18 Weeks

18 week belly shot
Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 18 weeks

Size of baby: Chicklet is about 5 1/2 inches from crown to rump, or roughly the length of a bell pepper.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 10 lbs or so. Waist gain: 7 1/2 inches.

Maternity Clothes: A little bit of both.

Gender: A girl...I think? I don't know why I have this fear that the 3D ultrasound was wrong. I have a doctor appointment in the morning and they're doing the anatomy ultrasound, so we'll find out for sure tomorrow!

Movement: Feeling stronger kicks lately!

Sleep: Still can't seem to get enough it seems.

What I miss: I miss eating sandwiches sometimes.

Cravings: Lately I've been craving sour stuff. Do you remember Crybabies gum? I found it at CVS and I think I might be addicted. Same with Sour Punch Straws...it's like I'm 12 years old again and at the skating rink.

Symptoms: I'm so, so, SO happy that I'm vomiting less and less these days. I am feeling really drained physically, though, and am sleepy all the time it seems. I never had this issue with my first pregnancy so it's been hard to adapt to. I'm sure a lot of it is because I'm chasing around a little stinker all day long!

Best Moment this week: Buying an ADORABLE monogrammed romper. Girly things are so much fun! I'll have to post a picture of the outfit to give you a hint what her name will be :)

You look like you've popped from last picture to this one! You look great! I craved sour stuff in both of my pregnancies as well...the sour straws were my absolute favorite! Can't wait to hear results of tomorrows appointment...I'm sure she is still a she :)
