18 Weeks!

Posting a day early since I won't have my laptop tomorrow.

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 18 weeks.

Size of baby: 8" long (total, still about 5 1/2" from crown to rump) and roughly 1/2lb - wow! I guess they really start growing in high gear now.

Gender/Name: Only 2 weeks away from knowing, then we'll reveal the name.

Maternity Clothes: I love them, so comfy. I need more maternity tops though I only have 1.

Movement: I'm 100% sure I'm feeling PJ. Gas doesn't have a schedule lol. I feel the most around 7-8am and 4-7pm. The movements are mostly on my right side and in the middle...wonder if there's a boogie man on my left?

Sleep: I started putting a pillow between my knees and it's helped - some.

Symptoms: Sometimes if I've sat too long then get up to walk (like at work) I get a pain that shoots from my butt down my leg - what is that?!? When I don't get a good night of sleep and toss and turn I occasionally feel round ligament pain because I moved too quick.

What I miss: Nothing if I'm being honest.

What I'm looking forward to: Finding out PJ's sex of course and well we'll be at Disney this weekend :)

Questions/Concerns: I sometimes have wig-out moments where I realize what we got ourselves into and it freaks me out a little. All of the "what if's" get to me. Will we be good parents, what about the cats, will I be able to breastfeed, will I hear it cry at night?!? Geez...

Cravings: Water

Best moment this week: Knowing for sure I feel PJ and I can't wait for it to be felt from the outside too (whenever that may occur)


  1. I think everyone has moments where they freak out a little. Once he/ she is here your instincts will kick in. You will just know what to do. You will be a natural!

  2. WoW. Thank you for your sharing! If you have any problems with the other answer is right, I would definitely recommend it because it was my biggest complaint
