How far along: 19 WEEKS!
Baby Size: A mango! 6 inches long, about 10 oz. But remember, there’s 2 mangoes in there!
Weight gain: NONE yet! Thankfully!!
Maternity clothes: Completely. And I LOVE the a.n.a. maternity tanks! Come to think of it, I need to order a few more…Stretch marks: Yep. But I had stretch marks when I was swimming and in great shape. So I’m used to them and not particularly worried about it. Sleep: Not really! I wake up about 4-5 times per night, and the rest of the night consists of lots of rolling over & trying to get comfortable. Gender: one BOY & one GIRL!
Movement: Not yet! I’m excited to feel them move, I think it will help me relax and know they are both OK!
Best moment this week: Sofia graduated from college, and we got to see all of Marshall’s family together at their house! Also we are prettyyyyyy surreeeee on names!!
Looking forward to: Week 24 – it’s a multiples milestone and I’m encouraged to be 19 weeks and feeling great so far! Food cravings: apples and Jimmy John’s! (Yes, I’ve heard the lunch meat concerns, yes I’ve addressed it with my doctors, and yes I still eat lunch meat.) Anything making you queasy or sick: It was completely random, but M had BBQ chicken the other night, and I had to eat in another room. What I miss: Bending over without squatting to reach anything on the floor. A good night’s sleep. Having any kind of functional energy whatsoever. Symptoms: I think it’s pretty typical, but aches and pains in my back, legs, and feet. Picky appetite. Can’t sit or stand for too long. Forgetful… constantly thinking of something else in the middle of an entirely different thought. So… confused. Nursery: Ready for paint! Belly Button in or out? In? Does this change?
Wedding rings on or off? Off! Sad! Between pregnancy swelling and summer heat swelling, they came off safely before I reached a point of having to have them cut off.
Mood: Anxious & tired! But happy, healthy, & excited!
Workouts: HAH! If I make it through the morning at work, or tasks around the house, I’m happy. There will be no ‘exercising’ in the near future. PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT | GENDER REVEAL
