18 weeks

How far along:  18 weeks

Baby Size:  Small electric shaver :) or a sweet potato.

Weight:  127.4.  I think I'm up 4 1/2lbs


  • Super emotional
  • Cramping
  • Tired

Maternity Clothes:   I still am fine in regular clothes, but I got a bunch of stuff from my sister so I've started mixing them in.

Sleep:  I got a few 2 hours stretches Saturday night.  It's the little things that make me happy.  I even got an almost 3 hour stretch Sunday night (and then was up with insomnia the next hour), but it seems to be getting better.

Cravings/Food Aversions:  Pizza, donuts and fruits (I should probably indulge that one the most).  I'm starting to eat meat, but burger and chicken aren't working for me.  I did have a brat and then a sausage mcmuffin from Mcdonalds and had no issues with those.

Belly Button:  In

Rings on or off: In

Gender:  After we tell a few more people, I'll share it!

Name:  Probably have a first name, still debating the middle.

Movement: Nope, I 'think' I may have felt something, but I really don't think it was the baby. 

Best moment: Knowing that everything was okay with the baby.  Rob getting to see the baby again.  Finding out the sex of the baby!

Looking forward to:  Being halfway done.  2 more weeks!

What I miss:  Cherry coke.  I'm probably going to have to have some soon.

Labor signs: No thank you.

Appointments:   20 week appt in 2 weeks. 

Misc.  Last night Rob made cookies (or really pillsbury made them and he just baked them) and I was not eating obe right away and Rob told me to "Eat the cookie because the baby wants it"  :)

The song by Gary Alan "Every storm runs out of rain" has been my motivation this pregnancy.  I first heard it a week before I found out I was pregnant.  It came on in the car today.  As it's down pouring outside.  Ironic?  But now the sun is out and shinning. :)



  1. Congratulations! Is this your first? I am expecting my fourth (and first girl) this week! Good luck to you!!

    1. It is my first. Good luck on your delivery. Enjoy that sweet baby girl!

  2. I'm with Rob mummies definitely need cookies :-)

    Thanks so much for sharing at The Friday Baby Shower Alice x

  3. Aww another cherry coke addict. Don't feel guilty if you decide to indulge. I drank it nearly daily when pregnant and my son is fine haha. A bit of a honey badger maybe, but overall okay. Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy. I hope it goes by quickly and easily for you.

    Thanks for linking up at the Tuesday Baby link up. Hope to see you again next week.
