How Far Along: 18 Weeks
Size of baby: Little one is around 6 3/4 ounces and 5 1/2 inches... About the size of a sweet potato.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 4 pounds (I will update this with doctor appointments- their scale and my scale are very different. I finally have a little bump!
Maternity Clothes: I can still wear my regular clothes but am starting to transition into maternity shirts and the maternity pants are still a little bit but they are definitely more comfortable."
Gender: Don't know- we'll hopefully find out February 15th.
Movement: I feel flutters every day and can feel little one rolling and moving. Every now and then I'll get a hard kick or poke. I'm sure they will become more frequent as little one grows.
Sleep: I am more used to sleeping on my side now and still get up usually once a night. My joints are loosening up a bit and are now a little sore, especially after staying in one position for too long.
What I miss: Ibuprofen! And sleeping on my back.
Cravings: Nothing in particular right now. Early on it was Cherry Icees but that has passed. I love iced water with lemon and am really enjoying root beer right now, too.
Symptoms: Nothing major right now- yay! I still have the stuffy/runny nose but it seems a little bit better. I am still having some heartburn but not on a regular basis. I really cannot complain after hearing what some women go through. I am very blessed!
