18 Weeks

How far along? 18 weeks
Baby Baker is the size of: A Sweet Potato (5.6 inches long and 6.7 oz).
Food I want in my belly: Not gonna lie…BLT sandwich with a pickle on the side was for dinner twice this past week…guess this is still in the lead.
Food I want nowhere near me: Nothing new…
Baby Prep To Do: Try and schedule some day care tours for next week since I have a day off from work.
Highlight of the week: This weekend was our annual family Italian sausage party. Growing up my uncles and grandfather would make sausage for the year. It was always a chance for the family to get together. About 3 years ago, my brother, Tim and all my cousins started this tradition back up again. The equipment we use is over 100 years old. It was great seeing most the family together again.  
Exercise regimen: Crossfit x 4; walked total of 1 mile
Maternity Clothes:  Same as last week…still wearing regular work clothes…but using my Be Band which allows me to leave my pants unbuttoned and it covers your belly like maternity pants would. I am also able to use some of my older clothes which are a size bigger.
Baby Gender: One more week to go!!!
Pregnancy Symptoms: Heart burn has reared its ugly head again…
 Item(s) I could not live without: My books about pregnancy and baby apps for my phone. It is pretty neat that what they say about symptoms is normally spot on.
Anything else worth mentioning? We have our anatomy ultrasound this week so we will get to see how much Baby Baker has grown over the last 5 weeks.

  1. Wow, I can hardly wait to hear about Baby Baker! There is a great deal of anticipation in the Lofton Household!
    Your sausage making made me think of when mom & dad made sausage, but it was old southern pork sausage.
