And we're officially caught up!

So you are finally (almost) all caught up on my pregnancy journey so far! I am lumping 17 and 18 weeks into one post because I didn't write anything last week. I did take the weekly photo though. Soon I am going to attempt to take nicer weekly photos, preferably not self portraits in the bathroom at work... haha. Which means I will have to start taking them on Sundays, when I change weeks on Tuesdays. I'm sure that's not going to make a huge difference :)

Anyways we had a good weekend in our house! On Saturday we hosted a little poker game which was tons of fun, even if I didn't win... sad face... I made homemade pizza and had chips and candy and everyone seemed to have a great time. I'm definitely going to be posting the pizza dough recipe because it's totally worth sharing. Since I am still trying to get back into the swing of things, blogging wise, I took no pictures. Boo!

Ok, enough small talk, here's my update for this week!

How far along?:  18 weeks (plus some notes from 17 weeks)

Total weight gain/loss:  I finally checked and at 18 weeks I am up 13 pounds. That doesn't seem as bad as I thought!!

The Bump:   At 17 weeks, on two different occasions, 2 different people offered me their seat on the bus, so suffice to say, I think the public can tell I am carrying a little bambino, and haven't just eaten too many donuts!!

What I’m excited about/looking forward to:  Our next ultrasound is next Monday and we're going to find out the gender!!! Wohoo!!

Symptoms:  Still not feeling great, but there are more days of feeling good than days of feeling nauseous. I'm still super tired though, and if I push myself too much I start feeling sick. It's definitely getting much better though, I've actually been up off the couch and contributing to the household... haha. My poor husband is so relieved!!
Belly Button in or out?:   It's in, but it's very shallow. I'm predicting it'll pop out at some point.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Honestly, nothing in either category really, which is awesome! That should help control my weight gain, especially being able to eat veggies again.

Milestones: We had an appointment at 17 weeks and my midwife found the little heartbeat right away! It was good and strong. My husband couldn't come with me so I took a video of it, which ended up being awesome because I sent it to my sister and my parents :) Plus I listen to it several times a day!!

Here are the phots, and yes, I am wearing the exact same outfit in both... I only have so many maternity clothes and this top and sweater are my favorite :)

Wow you're nearly halfway through then. I'd be glad of no cravings as if it were me I'd have to satisfy them
