Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain...Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.

18 weeks

How far along: 18 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: not exactly sure, but if I had to guess +5 pounds
Maternity clothes:  Kyle took me to Target and I got a few things.  Rubber band trick is just about impossible.
Sleep:  could use a lot more - 5 o'clock alarm clock seems to feel earlier and earlier.
Best moment this week: well technically this happened a little over a week ago, but finding out the gender takes the cake this month!  I also have to say hearing Kyle pray for Eliza by name has been a huge blessing.
Movement: flutters are still infrequent but obvious when they do occur.
Cravings: still anything healthy and fresh. I crave a couple of oranges a day.
Gender: Baby girl
Labor Signs: not a one
Belly Button in our out? still in
What I miss: don't miss a thing.
What am I looking forward to? watching Kyle be a Dad
Weekley Wisdom: buy a heating pad
Milestones: Finding out the gender - and deciding on her name.
A few things around the house these days...
