18 weeks


How Far Along? 18 weeks

Total Weight Gained/Loss? enough. I hate this question.

Maternity Clothes: yep. Jeans and shirts. This belly wants all. the. elastic.

Sleep? Better. I'm still really tired mid afternoon. I'm a pro at the car nap.

Best Moment of the Week? Movement is picking up a bit.

Movement- a little. It's no where near what I felt with E which makes me paranoid but I'm trying to let it go.... (that song in your head now?)

Food Craving- cold, cold, cold. Ice water by the gallon. Cheese quesadillas from Taco Bell (I know. No judgement)

Food aversions- shrimp, chicken wings. Still not a fan of most foods but the appetite seems to be coming back.

Morning sickness?- nope. And the headaches seem to be leveling off.

Gender- We know.. Kind of. We did the early ultrasound thing at 16 weeks and she gave us a guess. But she wasn't very sure. So we haven't said anything. We find out for sure today and I cannot wait. Maybe then it will start to feel real!!!

Labor Signs- I swear Braxton Hicks have started already. I got them early on and often with E and it looks to be the same this time.

Belly Button- shallowing out already :(

What I miss- my ankles have started swelling already. Not ok. So I miss normal ankles.

What I'm looking forward to- today!!

Big Sister Status- Still 100% Team Pink. She no longer says she will run away if it's a boy and has said she'll "love him a bit" but she's going to be so disappointed if it's a boy...
