18 Weeks

 Ryan and I are overjoyed! We are so excited to welcome a baby BOY in February. Although I would have been thrilled if we were having a girl, I am also a bit relieved knowing I won't go bankrupt buying bows and dresses. But then again, when our boy gets older the hunting gear will be just as expensive. I CAN'T WAIT! Last weekend we had our gender reveal party and it was so much fun. Ryan and I thought it would be fun to find out at the same time as our family and be surprised by something other than just looking at a monitor. We were right, so much more exciting.

 While we were getting ready for the big reveal, we let Abby vote. I held up a pink and blue piece of paper and she immediately walked over and started sniffing the pink paper. Unfortunately, Abby isn't getting her wish. I hope she will be happy with her new baby brother!

Our reveal was at my Aunt and Uncle's shooting lodge so we had plenty of room to shoot our exploading tannerite. It was so fun and perfect knowing we will be having a boy.

How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain/loss:  I finally gained 1 pound...not that I am complaining!
Maternity Clothes? I can still fit into all my normal pants, but my shirts are a little snug so I wear some maternity clothes for comfort.
Stretch marks? No, but I really need to find a good cream/lotion. I have had a few recommendations but still looking for suggestions!!
Sleep: These past two weeks I have gotten very little. Last week I was sick with a bad cold and this week I have just been up through the night with pains.
Best moment this week: Last weekend we found out we were having a BOY!
Have you told family and friends? Yes!!!
Miss anything? I am still missing a good steak! I love my steak medium rare and if it can't be pink, it is a waste of meat. haha
Movement: My doctors have been telling me for awhile to start paying attention, but I still haven't noticed anything.
Food cravings: Food doesn't always sound great, but potatoes always sound good. Chili cheese tater tots--YUM! Cold water or ice.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not too much, just the smell of BBQ.
Have you started to show yet: You can see for yourself in the picture above, but I definitely think so! Or still maybe just a belly full of donuts??
Gender prediction: IT'S A BOY!!!!
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, but these past two weeks I have been more moody. I think because of lack of sleep due to being sick and being up from pains in the night. 
Looking forward to: My appointment in two weeks when they do all the important measurements and a longer ultrasound.
