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.
