18 Weeks Down, 22 More To Go! ❤

18 Week Bump Board ❤

Hey everyone! This week has been CRAZY! I have been so anxious and excited about finding out the gender of Baby Morris. PLUS my belly finally POPPED, not literally, it just finally started showing and boy am I feeling the round ligament pains from it! Besides having to pee so bad every half hour and occasional cramps I am still doing A-OK! Hard to believe I am almost half way through my pregnancy already. Thank you all for joining my journey and always being so supportive. It means the world to me! I was blessed to have the opportunity to have hundreds of shoulders to lean on when I am feeling down! On that note, here is my 18 WEEK POST! 

Baby is 5.5 inches long
and weighs 5 ounces!

How far along? 18 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: I started at 119 I am now 120 pounds.

Maternity clothes? Still packed away! Love my leggings though!

Stretch marks? No new ones. The ones on my boobs are starting to show up again. 

Sleep: HORRIBLE. So many cramps this week.   

Best moment this week: This week Brayden has just been the cutest little thing EVER! I honestly can't get enough of him. He will be an amazing little brother.

Miss Anything? I miss cold meat sandwiches! Ha 

Movement: I have started to feel little flutters but can't wait to start feeling and seeing my baby kick! 

Food cravings: FRUIT, FRUIT, FRUIT, FRUIT! Lots of starburst! Haha

Anything making you queasy or sick: Red Meat, Potato Chips & Car Rides

Have you started to show yet: YESSSSSS! Bring on the baby bump!

Gender prediction: Matt and I agree on BOY!

Belly Button in or out? In. It never popped out with Brayden. 

Wedding rings on or off? On and loose. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: People have been causing lots of drama on my social media so thats stressful but other than that I am still feeling very blessed for my boys and baby number two! 

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender & feeling the baby move! 

Starting weight 119lb 
Starting waist measuremenst 31in. 

I am now 120lbs and 33in. 

NOVEMBER 14th 2013! 
Is when we find out the sex.
Little over 1 day! 

This week's big developments: Baby now may be large enough for you to feel he/she twisting, rolling, kicking, and punching its way around the womb. Plus, they are developing yawning and hiccuping skills (you may feel those soon, too!) Baby now has its own unique set of toe and fingerprints! 

Your Body in Week 18 of Pregnancy:

Oh, my aching back! If you've uttered those words more than once this week, here's why: Your uterus, now about the size of a cantaloupe, is causing your body's center of gravity to shift, pulling the lower back forward and pushing the abdomen out (so now everyone can see that you’re pregnant!). On top of all that, joint-loosening pregnancy hormones are wreaking havoc on your muscles and ligaments, adding up to one big ouch!
