How far along? technically 19 weeks…oopps
Total weight gain/loss: +8lbs.
Maternity clothes? YEP!! Its official, I can no longer rock my regular clothes with the exception of dresses and anything flowy. I’ve also been scouting out cute maternity dresses for an upcoming wedding we are going to as well as the holidays…which are right around the corner…FaLaLaLa!!!
Stretch marks? Slathering on the Belly Balm and Mustela every morning and night!!!
Sleep: Trying to sleep as much as possible. I feel so much better when I go to bed early and get a solid 9+ hours. I know these days are limited so i’m soaking up every hour I can now. Sleeping is getting slightly more uncomfortable with each passing day however. About time to invest in a good pregnancy pillow!!!
Best moment this week: We had an awesome visit with our new OBGYN and learned that baby is absolutely perfect. It is such a relief to know that everything is progressing safely and we are officially out of the woods with any complications. PS…we absolutely love our new doctor and I can’t stress enough how important it is to feel listened to and heard by your doc. I’m so happy we switched even if it was almost halfway through our pregnancy.
Have you told family and friends? Yep!
Worst moment this week: Rockin’ the cold and sick vibe like its going out of style. Everything is just uncomfortable and fighting anything without meds is just torture. Still drinking lots of fluids, received my humidifier and loving it, gargling with salt water, and sleeping LOTS!! Definitely feeling better though! Things are looking up!
Miss Anything? I would love to walk upstairs or get dressed in the morning without getting winded. Pregnancy is a funny thing and it does funny things to the body. I’m pretty sure I was in no way prepared for any of this.
Movement: Still nothing official but the nurse assured me that I will start to feel movement any time now.
Food cravings: Candy Corn and Salted Peanuts. Also loving the ready to bake Pillsbury Pumpkin sugar cookies. Oh dear…i’m not gonna make it through the holidays!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Feeling GREAT!!!!
Have you started to show yet: I feel huge but I’m still not really showing at all!!!
Gender prediction: BOY!!! But now i’m thinking it might be a little girl too. IDK!!!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY but super emotional these days. Poor hubby is being such a trooper helping with the mood swings.
Looking forward to: Feeling the baby kick or move and our 20 week ultrasound!!!
