18 weeks!

December 13, 2010

How far along?  18 Weeks!  (Strange that I'm now starting my 19th week.  This is FLYING by!)

Baby size:  About the size of a bell pepper (or sweet potato...depending on what site you read) and then add some legs!

Total weight gain/loss:  Up 4 pounds from 13 weeks but still 1 pound below pre pregnancy weight

Maternity clothes?  Rubber bands on my pants mainly

Sleep:  I sleep a lot!

Best moment this week:  Getting to hear Georgia's heart beating at my 17 week appointment.

Movement:  I feel it more often but it is not consistent.  It's a tiny bump every few hours and not predictable.  While watching TV (on 12.12.10) I had my hand laying over where I thought see was (she tends to stay on my left side I think...my abdomen is usually tighter on that side and I feel more pressure on that side) and felt her kick with my hand.  As in, I could feel it through the skin for the first time!  I called Jonathan over because she did it like 3 times in a row but once he put his hand there she stopped...darn!

Food cravings:  I'm slowly getting back to normal.  I've started to get more thirsty though...I'm usually the type of person who could go all day and never drink more than half a glass of water.

What I miss:  Nothing really...since I hit 17 weeks things have been going really well (knock on wood!)

What I am looking forward to:  Dec. 29th is my anatomy ultrasound so I'm pretty pumped to see Georgia's every little detail!  (Sometimes I wish I would have agreed to all the extra testing just so I could see her on the ultrasound screen)

Milestones:  Georgia now has finger prints!

Pregnancy Symptoms:  Can I say none (will I regret typing this...ahhh!)  My dr. gave me a prescription for indigestion relief, which we think has been causing my night time nausea, and dare I say it is working like a charm?!?!

Congratulations! One of my friends is also 18 weeks. So exciting!

To answer your question from your sweet comment at Yoga Gal, the color is Benjamin Moore, Florida Keys Blue from Pottery Barn's spring line, I think. They have changed their wheel since then, but BM still has it. I love it- it is bold and just what I wanted for my home office!

As for the scroll, I don't have good news. My sister found it at an antique store in TN many years ago and I swiped it from her! Sorry. :D

Merry Christmas and I hope that your pregnancy continues to go smoothly! What a special time!
