19 Weeks!

How far along?  19w2d

Total weight gain?  Still around 8-9 pounds

Maternity Clothes? Yes, maternity clothes in full force, pants especially, jeans & leggings so far.  I have worn a few tops, but honestly you'd never even know they were maternity tops.
Stretch Marks?  None.

Sleep?  Sleep has been pretty good.  My cat and dog have been waking me up more often then my body has been.

Best moment this week?  Got to finally see my midwife this past week, she was so happy for us.  We listened to the heart beat beating away in the 130s & 140s.  I did some quad blood work that tests for spina bifida and other neuro/spinal disorders & had some general blood work done that I didn't have done early on (testing for HIV & other STD's, blood type, etc.) and we finally got to schedule our 22 week ultrasound for November 4th, I cannot wait to see how big she has gotten! 

Miss anything?  I could really go for a glass of wine.

Movement?   I am pretty sure I'm finally starting to feel her kick too.  At first I thought it was the Metamucil and stool softeners that I've had to take so much of lately.  Progesterone production drastically slows down the digestive system during pregnancy and I'm definitely feeling it.  Working on my 25-30 grams of fiber intake per day.  At first I thought some of the rumblings were because of that combination of meds & supplements, but now I'm convinced it's her.

Food cravings?  Cravings have pretty much subsided.  I just like all food in general.

Anything make you queasy or sick?  Not a darn thing!

Have you started to show yet?  Yep, the bump is here to stay.

Gender?  Girl

Labor Signs?  No

Belly button in or out?  In

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time?  Happy for the majority of the time!

Looking forward to?  I have another prenatal massage this week and I'm really looking forward to it.  Also this coming Saturday we will hit 20 weeks & already been at the halfway point of this pregnancy!  I cannot believe how fast the time is going.  Joe asked me about some free weekends over the next couple of months (he has some sort of surprise for me) and I was going through the calendar realizing how quickly Thanksgiving and Christmas are approaching!  Time is seriously flying!


  1. Yay for getting to see your midwife AND feeling baby girl! Such a good week!

  2. Some days pregnancy feels like it is going by so slow and other days it seems like it is flying by. Lucky for us, we have a lot of Holidays coming up which will make it fly by even faster!
