Urgh, I’m sorry all my posts have been mostly pregnancy related…but alas, it has consumed my life lately. I can’t believe I’m 19 weeks already! I promise I’ll have a blog featuring my new stroller, and some goodies I picked up in Cali on our trip soon. Here we go again:
How far along are you? 19 weeks…I’m officially half-way, since I need to deliver by 38 weeks. Only like 4 months to go! That’s crazy.
How big is the baby? According to my BabyCenter App, it’s about the size of an heirloom tomato.
Weight Gain? I’m up 7lbs. I’m pretty pleased with that, I think I was at 15 by now with McKenzie.
Maternity clothes? Yoga pants & sweatshirts are my uniform of choice.
Stretch marks? A tiny one on my inner thigh. And my boobies, which are leaking now. Oh joy.
Sleep: My itching is much worse at night, so my doc suggested Benadryl…not for the itching, but to knock me out. Worked like a charm last night! I slept like a man. =)
Best moment this week? We booked trip to visit Jon next month! I’m so excited. It was EXPENSIVE for a 48 hour trip, but I don’t even care. Oh well.
Movement? He’s getting stronger & more consistent every day. =) I love that feeling. He’s tumbling around right now.
Food cravings? Bite Size Tostitos (my fave) covered in Sharp Cheddar. And also scallops (this recipe is easy and delicious…I use sea scallops. It’s one of the safest pregnancy seafoods). Weird.
Food aversions? Nope.
Labor signs? Nope.
Symptoms? Not as itchy, thank goodness. Nothing to speak of. Gotta love 2nd trimester. =)
Belly button in or out? In. With McKenzie it just went flat…it was never an “outie.”
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody? Pretty happy. A little overwhelmed with cleaning up the house post-vacay.
What I miss: Not a whole lot, pre-pregnancy wise. Maybe my body obviously…I’m in that awkward stage where it’s not clear if I’m fat or pregnant. Haha.
What I am looking forward to: Seeing Jon next month, obviously. But we also have the 20 week anatomy ultrasound next Wednesday (May 1st), so I’m excited to see Baby Boy again.
