19 weeks

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

How far along: 19 weeks

Baby Size: the baby is the size of a mango (6 inches and half a pound!)

Weight gain: up 1.5 pounds from last week, up .2 pounds overall

Maternity clothes: wearing them most of the time but can still wear a few normal tops and dresses. Normal pants have pretty much been phased out (not a fan of belly bands!).  I bought 4 pairs of maternity pants from a local Facebook trading page for a total of $21: score!

Stretch marks: not yet

Sleep: some night it's okay, some nights I toss and turn

Best moment this week: feeling our baby kick, kick, kick! Not only from the inside - but from the outside a few times, too! Even Alex was able to feel him/her! I also got my first prenatal massage on Saturday which was heavenly. 

Looking forward to: our anatomy scan next Tuesday, and our gender reveal next weekend!

What I miss: having a drink with dinner

Movement: yes! Sometimes I have to lie still, and sometimes I can even feel it while sitting at my desk working. L-O-V-E feeling these tiny baby kicks!

Food cravings: pasta, pizza, candy

Anything making you queasy or sick: still not really digging chicken but it doesn't make me gag anymore 

Gender: don't know yet - we'll find out September 19!

Labor Signs: nope

Symptoms: tired, and round ligament pain will come outta nowhere 

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: feeling happy and grateful - but I'm not without moments of ugly! And yesterday I cried at something someone posted on Facebook about a dog for adoption because his owner had died. Alex said, "Are you crying?? Wait, is this one of those emotional pregnancy moments?" Yes, dear. It was. 

Nursery: Still Pinning away!

Prayer for Baby: Sweet baby H - we are so grateful to feel your little kicks and movements that make you seem so much more real to us! Your movement reminds me every day that there is a tiny, living person inside whom God has entrusted to US while here on this earth. We're so happy to be your parents! We pray for continued development and good health. Amen.
