18 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 18 Weeks
 (You can check out my 18 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my 16 17 week appt. I had gained 10 lbs total. A little more than I'd have liked to.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity pants and mostly maternity shirts.

Gender: A sweet baby GIRL. :-) We have our actual anatomy scan tomorrow at 3:30, so I'll have more pictures to share with you soon. I can't wait to see our sweet girl again. :-)

Movement: Yes, feeling movement every now and again. Still very light and very few and far between.

Food Cravings: No real cravings yet.

What I miss: Nothing really.

Sleep: Having to get up a couple times a night to use the restroom, otherwise sleeping okay.

Symptoms: No real symptoms right now other than a growing belly. :-)

Best Moment this week: Spending Thanksgiving and the long weekend with family.

What I am looking forward to: Seeing our sweet girl on the ultrasound tomorrow and all the Christmas festivities over the next few weeks. :-)
