Bumpdate Weeks 17 & 18

17 weeks18 weeks

How far along: 18 weeks

Total Weight Gain: 6 pounds

Maternity clothes: I have broken out the maternity shorts and bought a new pair of maternity jeans. I still haven’t ventured into the attic to get all of my old things. Basically, trying to wear anything normal that still fits!

Gender: Boy! Confirmed it at my doctor’s appointment this week!

Still no name, but really loved the ones you guys commented and texted to me! Keep them coming!

Movement: I feel him move a few times a day, but definitely not consistently. 

Sleep: Pretty decent. I am up at least once a night to go to the bathroom.  I had a really rough night of insomnia this past week, but slept like a rock since including a 2+ hour nap today that was heavenly!

Cravings: Chocolate chips and carbs! A salad also usually sounds good. And if you mention it, I probably want to eat it too.

Symptoms: I am way more worn out this time around. I think, though, I have it figured out. My level of exhaustion directly correlates with the number of toddler meltdowns I have experienced in one day. :) Needless to say, it has been a very tiresome few days! Ha!

What I am looking forward to: Seeing baby again, getting in the fabric samples I ordered and Tommy and I may do another overnight away soon, which sounds heavenly!

Best moments: Seeing baby boy this week and confirming that he is, indeed, a boy! Emmy sleeping until 8:30 on Friday morning. That was a dream that has never come true! (Though she was up at 6:25 this morning, so it was short lived.) Getting a great nap today! And beginning to think about his room and getting some fun ideas together!


  1. What a precious little bump!! Does Emmy have any opinion of it? Does she notice it at all? You look so great & I'm glad you are feeling pretty good!


  2. Mmmmm, chocolate chips! :) my cravings for good in general have not subsided. Enjoy it while you can! You look so great! Love the Emmy photo bomb!

  3. Great to hear all the good news, and I love the picutre of Emmy watching you! That is so adorable!
    Love, Aunt Angie
