18 weeks

Maternity clothes: This, or Nick's clothes.

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: Lovin' every minute of it.

Best moment this week: Friday at 5:00. I'm just so not into work.

Movement: Here and there...

Food cravings: Mac & cheese, pickles, and butter. Butter! I know! But I can't resist making toast or a bagel and LOADING that bad boy up with butter.

Gender: Still don't know...

What I miss: Having more than 4 options of outfits for work to choose from.

What I am looking forward to: When Nick can feel the kicks too.

What I have learned: I now realize how easy it is to freak out over nothing! When I realized I hadn't felt any movement in a couple days it was very easy to imagine all sorts of things that could be wrong, and then it was very easy to find more symptoms of things going wrong...

Milestones: I think I started getting Braxton Hicks contractions today. Them shits hurt.

16 weeks

Maternity clothes: Say hello to the FULL BELLY coverage pants. Like buttah.

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: OMG Snoogle pillow = Best. Sleep. Ever.
Best moment this week: My doctor's appt. First the nurse tells me I haven't gained ANY weight this past month. Then, as we're listening to the heartbeat, I hear: whoosh whoosh whoosh whoosh whoosh THUD whoosh whoosh. The nurse says "I heard a kick..." I say, "That IS what that was feeling! I didn't know for sure!"

Movement: YAY! Thanks for kicking the microphone, sweet pea!

Food cravings/aversions: STILL with the chicken pot pies. Also mac & cheese, and pickles. Fried pickles... Yum.

Gender: GAH I don't know.

What I miss: NOT being treated like a human incubator. I was acutally called "the oven".

What I am looking forward to: Kicks vs. flutters. I'm sure I will regret saying this.

What I have learned: Lesson not completely learned yet, but I'm trying to get better at letting people's stupid comments roll off my back.

Milestones: Flutters...
