[she is 18 weeks pregnant]

How far along: 18 weeks
Size: Sweet potato
Gender: We think we know but we are keeping it a secret until we get confirmation at the anatomy ultrasound in a couple weeks.
Symptoms: Tugging and pulling - normal growing "pains"
Maternity clothes: I still love my maternity jeans. And I'm living in a lot of the basic t-shirts I got. I've also embraced nightgowns (above-the-knee). Whatever is comfortable is what you will find me in these days.
Stretch marks: None, yet!
Sleep: Some days I feel the intense urge to nap but I still haven't learned to sleep in daylight. Sleep at night isn't so rough. I still get up to use the bathroom but nothing wild. Dreams during the second half of my sleep are pretty vivid though.
Movement: One of my very best friends described it as when you lightly cup your hand around a butterfly. And I have definitely been feeling those. Nothing regular and I have to be pretty still. I had lunch with my mother-in-law and felt a good one after eating.
Cravings: I feel so guilty because this week I have eaten some serious junk. Pizza, fast food, ice cream... I still eat my fruits and veggies but I have definitely not been as good this week.
Changes from last week: Belly is definitely bigger and I've noticed a faint linea nigra coming in hot.
Best moment of the week: Every single "fluttering" that is probably baby. :)
Miss anything: Sushi. Cold deli sandwiches. Medium rare steaks. But it's all worth it.
Looking forward to: Feeling legit movement and knowing 100% if little one is a boy or girl.
Scripture for the week: You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You. - Isaiah 26:3

Sabey is back! :)
