18 Weeks

I'm 18 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 18 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby O is the size of a bell pepper!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: ? I'm trying to avoid the scale :)

Maternity Clothes: Oh, yes!

Gender: Can't wait to find out! We go to the doctor the Wednesday before Thanksgiving to find out. I am so excited because Mickey and Mackaylan are going to be able to go with me!

Movement: Pretty sure I have felt the baby "flutter" a few times. I can't wait until movement is more noticeable and consistent.

Sleep: I still sleep pretty good, but do have to get up to go to the restroom quite a few times!

What I miss: Nothing! We have been praying for this baby for so long I feel nothing but blessed!

Cravings: I crave different things at different times.

Symptons: I have been an emotional wreck with this baby. Life is kind of stressful right now anyway with all that I have on my plate, so a few good cries a week are necessary! LOL

Best moment this week: Talking with Mackaylan about the new baby. She loves to suggest names and is quick to let me know that she is going to help out with everything- except the "poopy diapers." Tonight she decided that was going to be Mickey's job because he likes getting dirty, and that definitely sounds alright to me!

Wow girl! you are growing like crazy! I so miss the days y'all lived on racetrack road and i could just drive on over and get your famous choc chip cookies and gossip! sooo im pretty sure im convinced that your having a boy! Y'all need a boy in that family to make it complete! I cant wait to find out! No name for my niece yet. she's due in like little over 2.5 months! CRAZY! I got her a time out bench because i know she'll be BAD! Thats funny MAC wants to help but not with the poopy diapers! I'm voting for a Mickey Jr.... that's just my thoughts on this baby #2! Glad your feeling well despite emotional mess! I'm praying for y'all including Mickey , 2 women in one house. I dont know how my dad did it all these years with even 4 women! whew. Hope you have a good Monday evening!

You look fantastic, Lana! B and I were just talking about y'all and wondering when you'd know Baby O's gender. What perfect timing - you'll have SO much to be thankful for after a peek at your little one. Hope you're feeling great!
