18 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 18 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby T is about the size of a bell pepper
Total Weight Gain: 4 lbs
Maternity Clothes: I've graduated to maternity pants and some regular pants still with the Bella Band.  Nothing zips or buttons anymore! 
Gender: GIRL!!!
Movement: She is moving all around in there as we've seen a few times but I'm not sure if what I'm feeling is the baby or not.  I felt some fluttering the other night when I was laying in bed and then again when I was at the dentist.
Sleep: I love sleep. :) I've been sleeping pretty good this week.  Some nights I wake up several times a night, sometimes none or just once.
What I miss: Nothing really right now
Cravings: Sweets
Symptoms: I feel pretty good! Just tired a lot and some tightness in my stomach.
Best Moment this week: Finding out the gender and seeing our sweet baby girl moving around!  She looks healthy and strong!  We were soooo excited to finally find out the gender that I could hardly sleep last night!  This morning I was laying in bed before the alarm went off thinking of the Disney World commercial when the cute little boy says "I'm too excited to sleep!".  That's how I felt!  :)

Ha, the end of your post made me smile when you mentioned that commercial. My mom used to mimic the boy all the time when she was happy about something - so cute!
