18 Weeks Bumpdate

How Far Along? 18 weeks, 2 days! Crazy that I'm almost halfway

Size of Baby: A sweet potato

Weight Gain: 6-7 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Busted out the belly band this week and I'm wearing a few maternity tops (like this one pictured above), but mainly my regular clothes still.

Stretch marks: None yet. Also, one thing I did have with Camden that I haven't had (yet) during this pregnancy is the linea nigra.

Symptoms: I feel good most of the time, but getting a lot of headaches that seem to stick around for-ev-er. They are so not fun! Other than that, feeling good. 

Cravings: It's really pathetic how many sweets I've eaten this pregnancy...ugh. Let's not even talk about it.

Gender: Boy! We are so excited to give Cam a little brother! (he does have a name but we're keeping it a secret until his birthday)

Mood: I feel like I've been much more pleasant this pregnancy compared to last, but I guess you'd have to ask Billy to know for sure. Or maybe I will just stick with that. :)

Nursery: We've made great progress in baby boy's nursery! This weekend his crib and dresser will be put together, and we have a paint color picked out for the walls! We've decided to do a nautical theme (you know how much we love boating in the summer) and I've found some really great things the past week, so it's all sitting in his room waiting to be hung/arranged! We hope that when we start visiting the cottage to go boating early this summer that we can find some local things to add to his room, too. 

{little brother onesies are both from here, heir to the throne onesie from here}

Movement: I found out this week at our ultrasound that I have an anterior placenta, which is why I haven't felt him as much as I did with Cam. I was starting to wonder because I felt so many kicks early on with Cam! But, I do still feel him (it's even better when I do) and I'm sure in the next few weeks I will start feeling him more and more!

Sleep: I don't remember the last time I haven't fall asleep on the couch before 10pm. Sleep is no problemo over here...

Workouts: 3 per week and still keeping me sane

Anything making you queasy or sick:  No real aversions

Best Moment This Week: Having our big anatomy ultrasound the other day! Doctor reassured us that baby looks perfectly healthy, nothing to be concerned about, and measuring right on track. Music to our ears!

Looking Forward To: Getting his nursery set up and feeling more kicks!
