Week 18

Bell pepper

5 1/2 inches, 7 oz.

Baby Changes (Source: BabyCenter.com.)
He's busy flexing his arms & legs. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, & his ears are now in their final position. A protective cover of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born.

Best Moment this Week
I'm gonna have to say, I got pretty excited today when I found a really comfortable jersey skirt at Target... I bought two. It wasn't maternity but it'll work with my tummy. I'm trying to find good everyday clothes that will not be too hot this summer, so if I can find some good tank tops to go with my comfy skirts, I will be good to go!!

1 week!! I'm so excited. I hope baby cooperates!! Josh will get off early afternoon for our appointment, then afterwards we're spending the rest of the day celebrating our anniversary... Josh has the evening planned & won't tell me. So let's hope for an immodest baby for one day!! Then he/she can go back to being quite modest which we know a child Josh & I would create would HAVE to be. :-)

Baby has been very active this week. Saturday he moved around a lot more than usual. A couple nights ago, I was laying in bed & I'm pretty sure he had the hiccups. Every ten seconds or so, he'd jump real big, for a few minutes straight. It was funny, & felt like he would just hop out of my stomach, the movements were so big.

Food Craving
Watermelon, but I'm able to control it now... :-) honestly who has room for a whole watermelon in their fridge every week?? Still eating tons of fruit, raw veggies with ranch dressing. Oh & double noodle soup, you know, the kids' kind. Yum.

I have been sleeping pretty heavy, & waking up feeling so not ready to get out of bed. I could sleep for hours into the morning, but I don't, so I take naps mid-morning after my workout on most days.

What I am looking forward to
Next week! So excited.

Slight nausea mainly in the evenings after dinner, lots of exhaustion, dizziness (during a walk with my mom this weekend I started to veer off to one side for a second. I read this is normal, though very weird.), aversions (I'd really like to enjoy drinking water again soon!).
