18 weeks!

How far along: 18 weeks 

Size of baby: A sweet potato! Baby weights over half a pound now! 

Total weight gain/loss: I haven't been back to the Dr so I don't know exactly but I'm guessing around 10-12 lbs. 

Maternity clothes: Still wearing both maternity and non maternity, but mostly maternity. I got some maternity leggings this weekend and OMG. What a difference they make! I had been wearing regular ones and just dealing, but oh boy not any longer. I will be wearing them almost every day, in a variety of colors, don't judge.


Gender:  Baby Green is a sweet little BOY!

 Movement: Not much yet. Feeling something that feels like bubbles or pops. It happens like 5 times in a row so I know it's something. But nothing like feeling a kick. Maybe soon! 

Sleep: Sleep hasn't changed much. I am sleeping with lots of pillows and I get pretty comfortable. I just wake up in the middle of the night wide awake and can't go back to sleep. After I've worked a 12 hour shift though I sleep soooo good.

Cravings: Nothing new this week. I do love pickles and mustard, but the pickles part isn't anything unusual for me. I wish I had a weird pickles dipped in chocolate, or something fun to talk about. 

Best moment this past week: Shopping for baby boy! And talking about names! So excited about that!!! 

Symptoms: I really feel great. Not really tired anymore and have lots of energy. Nasal congestion is still here but I think it's better now that I'm using the humidifier. I really can't complain! 

What I'm looking forward to: Starting the nursery! I can't wait to get the furniture and paint and decorate and oh my! And I'm super excited about going to Alabama on Wednesday and seeing all my family! AND super excited to eat lots and lots of turkey and not feel guilty about making a second plate! haha :)

Milestones: Baby is growing rapidly and yawning, sucking, swallowing, hiccuping and kicking! 

Mood: Happy, happy, happy! 

Labor Signs: no no no, 22 weeks to go! Wow, we are almost half way!! 

Wedding rings on or off: on

In front of Duke chapel...where we got married! 

Shopped a little this weekend! (thanks to Ant B for the bib and socks!!)

Hiiii cutie!
