18 Weeks

  • How far along?: eighteen weeks
  • What's baby up to?: Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccupping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon.
  • Weight Gain: I have gained two pounds total; as of last appointment
  • Symptoms: crazy dreams; headaches
  • How big is baby?: about the size of an sweet potato (about 5.6 inches)
  • Sex: we find out on Wednesday (hopefully)
  • Maternity clothes?: a few pieces
  • Stretch marks?: nope
  • Sleep?: pretty good; gotta go potty at least twice a night now-a-days
  • Best moment this week?: Celebrating the 4th of July with family
  • Movement?: I think, just maybe, there has been some movement
  • Food cravings?: none
  • Labor signs?: n/a
  • Belly button in or out?: flattened and sensitive
  • What I miss: not having to wake up in the middle of the night
  • What I'm looking forward to: finding out if it's a boy or girl (Wednesday)
  • Milestone: feeling movement
