18 weeks

YAY for another boring week!

How far along: 18 weeks! 

Baby is the size of a: Sweet potato. Baby should be over 5.5 inches long and almost 7 oz. She/he can yawn, hiccup, suck, and swallow.

Physical symptoms: Same old stretching and the fatigue hit pretty hard again this week.   

Mood: Great! Aside from general anxiety, my mood has been pretty level so far. According to my pregnancy books, this makes Seth a very lucky guy. I think he knows it.   

Total Weight Gain:  Enough. Doctor said that I'm fine, so I'm done worrying about it.

Maternity clothes:  Still wearing my regular clothes but I bought some cute fall things at H&M this week. Have I mentioned that I can't wait for fall? We probably have another 6-8 weeks of disgusting heat down here.    

Sleep: Not too bad this week.

Best moment of the week: Finding out that the results of the NT scan/genetic screening were negative!

Movement: I don't think so. I feel a lot of activity, but nothing that I felt sure was caused by Baby.

Food cravings/aversions: Right now I want to eat everything. Except eggs, they're still gross.

Sex: Not sure yet - possibly we'll find out tomorrow.

Labor signs: None.

What I miss: Can't think of anything this week.

What I am looking forward to: Anatomy scan tomorrow! One more sleep! I'm alternating between being excited and feeling like I'm going to vomit from the nerves. I couldn't sleep last night and I'm sure tonight will be worse.

Milestones: I'm still pregnant and I can't believe it's almost time for the a/s. I've been counting down for weeks.

Showing yet: Yes, definitely. It's not very obvious in most of my regular clothes but if I wear anything tight, my belly is visible. I made a comparison picture between 10 weeks and today since I'm wearing the same thing. See - I told you I finally have real boobs!


  1. Still looking great! Praying for a great anatomy scan and good news! I still remember mine and I seriously threw up in the middle of the scan. We had to roll me over on my side and I threw up in the garbage can. I was nervous, but everything looked great. Here's hoping that your scan goes great and you don't barf like I did!

  2. LOL at Krystal's comment! I will just say that I am praying for you that everything looks perfect tomorrow. I am sure it will. Sending you lots of love <3
    PS: I love the bump!!

  3. You look great! Yeah for anatomy scan :D

  4. Good luck at the a/s, I am sending lots of good vibes, I can't wait for your update! You look great! And I love your little bump :)
