How far along? 18 weeks today!
How big is baby? 5 1/2 inches long from crown to rump, and now weighing 7 ounces.
Weight gain? 10 pounds. Hovering in the “acceptable range”, even if I am at the top…
Stretch Marks? Too soon!
Maternity clothes? I received a LOT of clothes from a KY friend, who after 3 boys is DONE. 🙂 I haven’t had a chance to go through them all, but there are lots of jeans, dresses, and work shirts. Between that and what I received from my sister in law…I’m pretty set on maternity clothes!
Sleep? Eh…not a good day to ask. After a travel weekend in Kansas for a wedding…I’m feeling rather exhausted.
Cravings? I made chili last night and decided it was the best chili in the world. Either I really rose to the occasion while cooking it, or it was a craving that paid off. (Is it just me, or does Chili TASTE like fall? YUM!)
Nursery update? STILL awaiting gender news. Three more weeks…unless I can convince the doctor this Thursday… We may go ahead and buy the crib soon to get one big $ purchase out of the way.
Movement? No. Boooo.
High point? Being visibly PREGNANT instead of possibly just chubby with bad posture. It may have been my dress choice, but I looked very pregnant this weekend! And I had lots of comments and congrats!
Low point? Having to roll out of bed this morning despite feeling like I’d been hit by a truck.
Other: We return to the doctor this Thursday. Hard to believe we’re nearly halfway done with the pregnancy!!
Here are some photos for the 18 week belly, and one of J and I from the wedding. Excuse the “humidity hair” – it has a mind of its own!

Yay for Chili. Fall for sure! Yay for Dr. appt. Keeping fingers crossed they do an ultrasound. It's hard to wait…for me I mean…to know. Hehe! Have a fabulous week!!
