Bumpdate #3: 18 Weeks!
Baby is about the size of a bell pepper.
How far along: 18 weeks
Weight Gain: About 5 pounds
Maternity clothes: Maternity leggings and bellaband. Regular winter clothes are working well: lots of sweaters and sweater dresses. Not looking forward to having to get a new winter coat in a few months.
Stretch marks: Belly balm every day.
Belly button: Wider and shallower. It's freaking me out.
Wedding ring: On
Movement: Tiny taps every once in a while.
Sleep: Waking up at 5 am most mornings and wondering if the time is indicative of a future feeding time when the baby is out in the world. Sleeping pretty well though!
Cravings: No cravings this week.
Feeling: Hungry all the time. More and more excited to meet the baby. Still feels unreal that there is a little person in there!
Best moments this week:
1. Snowstorm on Tuesday. This baby is going to love snow I just know it.
2. Long walks on sunny days now that I have more energy. I'm trying to walk/hike every day that the weather allows!
