19 Weeks


Size of Baby: A mango...about 6 inches and 8.5 ounces!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I weighed myself this morning just to see for this. :)  I'm still about even...not gaining but not losing now.

Maternity Clothes: Still the same...mostly maternity pants (except for jeans, which still fit fine for some reason), and a few shirts too!

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Movement: The kicks are definitely getting stronger and more frequent!  She has her little "spurts" where she goes crazy for about 30 minutes, then I won't feel her again for a few hours.  She's usually most active first thing in the morning and in the afternoon/early evening time...but lately she's been moving around when I go to bed too!

Sleep: I figured out this week that I don't sleep very well without the pregnancy pillow.  I think it's because I normally sleep on my stomach...I wake up on my stomach if I don't have the pillow, which just kind of makes it sore.  But as long as I have the pillow (and don't try to take my vitamins at night) it's good!

What I miss: Nothing!

What I am looking forward to: I get to see this sweet baby again in 2 weeks!  And they should be delivering our furniture soon.

Cravings/Aversions: Still with the meat...it's not as bad, but anything with meat still grosses me out.

Symptoms: I figured out this week that what's left of the "morning sickness" is just getting sick from taking my vitamins the night before.  As long as I take them with dinner, I don't get sick in the mornings anymore!  I've got this weird pain right on my left hip bone that I can only figure is round ligament pain.  And honestly, a little moody...stress plus pregnancy is not a good thing!

Best Moment This Week: Feeling those stronger kicks!

Weekly Wisdom: Some acquaintances will treat you differently when they know you're pregnant...sometimes it's good, and sometimes it's not.  And that's all I will say about that. :)
