19 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 
19 weeks (and 2 days)

Size of baby: 
Most info says average size is about 6 inches from head to rump and average weight is about 8.5 ounces.  However, our little girl was already measuring 7 inches long from head to rump and 9 ounces a week ago, so who really knows?

Total Weight Gain/Loss: + or -
I have gained 5 pounds so far.  (No weight gain this week....yaaaaay!)

Maternity Clothes:
Oh yes!  I just got a second pair of the Gap Long and Lean maternity jeans in the mail and they are fabulous!  I even discovered on Monday that the Old Navy at Clay Terrace in Indy has a small maternity section, so I bought myself 3 new tops, 2 maternity tank tops and a free-flowing maternity lightweight cardigan.


Oh yes....this one is a mover!  I used to just feel her at night when I was laying in bed, but I feel her all the time all day long now!  Her kicks and punches are definitely stronger than they were and I can't wait for her to get bigger and kick me harder!

Not too terrible, aside from still getting up at least 1-3 times to pee at night.

What I miss:
Being able to wear my normal tops without having to constantly pull them down over my belly and having a drink with the girls after work.

Pretty much anything at this point.  I still can't do chicken at all, but everything else is on the table.

It's pretty uncomfortable to lean forward while sitting or to bend over.  Other than that, I'm feeling a lot more like myself.

Best Moment this week: 
Finding out that our little miracle is absolutely perfect!
