18 Weeks!

18 Weeks!
2 weeks until the half-way mark!

How far along are you? 
18 Weeks

Total weight gain: 
Doesn't seem like I've gained any more than just the belly.  Since the last dr appointment I've really started watching HOW much I eat.  Before, I would eat the entire foot long sub because I knew I'd be hungry again in no time.  Now, I'm spreading out those calories and saving half of the sub for later.  Smart cookie, I am!

How big is baby?:
Apparently Baby is the size of a mango...can't say I've ever eaten a mango to be familiar with one...but here's a pretty picture!  lol
Baby is approximately 6 inches long head to rump and weighs about half a pound

Maternity clothes: 
Definitely...I'm building my wardrobe one piece at a time

Stretch marks?:  
None, yet.  
Still applying Palmers religiously

I got a body pillow!  I sleep SO SO SO much better!

Best moment this week?:
Baby's first big FLOP

Sunday I was sitting on the couch, drinking my coffee.  All of a sudden it felt like a fish flopped over in my belly!  My whole belly shook!  It was WEIRD!  
I'm pretty sure I was kicked or punched again the other day 

Food cravings?:
Popcicles!  At least I'm eating sugar free lol

Food aversions?:
Not too bad, kind of depends on the day

Labor signs?: 
NO!  Stay put Baby!

Belly button in or out?: 
In...not sure if I think it will or won't pop

What I miss: 
not being tired constantly...I know you mothers are laughing at me

What I'm looking forward to: 
APRIL 16!!
We will find out Baby's gender!  HURRY UP!!

What I'm not looking forward to: 
Even less sleep...I've become an insomniac it seems.  
Pre-pregnancy, I could sleep so well. Just get still and I'd be SOUND asleep...noise level didn't really matter, light didn't matter...not so much any more

Baby's flop!


  1. The halfway point is always so exciting!
    Congrats on that first big flop, such fun :)
