18 Weeks

3.10.2011

Pregnancy Highlights:
 
How Far Along: 18 Weeks
 
Size of baby: Baby B is 6 ounces- about the size of a mango.  
 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 4 lbs.
 
Maternity Clothes: This is a sore subject. I hate getting dressed every day. I know it's only going to get worse. I just want it to warm up so I can wear dresses and leggings every day! (I think I might have mentioned something about dresses and leggings in my last pregnancy post!) haha!
 
Gender: We will find out in 12 days! :) EEEeeeeekkkk!!! I had a dr appointment today and the heatbeat was significantly lower than it has been. It has been 155-160+ but today it was between 135-140. We are on edge wondering what it is, still hoping for a sweet baby girl. :)
 
Movement: I started feeling it a few days after my 15 week post. I feel flutters and occasionally a good kick. Each day it seems to be getting stronger. I can't wait for Hank to feel it! 
 
Sleep: Still sleeping pretty good. 7 hours doesn't seem like it's enough though. I could sleep forever!  
 
What I miss: Fitting into all my clothes and looking "cute". Don't get me wrong, being pregnant is a blessing and I know that it's beautiful but I honestly don't feel attractive. I know this is normal to feel this way. I'm over it.  
 
Cravings: Salads. Ice Cream. Yogurt. Cheese. I'm sensing a main theme here....DAIRY. 
 
Symptoms: Absolutely nothing. This is that part of pregnancy where you don't really 'feel' pregnant. 
 
Best Moment this week: Waking up at 1 AM to tinkle and laying in bed wishing I could feel the baby and in that instant of wishing, the baby kicked me three times pretty strong! :)
