Week 18 #bumpwatch

a couple days before week 18mark.

How Far Along: 18 weeks! (3-7-15)

Size of the Baby: A Sweet Potato

Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing all normal clothes, but i'm coming across many shirts that are not long enough.. and busted out the elastic waist skirts ;) Also am still holding my pants together with the hair tie.

Stretch Marks: Honestly I really haven't paid too much attention. And haven't tried to prevent. I don't think I got too many or noticeable ones last time either.

Weight gain: I'm now -1-2 lbs down from pre pregnancy weight.

Sleep: Crazy dreams. Still cannot sleep through the night. And now just recent but my bladder is starting to feel very small at night.

Best Moment of the Week: This week, getting to hear little girl's heartbeat. Everything sounds great and healthy! Can't wait to see her next week with the anatomy ultrasound.

Movement: Yes, all the time. This little chick is strong! I started feeling her move about week 15-16. 

Food Cravings: Sweets! Gimme all the candy. I'm also trying to hold back because not sure if you remember but after having Kenzie, I had 9 cavities. 9!! And very clean teeth, but apparently miss K took all my nutrients from me. As she should. ;) But i'm hoping that doesn't happen here. Ouch. And $$.

Gender: Baby Girl!

Belly Button in or out: In but it's pretty flat after breakfast. Crazy. I guess it's 'cuz my uterus is high or just above my bellybutton.

Anything making you queasy or sick?: No thank goodness. I'm pretty lucky.

What I miss: nothing really. Crazy right? although Kenzie's had a cold and has one of her 2yr molars coming in, so a couple times I really wanted a dang drink.

What I'm looking forward to: Monday's anatomy scan. Will she still be a she? :)

Nursery: Sisters get to share a room! It'll make everything so easy too. Everything in one place! Little sister will be in our room for the first six months anyways by our bed in the rock in play which will probably be around the time Kenzie moves into a toddler bed so it'll work out perfectly. I'll just probably get a couple things here and there to tie in her lil sis' name too... ps. Still no idea on her name!

Emotions: i'm doin ok! Holding up pretty well. At times I can have very little patience but for the most part it's ok.

This morning I thought my side by side would be so much of a difference because I was just feeling like I got so big since my last picture last week. After a side by side doesn't look that much different but it just feels especially after I eat, like my stomach is going to burst.
