Week 18

How Far Along:  18 Weeks

Size of Babies: The Babies are approximately the length of a bell pepper and weigh approximately 7 ounces each

Total Weight Gain: +8 lbs total as of my January 19th appointment

Maternity Clothes: I wear mostly maternity clothes, but I can still wear a lot of my regular tops and dresses.

Gender: Our official gender/anatomy ultrasound is on January 31st. But...our Dr. friend took a look for us last week. ;)

Movement: I've started to feel them move a little bit.  It feels like little flutters and kind of takes my breath away when it happens.  It's like butterflies in a good way, not in a nervous way.

Sleep:  Interrupted nightly for multiple potty breaks and mild discomfort.  I've started using my boppy body pillow more and it is helping with comfort and support.

What I Miss: Sleeping on my tummy

Cravings: Pepsi, fruit smoothies, and muffins

Symptoms:  I've received some relief from my allergy symptoms, which I am thankful for.

Best Moment(s) So Far: Going fabric shopping with my mom for the bedding and starting to plan the nursery.
