How far along are you?
18 weeks - almost halfway!
I feel like my belly is finally "rounding" out a little more
How big is Baby?
He's as big as a sweet potato - Weighs between 6-7 ounces and measures 5.5 inches long - He's busy flexing his arms & legs, yawning, hiccuping, rolling & twisting
a sweet baby boy!
Still just shirts...although I need pants the worst. I have a few capri maternity pants, but have not worn them yet. I can "fit" in my normal jeans if I leave them unbuttoned! I'm hesitant to buy maternity jeans since I'll be pregnant throughout the summer. I put up all my winter clothes last weekend and now my closet is pretty empty because I wasn't able to take out but about 1/3 of my summer clothes.
Terrible - I wake up so many times during the night now and can't go back to sleep. My legs always feel restless which drives me crazy and I can never get comfortable. A few nights ago I felt like I was awake half the night because I couldn't stop worrying about the crib we pick out and if it will deliver in time. So random, but it made me lose some sleep for sure!
I think my symptoms list is growing, but I still feel really good despite all of it.
leg/foot cramps at night - acid reflux that began last weekend. yuck. - (less frequent) headaches - back pain - round ligament pain
Yes - I feel him so often now and I love it
Still no aversions - I've been craving grape juice for some reason. I never drank it pre-pregnancy, but it's been so good lately. Will went to the store yesterday before I got off work and bought me regular grape juice AND sparkling grape juice. Delicious. Still craving salsa.
Belly Button in or out?
What I miss?
Sleeping good and through the night :(
I've been looking at the body pillows, but haven't bought one yet. I keep telling Will that we desperately need a king size bed...especially if I get a body pillow AND we have the two dogs sleeping with us! I think part of the reason I don't sleep good is because I feel too crowded...but I feel too bad kicking the dogs out! Priorities, right? Ha! (P.S.-why can't money grow on trees?!)
What I am looking forward to?
Painting his nursery
Best moment of the week?
I THINK we picked out the colors/theme for Crew's nursery. I still have this fear that I'll get tired of whatever we do before Crew actually even arrives and I'll want to change it! Hopefully that's not the case. We also picked out the crib (I think). We are going to try and go register this Saturday which I'm pretty excited about. It's overwhelming thinking about all that we need to register for!
"Can't wait for Crew! Cleaned out some more stuff from the baby room yesterday getting ready for his arrival!!"
