18 Week Bump Date!

How Far Along: 18 weeks 1 day

Size of Baby: Sweet Potato! (5.6 inches, 6.7 oz)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +9 lbs. I guess the scale was right. Of course, I'm doing better with eating now and getting out more since I'm not on "rest" anymore so hopefully it won't be as quick next month.

Maternity Clothes: All the time except for comfy clothes.

Gender: It's a BOY!!!

Movement: Some wiggling here and there and a pretty good kick the other day. Hoping it's more frequent soon.

Sleep:Good except that I'm pretty tired most days.
What I Miss: Sleeping in.

Cravings: This week I had one craving for crab and one for cotton candy.

Symptoms: Sore hips and swollen gums.

Best Moment This Week: Hearing his strong heartbeat and being told everything looks good.
