18 weeks!!

I promised a 18 week update.. and here I am.
 It's crazy to really understand that we are already five months pregnant! five months! 
This week's questioner comes from ""

How far along: 18 weeks

Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained 5 pounds

Sleep: I'm most comfortable on my right side for some reason. I do sleep with a body pillow now mostly to keep me off my back. Oh I don't have any issues sleeping or taking naps. :)

Best Moment of the week: We ordered a whole bunch of onesies off my pinterest board.. basically from Etsy, we also ordered the nursery bedding and bought paint. I also got my Scentsy warmer for the nursery... which I'll have to explain in a different post. {here is a onesie that I bought}.

Movement: I feel movement on and off. There are days where the baby is very active and then there are days that I don't feel anything. My husband has been able to feel the baby move too. Huge moment for him.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I love - love - love Lays potato chips (but don't indulge very often) and I can't stand chicken. I eat a lot of fruits, veggies and yogurt.

Pregnancy Symptoms: back pain and off/on headaches. I've also resorted to just asking for a foot massage at the nail salon because the bottom of me feet hurt! I'm also thankful that I have a heating pad.

What I miss: Oh well if we are being honest then.. I miss alcohol. Wine - beer- Jack.. all of it. I also miss the energy that I used to have.

Stretch marks: nope.. no new ones.

Belly Button: pretty shallow

Wedding Rings:
Yes! I just got them cleaned and the lady was surprised I could wear them still.

Mood: Pretty calm. I seem to have a shorter temper with pregnancy but that's not always a bad thing.

Labor Signs: nope.

Milestones: hitting the five month marker & feeling the baby move around

Upcoming Events/Appointments: We have our 3rd wedding anniversary just four days (the 24th) before our 3D ultrasound! Super exciting and great timing!!

What I look forward too: I'm looking forward to seeing our baby peanut butter style (3D pics). I'm also looking forward to getting the nursery painted tomorrow & I'm looking forward to the baby really start to move around more.

Weekly Wisdom:
pshh. I don't have any wisdom to give.

That is my update. I should be able to post nursery pictures soon. It wont be complete but you'll get the overall idea. Plus I can't to share with you all my adventure over a Scentsy warmer!! If you'd like to keep up with me more then just through blogger.. please follow me on instagram!!
