Pregnancy: 18 weeks

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.
