Tummy Tuesday - 18 Weeks

12:41 PM


How far along?  18 weeks! I will be 19 weeks tomorrow. The baby is the size of a bell pepper. 

Total weight gain/measurements: 4 lbs, but my stomach size varies DAILY! One day it's HUGE (for me) and other's it seems like it's barely there. 

Maternity clothes: Yes! All I use are maternity bottoms now, they are just more comfortable. I have been wearing a lot of dresses too, it's hot and my regular dresses still fit me. :) 

Stretch marks: None. I have been using Palmer's Stretch Mark cream to help with the itchy stomach and it's really been helping. 

Sleep: I sleep about 7 hours a night. I think I've hit an energy peek because I haven't been as tired lately and I notice I need a lot less sleep. 

Best moment this week: Buying the crib and setting my 20 week ultrasound appointment. 

Miss anything? Cute clothes..lol  Maternity clothes just aren't that cute..to me anyway. 

Movement: Lots!! Especially before bed and yesterday when we were around grandmas and grandpa she was moving like crazy. 

Food cravings: Fruit!! As long as it's fruit then I will eat it.   

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nada. 

Gender:  It's a GIRL!!!!!! We refer to her by her middle name - Shea. :)

Symptoms: Bloating, stuffy nose, and swollen feet. - Same for the past two weeks.

Belly button in or out? In. 

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy as long as I eat/sleep properly. 

Looking forward to: July 15th, which is the date of the next ultrasound.
