Bumpdate: 19 Weeks

Pregnancy Update Week by Week

Due Date: August 5, 2015

How far along?: 19 weeks, 5 days

Gender: It's a BOY!

Total weight gain:  I guess we'll just wait until the next doctor appointment to learn this little tidbit of information.

Stretch marks?: None that I can see. My skin is super soft and smooth given all the lotions/creams that I'm constantly lathering on my body!

Symptoms: No change in physical symptoms, but "pregnancy brain" is out in full force. I seem to forget EVERYTHING these days. I'm surprised I even remembered to note this in this week's update.  

Maternity clothes?: I'd say I'm in full-on maternity attire about 80% of the time. The only "normal" clothes that still work are leggings/yoga pants and a couple of my pre-pregnancy dresses.

Sleep:  I've slept better the last few nights than I have in a long time. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping this lasts for awhile! Nothing quite like a good night's sleep.

Cravings: Eggs. Scrambled eggs to be more precise. I could eat them for three meals a day...and I may have done just that earlier this week.

Food Aversions: No change here. Still not loving the smell of seafood and can't stomach the idea of eating a grilled chicken breast.

Mood: The roller coaster of emotions is back! It's been a week of highs and lows...lots of laughs and a few tears. I think most of the tears were simply due to exhaustion. I was traveling for work the first part of the week and the days were really long...I think I wore myself down both physically and emotionally, so even the tiniest little things could bring on the tears. I knew in my head I was being overly sensitive, but there was just no controlling it!

Best Moment of the Week: Feeling this little midget man move inside of me! I was so afraid that I was  being overly anxious and imagining that I was feeling him move around, so my initial thought was that I was just feeling my heart beat (like a throbbing feeling) in my stomach...but once I settled down and sat still for long enough, I realized the "beating" feelings weren't in sync with my heart. I'm guessing I didn't have a clue the first few times I actually felt him move...I just mistakenly assumed it was my tummy rumbling or my pulse! Oops! Being able to feel him move around gives me a feeling of contentment. 

Miss Anything?: My memory! I didn't have a fabulous memory to begin with, but I didn't expect it would get this bad! A couple of times I've found myself in the kitchen or bedroom closet or somewhere in particular, but I can't remember for the life of me what it was I went in that room to get. Ugh. Let's just say lists are crucial these days.

Looking Forward To: Our next doctor appointment {the 24th} anxious to see our little guy again! I feel like it's been an eternity since the last sonogram.
