18 weeks

How far along: 18w1d
Total weight gain/loss: +6 pounds
How big is Baby: Baby is about the size of a sweet potato, or 5.6 inches long!

Maternity Clothes: I love them! My newest purchase: a long black Liz Lange dress. It really shows off the bump.
Sleep: Sleep is okay. I wake up to pee and two or three times to turn over.
Movement: Still waiting {anxiously} for some definite movement!
Food cravings: Italian food, which I had lots of at my family's restaurant. Philly cheesesteaks. Any kind of Mexican food. Ice cream.
Food aversions: Nothing sounds good in the mornings because I am always nauseous hungry when I wake up. Once 10am rolls around, everything sounds good again. I guess this is true "morning sickness."
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: Round Ligament Pain. Morning sickness. Vivid dreams. Feeling dizzy & off balance. Peeing all.the.time.
Best moment this week: This past week was a tough one with my Grandpa passing and the funeral. It was great to see my family though. I haven't seen some of them for a very long time.
What I am looking forward to: Friday's ultrasound {anatomy scan}!!! I am so, so excited to see him again and hopefully get a great report on him & my second trimester b/w. Feeling him move! Agreeing on a name :)


  1. You look fantastic. :) Can't believe you're already 18 weeks!

  2. YAY! You totally popped this week and look adorable! :) Can't wait to hear about your anatomy scan- they always get such fun pictures! :) I'm so sorry about your loss though- I know how hard that can be- it's especially hard when you are pregnant and want them to meet the little one. :( Don't worry on the movement- that is totally when I felt it big time! 18-19 weeks- it's going to come so fast! :) And then it won't stop! :) Congrats on 18 weeks!

  3. Have Mercy!!! You look amazing girl :) Loving that bump (and shirt!) How's the nursery coming along?
