Baby #3 - 18 weeks

So do I look pregnant yet?  Yeah, I didn't think so.
But now I know why Alexa calls any type of comfy pants "Mommy pants" apparently that's the only thing I wear when we're home. :)

How far along: 18 weeks, 2 days

Size of baby: About 5 1/2 inches head to rump and around 1/2 pound

Weight Gain: 5 pounds

Maternity Clothes: I have been wearing a few more maternity jeans but that's about it.  Still in the annoying in-between stage.  I'm thinking I should stop complaining about it and enjoy it while it's here, huh!? :)

Gender: ??? 

Movement: I have been feeling a lot more action the past couple weeks, I love it!!

Sleep: Great!

What I miss: Not much.

Cravings: Not really.  Maybe salty foods.

Symptoms: Headaches have gotten so much better.  Also, this may be TMI, but I go to the bathroom ALL the time.  I used to have a never ending bladder and even when I was pregnant with Alexa and Braden it wasn't bad, I hardly ever got up in the middle of the night to go even at 9 months pregnant.  This time around is not the same, I have been getting up during the night sometimes more than once already!  Please tell me I will have my good bladder back again someday.

Best moment this week: Feeling lots of movement. 

What I'm looking forward to: Our ultrasound!!  2 weeks away...can't wait to see our little babe!

Wow, 18 weeks already?? This pregnancy seems to be going by fast!! I am so excited for you (still :o) )!
Are you planning on sharing the gender of the baby with us?

Mama M. said...

That is crazy!! I agree with Helga, it's going so fast!! I think you look adorable, even "in between"!

Deanna said...

I can't belive that you are almost half way through your pregnancy already! I'm so happy that all of our kids are so close in age. It makes for great fun when they all get together to play :).

Wow - you look great!! As for me after my 3rd I still get up everynight, but I am a heavy drinker (water that is).

Holy moly! You look awesome for 18 wks! I can hardly tell you have a baby in there! So, are you guys going to find out the sex in 2 wks? I am soooooo curious!
