18 Weeks

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

My baby bump at 18 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: No change this week.  I'm still down 6.5 lbs so far.

Movement:  I think I have felt a few little flutters, but still waiting on definite movements.

Boy or Girl? Two more weeks 'til we get to find out!

Food Cravings: Nothing new.

How I'm Feeling: I've been feeling pretty great lately.  Nothing uncomfortable other than a few headaches and some round ligament pain.  

Size of Baby: Sweet Potato (5.5 in, 5 oz)

Baby's Development:  Baby has now mastered the art of the yawn.  He or she is also working on twists, rolls, kicks, and punches.  Nerves are forming more complex connections.  Those in the brain are further specializing into the ones that serve the senses of touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing.  

Best Part of this Week: This week, a few strangers have noticed that I am pregnant.  One person only whispered something I wasn't supposed to hear, but that was probably only because you never really want to ask someone if they are expecting.  It's good to know that I actually look pregnant enough for people I don't know to say something.

What I'm Looking Forward To: Our next ultrasound...only 14 more days!
