Well I've made it to 18 weeks..or 4 1/2 months!! I feel like I'm really starting to show now! Here are a few things y'all might want to know....
Food Cravings : about the same..fruits, water, meat (steak), milk, and Milky Way candy bars!
Aversions : chocolate ice cream, bananas, meatloaf
Next dr appt. : January 7th..it will be with my new doctor..so I'm excited to see how things go! Plus we'll probably find out the baby's sex then!!! EXCITING!!
Sleep : SO much better..I can't even tell you guys how much better I sleep now than I did a couple weeks ago!
Movements : I 'think' I've started to feel some little kicks for the first time! Sometimes I don't know if its just my stomach rumbling..but the first time it happened it felt like popcorn popping! Looking forward to feeling those movements more often..it seems like such a relief to finally feel 'something'! What a blessing..on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day..I felt what I think were pretty distinct movements!!
Clothes : For my bday and Christmas, I've received alot of maternity clothes. Jeans, sweaters, shirts, dresses, skirts..you name it! I'm SO happy to finally have some clothes that feels like I have some room in! I can't wait to wear my new "Baby Love" shirt today!! I'll be sure to take some pics of me in it..its adorable! Oh and my mom and dad bought the baby a cute little onesie for Christmas!!! The first gift for baby! And did I mention..its pink?! Yes..we are hoping for a little girl..though it doesn't matter either way..as long as he/she is healthy!
Other Noteables : Even though its far from it..I've been able to tell a difference in my belly button! Looks like its slowly but surely on its way out!
