18 Weeks

18 Weeks

Total Weight Gain:  4lbs!  Holy moly, I hope that really wasn't all gained in one week!  The scale at my doctor's office is the only consistent scale I've been on, so this is my official weight gain.

Maternity Clothes?  No new clothes this week, but all my shirts are becoming shorter and shorter!  Time to buy a size up in tanks & tees! 

Have You Started to Show?  Still no comments from strangers, so I guess this answer should be a "no." Or at least they can't distinguish pregnant from... whatever else they might be thinking.

Stretch Marks? No!  And hopefully I will never be answering "yes."  I've been using some great oil my friend Amanda gave me for Christmas, but that is running out!  Luckily my wonderful husband bought me some Belli Elasticity Oil that I had been wanting!  My friend Christina recommended it; the lavendar smell is amazing!

Sleep?  My Snoogle is now perfectly broken in!  I can't imagine sleeping without it!  It will start traveling with me for sure.  I slept great this week other than the night before our gender scan.

Best Moment This Week:  Finding out the Baby K is a boy!

Miss Anything?  Starting to miss a nice cold cut sandwich...I caved and had one this week.

Movement?  I feel baby boy move everyday!  Little kicks usually when I'm relaxing on the couch or in bed.  Can't wait until they are stronger and Conor can feel them!

Food Cravings:  That grape laffy taffy is still finding its way into my shopping cart!  I also spotted my first Camp Fire girl of the year and of course had to buy two boxes of candy, it's just so good.  And I bet those darn Girl Scouts are just around the corner!

Food Aversions:  Conor made us a lamb dinner for Valentine's Day!  This is usually one of my favorite meals.  I had a bit of a hard time with the smell for some strange reason, but it tasted delicious!  The only way it would have tasted better was if I could chase it down with some wine.  I also bought my favorite loaf of bread (Polsbo) this week and think it smells like dead fish, ugh!  That was disappointing.

Symptoms:  Body feels good and is getting more in tune with baby boy's first little movements.  At our ultrasound they told us he is growing wonderfully.  He is measuring right on schedule with his due date, if not a little bit bigger!

Staying Active?  Walked at Alki on a couple sunny days, and finally made the first step towards joining Allstar Fitness!  They have a 7 day trial membership so I can make sure I like it first.  There's going to be much more exercise in my future!

Belly Button:  Currently "in," but I'm guessing it'll pop out in the next month!

Happy or Moody?  So happy!  Getting to see baby boy move around during the ultrasound was such an incredible feeling.  And feeling his kicks each day make me smile!

Nursery Progress:  Found another sale and ordered some more diapers this week!  The company messed up and sent us two extra; Bonus!  I also received a couple "It's a boy" presents from my friend Mikael & my parents!  Now, there are more clothes hanging up in the nursery closet!  For Christmas, my friend Andrea made me the cutest dividers for my baby clothes.  I will start posting some pictures soon! 

Looking Forward to:  Decorating the nursery!  Looking at bedding and paint colors everyday...oh the choices!  I also can't wait til Conor & I decide on a name...
