Your Baby: Week 18Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon.
First day of week 18 and oh the fun things it has brought me. I woke up this morning with some soreness in my hips that changed to severe shooting pains down my left butt cheek and toward my knee. It lasted most of the day and has left a lingering stiffness and soreness in my left side! However there are some upsides... my bump feels harder and more pronounced than it has and my energy level is noticeably up!
