18 weeks with Baby Dos



*How far along?: 18 weeks 1 day
*Total weight gain?: up 7 pounds. boohiss.Can I go ahead and say I think a few of those pounds may be in my bra? Just sayin.
*How big is baby?: a sweet potato
*Sex: we find out on FRIDAY! Everyone is saying it's a girl, so obviously it's a sweet little boy!I'm putting it out there that my official guess is BOY. :) Ben swears up and down that we are having a girl. We'll see!
*Maternity clothes: wearing all maternity pants and hating them.
*Stretch marks: Nope.
*Sleep: Not great, but that is because we have a sick little boy at our house. I've gotten great practice with being up in the middle of the night!
*Symptoms: nothing...feeling great!
*Best moment this week: I got to hear that sweet heartbeat last Monday! It took the doctor a few minutes to get a good reading because guess what? This baby is really active. Ha!! Just what we need! :)The heartbeat was 148...lower than G's average!
*Movement: not yet but I keep waiting!
*Food cravings: fresh mozzarella & balsamic vinegar...random? I've been eating lots of salads this week!
 *Labor signs: hopefully not anytime soon!
*Belly button in or out: in
*What I miss: not being SO exhausted by 7:00 every night
*What I'm looking forward to: Friday. Friday. Friday!

Ahh! So excited to find out!! Would be so fun to have a girl, that's what I hope for next, but I am going to bet on Mama's intuition on this one :) If you think it's a boy, I'm going with boy! Hopefully G is feeling better so you can get some good rest! Love reading your updates!

I am thinking girl!! I was convinced Viv would be a boy and JM was right in guessing girl. So I am voting with Ben. Sugar and spice and everything nice!
