How far along? 18 weeks today!
Total weight gain/loss: Who knows? I gained probably more than average the first two months because I quit my weekend job and took up laying on the couch. I would say altogether, I've gained about 15 pounds.
How big is the baby? According to my phone Button is approximately 5 inches long and weighs about 5.3 ounces.
Maternity clothes? Oh gawd. I think maternity clothes are a big waste of money. I bought two pairs of jeans after I found out I was pregnant that are a size bigger than normal. They still fit without my belly band (for now). Although sometimes I unbutton them when I'm sitting at my desk. Especially right after lunch. I've bought a couple of shirts. I bought a couple pairs of yoga pants. A girl at work gave me a couple pairs of pants and a couple shirts. I can pretty much wear whatever to work, so I am going to.
Sleep: Well, I think I'm over the being exhausted all of the time. But at night, I wake up many times to pee. The dogs look at me like I'm nuts.
Best moment this week: Saturday afternoon nap.
Movement: I feel little flutters every now and then. It mostly happens while I am at work so I'm guessing Button doesn't like it here either.
Food cravings: In no particular order and not mixed together: hash brown casserole, Kit Kats, pickles, cookies, any sweets.
Gender: Don't know. Should find out the 22nd but I think it's a girl.
Labor Signs: Oh good gawd no.
Belly Button in or out? In, gross.
Stretch marks? On my boobaculs.
What I miss: Cigarettes and booze.
What I am looking forward to: My next doctors appointment and finding out if Button is a girl or boy.
Weekly Wisdom: Hmmm, I only feel dumber lately, not smarter.
Milestones: I wore a maternity shirt (and pants) for the first time to Matt's Christmas party on Saturday.
Current Annoyance: People that think it is cool to touch my stomach. I've snapped twice about that. (Told ya I would). Also, people who put their two cents in on stuff that's none of their business. For example, drugs vs. no drugs during labor and breastfeeding vs. formula.
Hope you all have a lovely week.
