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.

  1. Oh how I am looking forward to feeling baby kicks! I agree that the belly band is very strange and I am not a fan either!
