My camera is out of batteries so I am cheating and using last weeks pic. I was 18 weeks in it anyway so it works.
How far along: 18 weeks (3/25/14)
Size of baby: 5 1/2 inches and almost 7 ounces. About the size of a bell pepper. He actually weighed in at 8oz so I guess he's on the bigger side
Feeling: I had a really good week. No headaches and had a decent amount of energy. I think I was just anxious for the end of the week to see what the baby's gender was.
Weight gain: I have been way off. I was guessing 5-8lb weight gain and I weighed in at almost 3 lbs more then I started at. Doctor wants me to have gained 2+ lbs by my next appointment. She said the same thing when I was pregnant with Collins so I guess I'm just slow at gaining weight in the beginning. It will be coming, no doubt about that.
Gender: BOY!! I was somewhat shocked but not entirely. He was showing off his goods like crazy so we are 100% sure it's a boy. No name yet but we have a decent list going.
Cravings: Same old same old. Fruit and sub sandwiches get me every time. I got our first watermelon of the season today and it was delicious!
Best moment this week: Finding out the gender and shopping for the little guy. Boys aren't quite as fun as girls but I had no problem finding him some cute things. So different to buy for a summer baby after having a winter baby.
Movement: Oh yes. Much more noticeable now and he showed us all his moves at the sonogram. He liked having his hand up by his face and at one point, had a foot up by his head as well. He looked completely healthy and we couldn't be more thankful.
Sleep: Not the greatest. Just can't get comfortable and have had to use the restroom usually twice a night.
Maternity clothes: Here and there. I was able to wear non maternity jeans this week but wear maternity ones as well. Same with shirts. I have officially busted the maternity Tupperware back out.
Milestones: Blood vessels are visible through thin skin and his ears are in their final position.
