Catching Up!

May 24, 2016 2 Comments

Since I’ve been slacking on updates, here’s one to catch everyone up on weeks 16-19!

How far along: Nineteen weeks, 3 days.
Gender: It’s a BOY! I’ll post the reveal video at the end of this post.
Weight gain: About 4-5 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Pretty much all maternity, except a few tops here and there.
Stretch marks: None, yet, still using the cocoa butter cream. But sometimes I do forget.
Belly button in or out: In.
Sleep: Not having as easy of a time falling asleep and I wake up several times throughout the night to change position.
Best moment this week: Getting more confident that I’m feeling movement! I still question it every time, but I’m definitely more convinced that it’s him and not just gas. Haha.
Worst moment this week: A lot of gas and indigestion.
Miss anything: Still nothing.
Movement: Pretty confident that I’m feeling movement, especially when I’m laying in bed, or sitting for a while. It’s faint still, since he only weighs about 1/2 a pound.
Cravings: French fries and Eggo waffles.
Queasy or sick: Still a little queasy in the mornings, especially now that I’m completely off of Diclegis (the medication I was given for the nausea/vomiting). But nothing too terrible.
Looking forward to: The next ultrasound, which is the anatomy scan! We go in on June 2nd!

Since I last updated we found out that we’re having a boy, officially named him, ordered his crib quilt, and started planning out the nursery decor. My next doctor’s appointment is next Thursday and I’m extremely excited to see this little guy again. I’ve been pretty anxious in the last couple of weeks, since it’s been about 3 weeks since we’ve seen him, and I haven’t been 100% convinced that I feel movement yet. I know it’s still early for movement, and he’s still very small, so I’m trying not to panic over it too much.

I have set up a schedule for myself to post blogs a few times a week, which I’m hoping will help me stay on track!

Here’s me at 19 weeks!
