Week 18

Thank you for your comments on the furniture in my last post.  I'm leaning towards the modern set today, but who knows what I'll think tomorrow.  Ahh hormones!  Please vote on the baby's gender in the poll on the right sidebar if you haven't already.

How Far Along: 19 weeks today, but I'm recapping week 18

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 3lbs at my last appointment.  I'm sure Tuesday's appointment will show a healthy gain...and by healthy I mean huge.

Maternity Clothes: I love my Old Navy maternity jeans.  If you have suggestions for other maternity clothes, please let me know.  The work pants I ordered from Gap last week were a huge no-go.

Gender: Tuesday can't come fast enough...

Movement: More and more!  Baby seems to have a dance party at night when I'm laying in bed and after I eat.

Sleep: No complaints.

What I miss: Maybe having clothes (pants, specifically) fit me.  I'm not complaining at all as it is obviously for a very great cause but I'm in between regular/maternity pants.  I have a Bella Band that is helping me through the transition.  But I did walk down an entire hallway at work earlier this week with the Bella Band (unbeknownst to me) up at my waist and my pants undone.  You're welcome for the show, hallway-goers.  At least I learned my lesson to readjust my clothing prior to moving away from the privacy of my desk.

Cravings: Peppermint Ice Cream.  Tis the season!

Symptoms: None, still feeling great.

Best Moment this week: Scarfing down an entire Chick-Fil-A chicken biscuit breakfast in 2 minutes flat.  Well, maybe that wasn't my finest moment, come to think of it.  But it was pretty impressive.

Oh my word, the Bella Band moment had me cracking up! I'm not that far along yet to need one, but I've heard similar stories :-)

I did all of my maternity wardrobe shopping online in the States (we're currently living in New Zealand) and my sister is bringing them all with her when she flies in tomorrow. I'm so excited to try everything out. I'll let you know if anything in particular stands out (got several things from Old Navy).

I had a pair of Motherhood Maternity skinny jeans that I LOVED. Like loved so much that I sometimes still rock them. Eight months post partum. No shame.. ;)

I have a love/hate relationship with my Bella Band too! It's great when it's situated right, but every time I stand up or move it has to be readjusted.

Very cute blog, it'll be fun to follow along as I'm just a few weeks behind (I'm due July 9th). Congrats too, by the way, little girls are soooo much fun!
