How far along: 19 weeks
Baby Bump: Yes, my belly has all of the sudden popped. It’s very obvious now 🙂
Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants are a necessity these days. Shirts, not so much. Regular pants are just WAY too uncomfortable.
Total Weight Gain: +1 pound, which I’m thrilled about because at this point in my pregnancy with Lily I had already gained 15-20 pounds.
Cravings: JAPANESE STEAKHOUSE FOOD!!! Love and crave it all: the soup with slivers of mushroom, the iceberg lettuce with ginger dressing, every single vegetable I can cram in my throat, all the fried rice, and the hibachi chicken. And all of that smothered in the pink shrimp sauce. AH-MAZING! We discovered a yummy hibachi steakhouse near our house and they don’t cook in front of you, so it’s cheaper. I can’t decide if this is a wonderful thing or a terrible thing. I’m sure it will cause that 1 pound to increase greatly for the next 20ish weeks.
Food that nearly makes me vomit when I think about it: Nothing lately
Symptoms: Still having some awful round ligament pain that pretty much paralyzes me for a couple seconds. Not sleeping well. And my uterus must already be taking up space that my bladder usually does because I go to the bathroom constantly.
Sleep: Huh? What’s that? Oh, you mean that time of rest at night that allows you to function each day? Yeah right.
Movement: Yes! But it’s unpredictable.
Gender: Find out on the 25th! And if it’s a boy, you are in for a treat with the name :). Although, we have one person we have to talk to before the boy name is set in stone. And if it’s not a boy, we still aren’t giving away the boy name but I promise you’ll like the girl name (as soon as we figure out what it is ourselves).
Belly button in or out: In
What I miss: Laying on my belly in the floor to play with Lily
Best Moment: Finding out I’ve only gained a pound, when I was sure to be on the plus side at least by 15 pounds by now.
Biggest Challenge: It’s not so much a challenge, but we are playing “pretend there is a baby asleep in the nursery” a lot to hopefully teach Lily when it is ok/not ok to be loud.
