My 18 weeks baby

My pregnancy: 18 weeks

How your baby's growing:

Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) 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. See what your baby looks like this week. Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. Our information is designed to give you a general idea of your baby's development.

How your life's changing:

Hungry? An increase in appetite is pretty common about now. Make it count by choosing meals and snacks that are rich in nutrients instead of empty calories (chips, French fries, candy, and other sweets). Bigger, more comfortable clothes are a must now as your appetite and waistline grow. Your cardiovascular system is undergoing dramatic changes, and during this trimester your blood pressure will probably be lower than usual. Don't spring up too fast from a lying or sitting position or you might feel a little dizzy. From now on, when you do lie down, it's best to lie on your side — or at least partly tilted to one side. (When you lie flat on your back, your uterus can compress a major vein, leading to decreased blood return to your heart.) Try placing a pillow behind you or under your hip or upper leg for comfort. If you haven't already had a second-trimester ultrasound, you'll probably have one soon. This painless procedure helps your practitioner check how your baby's growing, screen for certain birth defects, check the placenta and umbilical cord, determine whether the due date you're working with is accurate, and see how many babies you're carrying. During the exam, you might see your baby moving around or sucking his thumb. Bring your partner along, and be sure to ask for a printout for your baby's first photo album!
Afternoon energy booster "If you're finding it hard to get through the afternoon at work without a little nap, find a place you can escape for 15 to 20 minutes (close your office door, use a conference room, even sit in your car). Bring a small travel alarm clock and set it for 15 minutes." — Laura

Bila Ibu Boleh Memilih ps: notes for my babys.. (someday if they read it..they will be know how much i love them..)
Anakku... Bila ibu boleh memilih Apakah ibu berbadan langsing atau berbadan besar karena mengandungmu Maka ibu akan memilih mengandungmu? Karena dalam mengandungmu ibu merasakan keajaiban dan kebesaran Allah Sembilan bulan nak... Engkau hidup di perut ibu Engkau ikut kemanapun ibu pergi Engkau ikut merasakan ketika jantung ibu berdetak karena kebahagiaan Engkau menendang rahim ibu ketika engkau merasa tidak nyaman, karena ibu kecewa dan berurai air mata Anakku... Bila ibu boleh memilih apakah ibu harus operasi caesar, atau ibu harus berjuang melahirkanmu Maka ibu memilih berjuang melahirkanmu Karena menunggu dari jam ke jam, menit ke menit kelahiranmu Adalah seperti menunggu antrian memasuki salah satu pintu surga Karena kedahsyatan perjuanganmu untuk mencari jalan ke luar ke dunia sangat ibu rasakan Dan saat itulah kebesaran Allah menyelimuti kita berdua Malaikat tersenyum diantara peluh dan erangan rasa sakit, Yang tak pernah bisa ibu ceritakan kepada siapapun Dan ketika engkau hadir, tangismu memecah dunia Saat itulah... saat paling membahagiakan Segala sakit & derita sirna melihat dirimu yang merah, Mendengarkan ayahmu mengumandangkan adzan, Kalimat syahadat kebesaran Allah dan penetapan hati tentang junjungan kita Rasulullah di telinga mungilmu Anakku... Bila ibu boleh memilih apakah ibu berdada indah, atau harus bangun tengah malam untuk menyusuimu, Maka ibu memilih menyusuimu, Karena dengan menyusuimu ibu telah membekali hidupmu dengan tetesan-tetesan dan tegukan tegukan yang sangat berharga Merasakan kehangatan bibir dan badanmu didada ibu dalam kantuk ibu, Adalah sebuah rasa luar biasa yang orang lain tidak bisa rasakan Anakku... Bila ibu boleh memilih duduk berlama-lama di ruang rapat Atau duduk di lantai menemanimu menempelkan puzzle Maka ibu memilih bermain puzzle denganmu Tetapi anakku... Hidup memang pilihan... Jika dengan pilihan ibu, engkau merasa sepi dan merana Maka maafkanlah nak... Maafkan ibu... Maafkan ibu... Percayalah nak, ibu sedang menyempurnakan puzzle kehidupan kita, Agar tidak ada satu kepingpun bagian puzzle kehidupan kita yang hilang Percayalah nak... Sepi dan ranamu adalah sebagian duka ibu Percayalah nak... Engkau adalah selalu menjadi belahan nyawa ibu...
