Baby Brother - 18 Weeks

Size of the Baby: Sweet Potato
Total Weight Loss/Gain: -0.6 pounds (never fear - I look like I've gained 15...this is not a pretty pregnancy!)
Maternity Clothes: I'm in them!
Gender: Another boy!
Movement: Yes! I felt a few real kicks on Friday night while I was in bed. Sunday afternoon at the lake he had the hiccups. So funny! I loved when James got them!
Cravings: I finally feel SO MUCH better. I'm not craving anything (I think I'm almost out of the potato soup stage!).
Symptoms: The nausea is almost totally gone, but it's been replaced by those mean, second trimester headaches. (On a positive note, I made spaghetti tonight and didn't gag or feel nauseated while browning the ground beef or eating. Hallelujah!)
Sleep: Still ok. I'm getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but I've been going back to sleep. I'm a tummy sleeper and I've really had to make an effort to stay on my side. I don't sleep well without my body pillow.
What I Miss: Hmm...not much. (I've cut back to a cup of coffee and a Diet Coke a day. Don't knock it if you disagree. You're not my doctor.)
Best Moment This Week: Sweet little kicks!
