18 weeks!

I can't decide if this pregnancy is getting slower or faster. In a way, I feel like the weeks are flying by; but the days are dragging. If that makes any sense.

Anyway, I'm 18 weeks today & in a mere two weeks I'll be halfway done!

Looking at my picture this week, I definitely feel like I've grown in the last two weeks. I'm hoping I'm starting to actually look pregnant now. My co-workers have commented that I definitely look pregnant, but I'll let you judge as well :)

This week has been extremely uneventful, so I will just jump into the survey!

How far along?: 18 weeks
How big is baby?: The size of a sweet potato!
Weight gain?: I don't own a scale & don't want to because I'm scared. I'm hoping it's around 10-11ish pounds? ::dies::
Stretch marks?: It's become routine for me to do a stretchie check every morning & I freak myself out because I always think the lines I get from sleeping are stretch marks. So far everything has been a false alarm. Thank goodness!
Maternity clothes: I'm rotating between my only 2 pairs of maternity pants. It needs to get warm like, now, so I can wear my maternity capris & sun dresses. I'm currently in LOVE with the Liz Lange (sp?) maternity tanks from Target. They are very fitted & very long. Besides that, I'm in regular shirts.
Sleep?: I love it. I'm sleeping great ::knocks on wood:: But I have a hell of a time getting up in the morning. It's bad. I feel like a teenager again.
Best moment this week?: feeling baby girl movin' around in my tummy ;)
Food cravings?: still on the spicy/mexican/cheesy kick but I'm limiting myself to that type of food so I don't turn into a whale.
Gender?: Sweet baby GIRL
Movement?: YES! FINALLY! I'm feeling her about every other day. Sometimes it's little jabs & pokes & sometimes it's the feeling that there's a little fish swimming in there. She got angry this morning when I started to wake up. She's obv. not a morning girl like her momma.
What I miss?: my back not constantly hurting, not peeing every 10 minutes & wine. still.
Belly Button?: It's in but stretching & getting wider. It's so ugly. I showed hubby the other night & he started laughing. Real mature.
What I'm looking forward to?:Seeing my best friend & her baby girl this week! Hitting the 20 wk mark & getting the anatomy scan.
Milestone?: looking pregnant :)
