19 Weeks

Boring pregnancy = healthy pregnancy = I’ll take it!

This picture makes me realize that I wasn’t as fat as I thought I was before I was pregnant:

  
I find it truly amazing how everything expands and shifts. Even though the “bump” is still questionable depending on what I’m wearing, there is no doubt that my body is changing. I’ve noticed quite a bit of change between weeks 17-19, though I’m still getting quite a bit of “you don’t even look pregnant yet!” I’m pretty sure that will change soon…

For the past two weeks or so, I’ve been cramping, and at times it gets pretty intense to the point that I need to breathe through it. It is mostly on the left side, and though it is not what I imagined round ligament pain to be, I’m guessing that’s what it is. 

I can still sleep on my stomach pretty comfortably if I angle one knee out to the side and put my hand under the opposite hip. When I wake up in the morning, the bump is usually pretty firm and pronounced but once I pee, all bets are off. Speaking of peeing… there’s still quite a bit of that going on, though thankfully not every night!

My appetite seems pretty normal. I am +8 pounds total, which seems a bit alarming to me though as far as I know, it falls within the recommendations for 19 weeks. I’m not eating as healthily as I could but I’m not off the deep end either. 

Last weekend, my parents gave me this adorable onesie. Baby A’s first article of clothing.

  
Mom and I are going crib shopping on Sunday. I just can’t believe I am almost halfway there… It went slow at first, but now time seems to be flying by.

Oooh…!!! And I have definitely felt flutters. Butterflies, top of the roller coaster stuff… so I hope some proper kicks are not too far off!!!

What do I miss?  Alcoholic beverages. Especially now that we are seeing warmer weather.  I’m not ashamed. 

I’m pretty sure Baby is a girl. It feels weird to admit that or to say it out loud, but I am getting definite girl vibes. Even though I was with a 5 year old last weekend who was adamant that it’s a boy named Jack. We are choosing not to find out, so only the big day will tell…!!!

  1. LOL “This picture makes me realize that I wasn’t as fat as I thought I was before I was pregnant” — I feel the same exact way! I’m 30 weeks now, and photos of me pre-pregnancy are actually slightly shocking, like, how was I ever that skinny?! You look awesome 🙂

  2. The Rollercoaster stuff is cray, huh? And good job on 8lbs. I was up 12 and my 19 week appt but my doctor said it’s fine-even though they like to see the weight gain at 20 weeks between 5-7lbs. I think that’s unrealistic! When do you find out what you’re having?

  3. The bump will happen all at once, at least it did for me. You look great!
    I miss alcoholic beverages too!! I’ve been trying to find good substitutes for these warmer days.
