18 Weeks (6/22/12)

How far along? 18 weeks

Size of baby: 5 to 5.8 inches from crown to rump and 5.3 ounces. About the size of a bell pepper.

Weight gain: I'd say around 7lbs

Maternity clothes: Mostly wearing comfy clothes and dresses. When I wear jeans, I wear a bellaband with my regular jeans or maternity jeans Wearing some maternity shirts and a tankini to the pool!

Stretch marks: Nope

Sleep: Just the usual waking up twice a night to go to the bathroom. It's quite the process to switch what side I sleep on cause I have to move the whole body pillow as well. I just to not switch sides too much for that reason.

Symptoms: I had a headache once this week but nothing too bad. 

Best moment this week: Feeling the baby kick and going to Buy Buy Baby to look at car seats, strollers, etc. 

Movement: Yes! Still pretty light so I have to concentrate on feeling them. I like to push on my belly and bug the baby to get it to kick :)

Food cravings: Bagel with whipped cream cheese, fruit and desserts. Meat has been sounding awful!

Gender: FRIDAY!!! So ready to get this week started so it can be Friday already. Wish our appointment was before 3:30 in the afternoon!

What I miss: Sleeping on my back and stomach.
