Pregnancy Week 18

How far along: 18 weeks
Total weight gain: 4.5/5lbs. I've always gained between 10-15lbs by 20 weeks so imagine the next few weeks will be a blast
Maternity clothes: No
Stretch marks: Just a left over roadmap from the 5 other blessings
Sleep: I wake up between 4 and 6x a night lately and I'm thinking that's how its going to stay for the remainder of this pregnancy.
Best moment of this week: We found out we were having a girl! Scarlet Wren.
 Also this week I hadn't felt her move in 3.5 days. Which normally I would have brushed off since its so early, but I've seen her outside my belly already. So, I went in and had her checked and she is doing great and sitting extremely high in my opinion.
Miss anything: Running!!!! I did attempt a 1 min jog. It was pathetic. My heart rate went up to 160. I'm not supposed to have my heart rate above 140 this pregnancy due to our history, so it is what it is.
Movement: After the appt the little lady has been moving like crazy. Every time I see her move I try to get Ronnie to run over, but I guess she gets cozy right when he gets there. I've never felt a baby outside my belly this early either. Usually I'm pushing 24 weeks and Ronnie can't feel until closer to 25/26 weeks.
Food cravings: La Croix Cran- Raspberry,  Honey bunches of oats with strawberries, lemonade.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Pork sounds disgusting!!
Have you started to show yet: yes
Gender: Girl
Labor signs: Braxton Hicks contractions started. I'm not terribly concerned because I think its just par for the course. They are very infrequent and only happen a few times a day.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Teary. all the time. I feel very sensitive and again I feel so confused by this season.

Looking forward to: Summer break
