How Far Along: 19 Weeks
Size of Baby: About 9 oz... 6 inches from crown to booty!
Total Weight Gain: I lost a pound, lol, I have no idea why or how. Anyway, total weight gain for my entire pregnancy is 3 pounds... this blows my mind because in less than a week I'll be "officially" 5 months along! WOW!
Maternity Clothes: bottoms, some tops
Gender: Sweet baby girl!
Movement: She is a WILD GIRL! We know this from watching the monitor with our jaws on the floor as we watcher her flip and twist and make it VERY hard for the ultrasound tech to get what she needed, lol. Also, interesting fact, my placenta is on top! Basically this means that it attached on the side closest to my belly! The ultrasound tech explained that basically my placenta is acting like a big mattress/buffer between me and the baby so I won't feel her as much as I most likely would from a baby in a future pregnancy.
Sleep: Sometimes like a rock, sometimes really difficult. Not sleeping flat on my back is a challenge.
Symptoms: Not much, I pretty much feel like myself... except for my tiny baby bump, occasional heart burn, and a flutter every now and then! lol
What I Miss: wine.... boy do I miss my wine!
Cravings: Water, Caffeine Free Tea, Lemonade... I'm just thirsty all the time!
Best Moment This Week: Our ultrasound!! It was amazing and wonderful!
What I'm Looking Forward To: Holding our sweet baby girl!
Now, some of you know this already, but for those of you who don't.... we were more prepared for boy than girl and we are at a total loss for names! We want something unique, but not weird. We like last names for first names and are now open for suggestions! ;-)
