18 weeks

How far along?: 18 weeks
Total weight gain: 11lbs.
Maternity clothes: Not really. Wearing a lot of dresses and skirts lately though. 
Best moment this week: We had our anatomy scan on Wednesday and found out we're having a boy! We were gonna wait to open the envelope but wanted to open it just the three of us since my family would be out for Christmas. We're super excited that Finn will have a brother so close in age and I can't wait to watch them grow up together. 
Symptoms: I've had to slow down my runs a bit since I not too much pulling and a little soreness when I go fast during sprints. I've made my runs a bit longer to make up for it and it's been fine. I'm running the Maine half marathon in October (4 months postpartum) since I deferred my application last year when I found out I was pregnant and knowing how competitive I am didn't want to run it and push myself too hard when I was so early still. So keeping the miles long but a little slower is probably best. 
Miss anything?: Nothing really.
Movement: Still nothing. 
Food cravings: Holy sugar crave! Anything and everything sugar. 
Have you started to show yet?: Yes, but it's still that awkward stage when people at the gym probably think I'm fat or pregnant but don't want to ask and offend me if I'm not haha
Gender prediction: Little man 2!
Mood: Exhausted and moody as usual.
Looking forward to: Christmas with our families here in Vermont. I can't wait to see how excited Finn will be on Christmas :)
