4 months and almost halfway there!

Happy February and month of Love! See that little tummy?  It's not just from cookies anymore! :o)

How far along? 18 weeks- almost halfway! 
Baby's size? 
A bell pepper! Not much bigger than a peach, really- about 5.5 inches, 7 oz.

Maternity clothes? Yep! Some of my shirts are getting too tight/ short to cover the bump, and I mostly wear the pants cuz it's just more comfy! And comfy is never overrated when you're pregnant.
Sleep: I'm having more trouble falling asleep, and I wake up to shift sides since I'm too big to sleep on my back now :o(

Best moment(s) this past month: Our trip to California was such a great time! Lots of family, friends (shout outs to Martha and James, Savannah and Kelly, Uncle Del and Aunt Roxanne, and Laurel for being such great hosts, babysitters, tour guides, and/or bed and breakfasts! :o), and cool places to see! Highlights included beaches, Monterrey Bay Aquarium, and Disney- all firsts for Simon! And we got a half day date at Disneyland thanks to Aunt Roxanne- yay!
Miss Anything? Back to wanting to eat runny eggs- so so good with toast! And eating all the batters (brownie, cake, cookie...) Also, being able to take meds- I'm having more migraines this time, and they're kicking my butt!

Movement: Some little movements here and there, but not too much yet.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not too much now (I can eat cereal again!), but I got queasy with asparagus today- so random and so sad!
Cravings: Lots of sweets! But those trigger the migraines :o( Also still loving the homemade egg McMuffins!

Labor Signs: Nope.

Gender: So soon!! We find out February 17! Though my mom, Nathan, and previous roommate Christa are very much rooting for/ already decided that it's a girl :o)

Symptoms: More headaches this week, some hip pain, but I have more energy! Yay 2nd trimester!
Belly Button in or out? In still.

Wedding rings on or off? On! 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Back and forth- I just started a new job, which is stressful just by itself, but this week is going really well, so I'm hoping we're on the up and up! It also doesn't hurt that it's beautiful weather in Austin (70-80 degrees and sunny! you keep the snow, I'll take spring 8 months a year!)
Looking forward to:Finding out the baby's gender, having some down time from trips, and a San Antonio trip to Sea World with some amazing friends (thanks Peter and Angie!)
