Levi Miles Granger

So we finally picked his name! We have liked Levi from the start but needed to use it with this little baby and make sure it fit. A few months before I got pregnant, DR was driving home from work listening to a sermon and he heard the pastor talking about the tribes of 'Levi' and he called me right then and said that he had found the name of our future son. Miles doesn't have any significance other than the fact that it seemed to fit. I also am for sure feeling him move and kick. Last night I was laying in bed and he gave me two big kicks in a row. I can press on my stomach when he is moving and he will sometimes kick back. It's awesome!

Also I wanted to post the 18 week pictures!

18 weeks

I had the stomach bug last week so I didn't do a 17 week update! Pictures will come!
How Far along? 18 weeks

Size of the Baby? a sweet potato!

Maternity Clothes? Yes :)

Gender? little BOY!

Movement? Yes! I am sure now that it is him moving. Last night I was laying in bed and would press my stomach and then would see him move back. Amazing!
Sleep? Good! He has moved up off of my bladder so less bathroom breaks :)

Cravings? Still chocolate milk!!

Symptoms? I feel pretty good, besides the fact that I can feel my stomach stretching. Very strange

What I miss? well I have been missing Michelob Ultra but I have discovered that Odouls is really not a bad substitute for now!

Milestones? feeling him move! its sooo crazy!!

Weight Gain? 6 lbs

What I’m excited about? Our next appt Dec 27th!!!

Baby Center Update for Week 18:

Head to rump, your baby is about 6 inches long and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.

16 week pictures

Thought I would try to do some each week (TRY) and see the change…I dont think there is much of one this week, except my stomach is more firm, when I lay flat I can for sure feel the hard bump of little baby…

Weight Gain? 4 lbs

What I’m excited about? Feeling him move for sure the first time!

Baby Center Update for Week 16:

Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.
