Yes, you read that headline correctly. I’m currently 21 weeks pregnant, yet I almost forgot to share my 18 week update here. This post has been sitting in my draft folder for the past few weeks, can you tell I’m a bit rusty at blogging? Better to post late than never – read below and learn how week 18 of pregnancy treated me.
18 Week Bump Update
Due Date: March 6th.
How far along: 18 weeks.
Size of baby: 5.5 inches long, 5 to 6 ounces in weight. Baby is the size of a can of cola.
How many days to go: 154!
Total weight gain: 7 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Some maternity clothes, like this casual, green 3/4 length sleeve dress from Target. The material is stretchy and the cut is fitted, making it a very comfortable and flattering dress for any body type. It was under $30 in store and I purchased it in black and green. It’s been the perfect dress for the office or a night out with friends.
Stretch marks: None…yet. Starting to do some research on stretch mark/belly lotions. I plan on trying Burt’s Bees, has anyone tried that one before?
Sleep: Sleep’s been a little rough lately. I’ve been up tossing and turning, not due to discomfort though, but due to the crazy dreams I’ve been having!
Best moment of this week: This past week (week 17), I’ve started to feel a faint tickle which I’m 99% positive is the baby moving. It’s the best feeling.
Miss anything: Pumpkin beer…especially on game day!
Movement: See best moment of the week 🙂
Food cravings: Sweet potato maki.
Anything make your queasy or sick: Nope.
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Gender: 3 more weeks and we find out!
Labor signs: None.
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding rings on or off: Still on. I normally take them off at night to sleep anyways.
Happy or moody most of the time: No complaints here.
Looking forward to: Planning our gender reveal party.
