18 Weeks

What's Happening with Peanut?
  • Peanut is about 5.5 inches long and weighs around 7 ounces.
  • Peanut is busy flexing his arms/legs - which Mama is beginning to feel.
  • If Peanut is a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If Peanut is a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, although he may hide them during an ultrasound.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 12 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? Yes - almost exclusively. Motherhood Maternity is now my new favorite store.
  • Best moment this week: Finding lots of cute maternity clothes at Motherhood Maternity. It is amazing how much better I feel now that I am comfortable.
  • Food cravings: Bagels
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • What I miss: Having a stronger bladder. This week it seems if I even think about water I need to visit the restroom.
  • What I am looking forward to: Finding out what Peanut is at our ultrasound on Thursday.

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy is now finished with the State Patrol office and can now devote all of his work time to the new elementary school he is building.
  • Daddy has to open his office this week -- which means he is waking up (well, technically Mama is waking him up) at 4:30 a.m.
  • Daddy loves to rub Mama's tummy and talk to Peanut while they are drifting off to sleep.
