Week 18 πŸŒΈπŸŽ€πŸ’•

This week was pretty amazing with little lady. I had so many fun milestones that it's just making me so excited.  

We started the week with our big 18 week ultrasound and it was perfect. She doesn't have a cleft lip, no club feet, and they saw all of her heart and blood vessels! That night I thought I had felt her but I wasn't sure. I woke up Wednesday morning and totally knew it was her. She gave me a solid 30 minutes of kicking me and it was glorious. I felt so happy and felt like we had made it to a whole new level with our pregnancy. 

I have been pretty calm this pregnancy but there is always fear in my mind, so having these reassurances all week has truly been amazing!   

I met with my doctor Wednesday and all is well, and I won't go back for another 3 weeks, right before I go to Ireland.  

We love little girl so much. I think I truly underestimated the love I'd end up feeling for her. I can't wait for her to grow more and feel her more regularly.  

baby size: green bell pepper πŸ’š

weight gain: 114 so far! Almost back to my weight I began pregnancy at! It was so much easier to eat this week.

Sleep: Okay! Dreams are getting nuts. Some nights I sleep so well and some are awful. Starting to get super tight belly at night and it's so uncomfortable to lay down, but that's okay! 

Cravings: strawberry lemonade, Taco Bell nachos, chips and queso, ice cream Β 

feeling : really happy. Felt her kick so many times, and knowing she is healthy and strong is an amazing feeling. 

Gender: πŸ’•πŸŽ€πŸŒΈπŸ’•πŸŽ€πŸŒΈ baby girl! Been buying her a few things for when she comes! 

Peak moment: feeling her kick. What a feeling. Every time I still get so excited. I miss her every second she doesn't kick!
