18 weeks and growing..



Y'all I'm almost halfway there. Almost halfway to the day that we get to meet our little guy for the first time! I had an ultrasound yesterday and my 18 week check up this morning. It was so fun seeing Will on the big screen again. He's getting bigger which is a good thing because so am I! Yes, I have finally hit that point where I LOVE food again.

Let's get to the good stuff..

Weeks: 18

Cravings: I'm loving pickles these days. I've had an intense craving for doughnuts which was finally satisfied last night with a trip to Krispy Kreme. Chris put Kate down to bed and the momma and I drove all the way to the Block and I made her go inside so we could smell the fresh baked doughy goods. Another thing I'm loving but trying to avoid since it's not the healthiest are pepperoni sticks (you know the ones that are always at the checkout line at the market!)

Food aversions: Chicken breasts and steak are still gross.

Heartbeat: 158

Gender: He's still a BOY! :)

Extras: I now sleep with 4 pillows, three of them under my head to help keep heartburn away and one for my belly. I'm basically sleeping on a marshmallow. My belly is measuring on the small side, 16 weeks instead of 18 because I am so tall. It was the same story with Kate. I am starting to feel Will more and more each day. His little thumps are so sweet, one of my favorite feelings in the world! He is also transverse at the moment, good thing he still has time to move!

Our little guy is measuring 2 days ahead of schedule and weighed in yesterday at a whopping 8 ounces! That's the size of Kate's milk that she drinks before bed and from crown to rump he is the size of a bell pepper. It is amazing watching him grow.

Can't wait to see you in two weeks little man!
