baby griki update: weeks 15, 16, 17, and 18!

Weeks 15, 16, 17, and 18
It's been a busy month around here.

Weeks 15, 16, and 17 I was teaching Special Education at one of the high school's in the district.  It was so nice to be back in a classroom and getting back in the swing of things before Fall.  Weeks 15 and 16 were still filled with lots of exhaustion...but we also found out baby GRIKI is a girl!!

Weeks 17 and 18 I finally felt like I had my energy back.  Week 17 we celebrated Becca's High School Graduation and the weekend was filled with lots of family time and graduation events.  As we were getting ready to leave for graduation, Grant announced that I had most definitely popped!  People can now distinguish that I am indeed pregnant and not just spending my days munching on doughnuts....

I was definitely more tired going into week 18 and had two days filled with morning episodes of tachycardia followed by extreme exhaustion.  We were both more than a little nervous that my POTS was starting to make an appearance; but after looking at our schedule for the previous week, I'm almost positive that those episodes were directly related to stress and exhaustion.

I'm still craving everything I'm allergic to; but I'm also craving all sweet fruits.  So lots of peaches, plums, and strawberries around here.

Looking forward to a nice, relaxing summer getting my classroom and plans ready for fall...and the nursery of course! We bought our first item for the nursery last weekend.  Very very exciting!
