18 Weeks

How far along?: 18 weeks
Baby's size: BK is the size of a sweet potato
Total weight gain/loss: Up 4.5 pounds total
Stretch marks?: None thankfully
Sleep?: Good sleep with all the snow days this week!  We only went to school 2 days out of 5 and both were two hour delay days
Maternity clothes?: Tried maternity jeans today, they weren't too bad!
Best moment this week: We got his crib!!!  We Jason also painted his walls during the one snow day
Worst Moment: Trying to find a date for the baby shower that suits everyone (what an impossible task!!)
Symptoms: Nothing too bad, just a sore lower back sometimes
Cravings?: None really
Miss Anything?: We sold pretzel sandwiches for the KJF and I REALLY wanted one, but couldn't have the lunch meat :-(
Movement: He's being a wiggle worm!  (Only I can feel him so far though)
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Nope
Gender: B-O-Y!!!
What is baby up to?: From What to Expect When You're Expecting: "Your pregnancy back pain may have you tied up in knots, but your baby's getting ready to bust a move. At five and a half inches long and five ounces in weight, he now may be large enough for you to feel him twisting, rolling, kicking, and punching his way around the womb. Plus, he's developing yawning and hiccupping skills (you may feel those soon, too!) and his own unique set of toe and fingerprints."
