18 Week Update

I've been wanting to do one of these for awhile, but kept putting it off. Hopefully I can keep up with them!

Today is: October 28, 2012

How far along: 18 weeks

Total weight gain: 7 lbs. 

Baby is the size of: A bell pepper.

Baby is a: Boy! EEEK!!!!!!!!

Maternity clothing: Maternity Jeans, but regular tops.

Sleep: Once I do actually go to bed I have no problems falling asleep or staying asleep. I need to do better about getting to bed earlier though. 

Movement: Yes!!! I started feeling movement at 16 1/2 weeks. Little flutters really low and now they are getting stronger and more frequent. He is really low so I know it's him!

Cravings/Aversions: Cravings? Salads, fruit, sandwiches, pickles(SO WEIRD), sour candy, Dr. Pepper. Not really any aversions. 

-Achiness. Some round ligament pain. 
-Having to pee CONSTANTLY. 
-Second UTI in a row. :(
-My hip pain still comes and goes, but Josh can pop my hip back into place now so that's good.

I'm looking forward to:
-Working on the nursery. Probably won't happen till after Christmas though.
-Making some things for our little guy. I will post the name soon.
-Josh and Addi being able to feel him kick.
-Sleeping more! :)
