18 Week Survey- Baby O #2

How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 149 lbs-- 8 lbs. total.  At this point with Graydon I had already gained 14 lbs. Wow!
How big is baby?  Baby weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now. - Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  A little of both. Regular shirts and mixing in maternity pants here and there. They are just a lot more comfortable especially if I have to bend over which having a toddler, it seems like I do that a lot!
Sleep: OK I guess.
Best moment this week:  Feeling definite movement all the time now. It is awesome!  Also, getting the house clean and finally getting stuff organized. Getting our new blinds put up. Graydon's room is sort of starting to come together. It takes Chris a long time to put the furniture together and he only has a little time here and there so it's taking a while. Sunday  morning I did the Bridge Walk downtown which was a lot of fun. I love that event.
Movement: Yes, all the time now. Love it. :)
Food cravings: Chocolate chex, pumpkin stuff or hearty fall food in general. Sushi. Finally got my fried chicken craved fulfilled the other night at Cracker Barrel!
Food aversions:  Some meats and vegetables.
Gender: No idea, but thinking GIRL!  We find out Friday, Oct. 5. Any guesses?
Labor Signs: Nada
Symptoms:  Just nausea and sore breasts.  Not sleeping well and very tired.
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on and for a long time hopefully. :)
Stretchmarks? I have some very faint marks from being pregnant with Graydon but they are not very noticeable.
How are you feeling?  I am OK. I still feel blah all the time. I keep having headaches on and off, had a bad migraine again the other night. Usually always tired, and somewhat nauseous on and off. Dizzy spells occasionally.
What I am looking forward to:  Well I am loving the cooler weather right now and we are looking forward to our Ultrasound!  Movie night and spending time with Lyn on Wednesday.
What I miss:  Sleeping well and feeling normal.
Weekly Wisdom:
Don't overdue it. 
Milestones:  Feeling movement all the time!
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others: I overheard Chris telling Graydon the other day when I wasn't feeling well that "His little sister was being a pain (since he REALLY thinks it's a girl!) so he needed to leave Mommy alone." LOL!   My coworker Nancy also keeps referring to the baby as a "her."  I was ranting about something to my bestie Kerri earlier and all of a sudden she as like Oh my gosh you are SOO pregnant!!  We just died cracking up. gotta love em!
