Bumpdate: 18 weeks

How Far Along: 18 Weeks

Size of the baby: a mango (about 6 in crown to rump, .5 lb)

Total Weight Gain: we shall see this coming Friday, I might not look at the scale!

Maternity Clothes: I have officially grown out of my normal pants and have moved on to a few maternity pants - jeans and capris. Also, buying up comfy maternity tops that will last me a while!

Gender: Still not finding out & even more excited!

Movement: YES! I started feeling weird "twinges" during the 16th week, but definitely began feeling movement last week and this week. About an hour ago Greg actually felt the baby kick for the first time - a precious moment for us both! A lot of people described it as "flutters" ... but to me the movement is more like little kernels of popcorn popping in my belly.

Sleep: Sleeping is getting a bit uncomfortable because I'm really trying to stay on my side but wake up on my back. My hips are starting to hurt when I sleep, not a lot of pleasant journeys through dreamland these days.

What I miss: Going out for a good, long run.

Symptoms: I'm down to needing zofran a lot less! Some days I only take half and some days none - but others I take one, just depends. Still pretty tired at the end of the day with leg aches. But, for the most part
