18 Weeks

I reached the 18 week mark, which also signifies the end of 4 months of pregnancy.  5 more months seems sooo long, but I know it will go by fast.  Here are recent highlights (lowlights?) at this point:

  • I first felt the baby move during Week 16.  But more recently, the movements have become stronger and more frequent.  It’s amazing!
  • I’ve gained 6 pounds so far.
  • No real cravings.  But, I’ve been eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal everyday.  I haven’t had that since I was a kid.
  • During Week 16, I developed some sort of rash on the sides of my stomach.  It’s gotten better, but comes and goes.  (This is definitely a lowlight.)
  • Yesterday, I went to the mall and ran some errands.  By the time I got home, my back was KILLING me.  I’ve realized I can’t spend so much time walking.
  • Oh, and I am definitely showing, but I still feel like I just look fat and not pregnant.

We dog-sat Jason and Nathan’s two dogs this weekend.  Shiloh loves her cousins!

And only 6 more weeks ’til the beginning of the college football season.  We are both anxiously waiting!  I caught Scott watching old Georgia football clips.

  1. I love this post! Your little belly is sooo cute, you definitely don’t look fat. That’s so exciting you’re already feeling the baby! I hope these next five months go super fast.


  2. You look a little pregnant and so cute! I hope your back doesn’t continue to hurt. Time will go fast until the last month and then it will seem to drag on..Can’t wait till the 10th..I have a pink blanket put up just in case.


  3. YAY! I’m SO excited that I was *finally* cued onto the fact that your blog is up and running with baby news!! You DEF look pregnant Ashley!! But I DO know that that is a common complaint of pregnant women who are so tiny…

    I’m hoping with Suzie that these next 5 months go by super fast for you, too! Can’t wait to hear the gender news! xoxo
