{18 week BUMPdate}

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I am officially 18 weeks and starting to finally feel close to normal now. Well maybe not close but as close as I am going to get! I have actually started cooking again and eating most of my "normal" foods!

I still haven't been great about adding exercise into my routine. Leisurely walking, chasing the kids, cleaning the house like a crazy person (since it is on the market) has basically been enough exercise to keep me extremely busy these days. I plan on adding in yoga routines to the mix asap!



Yesterday was a big day for us! We had the anatomy ultrasound and found out the sex of our baby!!!
I am proud to announce that we will be having a sweet baby boy this August!! I couldn't be more excited. I used to think that I would have all girls because I was way too prissy to handle a baby boy! I was so wrong!! I love baby boys!! I had no blue how much they can melt their Mama's heart!


How Far Along? 18 weeks

Size of Baby: They measured yesterday and he was 8 ounces!!

Gender: It's a BOY!!! :)

Weight Gain: I have gained about 9 lbs. so far. I think that is a pretty healthy amount at this point. Now that the nausea has passed....I have finding it much easier to eat the healthy foods that I love! 

Maternity Clothes: I did buy a few maternity shirts from H&M. I love them. I still don't have any maternity jeans that I love. I am kind of hoping I can make due with some of my pre-pregnancy jeans until it is dress weather!

Nursery: No clue. :)
   
Movement: I have felt a few small movements but no big movements yet! I am looking forward to that!

Symptoms: Heartburn....so much heartburn!! Plus I have been really tired lately. Some days I seem to have decent energy but I have been napping quite a bit and I am NOT a nap person! I am exhausted!

Sleep: I sleep okay these days....I do wake up a few times a night to go to the bathroom but other than that I sleep pretty well.

Cravings:
Frozen yogurt! Really any kind of ice cream or Popsicle

What I Miss: Working out regularly and fitting into my normal clothes!!

Best Moment This Week: Finding out the sex of our baby yesterday and sharing it with my babies and my family!! 

Looking forward to: Feeling some movement! :)
