18 Weeks Update

My sweet friend Anna took some photos of me!














How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +5 lbs
Maternity clothes? still rockin' leggins and jeggings.  They're getting tighter though.  I'm just trying to make it to the warm weather so I can wear dresses.  Also starting to feel like I have thunder thighs.  I think I'm just not used to the weight gain, but I know it's healthy and normal.
Stretch marks? No, I bought some oil for it.
Sleep: Sleep is great, I just can't seem to get ENOUGH.  Needing more than 8 hours.
Best moment this week: Took some early maternity photos with my lovely photographer friend, Anna!  Finally something not taken at the gym haha.
Miss Anything? bladder control haha.  I'm only just 4 months along, but sneezing is a problem.
Movement: I'm feeling it.  It's very subtle.  Sometimes it still feels like I'm imagining it.
Food cravings: larger servings in general.  "Real" food.... not just snacks or desserts.
Anything making you queasy or sick: no, but I had a tummy ache this morning.  Very uncomfortable : (
Have you started to show yet: Yes, from the side.  From the front, I can pass for bloated.
Gender prediction: Cannot wait.  Girl?  I really thought boy in the beginning.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, thankful, excited, and easily exhausted.
Looking forward to: doing "centering" with other pregnant couples!

How far along? 17 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +5 lbs
Maternity clothes? nope, just jeggings and leggings! All day son!
Stretch marks? No, let's keep it that way!
Sleep: Sleep is pretty good other than the time change. I was super worried about sleeping on my back. Some baby advice apps tell you that if you lay flat on your back, you might cut blood flow off from one of your big arteries...but my midwife told me to sleep on my back and not worry.  Hallelujah!
Best moment this week: I heard the heartbeat for the first time and met my midwives!
Have you told family and friends: definitely
Miss Anything? deli meat
Movement: I think so!  Very faint.
Food cravings: sandwiches from the deli and dark chocolate is back on the menu!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope! I'm very fortunate.
Have you started to show yet: yea! But only if I wear fitted clothes.
Gender prediction: i don't know! So excited to find out.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: finding out the gender and feeling real noticeable kicks!
