Week 18 update (Oct 18 - 25, 2009)

How far along? 18 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: So far, around 5-6 kilos.. Will know for sure next week in my monthly OB checkup.
Maternity clothes? Still wearing mom's clothes, mostly her dresses and jumpers =)
Stretch marks? Nothing yet! Starting to use Mark & Spencer's White Peach and Almond lotion on my belly. My sis-in-law said to use olive oil but it's just so icky for me! And body butter, another highly recommended anti-stretch mark agent, is too expensive -_-
Sleep: is sooo good! =)
Best moment this week: FEELING OUR BABY KICK FOR THE FIRST TIME! Been feeling flutters for the past weeks and finally, last Oct 23, our sweet baby kicked me real hard! It thoroughly surprised me and made me & hubby quite delirious with excitement ^_^
Movement: See above! =) On a sidenote, Labsie felt the baby kick on Oct 24. We poked my abdomen til our baby kicked back with hubby's hand on my belly. His face when he felt the kick was priceless! ♥ ♥ ♥
Food cravings: Jollibee!! Anything fastfood with loads of trans fat and msg :p
Gender: I think I want a girl so I can give her pretty pink stuff! But I also want a boy coz that's what my parents and hubby want.. TORN!
Labor Signs: None! Though I felt my uterus contracting at times..
Belly Button in or out? Still in but is shallow!
What I miss: A "non-active" abdomen! While it was wonderful to feel our baby kick, it feels very weird to feel a kick from INSIDE me. Alien feeling!!
What I am looking forward to: Our monthly OB checkup next week! Wanna know badly our baby's sex so we can buy color-coordinated baby stuff already..
Weekly Wisdom: Share pregnancy moments with your hubby! It's bonding time for both of you and he can get to "bond" with baby too. Don't leave him out in your greatest journey as a woman!
Milestones: Feeling our baby kick! Simply awesome! =)
