Baby McGahen: 18 Weeks

How far along: 18 weeks + 1 days

Gender: Boy

How big is baby: the size of an artichoke

Coolest developments: Feeling tiny little flutters

Best moments this week: I had my anatomy scan and got to see the little guy again. He looks like an actual baby now!

How I've felt in my workouts: Definitely improved. Haven't had the stabbing back pain in over a week now.

Symptoms: Stuffy nose, nose bleed, round ligament pain in abdomen

Cravings: Nothing really specific this week

Aversions: Nothing this week

Favorite meals this week: Greek salad + chicken, again

Things we bought for baby: A little stuffed bear toy for his mountain-themed room (that we haven't started working on yet)

Bump: The only non-maternity shorts/pants I can wear are stretchy athletic ones and ones that used to be way too big in the waist for me.

What we're up to: Studying for my corrective exercise test.

Prayer Requests: BolderBoulder on Memorial Day. I just hope to be able to finish it without lower back pain. I anticipate walking up the hills.
