19 Weeks - Bump Date

How far along: 19 Weeks (21 more weeks to go!!!!)

Baby Size: The size of a large heirloom tomato, 8.5 oz. and is 6 inches long

Weight gain:  0!!  I gained 2 pounds for the week, so we are even to what I started out with in January

Maternity clothes: Maternity pants and maternity leggings.  I am having a hard time finding anything that I like shirt wise right now too.  Some of my normal clothes make me just look fat and some of my maternity clothes don't fit right in the belly area.  In a couple weeks I should really start to look pregnant instead of that in-between look

Stretch marks: None so far! 
Sleep: Not too bad at all!  Getting up once a night to use the bathroom but that's about it.
Gender: It's a BOY!

Movement: I think I've felt baby Boy move a couple times, but it's nothing consistent yet.  Can't wait to feel him consistently!!

Best moment this week: I can't think of anything at this moment, but that doesn't mean I am having a bad week.
Looking forward to: Easter Sunday with all of the family and feeling baby Boy move around consistently

Food cravings: still loving those Cola slushies, fresh fruit and veggies, Mexican food and BBQ.  Most out to eat food choices of mine right now are Mexican or BBQ.
  Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Labor Signs: None
What I miss: Being able to breathe without a stuffy nose and not having sciatic nerve pain.  Allergies have really kicked me in the rear this past week and I've given up and started taking Zyrtec to help with the allergies.
Symptoms: I can tell that baby Boy is growing and moving into my diaphram because I sometimes have a hard time catching a full breath, I think it also has to do with my stuffy nose and allergies.  Sciatic nerve pain is still there, but Andy showed me a stretch that I can do to help with the pain.  It does help, but I don't have the time to do the stretch every time the nerve hurts.

Nursery: It's painted!!!  We are on a hold to start the furniture until May because the next 2 weekends we are booked up!

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Mood: HORMONES!!!!  Those hormones are no joke and sadly Andy is finding out the hard way.....sorry babe!!  No joke, I am on the phone with Andy on Tuesday and I am miserable because I couldn't breath and the pressure in my head was killing me, I suddenly burst into tears for a good 30 seconds and then I am done....never done that before.  Remember in the movie, "Knocked Up" where Seth Rogan's character yells, "F You Hormones, F You!"......yeah I'm pretty sure that's what Andy is saying in his head.  Again, sorry Andy, LOVE YOU!!!!

You look great! I craved tacos when I was pregnant with Mac. It was crazy! And speaking of crazy...hormones are no joke. Just wait until after the baby gets here when your hormones are trying to work themselves back to normal. Be just might get worse before it gets better. :)

My movement started about 17/18 weeks, but was just once every now and then. A little past 20 it picked up like crazy and now at 30 weeks.. she is big and moves constantly!! It's to the point of more rolling and elbowing instead of the bouncing jabs. It's crazy how much the movement feelings change over time. You'll have it soon! :)
