So. Whoops?

17 Weeks

My 17 week update is that I’m officially grossed out by how big my arm looks.

18 Weeks

How far along?: 18w, 4d
Baby is the size of a: Large Bell Pepper (about 6″ long)
The Bump: Getting bigger … and bigger (and bigger … and rounder)
Symptoms: Carpal tunnel. Lower back pain. And good gracious I’m so hungry.
Food Cravings: More of the same. Carbs. Bagels. Pasta. Mac and cheese (its own special breed of pasta). Basically nothing healthy.
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Sense of smell has gone into crazy crazy overdrive.
Sleep: Not so great. Waking up 5-6 times a night to pee. Tossing and turning.
What I miss: Good sleep, eating super healthy (and wanting and liking that healthy food), working out, non-maternity clothes, BEER. Oh. And wine.
Weddings Rings On or Off: On
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Yep … not telling ;)
Gender Prediction: I’m pretty certain she’s a she
Movement: Little flutters here and there, picking up in frequency
Maternity Clothes: Loving my trusty Old Navy maternity jeans. Working in some non-maternity tops … namely the Lilly Pulitzer Joycee tunic (I’ve got 2, and they’re SO comfy), and the Holmes top (pictured in my 18 week pic).  Wearing a lot of sweaters and scarves.
Best Moment of the Week: Thanksgiving! We loved spending time with family. OH! And, we got word that the lot for our new house (pictured below in all its glory) has been cleared and they are starting to put up the walls THIS WEEK!
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Finding out if Baby Rod is a he or a she this week!

It may not look like much, but this land is OURS!


Have a great week!
