How far along? 18 Weeks
How big is baby? The size of a sweet potato
Total weight gain/loss: up about 5ish lbs
Maternity clothes? More and more. I can wear normal pants, but I get uncomfortable in the very quickly. My clothing of choice at this point seems to be dresses. I can wear many of my "normal" ones still and they all me to be cool, because adjusting to the humidity has been hard.
Sleep: All of the moving has left me drained so I sleep like a rock a night.
Best moment this week: Purchasing a new mattress. I know this is probably meant to be pregnancy related, but this mattress is heavenly. Since GB and I got married, we have been slowly replacing our hand-me-down furniture with our own, and this purchase is one of the best of our marriage. It sure makes it hard to get out of the bed in the morning.
Movement: Not yet! At my last ultrasound the doctor said she thought I would have an anterior placenta again, which can muffle the feeling of movement when baby is so little so I am not too worried about it yet.
Food cravings: Ice cream. Does it get anymore cliche than that?
Food Aversions: Most meat still.
Gender: Hopefully we find out soon!
Labor Signs: No, thank goodness!
Pregnancy Symptoms: Holy heartburn!
What I am looking forward to: Organizing baby stuff and maybe purchasing a few things after we find out the sex.
