19 Weeks (Bump #2)

Total Weight Gain: 10 lbs.  I am officially at my pre-pregnancy weight with Liam (which I consider to be my healthy weight) which tips the scales at 134 lbs.  Will be interesting to see if my weight gain is similar to my 1st pregnancy scale wise.

Symptoms: Another great week!  I had almost forgotten what it felt like to wake up and feel good in the morning for awhile there.

Movement: Pretty much throughout the whole day now, but especially while I'm lying down.  Both Conor & I have felt kicks from the outside, which is just the best!  Can't wait for them to get stronger & stronger!

Showing Yet:  No stranger has commented yet, but I'm definitely starting to get looks at the gym.  Some people's face seem to say "good for you" while others look at me with a "why the hell are you running with a big pregnant belly"!

Gender Predictions:  We find out Monday!  I'm really on the fence about the gender now, just excited to know either way and to start learning more about this little person.

Purchases:  Bought some cute clothes with all the great sales this time of year.  Some gender neutral, lots of girl stuff, eek!

Sleep?  Definitely improving!

Food Cravings/Aversions:  Fruit & sweets!

Staying Active?  Only 3 workouts again.  I think I need to realize that this is my reality for this pregnancy.  It is a far cry from my 5-7 days a week of working out with my first pregnancy, but I am becoming okay with that.  Toddler wrangling is a workout in itself, so there's that!

Cries: 1.  I found out that Liam can't come to my ultrasound appointment with us.  There is currently a ban on children visiting the hospital right now (this commonly happens during the winter season).  I am devastated.  Not sure how we will tell him the news now!

Liam's Thoughts:  My friend had her baby this week, so Liam has loved looking at pictures and talking about being a big brother!

Looking Forward to: Seeing our sweet baby on the ultrasound, making sure he or she is healthy, and finding out the gender!!!

And because I'm a sucker for comparison...


  1. Looking radiant!!! So excited for you to find out the gender!!!

  2. You look awesome!!!! Thanks to Thanksgivig I've finally hit my pre-pregnancy weight with Lily as well! Yay for Connor being able to feel the baby! Such a milestone for sure! Can't wait to hear about the gender!

  3. You look fantastic! And I can't wait to hear about the gender!

  4. You look awesome!! I hate those sideways glancer's at the gym... as if they have a right to judge ;)

    Can't wait to hear what baby #2's Gender is!!!

  5. Beautiful mama! Excited to hear about your gender u/s so soon!!! xx

  6. Ah! You are sooooooo cute!! Love that belly! And girl! Run as long as possible! I had to stop running at 16 weeks with Mia because of my sciatic, but I did spin until like 38 weeks. But I have a friend, who was my running buddy after I had Mia, that ran her whole pregnancy! I thought that was amazing!
    We were sent home with a disc of ultra sound pictures, maybe you could show him that way? I'm so sorry he can't be there!!

  7. You look great and have such a cute little bump!! Can't wait to hear what gender baby is!

  8. Ah, your bump is so cute!! How are you going to tell you families the gender? We are debating on finding out ourselves at the ultrasound or waiting until we tell our families. So exciting!! I almost bought some girl stuff the other day, wallet is not going to be happy if this little person is female (but I can't wait to shop if it is)!! ox

  9. You're the cutest little pregnant girl! I'm so beyond the cute stage...just ready for mine to be here. :) Can't wait to find out the gender and I bet Liam will be just as excited over the pictures you bring home.


I love reading all your comments!
