Mini-Coop: Week 18

Baby is the size of a sweet potato!

Well, our due date changed a little bit, Mini-Coop is now due to make his/her appearance on September 30th (instead of on the 28th). Can you believe this marks the beginning of the 5th month?!?


How I’m Feeling

Still doing super! I had one day where I didn’t feel so great, but work has been pretty busy for the past two weeks, and I didn’t sleep well at all the night before. Just goes to show how important sleep is! This was our finals week, so our schedules were a little bit weird, but we’re done with the Spring 2012 semester!!! Yippee! And Daniel is done with his undergrad! I’m married to a UK Graduate!

I’m taking classes this summer, and those start on Monday. I’m looking forward to my “summer schedule” of class and work, I have a few days with a large chunk of time in the afternoon, so I’m hoping to get into a more regular exercise routine! And I’ll have time before classes in the mornings, so Silas and I may try to get in some regular morning walks (I know he would LOVE that!)

Silas also got a haircut this week- this pup is pretty miserable when the temp soars over 80 degrees, so we decided to shave him down. He looks so cute!!! (And Ashley pointed out that he looks kind of like he did when he was a pup!)



We had a doctors appointment this week, and everything looks great! Baby Coop’s heart is beating at 140 bpm (compared to 153bpm 4 weeks ago and 167bpm 8 weeks ago)! My appointments are so quick and painless- urine sample, weight, blood pressure, any questions? All done. Next visit, we’ll finally get a belly measurement, so there will be one more step added to visits. I know I should enjoy it while I can, I hear the 3rd trimester visits can get rather… invasive. Our big ultrasound will be on May 22nd or 23rd, and we couldn’t be more excited!!! Not only are we excited to find out if little Mini-Coop is a he or a she, but we’re looking forward to seeing little fingers and toes and all other little baby parts.

Pregnancy Stats

Weight Gained: 2lbs
Pants that don’t fit: 2 pair
Bathroom trips at night: down to 1 or 2, THANK GOODNESS!
Number of salads consumed this week: 5
# of naps desired vs. # of naps taken: 3 vs. 1 (we need to work on that ratio…)

Oh… and because I think pregnancy weeks/months are confusing, here’s a handy dandy chart!

    Very tiny tummy still. Well, you are a little gal. Could be why.

    Wonderful that your schedule is full + busy. The best thing for anyone.

    Pooch looks adorable. Reminds me of my very first bow-wow Panda. She was fluffy, b&w like Silas.

    Enjoy the weekend!

  2. The weeks are flying by – at least from an outsiders perspective!! I might have already said it, but congrats to Daniel on graduation! I also have “summer school” this year, and not exactly looking forward to it. I’m excited to be back in the academic setting (I’ve been off for a year now) but work is going to be bussssyy this summer. And I’m used to being able to schedule school around my workouts!! Hah not so much for summer session. A good test of commitment I guess!

    1. I feel like they’re flying by too! Summer school isn’t exactly my cup of tea, BUT, I know it will only help in getting me further along in my “educational career”! I didn’t realize it had been a year since you had been out!!! You’ll rock it! And getting back to scheduling workouts around school will be… interesting, but you’ll love it! You’ve done it before 🙂 Hope you have a great however many days before your classes start (mine start tomorrow, eek! Need to buy books TODAY!)
