How far along: 18 weeks, 1 day
Total weight gain: Half a pound. I'm strangely satisfied.
Maternity clothes: None, but some tops are getting too short and it takes a lot of self control to keep from walking around with my pants unbuttoned all day. I'm going shopping this weekend.
Feeling: Great! However, I did notice on Monday at about mile 2.5 that running may or may not be in my future for much longer. Holy uterus pain, Batman.
Sleep: Great! No complaints.
Food cravings or aversions: 2011 is the Year of the Potato.
Best moment of the week: I felt the baby move right after I posted my last update (so 16 weeks 4 days, if I'm keeping track). I've noticed the flutters at night, but today was the first time I could feel it during the day. No identifiable movements, just weird bubbly flutters that almost tickle.
Movement: See above.
Gender: Chinese gender charts say girl...which I'm sure is accurate.
Labor Signs: n/a
What I miss: I probably shouldn't say beer two updates in a row. So...sleeping on my stomach.
What I'm nervous about: Nothing really.
What I'm looking forward to: Our ultrasound in fifteen more days!
Milestones and new this week: Baby is the size of a bell pepper and is flexing its arms and legs.
