18 Weeks

How far along?  18w3d

Total weight gain?  About 8 pounds (I’m weighing about 124 pounds right now)

Maternity Clothes?  Living in maternity jeans every day and leggings.  Some maternity tops but mostly just my regular tops.

Stretch Marks?  No

Sleep?  Sleep has been better.  Still getting up several times to go to the bathroom, still having some crazy dreams, restless legs sometimes, but nothing really too terrible.

Best moment this week?  This past week FLEW by.  I was so busy running around after work every day that I just blinked at it was the weekend.  My step-mom and dad bought us the dresser for the nursery which should be on the way this week.  I need to get the nightstand and then all the big pieces (besides the rocker) will be bought.  I also got think to hear baby girls heartbeat at my doctors appointment yesterday, beating away at 130-140 bpm.  Our 22 week ultrasound is scheduled for a month from today!  

Miss anything?  Actually, not really.

Movement?  Nothing yet, but hopefully soon. 

Food cravings?  Sweets always sound good.  Other than that nothing too crazy.

Anything make you queasy or sick?  Not a darn thing!

Have you started to show yet?  Yep, the bump is here to stay.

Gender?  Girl

Labor Signs?  No

Belly button in or out?  In

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time?  Generally feeling happy, sometimes moody, but I think that’s just part of being a chick.

Looking forward to?  Feeling some movement, hitting the halfway mark, and seeing baby girl at the 22 week anatomy scan. 


  1. The best part of feeling them move the first time, and knowing for sure it's them, is going "Oh, that wasn't gas last week!" :) It will happen soon. With Maggie I was about 20 weeks.

  2. Loving that bump! And I still can't wait for you to feel that movement!

  3. Cute bump!! So happy for you and glad you're feeling good! Can't wait for you to feel some movement. :)

  4. You popped! What a sweet bump!! You'll start to feel movement soon. At first it will feel like gas bubbles. It's the best feeling ever. At least I thought so.

  5. I agree that your belly popped this week- adorable bump!
