18 Weeks

How far along? 18 weeks

Weight gain/loss: +9 pounds total. Ugh.

Maternity clothes? Pants all the time. Tops sometimes. I don't have to many Fall tops so I'm trying to work with what I've got.

Stretch marks? Nadda!

Sleep? Eh. It is what it is!

Best moment this week? It's finally September and the temps have fallen into the comfortable level.

Food cravings: Nothing specific.

Gender: My guess is still a boy. We'll find out in 17 days! :o)

Belly button in or out? In

Movement? I think I can feel the little peanut occasionally but nothing constant enough to give you a definite yes.

What I miss? Feeling decent. My allergies have been crazy for the past few days so I'm ready to feel normal again.

What I'm looking forward to: Being able to buy some things for this little one: crib, bedding, clothes. I want so bad to start getting the nursery in order but unfortunately we have to get the basement at least started before I can do that. UGH! Who wants to come help us with the basement!? Any takers? I'll make you food! :o) Anyone? Please!?

Milestones: At five and a half inches long and five ounces in weight, he now may be large enough for you to feel him twisting, rolling, kicking, and punching his way around the womb. 

My uterus, now about the size of a cantaloupe, is causing my body's center of gravity to shift, pulling the lower back forward and pushing the abdomen out.



I'd love to hear from you!! :o)
