18 Weeks Pregnant

This pregnancy has not gotten the attention it deserves (from me, anyway!) It really goes by so much faster with the second. We're almost halfway there - well, assuming baby is on time, which I am not assuming!


I was not this big until probably 26ish weeks with Russell! My goodness!

Pregnancy Info:

Size of Baby: Baby #2 is as big as a sweet potato
Clothes: Living in maternity, pretty much since 12 weeks.
Movement: I felt the first kick while laying out in Jamaica - pretty awesome! I feel them here and there but this baby is not nearly as active as Russell was (or maybe I was just paying closer attention with Russell).
Sleep: I am SO TIRED. It would help if Russell was sleeping better!
What I miss: Honestly, a glass of wine here or there. And caffeine.
Cravings: They've subsided a bit - it was spicy foods for a while (salsa especially).
Symptoms: Mainly just tired; oh, and this huge belly I have.

We find out in 4 days (Monday) if Russell gets a little brother or a little sister! I can't wait!!

For the doctor's appointment, we are getting our first paid babysitter ever for Russell. It's a high schooler we know from church and I trust her completely. We've been so blessed to have family and friends watch him up to now, but I felt like I was imposing on them a little too much.

Oh, and here's a picture of the big bro from dinner last night:


He was cracking himself up by looking at me and talking to me through his bowl. What a silly kid!

  1. Great to hear about your pregnancy, Jennifer.

    Russell is SO adorable! I think he'll be a great big brother/sister.

    Can't wait to find out the gender of your little one!!

    Hope you have a great day,
