18 weeks

*First, let me say, if you tried to watch the videos on the past 3 posts or so, I was a dumb-dumb and uploaded them incorrectly.  It's been fixed, so you can go back and watch them now!*
Pregnancy Highlights
How far along: 18 weeks
Size of baby: 6 inches, 1/2 pound (about the size of a mango)
Maternity Clothes: pants, but regular shirts are becoming harder to wear.  When I was pregnant with Robby, I was wearing mostly regular shirts the entire time, but this time my regular shirts don't seem to be long enough.  Sadly, I only have 2 maternity shirts and I don't foresee getting any more anytime soon.  So I guess I'll just raid Tim's t-shirt drawer! (The shirt I'm wearing in this picture was a gift from Catie!  It is so comfy and Tim complimented me twice the day I wore it!  It definitely made me feel nice!)
Movement: I haven't really felt any movement.  I think I felt the baby push it's head or butt at one point, but I'm not sure.  I cannot even tell you how relieved I will  be to see that sweet baby moving around on that screen next week!
Sleep: Not much, but not the fault of the pregnancy!
Symptoms: My back and hips are beginning to hurt.  Other than that, I'm tired and hungry most all the time.
Food cravings/aversions: Everything!  
What I am looking forward to: Hopefully finding out if this baby is a boy or a girl next week.  But I will be happy just finding out that he/she is healthy and growing.
