How Far Along: 18 Weeks
Size of baby: Turtle is the size of a sweet potato
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 7.5 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Loving my maternity pants and slowly gearing up for some maternity shirts/sweaters.
Gender: Still don't know but I have a cool idea how we're going to reveal the gender to our family on Thanksgiving Day. HINT: A Turtle something will be involved. :)
Movement: Still just a few flutters.
Sleep: I'm back on the crazy sleep train. I've been having wacky dreams again and I tend to wake up several times a night because I can't seem to find a comfortable position.
What I miss: Since I'm only treating myself to one caffeinated drink a week I'm really missing a Starbucks Peppermint White Mocha. All the red Starbucks cups are making me jealous! I definitely miss coffee.
Cravings: Moes and cinnamon sugar twisted/braided doughnut. I'm also still enjoying sweets.
Symptoms: Still the emotional basket case...although some days are better than others. I somehow seem to cry even when I'm not upset....like when the song my Dad and I danced to at my wedding came on the radio the other day. I cried like a baby on 285 while listening to Steve Curtis Chapman. I also cried to Darrius Rucker's "It Won't Be Like This for Long". Who am I?!?!?!?!?!
Best Moment this week: Finally getting that cinnamon sugar doughnut. I'd been craving it for DAYS!
