18 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2

Week ending Oct. 31, 2017.
Due Date: April 3, 2018

Ultrasound to check cervix. 3.2 cm. Doc says if it gets down to 2.5, it's worrisome, so we're doing well so far.
Also got to see baby is indeed a boy.
She measured the heartbeat twice. It was from 150-160 bpm.
He has lots of room in there because he started out and ended the ultrasound in two different positions from sideways to head down. I didn't realize just how much room they have at this point.
Got my first Makena shot. I hate needles, drawing blood, shots, etc. but they give it in the butt so at least I wasn't watching haha. The shot wasn't bad, it just takes a little while to inject because it's a thick liquid. Afterwards for a couple hours it did ache a bit though.

Pretty sure I am feeling him from the outside now! I laid in bed with my hands on my belly for a good 20 minutes Sunday night while he was moving like crazy and I felt it a couple times. :) So exciting!!! Definitely feeling him everyday, several times.
Justin put his hand on my belly the other day and said he felt him, jokingly lol.

I got to be home all day with Calvin Friday. We went to the grocery store and to the doctor to get Cal's flu shot. When we got home I made him lunch before nap time and I literally thought to myself, holy crap, your energy is back! It just all of a sudden occurred to me, I felt like I was back into my normal mom groove and it was awesome. I should have been exhausted after running errands with Mr. Cal, but all was great.

Physical Symptoms:
Increased perspiration. I don't know what that's about. I did have this issue postpartum with Cal, but I don't remember it at all whiile I was actually pregnant.
Don't want to jinx it, but it seems like the headaches are finally calming down in the last couple weeks, right as I was about to have a breakdown if they wouldn't ease up.

Still too much snacking. I've had a bad sweet tooth. We need to keep the flour and sugar locked away so I can't just make cookies whenever I feel like it. Ha. I have been craving some damned Oreos though.

Sleep & Dreams:
Dreamt about donuts.

Favorite Moments of the Week:
Finally feeling our little boy from the outside! :)

Random Thoughts:
Sex confirmed via ultrasound this week, so we officially announced the name.
The ultrasound confirmed our Sneak Peek results. It is indeed a baby boy in there. :)
And we're trying really hard to use his name much more. We announced the name officially to Facebook and YouTube. I had already put it on Instagram a few weeks back.

In case you missed it, his name is Eren Michael.
