16 Weeks: March 3

Baby's the size of a: Avocado and can hear our voices!

Sleep: Still sleeping pretty well, but I'm getting a little uncomfortable. Maybe it's time to justify buying one of those insane maternity pillows!

Best moment of this week: IT'S A GIRL! Revealing the amazing news to our family and friends was so fun!

Miss anything: Nothing really this week.

Food cravings: Nothing in particular.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still not feeling so hot since I went off Diclegis, but each day gets better!

Symptoms: Just a sore belly from all the growing that's happening!

Have you started to show yet: Ugh, I still just look fat.

Gender: Sweet baby girl!

Happy or moody most of the time: Still can't stop smiling since we found out it's a girl!

Looking forward to: Shopping, shopping, shopping! We started our registry at Babies R Us this past weekend, which makes it seems so much more real.

17 Weeks: March 10

Baby's the size of a: Pear and her heart is now regulated by her brain - no more random beats!

Sleep: Pretty much meh.

Best moment of this week: We had family in town from Texas and the weather was beautiful, so it was nice to get outside and be active. And hang out with family!

Miss anything: Sushi!

Food cravings: This weekend I just had to have Taco Bell - oops.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Ugh, I'm still sick! Can't figure out any rhyme or reason to it, and really hoping I'm not one of the lucky few who are sick the whole time. (However, I will happily take it for a healthy babe!)

Symptoms: Still just feeling blah and my nose is stuffy (apparently that's a symptom?).

Have you started to show yet: I think I finally popped! Thoughts?

Gender: Baby girl. Still can't believe it! :)

Happy or moody most of the time: I haven't been moody much! (At least, I like to think so.)

Looking forward to: Getting the nursery started. We moved out the guest room furniture, so it's now a blank slate!

Also, Hank decided to take it upon himself to start "nesting". Ay yi yi.

18 Weeks: March 17 (Happy St. Patty's Day!)

Baby's the size of a: Sweet potato and is hiccuping and yawning!

Sleep: Meh, as usual.

Best moment of this week: I'm starting to feel her move around! Still nothing consistent, but it's a fun surprise to feel the butterflies every once in awhile.

Miss anything: Sugar Free Red Bull.

Food cravings: Comfort foods: french fries, chicken tenders, hot fudge sundaes... the real healthy stuff.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I haven't gotten sick since Friday (March 13). This is serious, people. We may be officially OVER "morning" sickness!

Symptoms: Nothing really.

Have you started to show yet: Ok, for real. She popped! I don't care if you can tell or not, she did. And I'm sticking to it.

Happy or moody most of the time: For some reason, the past couple weeks I've had this feeling like 18 weeks was going to be the best week. Maybe it's because my favorite number is 8? Or she's due on the 18th? So far, I'm just so happy and it's the best!

Looking forward to: Everything! I'm just so happy right now!
