Bump Watch :: 18 Weeks

Go State!

How far along: 18 weeks


Size of Baby: 5.6 in & 6.7 oz



Fruit/vegetable comparison: Sweet Potato



Total weight gain: 4 pounds



Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good lately.  Just getting up occasionally in the middle of the night still but not bad.



Movement: Still feeling tiny movements.  It's not very regular yet so I'm exited for it to become more consistent.



Unglamorous body changes: On Monday morning after drinking some juice I got sick in the trash can in my office out of the blue!  I guess the juice didn't agree with me, and I haven't had it since.  Then on Wednesday night, Ryan & I picked up some McDonalds on the way to his softball game.  I started to eat the french fries and thought they tasted funny to me.  Then I took one bit of the cheese burger, gagged and spit it out of the car.  I think I'm done with McDonalds for awhile...



Maternity Clothes? Yes, I've started to notice my regular shirts are feeling a little too short and snug for me lately.  I've been transitioning over to maternity tops because they are just so much more comfortable!



Showing: Some angles I look pregnant and other angles I feel like I just look fat.  Ready for a rounder belly!



Food cravings: Still no real cravings, just done with fruit juice and McDonalds (see unglamorous body changes).



What I miss: Ryan had a Cherry Coke the other day and I was so jealous.  Why don't they make those in caffeine free non-diet?



Strange experiences: Probably just having my first food aversions this week.



Milestones: The baby is yawning, hiccuping, sucking and swallowing now.  As well as, twisting, rolling, punching and kicking too. (per thebump.com)



Best moment this week: Hmmm, not too much going this past week.  But I will have to say date night with the hubs!  We're trying to get as many in as possible before our lives are completely changed.



Looking forward to: Finding out what we are having in 1 week!!  Also looking forward to my work trip to San Francisco & our vacation to Vegas for Ryan's 30th birthday all happening next week.  Hopefully that will help make the time go by faster until our doctor's appointment!

  1. Ahh, so close to finding out, only a week now?! You look freaking adorable. Sorry about getting sick, that's no fun. Isn't it weird how it can just happen out of the blue like that?

  3. I drank caffeine through both my pregnancies and the kids are fine ;)
    Also you look adorable! I'm guessing boy since you can't eat McDonalds. Seriously with LB I could not eat anything like that. It's make me so sick but with AB all I wanted was junk food.
    Yay to finding out so soon!
