18 weeks

What a precious miracle God has blessed us with - a sweet baby girl growing in my tummy.  I am humbled to my knees by God's grace. I am so undeserving, but I am so thankful. What a mighty King we serve.  Lord help me raise these two sweet babies knowing You.  Guide us Lord in teaching them your Word and help them follow the path You set for them. I pray Lord that Luca and his little sister will be kind, humble and will serve Your Kingdom. Thank you, my precious Jesus.

Well I'm behind in documenting this pregnancy - no surprise there ha! With a 2.5 year old keeping us busy, running my two businesses and everything in between, I've seemed to neglect my weekly pictures and updates. But hopefully from here on out I will start updating again! 

Size of Baby: According to What to Expect, our baby is the size of a sweet potato! Around 5.5 inches and 5 ounces. Goodness that seems so big already!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm gaining much quicker this time than I was with Luca - I think 7lbs already!

Maternity Clothes: This pregnancy I'm actually not wearing a ton of maternity clothes - I'm wearing a lot of dresses that are roomy but not maternity. But pants and shorts - yes, all maternity!

Gender: A sweet baby GIRL!!! We are SO excited!!

Belly Button In/Out: In, but on the way out

 Stretch Marks: Not yet

Labor Signs: No

Movement: Yes, I'm feeling her kick and move on the inside, but you can't quite see it from the outside yet! Feels mostly like gas bubbles but I know it's her :)

Sleep: The last two days I've slept until 9:45am, which is unheard of nowadays since Luca wakes up usually around 7:30am. Danny says I've been extra tired this pregnancy - more so than I was with Luca!

What I miss: I really don't miss a thing. I love being pregnant!

What I am looking forward to: Our anatomy scan in two weeks!

Cravings/Aversions: McDonalds (gross I know), tons of water

Symptoms: TIRED, headaches

Best Moment This Week: Talking to Luca about his "baby sister" and thinking about names for her!
