18 Weeks With Daphne Grace

How far along? 18 Weeks
Baby is the size of a:  Bell Pepper


Total weight gain: Still 0

Stretch marks? Nope.

Baby Development: Daphne’s nerves are growing their protective covering this week! Her blood vessels are visible through her skin and she has all her reproductive organs!

Best moment this week: Hearing Daphne Grace’s heartbeat! She has a strong little ticker. This week was a whirlwind! I couldn’t even tell you what we had for dinner last night.

Movement:  Daphne Grace is moving like crazy! I never remember Winnie J moving like this.
Food cravings: I’m super proud of myself! This week was craving free and I ate super clean.

Miss Anything? Wine was hard to resist this week.


Symptoms: I felt SO good this week! No pain or headaches! I think the second trimester energy has hit and I could not be more grateful!

Belly Button in or out? OUT!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on!

Mood? Focused. Trying to prep for the end of the school year!

Winifred Update: I swear I have the most fun kid in the world. When we are home, she has very little interest in her toys! All she wants to do is whatever Will and I are doing. She is a great helper with the laundry. She’ll take clothes out of the bin and hand them to us to fold. She loves to ride the bin back and forth to the laundry room! Her favorite “toys” are remotes, cups, and car keys! She has developed this fake “laugh” taught to her by her lovely father and it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. Winnie J enjoys her outside time more than anything! She got super sick this weekend. It was heartbreaking to see her so miserable but I didn’t hate all the snuggles. STILL WAITING FOR TEETH.



Looking forward to: Car Shopping! This momma needs a new car if I’m gonna be hauling around 2 tiny humans!

  2. Oh my goodness!! No teeth yet? Will’s girl for sure on that one. .I thought for a while I’d have to figure out some baby dentures for him lol, but it didn’t stop him from eating. .He used to LOVE cinnamon toast and the cinnamon would chap his sweet pink baby cheeks, haha. .he was also really late losing teeth — never got to mark the tooth chart in K or 1st grade and by second grade his teachers stopped keeping the chart, poor kid!
