18 week bumpdate August 4th

I really dislike this picture, I feel like I look fat, but its the only picture i took this week! I think its the short shirt... that shirt has been retired! LOL

How far along: 18 weeks- wow!
Total weight gain:  8.8 (umm... I am sick and I went a little crazy I THINK!!!) EEKS!
Maternity clothes:  just the belly band and dresses, my shirts are getting too short! LOL
Best moment of the week:   feeling the baby move! 
Food cravings: pizza and chips and cheese
Food aversions: nothing really. 
boobs sore- still there, way less prevelant though
cramps- not too mcuh
tiredness- I am sick, so I have hardly moved
irritability- back to normal. :)
acne- getting one or two big zits
bloat- I am going to say its all baby now. :) 
 burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- all gone!
Movement: totally! It is super sporadic and only a couple times, but I can't wait until Jordan can feel baby!!!  
Gender: We find Aug 17th
What I’m looking forward to: feeling more kicks! Seeing my baby on the ultrasound! Finding out if its a boy or girl!
 What I miss:  My energy. Being sick and pregnant, I have none!
Next appt: August 17th! Baby ultrasound and also a doctor appointment immediately after that! :)
How big is baby:
Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.
