brief update...19 weeks!

How far along: 19 weeks

Baby size: Mango

Total weight gain/loss: Up around 6 to 7 pounds.

Sleep: Great! I do like that I am able to stay up later now...for a while I was such a party pooper and fell asleep so early.  I'm back to my night owl tendencies.  One pillow between the legs is still the trick!

Movement:  Yes and it's so amazing! I love feeling her move around! During my 19th week she was starting to get rowdy enough where I thought Justin could feel her from the outside...but not quite yet.  I feel her mainly at night when I'm sitting down on the couch and in bed.  However, I do get a bump or poke during the day randomly sometimes.

Food cravings/aversions: I'm still going with Dr. Pepper.  And I'm still enjoying chicken much more than red meat.

Pregnancy Symptoms: I honestly cannot complain one bit.  Leg cramps is about it.

What I miss: Nothing really.  Still not enjoying maternity clothing and how difficult it is to even get dressed for a day at home in comfortable lounge clothes...they even are starting to feel tight! :)

What I'm looking forward to: Our second ultrasound! (Which since I'm a slacker, we've already been and I'll update you in the 20 week update.)

Milestones: Movement getting more frequent.  I expect it now and talk to her a lot more to get her moving.

Best moment this week: Really having this pregnancy feel a lot more real to Justin and myself due to feeling her alive inside me.  Amazing.

Moments with Justin: He's getting super excited to feel his sweet baby girl kick from the outside.  He puts his hands on my belly quite often just in hopes of feeling her.

Pin It!


  1. Hey girl - you look adorable! Glad you updated!! I'm excited for these upcoming weeks for you...talk about it getting really real!!! Now I can't even wrap my mind around how fast it's going! Let's get together soon. :)

  2. I bet he will feel her soon. I think Jesse really started feeling her movements around week 20 or 21. That's also when you could see them from the outside. It's so exciting, isn't it?

  3. Awww :-) You look so cute!!! Love the little bump! Just wait until you can SEE her moving around...SO NEAT!!! I also like chicken MUCH more than red meat!!!

  4. I agree with Tami! Tony felt C right around 20 weeks and we saw it at 21 exactly! Before you know it it will be much harder and ALL the time! Mine is wiggling now as I type :)
    Isn't staying up late again the best? After I stopped working I didn't know what to do when I didn't feel the need to be in bed by 8 :)

  5. and you still look great! I'm so glad you are able to enjoy this on summer break, but I miss visiting too.

  6. You look so cute and baby bump is showing more now. Time will go by quicker now.
