overall had an awesome week at work, hanging out with my husband and for brunch and walking the High Line and on a beautiful day, and finding out one of my besties is expecting as well!
Miss anything? My appetite (but we'll get to that)
Movement: Again, I think so but not sure yet. Mostly in the evening when I'm going to bed.
Food cravings: No, in fact the exact opposite.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Oh yes. So I mentioned previously the thought of of eating anything not prepared at home now repulses me. Pre-prepared food has been added to that list, and basically anything that is not: 1. Fruit, 2. Vegetables, 3. a GF protein bar, 4. cereal, 5. plain GF bread. Even what I can eat I can only eat in small quantities. Hence my weight loss. It has been incredibly frustrating and stressful.
Gender: Will let you know in a few weeks :)
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Food aversions (above), acne is still a thing (though I got some products which seemed to have helped already - I will write about them in a couple of weeks to let you know how they have worked out), exhaustion, a bit of sciatica.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I don't know if I'm just hormonal, or if it's because I'm stressed out because of the not eating/weight loss or not sleeping, but was very moody most days this week. Luckily my mood returned to mostly happy towards the end of the week. 
Looking forward to: Going home in a few weeks and seeing my family and my new niece in a few weeks! And having a full week where neither me or my husband is travelling!
