18+ Weeks

How far along? 18w 4d 
Total weight gain: 21 lbs
Maternity clothes? Some of the time. I only have one pair of regular jeans (no stretchy waist) left that I can wear but my maternity jeans are super comfy.  
Stretch marks? None yet. 
Sleep: :(
Best moment this week: Learning to decipher between tummy growls/digestion and baby flutters.
Miss Anything? Sleep, wine, working out and of course, volleyball.
Movement: Some!
Food cravings: chocolate, smoothies, fresh fruit juice, coffee, milk and HAMBURGERS (this prompted me to search all over London for a hamburger on Saturday...not McDonalds though).
Anything making you queasy or sick: still salad and chicken.
Gender Prediction: As it gets closer to the day we find out I get more and more unsure. So, 60% boy, 40% girl. Only 9 more days to go!
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: Same as last week: heartburn, exhaustion, activity, and hip pain. It appears that walking all day Saturday has sprained both of my ankles as well.
Belly Button in or out? Innie.
Wedding rings on or off? On
in the morning, but they get tight mid-day.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy this week!
Looking forward to: Warmer weather, visits home, finding out Wee's gender and next week marking the 1/2 way point!


  1. G&G are looking forward to your coming home! Exciting that you are feeling flutters! Sad you are having such a tough time physically.
    Can't wait for a week from today and the ultrasound results!

  2. Hi Honey: I sent a comment last week but I don't see it. Hmmm. happy to know you are feeling 'Wee'. When pregnant with you, I felt you move between 17-18 a butterfly brushing the inside of my tummy. It was wonderful:) Also, in spite of not being able to eat meat or chicken, I could chow down on burgers all the time. Yum!

    Hope you are sleeping better on your new mattress; every little comfort goes a long way as baby grows. So excited to hear whether you are having 'She Wee' or 'He Wee'.

    Love Mom

  3. We can't wait for you guys to visit!!!!

  4. Ma-I didn't see a comment from last week. Too bad. You can re-post it if you like :)
