How far along: 18w4d

This weeks' weight gain/loss: +1lb

Total weight gain/loss: -11lbs

Symptoms: my stomach is feeling HUGE and heavy! Ugh, it's such a weird and strange feeling - like I am lugging around a brick down there haha Pants that sit on my abdomen there are very uncomfortable and bending over is getting more and more difficult because of it. Other than that, my appetite is slowly returning and the nausea has subsided. Heartburn comes and goes, but it is way more manageable these days. Sleep sucks, I toss and turn all night, but at least I'm not wide awake with full blown insomnia or anything.

Maternity clothes: maternity pants and some shirts, but I don't really need the shirts per say yet and am just wearing them for a little change in wardrobe if nothing else.

Stretch marks: yes :o( around the hips, lower abdomen and thighs *sigh*

Best moment this week: we had our Anatomy Scan on Friday!!! It was so cool to see Owen in such detail, he looks like such a little person in there! I love getting to see him on ultrasounds :o)

Movement: definite kicks now, just waiting for Bryan to be able to feel them from the outside.

Food cravings: lots of salty and sour stuff - sour patch kids and pickles lol

Gender: it's a BOY!!! Owen Richard W*****

Any baby related purchases: he has soooooooo many clothes already!!! Every time we see a grandparent, they have a new outfit for him - luckily they're buying in larger sizes (3+ months), because we all know that we'll be getting TONS of NB sized clothing for showers and what not. We also finished our registries, now we just have to keep em updated until the showers this summer. While we were at the store, they had their usual impulse buy products up by the register (you know, the cheap tacky items with baby names on them)... well they had sippy cups and they had Owen's name!!! I was so excited (they never had my name on anything growing up, not until after the hurricane at least lol) so we had to get it. I know it's corny, but it's the fist thing we've purchased with his name on it and so I was very excited :o)

Milestones: successful Anatomy Scan and almost half baked!

Awww, that sippy cup is cute! I think it will be a little harder for us to find stuff with Jade's name on it! lol

I'm glad to know someone else is having the same symptoms as me. I also feel like I'm lugging around a brick at times and I try to do anything to keep from bending over.
