18 Week Update

Photobucket Photobucket
Shirt: Old Navy Maternity / Jeggings: Aeropostale / Necklace: F21

How far along: 18 weeks
Development:  5 inches long / size of turnip
Doctors Appointment:  I have one on the 26th and my 20 week ultrasound
Movement: I've been feeling flutters for a few weeks but I'm now feeling noticeable kicks. Ben is dying to feel her kick.
Weight Gain:  5 pounds
Maternity Clothes:  I can't usually wear maternity pants until 7 months, I might get there sooner this time but I have been wearing maternity shirts.
Stretch Marks:  No new ones. All from my 1st pregnancy
Best moment of my week:  I did most of my christmas shopping online this year, so all the packages are starting to come in. Can't wait to start wrapping.
Worst moment:  My nausea is gone, but I'm going through the head ache phase. They aren't migrains like they were with my 1st pregnancy but I get a head ache just about every night.
Sleep:  I fall asleep fine, but I'm up and ready to go at about 7am which is 2 hours earlier than my normal wake up time.
Miss Anything:  I miss wine...this will probably be my answer every time I do a belly update
Food Cravings:  No cravings but if I think of something I want or someone posts something on instagram...I have to have it
Aversions:  None
Gender:  Girl
Labor signs:  No
Rings:  Still on
Moody or Happy:  Happy
Looking Forward:  Confirming one more time that she's a girl! Sharing her name..And as much as I'm not a fan of being pregnant, I'm just trying to really enjoy it this time and not wish time would go by faster since this is our last baby.
Notable Mentions:  I think I've done enough crying this pregnancy to last me a lifetime. It's embarrassing how emotional I am. I was never like this with my boys. And thinking about going up to the attic to start sorting through the boy's clothes to donate, ahhh it's too much.

  1. You look adorable :) Maternity pants are like the first thing I wear lol! Yeay for being able to wear "normal" pants that long though!

  2. You are so cute! I was very emotional with Emma, still am! And I was the same way about not really craving things but if I saw someone with something. I had to have it.

  3. oh to have such a sweet baby belly again! you look beautiful! :)

  4. You look wonderful! I just came across your blog and I'm enjoying reading it. Congratulations on your girl! My first is a boy, and I'm expecting a girl this time around, and I had to chuckle at the part about you being more emotional this time than with your boys - it's been the complete opposite for me! I was always crying during my pregnancy with my son, and I've felt pretty emotionally stable this time around. It's funny how pregnancy affects women so differently!
