baby update

I am 18 weeks along in my pregnancy! I had a sonogram a couple days ago and baby was moving around quite a bit and looks to be right on schedule for 18 weeks. He is actually around 8 inches long from feet to head. Eight inches looks really long to me when looking at a ruler! It's hard to believe the baby will be around 20 inches long when born.

I definitely have a small baby bump and it seems to be growing pretty quickly. Right now it feels like the baby's feet are positioned near my left ribs and his head is down by my right hip bone (what I've noticed lately is his preferred position to be in). I can feel him moving around or kicking quite often. His kicking is not hard enough to keep me up at night (at least not yet), but it lets me know he's there and moving around. It's exciting! :)
