18 Week Bumpdate!

How far along? 18 Weeks (although this picture makes me look more like 28....I only ate one bowl of chili before this I promise! Also please don't mind the way I look. I had just cleaned the kitchen and when I ask Mike to take these pics for me I get one shot to get it right before he's moved onto something else!)

Maternity clothes? This is a maternity shirt from Old Navy! I can still wear regular tops, they are just getting shorter and shorter every day.

Sleep: Last night I didn't sleep well at all. Mainly because lately I wake up around 2 am STARVING and I can't fall back asleep because all I can think about is what I'll eat for breakfast the next day.

Best moment this week: As I'm typing this I'm waiting for my mom to come pick me up so we can get some coffee and await the arrival of my nephew, Jameson!!!! He's arriving via C-section later this morning EEEKKK!!!!

Miss Anything? WINE!!! and deli meat surprisingly.....veggie subs at Subway are getting kind of old.

Movement: YES! Especially when I'm laying down, ready to relax at night. She's like a baby gymnast in there!

Food cravings: Ice cream, Sour Patch Kids (as always), cookie dough iced coffee from Dunkins

Anything making you queasy or sick: Quesy-ness is GONE! So bring on the food...unless there's garlic in it!! BLAHH!

Gender: Baby GIRL Scarlett:)

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In but officially have removed the belly button ring. I hadn't seen my belly button in 13 years and Mike had NEVER seen it before! Feels very strange!

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: Overall happy

Looking forward to: Meeting Jameson this afternoon:)


  1. You look adorable in these photos! :) Congratulations on your new nephew.

    Also, I love that you're craving all sweets. SO AM I, especially SPK's...hopefully that means girl for me too :)

  2. You do NOT look 28 weeks! I am a few days short of 28 weeks. I can show you what 28 weeks looks like haha and that little bump is no where near it :)
    That's about how long it was for me having my belly button ring in also. It's weird at first not having it there. Now I have a little dark mark on my stomach.

  3. Hey Shannon!! Omg, its going to be a girl!! That's fantastic- congratulations! :D And trust me, if I hadn't known you were just cleaning I would have never thought that. You look fabulous my dear! ;) xx


  4. super cute! love your belly!
