Baby: Bump-Date

How far along? 18 Weeks

Baby is the size of a: Artichoke

Total weight gain: 8lbs and still haven't made it back to my regular Gym routine. Someone give me a little push, encouragement, workout video links, anything......

Maternity clothes? Love them!!! They are the most comfortable thing I have ever put on my body.

Stretch marks? Nope! Living in my body butters and stretch mark lotions. Also, my boss gave me some goats milk lotion and I have been loving it!!

Sleep: Ugh...its rough. 3 dogs also do not help the situation.

Best moment this week: Feeling baby move on the outside for the first time. I quickly tried to get Aaron's hand where it needed to be so he could feel it, but it didn't happen in time. Can't wait for him to feel it!!

Movement: Yes, anytime food is present the baby gets super excited.

Food cravings: Pizza still and coke icee's or just coke if I can't get my hands on an icee.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing right now.

Have you started to show yet: Oh yes!!! Baby is growing away!

Gender prediction: Still have zero of an inkling, but we find out SOON!!!  

Belly Button in or out? In!

Wedding rings on or off? On and still flip flopping around so I might be able to wear them the whole time hopefully.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Ahhh today was a struggle. I cried three times... 1) I watched a dog video on facebook 2) While I was working I was listening to music and "Temporary Home" by Carrie Underwood came on and when it got to the part about the man in the hospital bed I completely lost it. That used to be one of my favorite songs, but now I can't hear it without my precious grandaddy's face being the man in the song. ugh...okay lets think about something else. 3)....can't remember what it was about!

Health Update: The last doctors visit, my blood pressure was "beautiful" the doctor said so I guess the baby aspirin are doing the job on that. I think the blood pressure has been my only health concern. So the goal is to keep that maintained for the remainder of the pregnancy. I'm still so ready to find out the gender of our little angel. We will go back to the doctor in 2 weeks. It's so crazy wondering whats going on in there for weeks at time. It's so relieving to hear that sweet little heart beat.

Thanks for reading :) I will update weekly so stay tuned!
