How Far Along: 18 weeks

Maternity Clothes: 1/4 in the maternity clothes. They just feel better, and my other shirts feel like they could show midriff at any point! :)
Sleep: I have been getting to bed earlier, even though my schedule is a little off due to DST. I am excited about it though because it means tax season is over in nearly a month, and Ryan and I can start our walks in the evenings again! Falling asleep is not hard for me, but staying asleep is. I feel like I get up every 2 hours when my bladder feels close to exploding!

Food Cravings: This week it was a hamburger. I definitely didn't have it from the best place, but DANG! It was so good! Ryan is getting a little worried because of the weird foods I am wanting. It will literally be because I saw a commercial on the radio or ad for it...that never happened before pregnancy. The Publix ad did help me stock up on some super sweet strawberries! They are 3 for $5 and DELICIOUS! Tonight I mixed them in with granola, poppy seed dressing, and mixed greens!

Food Aversions: Ate another grilled chicken sandwich last week! I am going for a piece of grilled chicken this week...wish me luck!

Favorite MOMENT: I STINKIN' LOVE when my sweet son kicks me. Right now it feels like a finger poking me, and it is the best thing ever. I know they will get stronger, but I think I will love each love tap.
     Ryan and I made a trip to Home Depot and used a gift card we asked for at Christmas! No one knew we were expecting and our parents kept asking us what we wanted. One thing we knew was a fan for our boy's room. We picked out a good one, so now it just needs to be installed. We have time!

Our Baby in Veggie/Fruit Terms: A sweet potato!

  • He's yawning, hiccuping, sucking and swallowing?
  • He's also twisting, rolling, punching and kicking, too!
Mom and I have been talking through nursery ideas. I bring home our choices and Ryan makes the final selection. This past week, I found some sheets and swatches for curtains. 22 mores weeks until we make it to our 40 week mark! We head back in 2 weeks for our 20 week. I can't wait to see our little man up close again. Time is flying by, and I am enjoying each moment!
