Baby Green Pickle: Week 18

Why we are calling this Baby "Green Pickle"... Nathaniel would like to name the baby "Green Lantern" if it's a boy and "Pickle" if it's a girl.

How far along... 18 weeks

Baby Green Pickle is the size of... a bell pepper; almost 7 ounces and 5.5 inches long.

Total weight gain... +7 lbs

Maternity clothes... bottoms: yes; tops: not yet.

Stretch Marks... haven't notice new ones besides from my first pregnancy.

Sleep... lots of tossing and turning and waking up in blocks of 3-4 hours for potty break.

Best moment this week... amusement park day with family and a friend.

Miss anything... sushi.

Movement... little butterfly flutters! But nothing consistent yet.

Food cravings... cooked sushi.

Anything making me queasy or sick... meat. I cannot stand the smell and taste of chicken, beef and especially pork.

Have you started to show yet... yes. But mostly, I look more fat than pregnant.

Gender... We're waiting to find out if we'll have a Green Lantern or a Pickle :)

Labor signs... none.

Belly button in or out... in

Wedding rings on or off... wedding ring on; engagement ring off (it's a half size smaller)

Happy or moody most of the time... happy.

Looking forward to... Nathaniel's school pictures this week!


  1. Aww you look wonderful! Great photo of you, Nathaniel, and Baby Green Pickle ;). I love that he has named the baby, how cute! It's also fun that we're only about 2 weeks apart in our pregnancies. Thanks for sharing!!
