18 Weeks, and NEWS!
No, the shirt is not particularly flattering...but it covers my ever-expanding-everything!
Yes, the sign is misspelled, but Gage made it and sounded out the word "pregnet." It's cool.
Yes, the sign appears to read "98" instead of "18", but luckily, that's not the case!
We are now (as of 12/25/12) 18 weeks pregnant!
How grateful am I this Christmas? Very!
Size of Baby: Well, I had a sonogram on 12/21, but I totally forgot what she said about length! According to BabyCenter (www.babycenter.com), "Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long and he weighs almost 7 ounces."
Maternity Clothes: Yes, though I am still a fan of wearing Hubby's boxer briefs. Sad, isn't it???
Belly Button In/Out: In.
Labor Signs: No, and thank goodness! It's waaaay too early!
Movement: Yes, and I am eating it up! I remember that toward the end of my pregnancy with Gage, I would just cry and whine "I'm tired of sharing my space!" Now granted, I'm not THAT far along, but I just somehow feel like I'm enjoying every little kick and push and movement that I am lucky enough to feel. I don't know...I think I'm just being a bit more sentimental this time around....
Sleep: Hit or miss. Good nights and bad....
Cravings/Aversions: Not much at this point in the game.... Smells still get to me on occasion, but for the most part, I'm doing okay eating a variety of things. I'm totally okay with spicy foods which is definitely a pregnancy thing.... I NEVER usually eat spicy stuff!
What I Miss: Margaritas & Mimosas.
What I am Looking Forward To: Feeling the baby more and more.... preparing the nursery....
Baby Milestones: Baby's ears are now in their final positions. Myelin is starting to coat the nerves.... All according to BabyCenter.
Next Appointment: January 15th at 21 weeks.
It's a girl!
....let the shopping begin.
