18 weeks!

About the Mama...
  • My energy level was up until a few days ago, then I think I got smoked with allergies a little early.
  •  I CAN NOT BREATH out of my nose AT ALL!!! (See picture below, constant running!)
  • My baby belly is getting bigger day by day.
  • I am wearing all maternity clothes now, and slowly having to buy new.
  • I think that I am feeling little kicks here and there, which is amazing, I am really excited for them to get stronger over the next few weeks.
  • My ankles aren't swollen yet and I can still wear my weddng band, so that is good.
  • The heartburn continues to exist, but I can control it with Pepcid and Tums.
  • I am constinately thirsty, so I am drinking a ton throughout the day, making me have to use the bathroom about 10 minutes or so...UHG!
  • Love'n fruit roll-ups right now and cheese:)
About the baby...

  • Fingerprints now give my baby a unique identity.
  • Cartilage has turned into bone.
  • The umbilical cord is strengthening and thickening.
  • His/Her ears have settled into their final position.
  • He or she is about 6 inches long, head to rump and weighs about 7 oz, the size of a banana.
  • Now the real question...
    In less the 10 days we have our ultrasound!!!
    What do you think?
    A Boy or a Girl?
    Leave a comment with your guess!  I am excited to see what you all think!
    I know what I think, but I'm not telling...again.
    The answer will find itself on my blog on the NIGHT of March 28th, we can't wait!
    (Even for you Grandma's and Grandpa's)
    So you better check!
