    How far along are you? 18 weeks, 1 day

    How big is baby? The size of a sweet potato or a can of Pop? 

    Appointments coming up? One week away from the Anatomy scan (Sept 11)!! EEEE!! I can't wait to find out =D

    How are you feeling emotionally/physically? Emotionally, I've been doing pretty good. I've been keeping busy with cleaning and what-not. Physically, most things feel alright. I've been the usual tired and one thing I've noticed lately is me getting light-headed when I get up to fast from a squatting position or sitting up in bed. I have to take my time. 

    What's the next milestone you're looking forward to? The anatomy scan next Monday!! =D

    Rants/Raves/Questions: 
    Rant: My belly is not really showing all that much yet, but my in-laws keep touching it (including my FIL, which is really weird. 0_o ) STOP TOUCHING MY BELLY!!! 
    Rave: I'm getting my hair done tomorrow FINALLY!! I'm so happy because my roots are about 2 inches long and my haircut has pretty much grown out to be so ugly that I've been wearing my hair up in a ponytail most of this summer. The last time I got it done was before I got my BFP at the end of May. I was waiting for us to have more money and I was waiting for the 2nd trimester to be extra safe. I will finally feel like myself again! Also, I've been feeling my LO moving quite a bit at night. It's really cool =D My DH was even able to feel some movement by putting his hand on my belly last night. He was really excited about that. 

    GTKY: What did you do with your extended Labor Day weekend? I hope everyone has had a fun and relaxing time! Most of this weekend has consisted of us working on drywall in one of the extra bedrooms (with the help of my husband's best friend and most likely the Godfather of our little bundle of joy). I haven't really committed to calling it "the baby's room" yet because I guess I'm afraid I'll jinx the pregnancy or something. We should be done with sanding by the end of the day today (don't worry, I won't be doing any sanding! My husband is in charge of that portion. I'm sealing him in the room with plastic taped around the door and taping plastic all over elsewhere just to be extra sure). Yesterday evening, my husband and I did go see U2 and Beck, which was really awesome, too. So, I guess it hasn't all been hard work. =P

    How big is baby? size of a poker chip (or lime?)

    Appointments coming up? Nope. Not til the 18th.

    How are you feeling emotionally/physically? Emotionally, a little better since I'm not so anxious about eating anymore. But, I have my moody moments. I'm still tired but trying to get a little bit done. Still feel so unproductive.

    What's the next milestone you're looking forward to? Mmm. Hearing the baby again? That's all I can think of since I want to say delivery and that's 6-7 months away. I'm a little anxious about sharing the news once I start showing. I really don't want people (randoms) to keep talking to me about it and asking questions. If I could go through the pregnancy unnoticed, that would be great.

    Rants/Raves/Questions: My rant is the fact that there are so many things I can't do...even if I wanted to do them. LOL. Like, weed in the garden.

    GTKY: What did you do with your extended Labor Day weekend? I hope everyone has had a fun and relaxing time! I spent the weekend with friends for one of their birthdays. Now I'm trying to swap summer and winter clothes but zzzzzzzzzz.
