Lakeon's Pregnancy Journal: Week 18

Follow Me on Pinterest

Doctor Appointments:
Nov.15-- Baby's heartbeat was 163, the nurse had trouble finding the heartbeat at first but finally found it. Baby is still closer to my spine.

Nov. 27-- NEXT APPOINTMENT! Gender ultrasound!!!
Food cravings: 

Dr. pepper is still my number one craving. Salt and vinegar chips is a close second. I recently tried the cherry limeade at sonic and I constantly want those now.

Symptoms: I still feel baby moving around a couple times a day. It jumps as if it's startled every time my daughter yells. I don't feel as much movement as other women on their second pregnancy since baby is at my back, so when I'm sitting down is when I feel movement.

Weight gain:

I'm now at 9 pounds more than pre-pregnancy weight.

Sleep: I've been getting up once a night to use the restroom, I sleep just fine. When I lay on my tummy, I can tell baby gets uncomfortable and doesn't have room so I've been sleeping on my sides more.

Dreams: I've had a dream twice that baby was a boy, once that baby was a girl.

Chloe's thoughts: Chloe went with me to the last appointment (along with my mom and sister since my husband had to work) and Chloe was very excited! She kept reassuring me that I'll be okay and the doctor would take care of it. It was adorable how concerned she was. She listened to the baby's heartbeat and the nurse asked her if she wanted a brother or sister. She said she wanted a sister, but the baby is a boy. Even though we aren't sure of the gender yet.
