18 weeks

How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain: 9 pounds
Maternity clothes? I actually did cave and buy my first official maternity shirt this week! Just a simple white tee from Ross (you can never have too many white t's, right!) and I LOVE it. It fits so comfortably. I think there are one or two pair of pants left that still button...My friend Jen lent me some maternity pants, and soon I'll be shopping for my own.
Stretch marks? Nooo. I am using BioOil every day to help me NOT get them.
Sleep: I still sleep very well, aside from getting up three times a night to pee, but I'm getting more uncomfortable in the bed.
Best moment this week: I scored some suuuper cute handmade baby gear at a craft fair this weekend that I was pretty excited about, three bibs and a burp cloth. Also this week, I started working on some cute decorations for my gender reveal party and I can't waiiiit for it!
Miss Anything? I really miss fitting into my normal clothes.
Movement: None this week, but I guess my uterus is moving or something because I've had a lot of cramps.
Food cravings: Nutella & banana sandwiches this week!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender:  ???????????
Labor Signs: No way
Symptoms: Belly Button in or out? innie
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: A combination of both this week. Some things have been getting under my skin so much easier than usual.
Looking forward to: Finishing planning my gender party!
Showing?: Yep, starting to sport that bump.

Here's my suuper cute scores from the craft fair...
