How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain: -10lbs. at my appointment last week so I am -7 from my pre pregnancy weight. I have a feeling that I will see a decent gain at my appointment next week.
Maternity clothes? Yes please
Sleep: Crazy sleeping pattern, that's for sure. Plus my butt muscles hurt (ache like I worked out) depending on what side I sleep on so I flip over a million times a night.
Best moment this week: Love bug kicked me hard the other night. It was so cool!
Food Cravings/Aversions: guacamole (not spicy)
Gender: I think it is a girl. We are finding out on Valentine's day, as long as Love Bug cooperates. As the anatomy scan approaches, a few people have made comments to me about being excited about finding out the sex and counting down the days to finding out the sex. I appreciate their excitement, I really do and I want to know too...however, my number one priority is Love Bug's health. The sex is the last thing they are looking for at this next ultrasound. There is a laundry list of defects and conditions that could effect the quality of Love Bug's life or determine whether he/she has a life at all that are the reason for this ultrasound. I just wanted to remind everyone what is important here.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Nothing.
Weekly Wisdom: Don't eat right before bed!
Milestones: First real kicks on Sunday, February 6th.
