18 Weeks

I wonder if this is going to ever start feeling real?  I still feel like I am living in a dream. Well, ok, the vomiting is very real but it's still hard to believe there is a baby growing inside of me. I've spent so long feeling like it's never going to be my turn that it's just so hard to believe that it IS my turn. Here are a few updates:

Baby Names: We have NONE!  We have tossed around a few that we sort of like but nothing we love - feel free to send us your suggestions

Movement: Not feeling anything just yet. I can hear her moving on the doppler but definitely don't feel it when she does (it's still weird saying she!)

Body changes: I swear the sterile gloves I wear to catch babies are already starting to feel snug. My danskos feel tight too. Pregnancy is full of changes. My husband commented this week that my belly is starting to look more and more like a baby (rather that a growing too much ice cream belly).

Brennan: We are trying to get her used to the idea of sharing her mama. She likes to say "no! my mama!!". Today at school she was caring for one of the teachers 10 month old son. Talking to him, feeding him, etc. According to the teacher she was being a great little mommy. I think she will be an awesome big helper. 

Here is the newest belly pic. Baby snowflake is around 5 1/2 inches long, has hiccups and yawns. I'm excited to figure out a name for this little girl.
