Mommy Moments Linky Party

And we are back for week 2 of the Mommy Moments Link up! Thank you to everyone who participated last week. It was a great turn out for my first party:) I LOVED reading all of your mommy moment posts. I learned a lot about what I have to look forward to in just a few short months!
The post with the most views from last week was One of those days by Natassia at Nat's Knapsack

"This is what a bottle of baby powder looks like when in the hands on a toddler."
Thanks for linking up Natassia!

Now here is my update for week 18!

How far along: 18 weeks
Movement:  I felt the baby kick for the first time on Wednesday night! It has been the best part of being pregnant so far:) I LOVE it!
Weight Gain:  Still working on getting up to my pre-pregnancy weight. All that throwing up really threw me off. I'm getting there though!
Maternity Clothes:  I still haven't worn any maternity clothes yet. Although, I can't button all of my pants/shorts, I've been using the hair tie trick. It's worked out pretty well so far! I've been on the look out for deals though...
Stretch Marks:  None yet
Best moment of my week:  Feeling the baby kick
Worst moment: Now it's a funny story, but at the time it wasn't funny at all. I was applying to be a transcriber so I could make a little money from home. It required taking a 3 hour test copying down information from this recording. 
Well, while I was copying the information down, my doctor called me about a breast feeding class. I immediately wrote the information down on the open document on my computer (the test) and intended on deleting it later. Well, I'm sure you can guess what happened. Yup! I sent in the test with all sorts of breast feeding information at the bottom. Don't think I'm going to get that job!

Sleep:  Not the same anymore! I wake up to pee at least once a night...and my dreams are pretty crazy lately!
Miss Anything:  caffeine and lunch meat...
Food Cravings: Popcorn, ice cream and chocolate....I should be gaining weight with all that right?
Aversions:  Anything when I'm nauseous
Gender Prediction:  We both think girl, but don't really have a good reason. We will know for sure next Monday! 
Labor signs:  Nope
Belly Button: It's poppin' out:)
Rings:  On
Moody or Happy: This week I've been pretty stressed and frustrated with a lot going on. Over all though, I've been pretty happy!
Looking Forward:  Finding out if it's a boy or a girl next Monday. Stay tuned and I will let y'all know!

There you have it! That's my pregnancy in a nutshell. This week, I haven't had the chance to take a real baby bump picture, so I got creative and found this picture that shows off the bump just a little;) Gotta love them tractors!
