18 weeks

Why doesn't anyone ever warn you of the cramping? The only time I was told you could experience cramping was if it was accompanied by blood and that most likely meant you were miscarrying. No one warned me that it's COMPLETELY NORMAL to experience cramping all throughout, and that it's just stretching of the stomach muscles and ligaments as your tummy is growing to accomodate baby. I experience this about once every 2-3 weeks, for the better part of a day. (I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty miserable.) Although I felt it pretty much ALL day this past Thursday, Friday AND Monday. I guess baby had a growth spurt. Not to worry, there was no blood.

Next week, Wednesday to be exact, we find out if Baby C is a boy or a girl!! FINALLY! I just can't handle not doing anything about it anymore. Just sitting back and doing nothing is driving me nuts. I can't wait to find out.

It's strange how my belly looks so much smaller from the side than it does from the front. Not so least not in pictures. But I don't care :)))
