Baby M Update: Week 18

Happy New Year everyone!

I can’t believe it is already 2012. Where in the world did 2011 go?
I also can’t believe that I am about to start week 19 of my pregnancy and that we get to find out soon what Baby M is.

Here is my week 18 picture.
I was trying to hold my cardigan in a little so you could see my belly better.
I do feel like I “popped” a little more this week.
Want to know more about this week? Here ya go!

How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain: still no idea!
Maternity clothes? I got a few new shirts for Christmas and I have worn a few. Although, only one was really a straight maternity shirt. The others were just baggier.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: Still not great! 🙁
Best moment this week: Finally finding and buying furniture for the nursery! So glad that task is over. That was a lot harder than I thought it would be. lol
Miss Anything? Being pain free!! I really don’t remember what it feels like to not have my back and hips hurt!
Movement: I still don’t think I have felt anything but again… I could have and not realized.
Food cravings: Nope! Still no cravings! Travis appreciates it but I can’t believe it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I had a pretty good week this week- yeah!
Gender: Don’t know yet but as long as Baby M cooperates we will find out January 13!!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Still my killer lower back pain and also killer hip pain.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time with the occasional swing. 😉
Looking forward to: Jan. 6th is our 5 yr. wedding anniversary so can’t wait for that day! And obviously, Jan. 13 to find out the gender!

Don’t forget to cast your votes for whether you think Baby M will be a Boy or a Girl!

    If you are that uncomfortable already you might think about finding a massage therapist trained in prenatal massage. I went to one with my 2nd pregnancy and it was fantastic. I felt so god afterwards and the pain was drastically reduced in my lower back and hips. Good luck!

    Aaaaah I know I'm late but this is so exciting! Bet your bump has grown a lot- mine did between 18-22 weeks like crazy. And then you don't even notice how fast baby/bump are growing until you compare pics. Keep documenting- it's so fun to look back at just a month ago when I thought I was showing alot compared to today 🙂 Yay for babies!
