18 Week Update!

How far along? 18 weeks.
How big is baby?  7 ounces/5.5 inches plus legs!  The size of a bell pepper.

Weight gain? +7.5 pounds total! (Either my scale was off last week (or this week) or I gained a lot in a week!)

Symptoms? Still a Ssore back, frequent bathroom trips!

Sleep? So far so good.  I do get up to use the bathroom at least once a night though.  

Food cravings? Poptarts, dry, salty things, like potato chips, SoBe Lifewater 0 Calorie Yumberry Pomegranate.

Movement? Not yet, but looking forward to it! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and some maternity tops and some regular tops.

What I am looking forward to? Finding out the gender on Wednesday!

What am I missing?  Sleeping on my stomach!  Maybe a random glass of wine!  Other than that everything is great.

Milestones? He/She is flexing his/her legs/arms.  

Other?  I think I look bigger when I look down at my stomach than the picture shows from the side.  Also, my stomach is bigger on one side of my belly button than the other!  Ha ha!  Kurt keeps telling the baby to straighten up!


  1. Cute! I have days when I feel huge and look at myself and think I look huge but sometimes people tell me they can barely tell I'm pregnant at 24 weeks! It just depends on the clothes I think. When I wear maternity tops the bump isn't as noticeable.

  2. Aw, look at your tiny bump! You're so little. Heck yes to poptarts, I crave those anyway! Haha


Comments make me smile!

Have a wonderful day!
