Itty Bitty Update - 4/7/09

How far along? 18 weeks, 4 days

Total weight gain/loss: Don't have a clue; we have never owned a scale. I'll know after my appt. next Wednesday.

Maternity clothes? Some tops. I feel like my rib cage is expanding. Even my bras feel too tight across the back. Boo.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep: Only with the help of Ambien, several times a week, per Dr. Morgan's orders.

Best moment this week: Cute Pottery Barn Kinds bedding is on major clearance. If Itty Bitty is a girl, I've got my eye on a couple things.

Movement: Like Seth, Ityt Bitty is most active at night, and I've mostly felt movement in the lower left quadrant.

Food cravings: Today, it was a Burger King Whopper. Oh, it was sooooo good. Yesterday, after a tempting commercial, it was a Dairy Queen truffle Blizzard, but I haven't given in to that one yet.

Gender: Gut still says girl. Only 7 days til we know.

Labor Signs: None. When I was being monitored at the hospital on Friday (more on that later), I wasn't having any contractions and the fetal movement was perfect. Heart rate was in the high 150s.

Belly Button in or out? In, but it's starting to flatten out a bit.

What I miss: My laptop. Oh, wait, this is baby-related. Um, well, I'm almost to the point where belly sleeping isn't possible. That will be a sad day.

What I am looking forward to: Out ultrasound on the 15th.

Weekly Wisdom: back up photos of children and life in general weekly onto a flash drive or other photo storage website.

Milestones: First visit to Labor & Delivery.

You just made my day by saying that you still take Ambien to sleep - while pregnant! I was unsure if I'd be able to (one day)!! Awesome news!

Itty Bitty IS a girl...I can feel it!!! =)
And normally I would hate someone in like you- on their second pregnancy with no strecth marks-, but given the fact that it's YOU...I will let this one go =)
