18 weeks!

How far along? 18 weeks

Maternity clothes? I had a successful goodwill trip and got 2 pair of maternity shorts and 2 pair of dress pants for $15!! Woohoo. I’ve basically only worn maternity pants or skirts the last week.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep: Been pretty good lately.

Best moment these last 2 weeks: People at work noticing my growing belly! I even had someone tell me I have my “pregnancy glow”.

Miss Anything? I miss not getting so tired out just walking, and it’s only gonna get worse! I also miss certain foods…I’m not supposed to have lunch meat but I’ve had a it a few times. But I really want a Jimmy Johns sub!

Movement: I think so! Just tiny little weird “flutters”. I can’t wait for more pronounced movement.

Food Cravings: I’ve been drinking a lot of milk and I’m also loving chili-cheese anything. Hot dogs, fries, or fritos are all good with chili-cheese!

Anything making you queasy or sick: I still get a little queasy if I get too hungry.

Gender: 2 MORE WEEKS!!!! YESS!!!!! It’s getting so close! I’m thinking boy at this point…just because everyone wants me to have a girl. I will be shocked if they say “girl”.

Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: My hands and feet get swollen when walking and my belly skin is itchy from stretching.

Belly Button in or out? Getting more shallow!

Wedding rings on or off? On, but I need to take it off before going on a walk because my fingers swell.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!! We went and played around at Burlington Baby Depot and picked out a lot of cute baby stuff for our registry!

Looking forward to: Finding out the sex of the baby!!! I’m counting down the days. I’m sure these two weeks will fly by!
