Bump Updates: Weeks 16, 17 and 18

I find that I'm getting behind in my bump updates, so I'm combining weeks 16,17 and 18 into one post.


How far along: 18 weeks

Baby's size: Large Tomato (About 6 in and 8.5 oz)

Total weight gain: 6lbs

Stretch marks? None, yet.

Sleep: I'm not sleeping as well. I keep changing position and I'm having to get up a lot to pee.

Best moment this week: Getting part of my registry done. I haven't put everything on there, but I'm making progress.

Miss anything? This week? Wine. Staring at the Riesling at the wine shop the other day really made me wish I could have a glass. Or three... 

Movement: Oh my goodness...yes! Baby P was kicking up a storm this week. I could do without the bladder kicks though. That just hurts.

Food cravings: This week it was Hiland French Onion Dip and Lay's Plain Potato Chips.

Anything making you queasy or sick?  Nope, not this week.

Gender: We're supposed to find out this week. Hopefully Baby P is cooperative. I had another dream this week that I had a girl and she had red hair.

Labor signs: Nope. Too early for that.

Symptoms: Peeing all the time. Round ligament pain, a few moments here and there of being lightheaded. My boobs hurt more this week.

Belly button in or out: In

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, but again...I cry over anything. This week it was the thought of Boomer getting old and dying and the song "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis.

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender, putting together the nursery, finally deciding on a photographer for my maternity photos and Baby P's newborn photos.

Question of the Day

Today's question is for all you domestic types out there.  Who cleans your house? You? A cleaning service? A Roomba?

Sean and I had our home deep cleaned by a cleaning service since it was never deep cleaned before we moved in. We are tossing around the idea of having the cleaning service come once a month for a more thorough cleaning than we usually do.  Does anyone else do this? Or do you prefer to do it yourself?
