18 weeks

I think my belly really started to bump out this week. I've found myself waking at 4 or 5am the last few mornings and the first thing I do is cradle my belly. It feels as though it has taken a while to show but now it seems my belly is making up for lost time.

I've also suddenly got the sensation that something is inside me. Maybe that sounds silly, but it's the only way I can describe it. I haven't felt much movement - except for one morning when I was lying awake and I thought I could sense a deep 'pop' in my belly, but there hasn't been any follow up. I'm so looking forward to feeling that connection.


  1. It's a lovely stage when you just start to show. A lot of your clothes still fit and I found I had a lot more energy than earlier.

  2. I am a week ahead of you and I just began feeling the beby reliably moving. Last week it was just that, a sensation and now it feels so much more clear. So amazing, no?

  3. Pregnancy sounds nuts, and wonderful. And i can't wait to experience it someday.
