belly business -- 18 weeks


How far along: 18 weeks
Size of the baby: sweet potato
Total weight gain/loss: I think I've gained about a pound ... but we had a pretty great time this weekend and I think I might have gained some more weight as a result. We'll see ...
Maternity clothes: I have finally gotten the Bellaband equivalent from Target and I really love it! I got one in black and I'm pretty much settled that I need the white one too. 
Cravings: all the bad things -- salty fried food and sweets and caffeine-free Dr. Pepper -
Symptoms: Still rockin' the indigestion. Thank goodness I have Zantac!
Movement: Not yet, but I'm hoping to feel the little booger soon!
Gender predictions: I've had people tell me they are convinced I'm having a girl and people convinced I'm having a girl. J's great grandmother (who turned 100 right before Thanksgiving) is certain it's a girl and apparently she called all 3 of one of her granddaughter's kids. 

Baby M went to its first and final Big 12 championship game this weekend (more on that later) and I think he/she did great! I really was hoping that the boog would get so excited during the game I might finally feel a little kick, but no such luck! 

We're less than 2 weeks away from our next DRs appointment and I'm anxious to go back and either see our little boog or hear it's heartbeat! 

I'm sorry but I'm a bit tired and J is down with a tweaked back, so an 18 week belly pic is forthcoming. Hope you all had a fab weekend!!
