19 Weeks!

DSC_0356

How far along: 19 Weeks!!!! Almost half way there! Well, really probably half way because I have never made it to 40 weeks! :)

Size of the baby: According to Baby Center, about the size of an heirloom tomato, 8 1/2 ounces and 6  inches long—that’s just from head to butt! So add the legs in there and that baby is getting pretty long!

Total weight gain/loss: I think I’ll skip this one.

Kidding! I’m up 14 pounds. Thank you Thanksgiving food and ginormous boobs! Seriously y’all they have to weigh 97 pounds EACH! Look back up at the picture…they stick out as much as my belly!!! I usually gain about 35 – 40 pounds when I am pregnant so since I’m half way that’s not so bad.

Maternity clothes: Not today!

Stretch marks: Old one.

Sleep: The past two nights have been great. Earlier in the week I couldn’t get into a deep sleep.

Best moment this week: I won a big award from our local Home Builders Association! Did y’all see my name in the newspaper?!!? I’m totally famous!!! HAHAHAHA!

Movement: YES  YES YES YES!!!!!! I feel the baby ALL THE TIME. This is the most active baby I’ve been pregnant with! And guess who else has felt it?

REECE!

She was SO excited when she felt it. I will never forget the look on her face! Hopefully the rest of the fam jam will feel it soon!

Food cravings/aversions: Still sweet tea. Oranges are GREAT this week! YUM!

Gender: Don’t know! Don’t want to know!

Labor signs: NO, thankfully.

Belly button in or out: In

What I am looking forward to: My sweet husband turns 31 on Sunday! I really enjoy giving him a hard time about being SO much older than me! (4 months!)

Also looking forward to our ultrasound on Wednesday!!! Hopefully we won’t be able to tell what the baby is!!! Bet you’ve never heard that!

Weekly wisdom: You’re only pregnant for 9 very short months!! Soak it up!

More and more people finally realize why I don’t want to know what we are having. You only get just a few surprises in life! We already have each…why not make the last one a surprise? I still feel like it’s a girl so if it comes out a girl I won’t be hugely surprised…but if it comes out and is a boy it will be a huge surprise and even more fun!
