baby bump: week 18


how far along: 18 weeks

baby size: a bell pepper! 5 1/2 inches long & about 7 ounces

total weight gain / loss: 0; i'm losing it while baby is gaining it!

maternity clothes: still love my gap maternity jeans & pre-pregnancy tops...
but i can't wait for spring! dresses & sandals are going to be my best friends!

stretch marks: not yet.

sleep: still having a really hard time getting comfortable. :(

best moment this week: when hubs gave me a much needed foot massage.
he's pretty much the best in the entire universe.

miss anything? diet coke. but i'm better for not having it! go kristin!

movement: i've only felt cupcake once this week; not as much as last.
i still can't wait for hubs to be able to feel baby from the outside!

food cravings: grilled cheese... but a fancy one.
a thick artisan bread with smoky mozzarella, pesto, tomatoes & prosciutto.
i've been dreaming about this grilled cheese for a week!
luckily, i'm making fresh mozzarella in my culinary lab this week.

have you started to show yet? my bestie said i had some serious baby bump action 
going on, but i still just feel a little pudgy. mama needs to pop more!

gender: still waiting to find out on 2/3 {hopefully}!
also, still feeling like it's a boy!

labor signs: no

belly button in or out? i'm still an innie!

wedding rings on or off? on

happy or moody most of the time: happy, for suresies.
i did have a mini-meltdown at lunch the other day when
i started thinking about things i may miss when i'm not with the baby.
ugh. mommy guilt already!

looking forward to: seeing my little cupcake on the 3rd! it's been too long!

until next time,
dowlings out!
