19 week update!

Matt said I needed to update my blog more often, so I stole this idea from another blogger and I plan to do an update every week from now on with a pic and some fun info. Hope you like it!

PICS: This is me at 18w6d all ready for a day in San Fran for a friend's bridal shower!

How far along: 19 weeks.

How big is baby:
 The size of a mango. He/she is working on her five senses. Nerve cells for his/her sense of taste, hearing, sight and smell are developing in his/her brain.

Total weight gain: 
A total of  approximately 7 pounds from the start of the pregnancy. (179lbs now)

I am sleeping ok. I have a few more aches and pains and my arms get sore, so I toss and turn a lot. I have to get up 1-2 times a night to pee, but that's to be expected since I am drinking tons of water!

Maternity Clothes: 
I have maternity bottoms that I am wearing pretty regularly. I have gotten all of them at my favorite thrift store, Eco Thrift. I have gotten some awesome deals there! My awesome mommy also bought me a bellaband so I can wear my regular bottoms too. So far my regular shirts still fit, at least the longer ones. Elastic waist pants are so comfortable! Love them!

Best moment of the week: 
Had a dr's appointment this last Friday (6/29) and we heard Little Hill's heartbeat! So awesome! :D I am right on track growth-wise and can't wait until my ultrasound on July 12th!

Food cravings : 
I don't really have any cravings, per se. I like to eat ice cream alot, but I always like ice cream! I think I am just using being preggo as an excuse to eat it more often! :D

Food aversions:
 None really. I like to eat everything! :D

None really at all. I sometimes get heartburn and have an upset tummy, but nothing too severe. I am more tired than usual, but nothing that effects my life too much. Naps are my friend.

: Since week 17 (on my 2nd anniversary!) I have felt "flutters". Feels like baby is rolling around inside me. So cool! It isn't regular at this time and seems to happen most often after I eat and when relaxing on the couch. Sometimes in the car too. Can't wait until it's regular movement and Matt can feel it!

Don't know yet. I have a feeling it's a boy and chinese gender chart says boy, but we shall see on 7/12!

What I’m looking forward to: 
July 12th! :D Can't wait to see Little Hill on the ultrasound again and make sure he/she is healthy and find out if it's an Elias or Rosalee!

What I miss: 
Wine. I love wine. I want a glass (read: bottle) of wine SO bad! 

Next appt:
 July 12th

  1. You have a bump! Cute!
    I have gained so much weight. 20llbs in 20weeks. I'm gonna have to try and reel it in to about 0.5 lb a week now. I really want to avoid c-section.
    Totally agree with you on the wine. A glass of cold white wine sounds so good.
