18 Weeks

Things are going well! Have energy for the most part. Walking or running and lifting a bit. Crazy week at work with Parent/Teacher conferences and other night meetings for work.

 How far along: 18 weeks.

Total weight gain:  7 lbs.

What I love: Planning our Guess the Gender Party and sending out the invite!

Worries: Feeling overwhelmed after baby is born 

Sleep: I wake up every night around 3AM....that sucks....

Best moment of the week: Getting through my crazy week and people are noticing my belly!

Food cravings: Fruit

Food aversions: 

Baby’s Movement: None yet

The belly:  Getting bigger especially at the end of the day. 

My Movement: Walk and run during week and have a warrior weekend planned...

Milestones:  Figuring out my maternity leave. With my expected due date I would have three weeks to go back to work. However, we decided that I don't have to go back to work until next school year, which for me starts early August and the baby will be about 4 months old. 

Symptoms: A little insomnia and can't eat big meals. 

Gender: My appointment was October 17th and I have a sealed envelope with the answer!!! I plan to take it to the bakery to make us a cake with either pink or blue on the inside. 

What I’m looking forward to: When we cut the cake at the party and find out the gender in front of our close friends and family!

What I miss: Wine, staying up late and training hard for a fall race. 

Next appt: December 2

Due Date: March 23

Baby Coates!

Little Feet!
