18 week Bump Update

Finally getting around to doing weekly bump updates!  I'll post 19 weeks in a couple days... running a bit behind. :) 

How Far Along? 18 weeks 2 days
Size of Baby? About 5 1/2 inches... length of a bell pepper
Maternity Clothes? Loving them!  I'm officially unable to wear any of my original jeans, but I'm not complaining cause the maternity clothes are so comfy!  I'll need an intervention to get me out after the baby arrives. :)
Stretch Marks? None! 
Sleep? I get tired as soon as I get home from work.  But then I get a second wind around 8pm.  Other than that I've been ok.  
Food Cravings? Nothing new this week. Still loving any fruit I can get my hands on. :)
What I Miss: Sleeping on my belly!!!  Oh my gosh.. it's so hard to sleep on my side. 
What I'm Looking Forward To: Matt being able to feel the baby kick too.
Symptoms?  Just very low back pain... more pelvic pain.  I had to cave and purchase a support belt that helps keep me stable when I'm walking around doing stuff at home.  Its really been helping. 
Movement?  Yes...and getting more frequent each day.
Belly Button In or Out? I'm naturally a halfy... so it's still that way.
Labor Signs? None yet.. so that must be a good thing. 
Best Moment of the Week? Legit kicks started earlier this week.  I had been feeling the light flutters, but one day I was sitting there at my desk and felt a jab.  It made me laugh... still too soft for Matt to feel though.
Weekly Wisdom: "It's best to paint my own nails now while I still can."
