Baby #2 Bumpdate: 18 Weeks



How Far Along: 18 Weeks

Baby's Size:  Bell Pepper

Maternity Clothes: Yes, mostly maternity clothes, or stretchy shirts

Movement: I feel the baby move every day now and I love it! I don't feel it much during the day though because I really have to be still and paying attention to notice it - they are still very small movements. Greg was able to feel it move the other night though which was exciting.

Sleep: Great. At least one bathroom trip a night though.

Symptoms: Praise God the nausea is getting much better! I still get a bit nauseous toward the end of the day but it is so much better. Yay!

Food Aversions/Cravings: I think I am pretty much eating my normal foods. I have randomly been wanting grapefruit though lately. And spinach salads.

Best Moment this Week: Spending time with family this weekend.

What I miss: Having energy! By the afternoon I feel so tired. Today after lunch we were driving home from Lindsay's house and Cambry fell asleep about 10 minutes before we got home. She did not transfer in. So that was her afternoon nap. I was dying for a nap but it just wasn't possible.

What I am Looking Forward to: Finding out the gender in a little over a week! So so excited! We find out on a Thursday and Greg's parents are coming that weekend so we may tell his parents and my parents together in a fun way that weekend. So I am not sure when I will post the gender - but hopefully sometime that weekend. Did I mention I am a bit excited?? I feel like once we know the gender we can really start to work on stuff. Most of it when can already do now but for some reason I just feel hindered until I know.
