My little June Bugs @ 18 weeks

(Being silly)

How far along? 18 Weeks!!

Baby's Size? Babies are now the size of a sweet potato!
Baby's become amazingly mobile (compared to you, at least), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking, and swallowing. And baby is finally big enough that you'll soon be able to feel her movements.

Weight Gain? 8lbs

Maternity Clothes? All maternity pants. Might need to start looking at tops. Mine still fit they are just getting short.

Stretch marks? None!! I just hope it stays this way.

Belly button in or out? It's pretty much even with the rest of the belly. This week maybe I will be brave and do a bare belly shot.

Sleep? Terrible, my hips, shoulders and back hurt. If I do get comfy I have to go to the bathroom.

Foods I am loving? Still tomatoes with salt and Ice water, lots and lots of ice. Last night with dinner I cut up zucchini, squash and red potatoes cooked them on the stove and they were delish. I might do this every night!! lol

Foods I am hating? Nothing new

Best moment this week? making an apt for the anatomy scan.

Movement? Just the one on the right.

Symptoms? stuffy nose that has become bloody (YUCK) back aches, hips and shoulder aches while sleeping, leg cramps. Its been a lovely week :)

Genders? No Clue but will find out WEDNESDAY!!! My apt got changed!!!!!

What I miss? Not having to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.

What I'm looking forward to? Finding out the sex

Weekly Wisdom: eat slowly.

Milestone:Being in the 2nd trimester!

Emotions: Excited. Can't wait to find out the sex and start feeling them.


  1. Oh dear, you sound like me when I was pregnant with the sleep... I am a terrible sleeper and when I was pregnant it was AWFUL! So much pain. I wish I had advice, but I even was seeing a massage therapist and chiropractor and nothing helped. Just gotta ride it out and know it's for a good cause!!

  2. How exciting that the big day is Wednesday:) I cant wait to here the genders!!!!

    Love that you are craving such healthy foods good for you girl!!!

    P.s. Love the little belly....it growing by the week
