Baby #4 - 18 Weeks

(I added a few other questions from some other weekly pregnancy posts I found on the Internet!)

How many weeks pregnant? 18 weeks, 2 days

Which trimester are you in? Second! I've just entered my fifth month.

Bump photo: No bump photo this week. I think my next sticker is...Week 20, maybe?

How big is baby? Baby is currently the size of a sweet potato.

Pregnancy symptoms: Baby's "house" seems to have grown overnight! My belly has gotten more poky all of a sudden. Some nausea/sickness the last few days but I don't think that's due to pregnancy, guessing something didn't agree with me or a bug of some kind.

Belly Button - In/Out: Still in. I've actually never had a belly button pop out during any of my pregnancies thus far.

Cravings/Aversions: I had a random craving for Rally's french fries the other night! I was happily able to satisfy it too. :) Otherwise, I've still just not really been feeling like eating much, especially the last few days. I've been feeling kind of run down and puky. :(

Sleep: Sleep has been a little broken recently but normally it's pretty good. I am very blessed to have children that like sleeping. (At this stage, anyway.) I'd love it if they all did a nap/rest time in the afternoon but it never seems to happen, and that's okay.

Nesting: None. More like forgetting to nest! I've apparently hit my clueless stage as I've been forgetting anything & everything left, right, and sideways.

Maternity Clothes: I got some more of my maternity clothes out a week or so ago. I think I'm going to have to break down and get some new pants. Or perhaps try this tutorial I found online to alter pants you already have with elastic...not sure if I'm that crafty though.

Weight Gain: Plus a pound/two, but then minus a pound or three after I got sick this weekend. :(

Movement: I felt little tiny baby movements right around 17 weeks and a day or two! Hubby thought he felt something while I was sleeping one night and we joked that it was probably gas...but then on a Sunday after lunch I felt those little fluttery "butterfly wing" type movements and KNEW that's what it was! So exciting. And I've been feeling them pretty consistently after eating.

Gender: Still a mystery. :) I have had TONS of people asking what we want or when we're going to find out what we're having, etc. It gets soooooo old explaining it over and over (that we're going to let it be a surprise) but I know it's not the norm, that I need to be patient, and that some people are just curious. Sometimes I just want to be a jerk though and tell them it's a goat.

Dad & Other Kiddos: Not much baby-related to report about them. They're doing good!

Best moment this week: Movement!

Looking forward to: My first chiropractor appointment today. Hoping it will help with baby positioning this time around. (Zac was posterior.)
