Bumpdate | 18 Weeks

Bumpdate | 18 Weeks

How Far Along?:  18 Weeks!

Weight Gain: 18 lbs. I seem to be keeping up with my gestational weeks. But I hope I don't keep that up because I do NOT want to have gained 40 lbs by the time I deliver haha.

Gender?: BOY! We finally decided on a theme for the nursery. My new project! I can't wait to start buying decorations.

How Big is Baby?: Baby is the size of a sweet potato. He's 5.6 inches long and 6.7 oz. Him growing so fast sure is making this mama hunnnnngry!

Symptoms: Hungry ALL the time! Not to mention the back pain, heartburn and swollen feet. Thankfully my feet only swell when it's really hot and I've been standing on them all day. With the twins, my feet were swollen like balloons from the time I woke up to the time I went to bed. I'm praying I don't get that bad this time!

Any Food Cravings?: Not really craving too much. I eat a lot of fruit, but other than that nothing!

Sleep: I still sleep like a rock and for some reason always end up on my back. I guess since it's still comfy and I don't have trouble breathing that it should be ok. I just need to train myself to sleep on my sides...ugh.

Stretch Marks?: Nothing new since the twins stretched me out!

Maternity Clothes?: Errrrrday!

Wedding Ring On or Off?: On.

What Do You Miss the Most?: Not being out of breath going up the stairs. I kid you not, I'm winded just walking up the stairs....slowly. What is that all about?!

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: Hubs gets to come home! He gets a break from the field for Labor Day weekend and I can't wait to see him! I know the boys have missed him too!

Labor Signs?: Nope!

Favorite Memory From Last Week?: Having one dog. I know I sound terrible! But having just Nala to worry about, especially while Wes is away, has made my life so much easier! Also Wes got to feel him kick for the first time! I love the look on his face when he finally gets to feel the kicks!
