18 Weeks

How far along? 18 Weeks {first 18 week update}
Baby Size: A bell pepper
Total weight gain/loss: I would say a solid 5+ pounds now.
Maternity clothes? Thankfully, the summer time is a great time to wear maxi dresses...lots of maxi dresses!  This one is from Target.
Stretch marks? Still clear, though I am weary as I feel like the bump is growing much faster this time around!
Sleep: Solid, but starting to get some aches and pains.  Time for a pillow!
Best moment this week: Celebrating our five year anniversary!
Miss Anything? Doing pretty well right now.
Movement: More kicks...I think we will be able to fill the baby from the outside soon!
Food cravings: Soft serve!
Gender prediction: The cat will be out of the bag next week...hope Ethan can keep a secret until then!  ;)
Looking forward to: My brother is getting married next month and his fiance is having her bachelorette party up here in Tahoe this weekend!  That's right, I will be out at the clubs with my 18 week bump...get ready for it!
Differences this time around: The bump is growing at warp speed!

  2. Loving the bump - I had so many bachelorettes, 30th birthday parties and weddings with both my bumps. They loved the loud music and constant moving! x
