baby bump week 18

It's time for another baby Clute update!

The belly is growing like a weed now and I am quickly running out of things to wear. I actually attempted to go shopping for maternity pants last weekend, only to end up crying over the prices and the unflattering styles (pregnancy hormones, gotta love em'!). I am off to another store this weekend that will hopefully be more reasonably priced (fingers crossed). And I ordered two cute dresses from Target which I should be getting any day! They had some great choices online and you can't beat their return policy. But until then I am making due with the belly band and leggings. I wish I could wear sweats every day, that would be the best!

So far, the second trimester really is the best. I feel great and have my mostly normal appetite back. I am not the biggest fan of fruit, I would definitely prefer a pastry, but I make sure to eat them anyways. Lunch is probably the hardest meal since all I really want is a big juicy turkey sandwich! haha. And for dinner, as long as there is rice or quinoa or pasta, I am a happy camper. I am currently addicted to honey nut cheerios and make sure to save room for a bowl as my after dinner sweet snack. So delicious! Other than that, no real crazy cravings. Matt is waiting for me to make a random, off the wall request....pickles and ice cream? bleh. French fries and ice cream = yum! haha.

Here is a week 18 belly shot of me.....

it is getting so big!

And one of Matt at 18 weeks.....

In two short weeks we will find out the sex! Stay tuned! :)
