18 weeks

how far along? 18 weeks, 1 day
total weight gain: 10 pounds, although it kinda feels like 25. hundred.
babys size/development this week: baby is about the size of a  bell pepper, approx 6 inches and weighs about 7 oz. 
maternity clothes: havent gotten anything new... still wearing a few of the tops (especially to work, my scrub tops arent comfortable anymore). still wearing my regular jeans.
sleep: a little better than last week, getting more used to sleeping on my side. still not feeling like im getting enough sleep though but i havent been waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to fall back asleep as much as i had been
miss anything? summer
movement? again i think i am feeling something but its difficult to distinguish what it really is
food cravings? nothing new
anything making you queasy or sick? nah. im a boring pregnant person haha. although im really not interested in potato chips lately, which is very unlike me.
best moment of the week: clearly its not the pats game... i dunno, this week was kinda lame, although i did have a great time shopping with sarah and dinner with andrea. and i do love getting all the christmas cards!
name ideas: clearly sara's contribution of "christian grey sterling" is at the top of our list
nursery decor: i think we've maybe decided on the bedding for the crib that we want... penguins!
miles run this week: 12.4 haha. fail. but i felt pretty good on the 6.4 i did saturday am.
wedding rings on or off? sadly they are off, but not because my fingers got fat or anything. last week i discovered that a diamond had fallen out (despite having just had them tighten all the settings)... i think i have been without my rings more in the last 2 years than ive had them! i dropped them off the next day and i wont have them back until jan 21st. booooo. but i am having them un-soldered and will just wear my engagement ring to work since the wedding band keeps changing to yellow gold with the use of hand sanitizer (my engagement ring is palladium, the band is white gold). ugh.
mood: meh. i love that its snowing and all but i just kinda feel blah right now.
looking forward to: friday nights "end of the world" party with friends and spending saturday with my mom... got her something for xmas that im very excited about!


  1. 18 weeks is when things started happening for me. I started feeling the baby move in earnest and this is when the belly definitely started to grow.

  2. Dude, your boobs look SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!!!! If they were mine I would be facinated by them. Nice job.
    And clearly my baby name is the best.

    1. I was just going to say "I want your boobs!"...
