*18 weeks*

How many weeks? I am 18 weeks today!

How big is baby?  Head to rump he is 5 and a 1/2 inches long and about 7 ounces. About the size of a sweet potato. Which IMO is an ugly thing to compare a baby to.

How are you feeling today? Not feeling to bad. I am still nauseous in the morning time and do I have to even tell about the migraines anymore? I am sick of having them you are sick of hearing about them! I did buy some preggie pops yesterday for my upset tummy and they seem to work pretty good.
New Symptoms? Last night I had some strong Braxton Hicks contractions for the first time this pregnancy. I was so uncomfortable!Thank God they only last a little while. With both pregnancies they have been intense for me. I hope that doesn't mean I will have another intense long labor.

Milestones? Of course finding out Pumpkin is a boy!!! I am also happy to reach 18 weeks. I know this is the time where the babies become more active and you can also better feel that activity. I am hoping for a strong kick soon!

Appointments? My next appointment isn't until June 6th. That one is just an OB check up.

Positive thing about this pregnancy? I am so blessed to have another sweet baby boy!

Baby names? I like Cole, Blake and Parker. I have to start hitting my baby name book again now that there are only half as many names to go through.

Purchases? So far animal plates, a stuffed lamb, duckie pjs, a box of diapers and baby wash. I obviously have a ton of brand new stuff already. Now to add on to that I got two outfits from Carter's, a night time baby wash, and some wall decorations for the baby's room. I have my big purchases done except a crib. We were going to order one right before I went into labor. We were using a bassinet for Gavin anyways so I bought myself a little more time to look around. Well then I went into early labor, lived in the NICU, and then tried to just cherish him while he was home. Soon we are taking a trip to buy buy baby which is a bit of a drive because I think I found the crib I want there.

I am 17 weeks and 4 days pregnant in these pictures :)


  1. You look good.Wait till he starts kicking. At first with me it was wow this is awsome then by the end I was saying Jack go to sleep. Jack kicked all night long and went to sleep at 6 in the morning till 2 or 3 in the afternoon.That never changed even after he was born.

  2. Thanks Michelle. It was that way with Gavin too. He would kick me all night my bf would sleep on the couch a lot because I was so restless. Every time I changed positions and finally get comfy he would kick me on that side so hard. He was bossy even in the womb. I would do anything to feel his kicks again.
