18 Weeks

April 5, 2012

How far along? 18 weeks. Baby is the size of a sweet potato and is 5 and 1/2 inches head to rump. 
Maternity clothes? Not yet. still squeezing into my pants with the help of the belly band.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep: It's getting harder to find a comfortable position when I sleep. I'm just not a fan of sleeping on my side!

Best moment this week:  Feeling the baby move (at least I think I did!)
Miss Anything? Nope.
Movement: I think so! If I lay down and am really still every now and then I can feel little pops and flutters going on in there...I'm not 100% sure it's the baby, but I think it might be!
Food cravings: Spaghetti, ice cream, and cucumbers.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Right now just raw carrots and broccoli.
Gender: April 16th can't come soon enough.
Labor Signs: Way too early.
Symptoms: Sort of sore everywhere, especially my back.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Excited
Looking forward to:  Finding out the gender and setting up our crib (it arrived yesterday!)
