How Far Along: 18 weeks yesterday - I know these aren't the highest quality pictures, but real life is this. There is no time to set up a tripod and try to be official about it with a toddler running around, but I do work out each day so why not snap a pic then?! Also - yes, I missed last week - life.
Size of Baby: Sweet Potato
Weight Gain: 6 pounds
Stretch Marks: Not yet - hopefully not ever
Maternity Clothes: I am pretty much just wearing maternity - some of my stretchy pants are still super comfy so I wear those, too.
Gender: CT, Hubby, and I went to a 4D ultrasound and found out the gender as a family. We are keeping it a secret until March 12th when we will announce it to our close family and friends at a little party at our house.
Movement: Feeling little flutters- like butterfly wings - sometimes some tossing/turning
Sleep: This past weekend we got CT's big boy bed set up and it made sleep soooo much better for all of us. He slept all night in his bed and I slept through the night, too!
Missing: Wine. Last week I was in Chicago for work and I really missed out on trying some of the local brews and craft beers, but it's worth it!
Loving: The fact that we have a little special secret between the 4 of us right now.
Craving: Lemon in my water. Fruit.
Feeling: Finally back to myself! I am excited about meal prep and cooking and all the things I love and that just makes my heart happy. Also loving getting outside for some runs with CT. Now that I feel good, I've been running with the stroller again.
Looking Forward: Spending as much one on one time with CT as possible. Date nights with my husband. A family vacation to the beach over spring break. And our Gender Reveal on 3/12.
Best Moment(s): I was out of town most of last week for work so I missed CT, but it was really nice to come home and slip into bed beside him Saturday night. When he woke up Sunday morning it was a nice surprise that I was home.
