Bump Update: 18 Weeks

Tucker wanted to join me for this one!

How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Guessing about + 4-5 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Same story here, mostly my normal stuff. I have avoided a few pairs of jeans that don't have a good amount of stretch in them. My Henry + Belle jeans have been amazing so far.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: The first part of the week was not fun. Then the next few nights were great. I have started stretching before bed and that seems to help sleep comfortably. However, last night I woke up with the most awful heartburn. We splurged on Papa Johns pizza and it came back to haunt me. Never again, Papa Johns. Never again.
Best moment this week: More baby kicks. It's the best feeling in the world. I love that it is strong enough for Stephen to feel- we've had several mornings to lay in bed and feel it! 
Have you told family and friends: Yes, everyone knows.
Miss Anything? Not really! I have too much on my mind to worry about missing anything.
Movement: Yes and I love it! Baby loves to move.
Food cravings: Cereal and more donuts! Of course, only the good stuff.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing I can think of this week other than that Papa Johns!
Have you started to show yet: Yes. Baby bump is making its way :)
Gender prediction: This. Week. !!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and nervous about our appointment. I try to be very positive but I am a worrier at heart. I just want a healthy baby! 
Looking forward to: Hopefully having a great doctor appointment and getting to see that baby on our ultrasound. We haven't had one since 7 weeks and I can't wait to see that sweet thing! I will be happy with a girl or boy, I am open to either :)

Sorry about heartburn. I had it this time around and never knew that tomatoes were a huge issue with heartburn. Did you try tums? They helped me instantly.
