19 Weeks

Now that things are progressing a little more (bump-wise, movement-wise, etc) I will start doing the pregnancy highlights each week instead of just the pictures.  I figured GrandLaLa and Grandma Gloria would appreciate that!!

Little Weiglet is the size of a mango again this week, just a bit of a bigger mango!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 19 weeks
Size of baby: 10 inches and 10 oz

Total Weight Gain: hmm, after my appointment today and seeing the scale, I don't think I'm going to be doing this one anymore!  :-)

Maternity Clothes: I'm able to still wear all my normal shirts (thank goodness I started buying loose, flow-y tops about 2 years ago!).  I have a couple pair of maternity jeans that are great!  Unfortunately, since I only have 2 pair (with another one in the mail on its way to me) and our washing machine is out of commission for another week or so, I'm still having to pour myself into my pre-pregnancy jeans with the belly band.  It's just not as comfortable as having the maternity ones on!

Gender: BOY!!!  Robert William!

Movement:  YES!  I felt him for the first time last Monday.  I wasn't sure if it was actually him or not because everyone had told me it would feel like little flutters, but this was more like gas bubbles, but without any pain.  It was odd!  But after a couple of days of feeling it, I realized it really was him!  This past Sunday night Tim was able to feel him kick (or punch).  It was great!

Sleep: I wake up pretty often throughout the night, but that's normal for me.  Thankfully, I'm able to take a nap during the day when I get tired.
Symptoms: Actually I had to ask Tim if I was having any pregnancy symptoms because I couldn't think of any.  Bless his heart he said "Just your occasional emotional outbursts"!  Haha!  Thankfully they don't come on very often and it's just crying (not anger or anything like that).  The problem is, once I start crying about something, whether it's legit or not, I can't stop.  Every little thing makes me cry more and more.  This probably happens once a week or so.
Food Cravings/Aversions:  I still crave the occasional taco bell!!  So bad, I know!!
What I am looking forward to:  Tim being able to feel Robby kick some more, my belly growing more so that I can look pregnant and not just fat!

First off, you DO NOT look fat! You look adorable! Pregnancy looks great on you!

Second, isn't it just amazing feeling that little one inside you. It just never gets old!
