18 weeks.

Baby #2-18 weeks

I think I look double the size in the second picture compared to picture #1.
This is my hoe-down dress.

How Far Along: 18 weeks! (This is going by so fast!)

Size of baby: The baby is the size of a sweet potato! It measures in at 5.6 inches long and weighs about 6.7 ounces. (Except I think our baby is bigger than this. Why? Just a feeling.)

Weight Gain: 5 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: Yes. Pants. I am wearing a mix of maternity and non maternity tops. What ever is long enough. My go to outfit is a pair of leggings and tunic!

Gender: We are not going to find out! I go back and forth on what I think it is. Everything about this pregnancy is the opposite of my pregnancy with Lucy which makes me think boy but the baby's heart beat is really high, which makes me think girl. Does it matter? Not at all! We are just happy to have this baby!

Movement: At 17 weeks I officially felt the baby kick. At 17 1/2 weeks Jonathan was able to feel the baby kick! That's another reason I think this baby is huge! Huge or Hyper! I didn't feel Lucy until 19-20 weeks.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I love Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Sandwiches. Mustard. Tuna Fish Sandwiches but I try to limit myself to one a week.

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.

Sleep: I have no trouble going to sleep at night but between 1:30-4 I am wide awake! Last night I woke up and I was wide awake. I am glad I was awake because Baby Bost was up as well and I got to feel he/she kick for at least an hour!

Symptoms: I've felt good this past week.

Best Moment of the Week: Feeling the baby move!

What I look forward to:  My parents come into town today! Christmas Eve at my house tomorrow with Family! Christmas morning with my baby girl and husband! Christmas Dinner with my parents and sisters! Next week seeing Jonathan's family! ( I wrote this yesterday so its a little behind)

Big Sister Moment: Lucy has been lifting up my shirt to hug, kiss and talk to the baby. I think she is getting excited about being a big sister!

Lucy's Weekly Pictures

Terrible picture of me but sweet of Lucy hugging the baby!
