Week 19

How far along? 19 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 6.2 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes. A parent of a child in my class gave me some maternity clothes this past week, and they are awesome!  I'm so thankful!
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep: Sleeping great.  I wake up about 3-4 times each night (and have since I was just 4 weeks pregnant) to go to the bathroom.  I fall right back asleep, thank goodness.  I also have the most bizarre dreams.  
Best moment this week:  Feeling the baby move is pretty amazing.  It is so fun.  I think that any day now Nate will be able to feel it too.  I keep making him put his hand on my stomach but he hasn't felt anything yet. 
Movement:Yes!  I feel the baby each day which is pretty awesome. 
Food cravings: Nothing right now. If I hear someone talk about some type of food I usually want to eat it right away, but I haven't had any cravings on my own yet.
Anything making you queasy or sick: not anymore.  
Have you started to show yet: Yes.  Things are getting tighter and tighter and my shirts are getting shorter.  I have used a rubber band to hold my jeans together.  I am sure that this will not last, and I will be purchasing a Belly Band in the near future!
Gender: 7 more days.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody: Happy!
  Looking forward to: getting to find out the gender on October 27th and having our Anatomy Ultrasound on October 23rd to check to make sure baby is growing well and is nice and healthy!

I figured I should show you how HUGE my belly looks with my shirt up in all of it's glory!  I am pretty confident about the way I look and have LOVED being pregnant so far.  It helps having a sweet, sweet husband who tells me so often, "You look really beautiful today."

My friend, Beth Scott, designed our Gender Reveal invitations.  I am obsessed with her work!  She has two precious boys and works very quickly and is always making sure that her clients are satisfied!
Check her out!
