How far along: 18 weeks
Size of baby: The size of a heirloom tomato
Maternity clothes: I've been wearing some maternity jeans, but mostly just my normal clothes.
Gender: WE KNOW! I have a whole fun post about our happy appointment, but I'm not sharing the gender till this weekend. Olivia and I fly out to Nebraska tomorrow to celebrate Christmas with Andrew's side of the family, so we are keeping it a secret till we can tell them then! The sweet baby was healthy and beautiful, and I loved every second of the ultrasound.
Movement: I feel the baby every day. Sometimes I'm not sure if it is actual movement, but there are days I definitely feel it!
Sleep: Wonderful. I am a stomach sleeper, and have still been sleeping on my stomach! We will see how much longer I have:) I take a hot bath and drink decaf hot tea with honey before bed every night. I swear it is my magic potion for a good night's sleep!
Symptoms: I have only thrown up 4 out of the 7 mornings this week. I have felt SO much better this week, and am off Zofran! My eating is back to normal, and I feel hungry all the time.
What I miss: Nothing. I am entering the fun part of pregnancy and am enjoying every day.
Cravings: Pepsi! I drank no caffeine when I was pregnant with Olivia, I was such a "purist". But this pregnancy I not only crave it, but it settles an upset stomach almost immediately. I have been known to drink a Pepsi at 9 in the morning so I don't have to throw up:) Whatever it takes! I do usually limit it to 1 a day.
Food Aversions: I still have a really hard time eating spaghetti/red sauce/Italian food and peanut butter.
Best moment this week: Finding out our baby is healthy and the gender!
What I'm looking forward to: Sharing the gender with all our friends and family! Everyone is definitely anxious and excited to know :)
