How far along: 18 weeks!

Weight gain/loss: Last we checked it was about 5-7 pounds. Not too shabby!

Body changes: The ever-growing belly and girls! Oh, and I'm getting more heartburn these days. Yay.
Sooner baby belly! 
Taken Saturday, so it's not exactly 18 weeks...but pretty close.

Gender: We find out on the 17th!! {Vote what you think via the poll up on the right side of the page!}

Movement: I've been feeling a lot more these days!! It's still not every day, but I notice it more. Mostly it's after Pilates or Yoga...or after I clean for a while. That sort of thing.

Sleep: It's been better lately, but I think it's because I've been going to bed later instead of going to bed when Joe does. I'm a night owl and he's not. I like going to bed with him (and sometimes I do, I just read), but it makes my sleep not so good.

What I'm looking forward to: The ultrasound next Thursday!

Cravings: Pretty much the same...but I haven't been downing all that sour candy lately. I did have a craving for chocolate chip cookies last week and remedied that with this recipe. =)

Symptoms: Heartburn, round ligament pain and back pain occasionally. One of my apps says that Yoga and Pilates help with back pain, so it looks like I'm already doing well on that front!

Best moment this week: Feeling the baby more and picking out bedding!! Well, the fabric for bedding that Melissa is going to make for me. =D

I'm seriously in love with the elephants and chevron. Thoughts?

I am so so so so so excited for you! Being pregnant is so much fun (besides the heartburn, the lack of energy, etc) Just getting to feel your baby kick and move is my favorite part :-) ALMOST makes me wanna be pregnant again! (almost..LoL) Gotta get this newest one raised a bit first! ;-)

Awe your pregnant too! It's nice to find some more ladies who are going through the same things I am. Well even though I'm 34 weeks pregnant. A little a head of you. But I deff feel you on all this. I can't wait to see what your having! We found out when I was 20 weeks we are having a baby boy. It was so exciting! Also baby clothes shopping is like crack! It's so addictive. Good luck with everything! =]

Very cute bedding! You're getting so much further along! I can't believe how fast time goes these days.

Cute fabric!! Are you going to have matching curtains and everything? I can't wait to find out if you will be using the pink or blue elephant print!!

You're looking great. I always hear that really bad heartburn means the kid is going to have tons of hair! I can't wait to hear what you're having.
