18 weeks!

Skirt / Old Navy jersey knit fold-over in turquoise
Shirt / Converse not maternity, but a larger size

How far along? 18 weeks

Weight gain: My scale is still broken, but I'd say I've gained another pound or so! The baby is 5 ounces

Maternity clothes? Yes, definitely. My belly has officially gone from, "Ehh, she could be pregnant or just fat. Better not ask." to "Oh how far along are you?"

Sleep: I have had one precious 2 year old wake me up to sleep with me 2 nights this week. It hasn't actually been too bad, but its not a restful night.

Best Moment This Week: Pregnancy wise: I am now feeling our boy kick and move around regularly! It is usually when I am going to sleep, waking up, or during his brother's nap when I sit still for a moment. Personally: I got picked to be on the launch team for Jen Hatmaker's new book, For the Love, which launches August 18, 2015!! Definitely the highlight of my week, which is saying a lot because we also got to get in our new house and start prepping it for move in!

Worst Moment This Week: Finding all the disgusting messes and weird junk the previous homeowner left in the house! The man apparently hadn't cleaned his toilet or microwave in months, despite the fact that I found at least 10 bottles of various cleaner in his cabinets. We also found wine glasses, a game of Jenga, some tupperware, a mountain of total crap in the garage and back porch that we are throwing away, and a VERY personal item in the master closet. I'm still recovering from the shock of how he left the home. However, it's nothing we can't clean up and put out of mind. The steam cleaners are coming tomorrow, Dillon finished painting the nursery (previous owner left about 3 inches unpainted at the top of the wall under some border that was pretty much falling off), and I have cleansed every single surface.

Miss Anything? Energy and endurance

Cravings: Cheeseburgers

Symptoms: Some stomach aches, getting very cranky if my blood sugar is low at all, feeling my muscles all start to stretch, pelvic pain, starting to waddle!

Looking Forward To: The anatomy scan! 2 more weeks. We were supposed to have it this week, but our doctor's office had a lot of weird scheduling issues and called us back 3 times to change our appointment, each time pushing it back.
