Today is actually our 2 year anniversary! I can hardly believe it’s been 2 years since we exchanged wedding vows on the beach in Mexico. Time just goes by so fast. We do not have any major plans today, but are planning to do something next weekend instead.

You might notice a new alias this week that was not on my 17-week check-in. Brett’s aunt reminded me that his grandma has given the baby her own nickname – Skeeziks! Not sure where that came from, but it’s kinda cute. I’m sorry I forgot to include it last week.

Baby bump progress - week 18

For those of you who cannot read the board, here are the stats:

Alias: Peanut/Skeeziks
Age: 18 weeks
Sex: Unknown
Height: 5.6 in.
Weight: 6.7 oz.
Notes: Baby is getting more active & kicking a lot! (That’s my attempt as a soccer ball – ha!)

How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain? 15.5 lbs. Not too bad this week. :)
Maternity clothes? Pants are fitting tighter every week and I have to wear my beband with all of my regular pants. It’s not going to be long before I am in maternity clothes exclusively. However, I can still rock my jeggings. Who knew that teen fashion would be good for maternity wear?!?
Sleep? Still pretty good. I bought a body pillow this week and am adjusting to that.
Miss anything? Still would love to go snowboarding, but it’s a pretty rough season here so that helps.
Movement? Finally! I was able to feel really good kicks this week. Hoping the little one will kick hard enough for Brett to feel him/her tonight.
Cravings? Not really. However, I’m loving turkey burgers from Larkburger this week.
Aversions? Nope, but my sense of smell is still a bit heightened. Brett can never smell the things I can.
Gender: Unknown. We’ll find out at our 20-week ultrasound and come up with a fun way to share it with all of you.
Labor signs? Good heavens, no.
Wedding ring on or off? On.
Looking forward to: Seeing “Peanut” on the ultrasound in a couple of weeks. I also found out that I won a trip to Bloggy Boot Camp in Phoenix in April!!! Whoo hoo! What a fun surprise. Any of my other blog buddies going?

      Thanks, Jocelyn. It must be a generational thing! You have to let me know if you come out this was you visit your sister. I\’d love to try and meet up.
