18 Weeks

I reached the 18 week mark, which also signifies the end of 4 months of pregnancy.  5 more months seems sooo long, but I know it will go by fast.  Here are recent highlights (lowlights?) at this point:

  • I first felt the baby move during Week 16.  But more recently, the movements have become stronger and more frequent.  It's amazing!
  • I've gained 6 pounds so far.
  • No real cravings.  But, I've been eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal everyday.  I haven't had that since I was a kid.
  • During Week 16, I developed some sort of rash on the sides of my stomach.  It's gotten better, but comes and goes.  (This is definitely a lowlight.)
  • Yesterday, I went to the mall and ran some errands.  By the time I got home, my back was KILLING me.  I've realized I can't spend so much time walking.
  • Oh, and I am definitely showing, but I still feel like I just look fat and not pregnant.

We dog-sat Jason and Nathan's two dogs this weekend.  Shiloh loves her cousins!

And only 6 more weeks 'til the beginning of the college football season.  We are both anxiously waiting!  I caught Scott watching old Georgia football clips.
