18 Week Bumpdate

18 weeks (4) copy
I feel like I have popped just a little the last few days. Belly feels higher and heavier! And please excuse the outfit. I was too lazy to change for the photo.

How far along: 18 weeks!
Baby: Is the size of a sweet potato
Total Weight Gained: Up another 1/2 lb this week. So that brings it up to 2 1/2 lbs! appetite is increasing, which is good because Hubby was thinking I was starving our child. 
Sleep: is great. I love sleep. I love naps. 
Maternity Clothes: a pair of jeans from Old Navy that are still too big and I just bought a pair of jeans from H&M that are perfect! I love them. Full belly band and all, they still look like fashionable jeans. A definite recommend if you are preggo. (Who knew H&M had a maternity section?!)
Best Moment of the Week: getting TCBY for my first time- vanilla frozen yogurt with blackberries & strawberries, simply amazing. I can't wait to go back! 
Food Cravings: pretty much any fruit, love em. And I've really been wanting Boardwalk french fries.
Aversions: steak & shrimp. 
Symptoms: preggo mind...I'm pretty sure it's arrived! Clumsier too..dropping things left and right. && I'm still occasionally getting Oh and minor lower back discomfort has already started, eek. I'm in for it!
Movement: is picking up! I've been able to feel baby from the outside a bunch more now. This morning laying in bed I would poke at my belly and he/she would kick back at me. Amazing every time.  
Gender:  9 days until the big ultrasound!
What I miss: feeling normal on a daily basis, though I don't know if I will ever really feel 'normal' again!
What I'm looking forward to: Finding out whether our sweetness is a handsome baby boy or beautiful baby girl!
Weekly Wisdom: I've got nothin right now.
Milestones: He/she is now developing fingerprints and yawning!

If you haven't already make sure you take a guess at Baby Pug's gender on the top left of my blog! only 9 days left to vote :)
