18 weeks- gender reveal

How far along? 18 Weeks 
Total weight gain:  12 lbs. 
Maternity clothes? Nope. This weekend I did have to clean out my closet of all things that I know for a fact will not be seen at least for 8 months, so so sad. 
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Had some trouble with a migraine during the 17th week that had my sleep patterns off, little headaches here and there, and the belly has been growing so sleep has been a bit uncomfortable this week.
Best moment this week: We found out that we are having a GIRL!!  

Miss Anything? Going out to the bars with the friends for Cinco de Mayo this past weekend. Sat at home alone. :(
Movement: fluttering comes and goes.
Food cravings: Pickles, pasta with just Parmesan and butter, and Capri Suns (???)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really anymore. Amazing.

Labor Signs: No 
Belly Button in or out?
In although it doesn't seem as deep as it used to...
Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy! Just been a little uncomfortable as my belly has begun to grow quite more significantly than before.
Looking forward to: finishing the nursery and buying clothes!

Notes about gender reveal: First thing out of Hub's mouth when we were told it was a girl was an expletive... he then made the lab tech double check. I cried out of pure amazement... err, that and hormones. 
Katie and Jenny work at St. Vincent's and met us outside of the doctor's office wearing their PINK scrubs. I then called Dad on the way to my favorite store, Swaddle, where we bought her baby book as well as a few girly items to use to reveal her gender to our moms. Afterwards, we ate lunch at Momma Goldberg's where Chris complained about parking, the food, the atmosphere, everything. I honestly think it was all too much for him and he still had GIRL on the brain. We then went to Blades and told Lisa- who about fell out of her chair (this is the first girl for their family!). I had to go the rest of the day holding it in from my mom, who we surprised at her birthday dinner with pink cupcakes. It was a very happy day as we not only found out we are having a baby girl, but she looks great and healthy, which is all we can really ask for.
