18 Weeks

Apparently I'm as bad with this baby as I was with Cory in taking pictures!  Here I am at 18 weeks already and this is the first belly shot.  I dug out my maternity clothes a long time ago and I think they make you show more, but still, this one is sticking out sooner than the others.  Darn stretched out stomach!

Also, a very large apology to my sister in law who is 8 weeks ahead of me and still claims no one can tell!

At least I'm not nauseous anymore and for about a week I had some energy so my house got a thorough cleaning.  I think it wore me out though because I'm back to being tired again.  Now you add in Daylight Saving Time and my boys thinking it's still summer hours and I'm in trouble!

Friday we have the ultrasound to measure and hopefully this one will cooperate so we can figure out what we're having!  And yes, for the millionth time, we would like a girl!

One other cool fact. Although we didn't get to meet this summer I have the exact same due date as my friend Stephanie(and it doesn't look like it by the baby tickers because my midwives moved my due date up as far as they could in case this one also comes early we would like to avoid going to the hospital if at all possible!  They can't deliver before 37 weeks and Noah was born at 37 1/2.  But I calculate my due date to be on Easter!)


  1. At 18 weeks people were asking me when I was due! I mean, SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you doing a birthing center or a home birth?

  2. You look great!

    My belly is showing earlier this time too. In fact, every morning my 5-year-old says, "Look how much your stomach is punching out!" ;)

    Our sonogram is scheduled for the 14th and we hope to find out the gender as well.

    Also - I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who is still exhausted. I can barely exercise at this point (but I know I need to be!). What do you do to keep your motivation up?

    P.S. Sorry we didn't get to meet this summer! We'll likely be up in Washington again eventually... :)

    I (or rather the baby?) have had a huge growth spurt in the last couple weeks and I am looking a lot more pregnant. At my monthly appt yesterday I'd put on 8 lbs, compared to 1 lb in the month before. Though I think you're almost as big as me. Now we know why! :)
