18 weeks!

  Yeah, so this is what happens when your real camera is dead and you have to use your iphone for the picture.  But at least I took a picture!

How Far Along:
I am 18 weeks today!

 Baby Size:

The baby is 5.6 inches long and 6.7 ounces in weight--about the size of a sweet potato.

Maternity Clothes:
Yup.  I'm still mixing in some non-maternity tops, but bottoms are all maternity.

We are still sleeping like we are 80 year olds over at the Evans house.  I'm pretty sure Bech thinks my pregnancy induced early bedtimes are the best perk ever.


It is getting a little more regular.  But the baby isn't really that active during the day and I usually go to bed super early.  So I don't get to feel him/her move that much.

Best Moment This Week:

It was 80 degrees yesterday!  80 degrees!  Granted, it might snow a little tomorrow night, but I really enjoyed my 80 degree day.

Food Cravings:

Crisp and cold things.  And water.  Lots and lots of water.

Food Aversions:

Meat.  Although I did eat a little this week.  I also really don't want savory things.  Give me salad, fruit, desserts, yogurt, etc.

What I Miss:


Yup, again. 

What I Am Looking Forward To:

Knowing the gender!!!


Hm...I can't really think of any.  I feel like this happens a lot more the further along you get.

Pregnancy Symptoms:

The heartburn has begun.

But thankfully, a friend recommended these to me.  SO much better than normal Tums.
2 Weeks!

I go back and forth on this one.  Most days I really think this is a boy, because I have a boy and it's just normal for me to think that way.  I often refer to the baby as a "he" or "him."  But every so often I think it could be a girl.
Weight Gain:
Wavering between 7 and 8 pounds gained.  Again, I'll take it.  I've also done my pregnancy work out video (which is equal parts awesome and cheesy) this week several times.
