Baby Size: 5 1/2 inches (crown to rump) More like 9 inches head to toe.
Weight Gain: We're guessing 9 lbs or so.
How I feel: Pretty good physically. I am having some lower abdominal pain in the evenings, stretching and such. Emotionally I am up and down. I am sure it's a combination of hormones and May 1st being tomorrow.
Symptoms: No heartburn yet (knocking on wood now). My breasts are sore again. Let's also mention the hot flashes, and generally being warmer than normal.
Cravings: Nothing in particular, though I am enjoying the first watermelon of the spring/summer season.
Best Part of Last Week: Cinco responding to Willy's touch twice last night, even though he couldn't feel her/him. Also, the many, many times I was asked by strangers when I was due. I am really looking obviously pregnant, and I love it so much!
What I am looking forward to: 10 more days until Baby Cinco has a name. Can't wait!!!!!
This past week has been pretty good. The weather was nice most days, and that helps tons!! Cinco moves throughout the day. Every time I feel him/her, I just smile. It warms my heart so much to feel this little baby just moving around in there. I also found Cinco's heartbeat in a different place on Saturday for the first time in over a month.
Last night Willy and I were hanging on the couch watching tv. He reached over and rubbed my belly. Cinco ran a leg, arm, bottom, something up against where he rested his arm. Then a few minutes later, he patted right below my belly button, and Cinco kicked back. Absolutely amazing. If Cinco is a girl, she's already a Daddy's Girl.
Here is my 18 week picture. More definite growth this week!
Here is a comparison picture from last week. I am going to try and do these weekly now.
This is the first time I've worn a dress while pregnant. Still not a huge fan of it, but it was comfortable.
This week was the first picture where I saw baby curled up in there.
The boys wanted to see a picture of what Cinco looks like and this one is amazing! They are so, so excited!!
