Pregnancy This Week
How Far Along: 18 weeks, (almost 19 at this point)...missed posting about week 17
Size of Baby: 5 1/2 inches long, about the size of a sweet potato
Weight Gain: I'm guessing about 5lbs now...though it may be a whole different story after Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow! :)
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but baby has made his/her presence known literally in the last 48 hours. I went from barely a bump to an actual baby bump pretty much overnight! Love it!
Gender: We find out next week!
Movement: Baby likes its space. The kicks are usually to protest an invading waist band, seat belt, big brother on mommy's lap, or even me just yawning! Baby already knows that to survive in this crazy family he/she will have to claim some territory:)
Cravings: Nothing really this week...haven't really had a big appetite in general lately.
Symptoms: Besides the newly popped baby bump, nothing really which has been very nice.
Best Moments of the Week: I love being back here in Virginia with family all around. Being home with all three of our kids has made us feel so full and rich. We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to be at home for Thanksgiving. I also have to say I'm pretty excited that this is the last week this little one will be referred to as him/her or he/she. So excited to call this baby by name!
