Week 18

Spread the love

How far along? 18 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: Well I go to the doctor this today so I dunno….

How big is baby? Baby is compared to a Sweet Potato this week. Baby is about 5.6 inches long and about 6.7 ounces and growing rapidly. 

  • Baby is yawning, hiccuping, sucking and swallowing
  • Baby is twisting, rolling, punching and kicking too. Big enough you might be able to feel it.

Maternity Clothes?  I haven’t tried on any clothes that weren’t maternity clothes other than my gym shorts and hubbys tshirts.

Stretch Marks? Well I haven’t found any yet but I haven’t looked real hard either.

Best moment this week? Well we have an ultrasound today so that will definitely be it, I’m sure :).  That and telling all our family and friends what we’re having.

Movement? Other than last weeks ultra sound I haven’t felt her move any.

Food Cravings/Aversions? Actually none that I can think of…

What I miss: My clothes fitting.  Not feeling so out of breath all the time.  Sleeping through the night without bathroom breaks.

What I’m looking forward to:  Getting the test results back.  and today’s dr appointment.

Nausea/Vomiting? Well sadly I tossed last nights dinner. I wonder if it is because I ate dinner so late (9ish) or what… I kept telling hubby I didn’t feel good and I apparently was right.

Labor signs? Let’s sure hope not! Way to early!

Gender? We found out we are having a girl although I keep joking that today’s appointment they’ll tell me it’s a boy.

Belly Button in or out?  Still in…. but it looks weird…

Wedding rings on or off?  On although my fingers keep swelling some…

Sleep? One thing about it, I’ve been having some weird dreams that seem soooo real. They wake me up and then I struggle just a bit to calm my mind a bit so I can go back to sleep.

Weekly Wisdom: Trust in God.
