18 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 18 Weeks
 (You can check out my 18 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)


Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 18 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a bell pepper. Your baby now weighs almost 7 ounces and is roughly 5 1/2 inches long from head to bottom.


Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my 16 17 week appt. I had gained 10 lbs total. A little more than I'd have liked to.


Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity pants and mostly maternity shirts.


Gender: A sweet baby GIRL. :-) We have our actual anatomy scan tomorrow at 3:30, so I'll have more pictures to share with you soon. I can't wait to see our sweet girl again. :-)


Movement: Yes, feeling movement every now and again. Still very light and very few and far between.


Food Cravings: No real cravings yet.


What I miss: Nothing really.


Sleep: Having to get up a couple times a night to use the restroom, otherwise sleeping okay.


Symptoms: No real symptoms right now other than a growing belly. :-)


Best Moment this week: Spending Thanksgiving and the long weekend with family.


What I am looking forward to: Seeing our sweet girl on the ultrasound tomorrow and all the Christmas festivities over the next few weeks. :-)

You look fantastic! I had a short sleeved version of that short for my pregnancy with Alex and it was a favorite of mine~

10 pounds is nothing - you look fabulous! (If it's any consolation, right around this time in my pregnancy with M, I gained 5 pounds in ONE week. My dr was not impressed.:) )
