"Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon."
How far along? 18 weeks (that seems SO FAR along to me!)
Baby’s Size: sweet potato :) Almost six inches, from head to rump. I wonder how long the legs are?
Total Weight Gain: I still have no idea. I'll find out when I get home from vacation.
Maternity Clothes: Yup! I've been spending a lot of time on the beach in a coverup or even (gasp!) my regular bikini. Sometimes you just can't swim without exposing the baby belly, lol.
Gender: We find out in less than a week!! :D A boy, I think! But still hoping for a girl :)
Movement: Peanut kicks like crazy when I'm trying to fall asleep. Just soft little kicks. I love it!
Sleep: Yeah. Right.
Symptoms: Hunger, strange dreams, back pain, and leg cramps.
Best Moments this week: Beach time!
Food Cravings: Anything and everything.
Food Aversions: No new ones, really.
What I miss: Sometimes, when I'm in my bathing suit, I miss my flat stomach. But the baby bump IS pretty cute.
What I am Looking forward to: On Monday we have another ultrasound, so I'll get to see Peanut again and find out the sex. I'm also looking forward to getting my amnio test results. Of course, I'm absolutely DREADING the amnio itself, but I'm sure it'll be worth it to get a clear picture of exactly what's going on. Hopefully it'll be good news and I'll FINALLY be able to relax and stop worrying so much.
Milestones: First time on the beach with my baby belly, hehe.
