18 week update!

How far along are you? 18 weeks and 5 days! Blake’s facial features are starting to come together and she can also yawn, hiccup and swallow.

How are you feeling? Still feeling good! =)

How big is baby? Blake is now the size of a sweet potato! She is measuring  5 1/2 inches and weighing approx 7 ounces.


Sleep: Alternate sleeping on left and right side. No more back/stomach sleeping for me!

Cravings? Haven’t had much cravings, they seem to come and go!

Milestone: Before I use to gradually grow a bump by the end of the day through eating and what not but now I wake up with a bump, think its there to stay!

Maternity Clothing: Have’t really gone maternity shopping yet as I can still fit in my regular clothes but I have added a belly band to my wardrobe as its getting a little tight to button my jeans.

Movement: I believe I have started to feel some “quickening” small movements from Blake! It feels like a big gas bubble, like someone is blowing up a balloon in my stomach! lol

What I’m looking forward to: Seeing Blake tomorrow at the anatomy scan! Gonna drink some orange juice in the morning and hope she does some moving around for us!
