18 weeks of baby bump

Friday, November 30, 2012

How Far Along: 18 weeks as of 11/22

Size of the Baby: baby is the size of a pear

Maternity Clothes: Belly band is still sufficing and I am loving my new maternity jeans in denim and red!

Stretch marks: none

Weight gain: Not very much & still the same...But my doctor says Baby and I are perfectly healthy! They're convinced I'll be gaining it all at the end.

Sleep: Trying to convince my husband I need a full body pillow, even though I'm really not at the stage to need it yet.

Best Moment of the Week: Seeing our baby girl on the ultrasound screen in 3D AND 4D! She was in a good position, so our tech let us switch over, it was amazing! She was grinning and sucking her thumb! 

Movement: Lots of movement, she is one active little girl :)

Food Cravings: Not really any cravings yet. 

Gender: Baby Girl ! Watch our gender reveal here.

Belly Button in or out: In

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing this week, thank goodness! I was able to enjoy Thanksgiving and all of its delights!

What I miss:
Missing normal clothes. My belly shows in my work blouses and camisoles are just pointless. Time to go shopping! 

What I am looking forward to: Buying girl clothes! Joel and I bought her a cable knit sweater and a ONE piece swimsuit, because Daddy helped choose :)

Nursery: Ordered the crib on cyber Monday, woohoo! I'm brewing up some ideas for fabrics since my oh so talented Mama is sewing her bedding :)

Emotions: So happy! The news of us having a baby girl just makes me so smiley and bright lately! I also am very much still empathetic.
