Hi Everyone! I figured it’s about time for an update. Aaron and I found out the gender of our little one last Friday- WE ARE SO EXCITED!!!! Don’t worry, I’ll share the news but not until after I make the big reveal to our family- We are telling them on Thanksgiving. I wanted to say thanks for all the messages, phone calls, gifts and texts that were sent our way after we sent out the baby announcement. Aaron and I are so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people- thank you so much for thinking of us!! Here is the most recent picture of our little peanut- we have a healthy happy baby- heart rate of 152, weighing in at exactly half a pound- so what do you think? Girl or Boy? 😉
How far along: 18 weeks + 5 days (you are the size of a mango)
Total weight gain: +9.2 lbs
Maternity clothes: Yep! I finally got used to them. At first it felt like I was wearing sweatpants all the time and I felt uncomfortable- but now I’m loving them!!
Mood: Really excited- like more than my body can handle! It’s insane!
Sleep: at least 8 hours every night- sometimes more.
Best moment of this week: Finding out the gender!! It was such a fun appointment 🙂
Miss anything: Today I miss coffee- the cats decided to throw a party last night and I didn’t sleep very well.
Movement: Not yet! But the doctor says any day now- I thought I felt something a couple of weeks ago but I haven’t felt it again so I think I was wrong about it being the baby.
Food cravings: Burgers!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, not at all!
Have you started to show yet: yep
Gender: This will be my next post- promise!!
Labor signs: nope.
Belly button in or out: in.
Wedding rings on or off: on.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Going home in just two short days- I get to see my little niece again and spend some much needed time with my family.
Other news/stories: No other news at the moment except that Thanksgiving is going to be a HUGE celebration- and I can’t wait to spend it with my family 🙂
