18 Weeks and Counting!

How far along? 18 weeks today.
Total weight gain: >1 lb. The doctor told me she was going to round it up to one pound but it was somewhere between .5 - 1.0 lbs. I will take it! I can't believe I made it 18 weeks and have only gained one pound!!
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants, my shirts, and a lot of dresses.
Stretch marks? No new ones! ;)
Sleep: I toss and turn all night, but sleep just fine.
Best moment this week: Hearing our nugget's heartbeat today.
Miss anything? Nope, not right now!
Movement: Finally, yes. Feeling him or her for about a week now! 
Food cravings: no cravings...but, nothing really ever sounds good. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not any more!
Gender: I had a dream recently that the doctor texted me and told me that the baby was a girl. I cried hysterically - not in a good way. But, I have no idea if this baby is a girl or a boy. Cullen and Noah both think it is a girl. They refer to the baby as a her, or "Baby Sister". I keep telling them both that it is going to be very unfortunate when their "Baby Sister" has a penis.
Labor Signs: NADA.  I've had some mild cramping and sharp pains every once in awhile, but nothing serious.  And, according to my doctor, I'm 1cm dilated, 0% effaced and -3 station - WTF?!!!!
Symptoms: lots of movement, increased appetite.
Belly Button in or out? In...I think it will actually stay that way!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Blissfully Happy!
Looking forward to: Talking baby names with the hubby!
