19 Weeks

19 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 4lbs!  The scale at my gym is just like the one at the doctor's office, so now I have an accurate way to track my weekly weight gain.

Maternity Clothes?  I really need to do some shopping.  One pair of maternity pants isn't cutting it!

Have You Started to Show?  Yes, finally a stranger noticed!  A trainer at the gym very confidently asked me when I was due!  An exciting moment for sure...now I won't worry people just think I have a nice little beer belly.

Stretch Marks?  Nope.

Sleep?  So great, my Snoogle is the best!  I didn't take it to Montana with me this weekend and I will NOT make that mistake again.  I can't imagine life without it.

Best Moment This Week:  Conor getting to feel some strong kicks from baby boy!

Miss Anything?  My balance!  Now that I'm back in the gym, I've realized how bad it has really gotten.  I knew this was a symptom of pregnancy, but didn't realize how much it would affect me!  Not to mention bumping into things all around my house.

Movement?  He is moving all the time!  It's amazing what a difference of just two weeks can make!  He is especially active in the evenings or whenever I'm lying down.  Nighttime is my new favorite time!

Food Cravings:  Blueberries!  Blueberry everything & anything.  This week I found myself eating: blueberry granola, blueberry bagels, blueberry muffins, blueberry scones, & blueberry smoothies.  I found myself wanting blueberry taffy or blueberry ice cream, but I never found any.  Then, I noticed there is now a Blueberry Twisted Tea!  You.Have.To.Be.Kidding.Me.  For those who know me well, you know that twisted tea is my drink of choice.  Of course there had to be some blueberry twisted tea staring me down this week, ugh!

Food Aversions:  My appetite decided to disappear again this week...well except for all things blueberry.  Hoping I'm back to enjoying my meals again soon.

Symptoms:  Feeling great other than my lack of balance.

Staying Active?  I LOVE being back in the gym!  This week I met with a personal trainer who really motivated me to get back into a good routine.  I'm mixing in cardio with some minor weight training.  But no worries, everything is safe for baby and I am watching my heart rate.

Belly Button:  Getting flatter everyday...

Happy or Moody?  Happy, happy, happy!  How can I not be when I feel my baby move throughout the day.  I am already so in love.

Nursery Progress:  Finding boy bedding that I like has proved to be difficult.  I found a great website babybedding.com that lets you design your own.  It's a great site because you can change the color of the crib, the flooring, and the walls to see exactly what it will look like in your nursery.  Now it's just getting Conor & I to agree on something...so many options!  I did a little shopping for baby boy this week and found more cute outfits.  I love seeing the teeny tiny clothes hanging in his closet!  I also brought a frame of Classic Pooh prints from my room in Spokane.  I have had these since I was little and can't wait to get it hung up in the nursery!

Looking Forward to:  Making more progress in the nursery.  I want to get some paint on the walls, but of course that mutual decision make take awhile.  I have decided that one wall will have stripes, and I'm pretty excited about that.
