This past Tuesday I turned 19 weeks. Since I will be delivering at 39 weeks or before, it is crazy to think that we are a little over half way through this pregnancy.
How far along? 19 weeks +3
Baby's Size: A tomato
Gender: We know, but we are still going to keep it to ourselves a little more longer.
Weight Gain: At my appointment last week I was still under pre-pregnancy weight by 1 pound. Even though I feel and look like I've gained at least a good 10 lbs.
Baby's Movement: Yes! I am so happy to finally be feeling these little flutters. I'd say I feel the baby move 10 times a day if not a little more. I have to be really still and concentrate so I know I am not missing them. I always feel the kicks down low right under my belly button.
Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants are heaven. Heaven I tell you. They are so comfortable and help with the expanding of the belly as the day goes on. Regular shirts are still being worn, but I know it is coming to an end soon.
Sleep: Pretty good. The tossing and turning is what keeps me from getting a great nights rest.
Belly Button In/Out: Still in. It never popped out with Griffin so I would expect the same thing to happen this go around.
Stretch Marks: None. I only got one (on my hip) with Griffin but I didn't find it until after I delivered him.
Symptoms: Back pain has been sticking around more this week, other than that I feel great!
Cravings: None that I can think of. Food wise I don't ever just have to have something because I am craving it. I eat a pretty hardy breakfast but I tend to snack the rest of the day. The amount I can eat is very little and if I do overeat, then I pay for it the rest of the day and feel horrible.
Miss Anything? My energy.
Best Moment This Week: This past week I was patting my belly and saying "baby" to Griffin. I know he has no clue what is going on but I would like for him to at least know there is a baby in Mama's belly. He automatically hit his own belly and started saying "baby"! I was a great highlight this week.
Worst Moment This Week: None I can think of.Looking Forward To: Picking out a name. We know we want some type of family name, but nothing is telling us "Yes, that's it!" We knew within seconds of finding out we were having a boy, that his name should be Griffin. Who knows, baby #2 might be nameless until the birth.
How's Husband? Doing well. I think he is starting to realize that soon we will have two children under the age of two. We better get as much rest now as we can.
