Week 18: Sweet Potato

"Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon. "

How far along? 18wks & 6 days!

Maternity clothes? My mom bought me a few cute maternity shirts this weekend. Yay for non-frumpy clothes!

Stretch marks? No stretch marks and I'm applying anti-stretch mark cream.

Sleep? I'm only comfortable sleeping on my left side, which isn't very comfortable to do the entire night. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with the most horrible cramp in my leg...ouch!

Best moment this week? Finding out that our baby is a healthy baby boy!!

Movement? Stronger flutters this week!

Food cravings? I craved eggs and peaches for the majority of my 1st trimester and now I'm addicted to mangoes and kumquats!

Gender? It's a Boy!!

Labor signs? Nope.

What I miss? My back not hurting.

What I'm looking forward to? Decorating the nursery.

Weekly Wisdom: A lot of nursery furniture takes 10+ weeks to come in so make sure you ask the store ahead of time and you know when to order.

Milestones: Finding out our baby's sex!!

Emotions: SOOOO HAPPY!!

18 weeks & 6 days pregnant
