Week 18

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 18 weeks

Baby Size: About the size of a sweet potato

Total weight gain: I'm not sure! We'll find out Thursday. I'm guessing maybe about 3 pounds?!

Maternity clothes? Still none!

Stretch marks? Not yet!

Sleep:  Pretty good. I'm trying to wean myself from sleeping on my stomach and trying to make myself go back to sleeping on my side. It's really hard though!

Best moment this week:  Finally having the energy to get our house cleaned and decorated for the holiday season!

Miss Anything? Just having more energy to do stuff!

Movement: Every now and then I feel like I feel a few flutters but I'm not sure.  Everyone keeps saying that when they start moving I'll know for certain so who knows if what I think I'm feeling is what I actually am feeling.

Food cravings: Noting particularly. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nah. (thank you Jesus!)

Gender:  I think BOY! We find out on Thursday!

Labor Signs:  None

Symptoms: Heartburn! My word this baby better have lots of hair when he/she comes out! haha

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Mood: Excited!

Looking forward to: Finding out what Baby Holt is on Thursday and then telling everyone at the gender reveal party!


  1. I, for one, didn't know for certain until our little man drop kicked my kidney (or some other painful organ). I THOUGHT I had been feeling him for a couple of weeks, but I just didn't know for sure either!

  2. Yea! Can't wait to find out what you're having! We found out last week we're having a boy and that was exactly what I thought we were having. I can't believe you're still in regular clothes you lucky lady! I was way too uncomfortable at week 12 for my regular jeans.


Hearing from you ladies always make my day, so please let me know you stopped by!
