18 Week Update

18 Week Update

18 week baby chalkboard update

How far along? 18 weeks

Baby Size: Bell Pepper (I am getting my size from the Baby Center App)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained 3 pounds (at the last doctors appointment possibly 1-2 more).

Maternity clothes: Before my doctors appointment I headed to the maternity store because I was in desperate need of new bras! I ended up getting 2 bras, 2 pairs of pants, and a tank top.  I haven’t had to wear anything except the bras yet though.

Sorry these are not glamour shots. After working all day with first graders it is all I can do to get Mr. Blue Eyes to take the picture.

Stretch Marks: I don’t have any yet, well except the ones that I had prior to Baby Blue Eyes :).

Sleep: Sleep has been good…lots of crazy dreams.  I have been getting practice getting up in the middle of the night thanks to my current Baby Blue (Roo has been getting us up at all hours of the night to take her  to the bathroom, pull a tick off her, clean up throw up… ewwww).  She must know that there is a new Baby Blue Eyes in town and wants to help get us ready!

Best Moment of the Week: Valentines dinner with Mr. Blue Eyes on the rooftop at Whiskey Bravo, beautiful!

Miss Anything: I have been good this week and not missing anything!

Movement: Still waiting to feel the “butterfly wings”.

Food Cravings: Chips and salsa and the Thai Chicken Salad from Panera (unbelievable)

Symptoms: Feeling great.  Still continuing with my Barre3 workouts and walks with the Blue Eyed gang. 

Anything make you queasy or sick? Hmm… dinner last night didn’t sound appealing but really it is a game time decision.

Have you started to show yet? Some of my family that I saw this weekend said that I popped.  I still think that it depends on the time of night and what I am wearing.

Gender predictions? Still thinking girl.  Mr. Blue Eyes thinks it’s a boy.

Labor Signs: No

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding ring on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time? Feeling happy especially with Monday off this week for Presidents Day!

Looking forward to: Shopping for the baby and the nursery!

Some of you may have noticed that this Blue Eyed blog looks a little different.  Well, my web designer (Mr. Blue Eyes) was kind enough at my request (literally begging for months) to spruce it up a bit. It is not completely done we are still waiting on an official logo and then we will complete the changes.  However, I am excited to announce that you can FINALLY sign up to receive email updates! Whoo Hoo! So if you want to receive a Blue Eyed email every once in awhile make sure that you sign up! 

Enjoy your Friday and weekend!

How is the weather looking where you are? Ours is looking warm but rainy!

    Love these updates and getting to be part if your pregnancy!

    PS-the books and such say to buy nursing bras right away so you can use them after baby. That is a load of crap because your boobs will just about explode after you have the baby and your milk comes in and you will then have to buy bras from the lactation consultant….well at least I “knew” someone that happened to 😉

      Thanks Chelsie! It is fun getting to share the news with all my family and friends. Yes, this bra situation is really a problem!
