Surro Babe: 18 Weeks!

Things sure have been busy! Good, but busy!

On Tuesday, I had an Amnio done to determine if the baby has any abnormalities. We also get to find out the gender when we get the results next week! So I decided to put a Gender Poll up on the right hand side! So make sure you vote!!

Back to the Amnio... Holy Crap that hurt! It was one of the most uncomfortable things I have ever had to do. The feeling and pressure was pretty intense. All I could do was close my eyes and breathe. My friend was there with me and rubbing my arm. From what the Dr said, the fluid looks great and we should have the results back within 10 days!


 Babe's Long Legs!!!

Today is: November 14, 2013

How far along: 18 weeks 1 days

Total weight gain: 0lbs

Baby is the size of: A Bell Pepper

What is going on with this baby: Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long, and he weighs almost 7 ounces (about the size of a bell pepper). He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.

Baby is a: I am thinking GIRL :) We will find out next week!

Maternity Clothes: oh yeah...

Sleep: Eh... I am waking up around 3x a night to go to the bathroom and my hips are bothering me. I have been getting Calf Cramps/Knots in my right leg for the past week that are killing me. 

Movement: I have been feeling movement more and more each day!

Symptoms: I've been getting some energy back and I am able to start eating other things. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: 

Best moment(s) this week:

I'm looking forward to:
