19 weeks and the BIG reveal!


How Far Along: Last Saturday marked 19 weeks

Size of Baby: Heirloom tomato: 8.5 ounces, 6 inches

Weight Gain: 12 pounds 

Stretch Marks: Not on my tummy...sorry for the tmi dad!

Maternity Clothes:  Maternity is still just a tad too big for me, but I'm making them work because they are SO much more comfy than normal clothes.  I just don't quite fill out most of my tops and my bottoms sag a little so I yank them up!  But, really though...maternity clothes should be the norm - comfort is key!

Gender:  Keep reading.

Movement:  Yes, quite a bit of movement lately.

Sleep: Bought myself a body pillow at Ikea last week and sleeping with that is heaven!

Missing:  My family.  Particularly my mom, dad, and brother bear.  Finding out the gender this week was super exciting and I'm so glad I got to call them immediately with the news, but I really wish they could have been in the room with me.  Thanksgiving!

Loving:  S'more poptarts; CONFESSION: I bought more.  They were on sale - don't hate.

Craving:  Sushi.  I'm seeing some cooked rolls in my near future in preparation for the first week of school with kids.  I deserve it....right hubby?

Feeling: Blessed.  There are so many things we take for granted and this week and last, especially, opened my eyes to the miracle that I get to be part of.  I have said it from the beginning, but I will say it again: I fully intend to embrace and drink in every precious moment in these 9 months.

Looking Forward: Celebrating one of the sweetest friends I've made since moving to NC tomorrow as she prepares to be a bride and another sweet friend expecting her first baby (boy) on Sunday.   

Best Moment(s):   Finding out we are having a BOY!!  Seeing every single nook and cranny of Baby G on an extra ultrasound we had done at the hospital this week.  Being surrounded by amazing friends that rally together in good times and in bad.


I will have nicer pictures after the weekend.
My week took an unexpected twist and we weren't able to take nice announcement pictures yet.
