18 Weeks

How far along:  18 weeks.
Gender: The suspense is pretty much killing me at this point.
Belly button in or out:  Still half and half.
Maternity clothes:  Sweatpants + leggings have definitely been my friends! ;)
Stretch marks:  Nothing yet.
Sleep:  Not bad, just the usual Ellie early morning wake-up calls.
Best moment of the week:  It was a pretty quiet week, so just enjoying this time with my big girl who seems to be growing by the second!  I can't even imagine how big she will seem once the baby is here.
Worst moment of the week:  Realizing how horrible this sweater looks and how it should probably end up in the trash?  Kidding, kind of.  Really there's not much I can complain about right now - we're living a pretty good life over here. :)
Miss anything:  I've already found myself getting short of breath from doing pretty much nothing.  Seems way too early for all that.
Movement:  Slowly feeling more and more.  Felt some more defined movements (knees or elbows possibly?), not just quick kicks!
Cravings:  Adding ice water + coffee this week.  Coffee not because of the taste but because the one cup a day allowance disappears out of my cup way too quickly.
Queasy or sick:  Had the tiniest hint of heartburn this week, something I haven't experienced since I was pregnant with Ellie.  Just a preview of what's to come in the upcoming months I'm sure!
Looking forward to:  Still have to say finding out the gender.  We're picking out paint for Ellie's room and I almost forgot we'll have two rooms to decorate so soon!! :)
