This post was supposed to come out on Friday but a lot is going on at work and I just didn't have the opportunity to get it written before it got crazy. So enjoy your Monday bump post. I have the strangest shaped bump. I've never had the perfectly round basketball, more like an Easter egg so you'll see my stomach developing into a long protrusion versus a cute little basketball.
Due Date? September 27th (will confirm a c-section date as we approach September)
How far along? 18 weeks
How big is baby? About the size of a sweet potato. About 5.6" and 6.7oz (up almost an ounce from last week and 1/2 an inch)
Weight gain? +3
Maternity clothes? All maternity pants all the time!
Stretchmarks? Nothing new
Sleep? Sleeping really well actually.
Best moment this week? Not only do I feel flutters from the outside, I can also feel serious movements when the baby moves around.
Movement? Above. Yes! A lot of movement.
Food cravings? Starcrunch and Zebra Cakes!
Gender? Find out Friday!!
Labor signs? none.
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss? We went out Friday night for some appetizers and Rick was able to have a large margarita, Addie and I shared a virgin strawberry daiquiri. At least I could enjoy that.
What I am looking forward to? Friday's gender reveal.
Milestones? Outside movement.
Next doctor's appointment? Friday for the gender reveal!
