18 Weeks (Bump #2)

Total Weight Gain: 9 lbs.  Yay for no weight gain this week, and considering we just celebrated Thanksgiving, I consider that a big success!

Symptoms: Feel pretty great this week!  I had a bit of a cold, but that wasn't pregnancy related.

Movement: Feeling the baby move every day!  Can't wait 'til I can feel those kicks from the outside!

Gender Predictions:  We're just over a week away from finding out, and I'm back to thinking boy.  I had a very vivid dream that it was a boy, so the dream total is Boy 2 vs. Girl 1.  However, I'm still buying clothes like we are having a girl, so there's that!

Purchases:  Snagged myself a Freshly Picked Carryall at their Black Tuesday sale!  It's a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I'm hoping it will work as a diaper bag!

Sleep?  A little bit of insomnia still, and sleeping on my stomach is officially uncomfortable.

Food Cravings/Aversions:  Fruit & sweets!  I have been devouring ten packs of Pez candy lately!

Staying Active?  3 workouts in this week, even with a holiday thrown in there.  Feeling pretty good about this.  Trying to find time to workout while taking care of toddler has proven to quite difficult.  Very different than being on my own schedule with my first pregnancy.

Cries: Oh yeah, a big one!  I'll elaborate more later when I share a post about finding our Christmas tree, but emotions got the best of me and tears were literally streaming down my face!

Liam's Thoughts:  Not much talk about the baby this week; we've too busy with so much holiday fun!

Looking Forward to: Santa photos with Liam!  You can see last years here.  I'm hoping to sneak my bump in there, we'll see...
