18 Week Update! Woo!!
This is what Baby Sheridan should be doing/looking like this week…
- She is about 5 1/2 inches long and she weighs almost 7 ounces.
- She is busy flexing her arms and legs.
- Her blood vessels are visible through the thin skin, and her ears are now in their final position, although they’re still standing out from the head a bit.
- A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around her nerves, a process that will continue for a year after birth.
I mean, seriously, no wonder I’m tired.
How far along? 18 weeks
Baby’s size? Bell Pepper ( I love that my child has been a fruit or veggie since day one)
Total weight gain/loss: 15lbs…Since she is only supposed to weigh 7 ounces, this makes me quite nervous!
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Right now, aside from waking up at least twice to pee, I wake up around 3:30 or so and can’t go back to sleep for about 30 minutes or so. I blame the crazy dreams I’m still having…who knows?!
Best moment this week: Feeling her move more again. She seemed so still last week, she really had me nervous.
Miss Anything? Still laying on my belly…
Movement: She’s a wiggly one
Food cravings: TWINKIES!! I could eat a case!!
Food aversions: Just salad…figures.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still citrus smells or if I don’t eat/drink something as soon as I feel hungry/thirsty.
Gender: Girl (or so we think) wink wink
Labor Signs: Obviously none.
Symptoms: I’ve been pretty tired this week, but other than that, pretty good.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Baby items purchased? nada.
Happy or moody most of the time: Most of the time, I’m pretty happy. Anytime I get moody, it’s pretty justified…Not hormone related
Funny moments this week: I can’t think of one right now, but when I get all wound up talking about something, random words will just escape me and I’m standing there with my mouth open looking like a moron, and then I usually just make up a word and go on. It can get pretty funny
Looking forward to: Still October 15th…Ready to see if she is in fact a “she”
