18 Weeks and Counting!

Dear Baby Cakes, You are 18 weeks old tomorrow! Rest up little one as tomorrow is a big day for all of us! We have an appointment for your next ultra sound and we will finally know if you are a boy or a girl!

Word on the street has it that the pads on your finger tips and toes are now formed and your finger prints are developing nicely. You are roughly 5.5 inches and weigh 7.5 ounces. Your ears work well and I'm sure you hear all kinds of sounds these days. There is no way you can miss those silly siblings of yours because you can't miss that racket! They are so excited to meet you and often hug my belly.

You kick, swallow and sleep. You are definitely a mover and a shaker! I notice the most movement between 8 PM and 11:30 PM. I can't determine if it is because I am generally more still and things are more quiet during this time or if you are just a night owl!

Your heart now pumps between 25 and 30 quarts of blood per day. Keep up the good work and strengthen your precious heart! You'll need it to hold all of the love we have for you <3

On the B Side: I am so thankful for the opportunity our family has to experience this together. We love thinking about you, talking about you and trying to patiently wait for your birthday! You bring much excitement and anticipation to our little family so thank you for giving us yet another reason to come together. We sure do love you already!! xxox
