I'm 18 weeks!
How Far Along: 18 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a sweet potato.
Total Weight Gain: I’m guessing 8-9 pounds!?
I have an appointment on Monday, I’ll know for sure then.
Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing all my normal clothes still.
Gender: BOY!! Baby Cullen!!
Movement: I might have felt him a time or two although I’m not positive. I can’t wait for those distinct movements so I know it’s him and not my tummy digesting something, ha.
Sleep: Sleep is still great, I love sleeping/napping!
What I miss: not a thing
Cravings: Nothing, although EVERYTHING sounds good! I can’t wait to feast tomorrow!!
Symptoms: None! :)
What I’m looking forward to: We have an appointment on Monday, I can’t wait to hear our little guys heartbeat!!
I have been falling asleep on my left side at night, I almost always do but I always wake up on my back. I’ve read that sleeping on your back while pregnant is not the best for blood circulation to the heart. The weird thing is I wake up with a bulge in my stomach, it’s obviously Cullen but it’s so strange to see!! I will have to take a picture soon! It does not look like a pregnant tummy, it looks like I have a little alien in my tummy ;) hehe
I’ve also noticed already that he favors my right side, Billy has seen it and felt it too. My stomach will look totally lop-sided!
Also, sometimes I’m only comfortable on my stomach but I’ve read that it is totally fine to sleep on your stomach when pregnant and not harm the baby at all. It will get to a point where laying on my stomach will no longer be comfortable.
pics for the week…
I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Gussy does as well....
We can't wait to wake up tomorrow and have Billy cook us breakfast and watch the parade!!
Then we'll be heading to my parents house for the day and Billy's sisters house for dessert in the evening.
Gus gets to snack a little throughout the day too, he is a little turkey butt ;)
Cullen and I plan to eat A LOT hope you all do too!
