18 Weeks!

How far along?  18 weeks!
Baby Size: A bell pepper or PICKLE! 5 inches long and 7 ounces
Total weight gain/loss: 6+ lbs.
Maternity clothes?  Yup
Stretch marks?  None yet.
Sleep:  Getting up to use the bathroom at least once a night, but otherwise sleeping has been okay
Best moment this week:  Not much happened this week.  I guess continuing to research items for the registry has been fun.  
Have you told family and friends:  Yup.
Miss Anything? Energy.  I had to go to the city for work on Wednesday (aka the hottest day ever!) and I got tired so easily and I can't walk very fast anymore.
Movement:  I once again suspected that I felt some fluttering, but I'm really not sure.
Food cravings:  Saturday I decided I was in the mood for Outback Cheese Fries... so we went there for dinner :)  I have a feeling that has nothing to do with being pregnant, but rather that their cheese fries are AWESOME!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not really anymore, some colognes still sometimes bother me, but don't make me sick.
Have you started to show yet:  Some days I look more pregnant than others, depends what I'm wearing.
Gender prediction: Girl.  I want to take a poll of what everyone else thinks.  I can't wait to find out!
Labor Signs: No 

Symptoms:  I had some tightening of my uterus on Wednesday, not sure if it was just growing/expanding pains or braxton hicks, but it passed quickly.  I'm making sure I drink LOTS of water!  
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On, but I'm not sure how long that will last during the summer!
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Really happy.
Looking forward to:  Finding out the gender... I really am not a very patient person!
