bump update: 18 weeks

This past Saturday marked 18 weeks! PHEW! Almost half way...I thought every once in awhile I would do a little update for myself to remember things. And I haven't done one since we shared the news! So here we go...

How far along? 18 weeks 2 days

Size of Babies: sweet potatoes- about 5.6 inches

Total weight gain/loss: Still down/no gain, I have an appointment next week and I guess they'll check there.

Symptoms: My all day long nausea is finally better! I still feel sick or get sick in the evening some before bed/after dinner, but definitely not as much. Tired and get worn out/out of breath easily. I also get heartburn which I've never had before.

Miss Anything? Champagne

Movement: Yes! I first felt them move Friday, February 27. It was such an amazing feeling. I don't feel them all the time/every day, but I love when I do and can't wait to feel more.

Food cravings: Strawberry Banana Smoothies, carbs, Dr. Pepper

Food aversions: I'm still feeling pretty picky. Meat/protein doesn't always sound good, but I did have my first steak in over 4 months last night. But just a little bit. Fish doesn't sound good at all, unless it is in sushi. 

Have you started to show yet: Yup!

Gender prediction:  Boy and girl!

Nursery: We had the nursery painted Classic Gray by Benjamin Moore. It is much more white than gray and I like that. We bought the crib bumpers and ordered the chandelier. Most everything is picked out, just needs to be purchased.

Looking forward to: Birth......yup already. Ready to meet these babies. I mean I know they need stay in longer (obv), but I'm ready to have them out. 

And I don't have a single bump pic...I've sent a few snapchats, but have no real photos. So that is on the agenda to get one soon so I can remember when I thought I was big, but was really small compared to what I will be.

  1. Put some pictures up! I can't believe you haven't gained any weight with those 2 babies in you! I'm sure it'll all come at the end!
