18 Weeks

Photobucket
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!)

Oh, I'm so excited to here the baby is letting you know he/she is in there finding a comfortable spot. It's just too exciting.
Can't wait to see the crib.

Yay! I'm sure that's exactly what you felt! Your little on is in there flipping, twisting and jumping around. The movements will get more pronounced and more definitive as the days go by. It's really the most amazing feeling ever. My little one is kicking me in the ribs as I type this! He's been really active these last couple days!
