Baby Yancey - 18 Week Bumpdate

I call this... dinner is cooked... I forgot I needed a picture for the blog.  #bloggerfail

How far along:  18 weeks

Baby Size:  As big as a sweet potato

Weight Gain:
  As of last Friday I was up 5 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight.  I asked my nurse if it was ok & she assured me that I was doing good & that I would start to put on more weight on later in my 2nd tri-mester & certainly in my 3rd tri-mester.  So, no hate mail please!  ;)

Maternity Clothes:  None this week... I really need to get my jeans hymned!

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  Nothing this week thankfully!

Sleep:  Back in my own bed & sleeping great!

Exercise:  Does running around like a chicken with your head cut off count??  Now that Matt is home in the evenings we are planning to start walking!

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Oh my gosh talk about a major sweet tooth!  If you follow me on Instagram you already know how awesome Matt was and caved to my sweet tooth by bringing home sopapillas!!  Ahh!  So good!!

Gender:  BOY!  Sweet baby Jack Montgomery!!!

Movement:  Yes!  I can say with certainty that those grumbling feelings I was feeling is certainly our little dude!  Just Wednesday night I bent over to pick something up & my lower abdomen felt really tight.  After I stood up I felt my stomach & it was hard as a rock.  It was the weirdest feeling but, so cool too!  I can't wait to really feel him move!

Symptoms:  With feeling him move I think he's been on my bladder the last couple of days because I can't quit running to the ladies room!  Also, the tatas... they've been noticeably bigger than before (I know this b/c I've never been overly blessed there).  Well, I can say that is all changing these days!  It's really kind of weird & I can't quit laughing about it honestly!

Labor Signs:  Negative!

Belly button in or out:  In

Wedding rings on or off:  On

Mood:  Overall happy but, we got some news this last week that well, without going into too much detail, has just given us a real reality check.

Nursery:  It's going to be worked on this weekend & I'm pretty sure we've found our crib!

What I miss:  Pumpkin/Fall beer.  Just being honest here.  Trying new/different ones was one of my favorite things to do last Fall & now I get to watch Matt & our friends drink them.... Next year!

Best moment this week:  Seeing our little boy just smiling away on the ultrasound last Friday!

What I'm looking forward to:  Shopping for nursery furniture & decorations!  Sorry if you follow me on Pinterest... bear with me for a bit will ya?  :)


  1. I feel you on the lack of weight gain! I lost about 10 pounds my first trimester and now i'm just a bit over my pre-pregnancy weight. Sometimes I'm afraid to tell other women what I've gained when they ask! Yay on the crib!! I love poking my head into the nursery to check out the crib every morning. Can't wait to see pictures!

  2. It bothers me so much that people actually receive hate mail when they discuss their weight gain or loss!!! I only gained 16 pounds my whole pregnancy and delivered a 9 pound child. Weight gain or weight loss doesn't matter! Off my soap box...he will be here before you know it. :)

  3. Growing: but still glowing!!!!!
