18 weeks!

Baby's now the size of a sweet potato!


Isn't that the ugliest picture, I mean they could have chosen something else!

 
Baby's become amazingly mobile, passing the hours yawning, hiccupping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking, and swallowing. And baby is finally big enough that you'll soon be able to feel his movements.

I feel little flutters here and there, but nothing that someone might be able to feel from the outside yet. I can't wait for that time, then M&M will be able to feel their little one moving too!

I ordered a new pregnancy pillow a few days ago and it should be delivered by tomorrow. I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival; my back kills me at night! I really hope I like it, it came highly recommended by Whitney and had good reviews online...we shall see! It's a Snoogle, pronounced like 'Google' with an S, of course. I looks like it takes up a lot of room, but I don't care, I just wanna be comfy! Sorry Kevin!

In other news, we will be having our big anatomy scan on July 5th! It's basically a very detailed ultrasound that measures all of the baby's, well, anatomy. Lol. I'm excited for numerous reasons; 1. my IPs will be coming down for the appointment (always love to see them!) 2. This particular u/s can take up to 45 minutes, which means we get to see the little one for FORTY-FIVE whole minutes! ♥ I don't know about you, but ultrasounds never get old, it's always fun to be able to peek in and check on the little one. 3. We will be touring L&D (Labor & Delivery) before the u/s appointment. Super cool! It will be a fun day, I'm sure.

Other than that, nothing else to report. As always, I'll leave ya with my weekly belly pic! TTYL.

Ohhhhhh you'll LOVE the Snoogle! I dont know how I made it through two pregnancies without it. I work at a baby store so with my third, I knew this wonderful thing existed and got one BEFORE I was even pregnant (got it for Christmas like 6 months before we started trying lol). The only thing I dont like about it, is that it hooks on both ends and since everyones body is made different, its not as comfy under the head (head/neck tilts in my case). I would have rather had my own pillow under my head. But...it still rocks! lol Cant wait to see u/s pics!!!
