How far along: 19 weeks!
Total weight gain: not sure, who cares? My belly is growing and that’s all that matters right now.
Maternity clothes: oh yes, I am rocking my “big girl” maternity pants for the full belly action. I have it rolled down in the pic but that band goes all the way up to my boobs! Best thing ever. Must go get more.
Stretch marks: Nope. I keep thinking I see the start of the dark line down the belly but it isn’t really getting darker. I think it’s my imagination. I only seem to see it when I get out of the shower.
Sleep: Going to sleep is SO easy! But I’ve started waking up around 3AM and can’t get back to sleep. I’m getting a lot of extra work down, lol.
Best moment of this week: Our Level 2 ultrasound anatomy appointment. They also checked my cervix which they said is nice and long, which is a good thing. It was great to see Keelan again, Mr. active baby stretching and kicking all over while they tried to measure him. They said I was going to be feeling him A LOT soon with the way he was moving. I’ve felt a few bumps and twinges here and there so far. Everything measured perfectly and they said we have a very healthy baby boy! He also spent a good amount of time showing off his package as if to make sure we knew without a doubt he was a boy.
While going over his measurements, the doc asked how tall we were. (me 5’9″, husband 6′) Then he pointed out some limb measurements that were a whole week ahead! Looks like he is going to be a tall one! Hoping he gets to be around 6’2″ 🙂
Miss anything: Planning for the annual bad Santa bar crawl where everyone dresses up in Santa gear, donates a toy and then goes from bar to bar spreading Christmas cheer and merry drunkeness. Not so fun pregnant, even though I am growing my own Santa belly this year.
Movement: Yes! Little bumps and pokes here and there. Nothing major yet and not very regular.
Food cravings: Still none. There’s stuff I’m “in the mood for,” but nothing like I MUST have it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I almost threw up on the dentist! I went in for my annual cleaning and was extra gaggy. They said I went all red and splotchy and they started spraying me with the air hose to cool me down.
Have you started to show yet: I am and I’m loving it. I actually pick out shirts that show off my belly the best.
Gender: no doubt about it, he is a boy. I keep reading posts about people who were told it was a girl or boy and then got a surprise later. Well my little guy is quite the exhibitionist and left nothing to speculate about.
Belly button in or out: still in, though it appears to be getting wider. I wonder what makes it pop out? Maybe it depends on how shallow or deep it is?
Wedding rings on or off: on for work and public appearances only. Off the moment I walk in the door at home.
Happy or moody most of the time: so happy I’m singing and dancing around the house at random intervals
Looking forward to: movement my husband can feel. I can’t wait to share that!
