Nineteen Weeks and Counting.

nineteenHow far along? Nineteen weeks.

Are you showing? Absolutely.

Gender: Baby BOY #2! 🙂

Total weight gain: Don’t want to talk about it… Up 4 pounds. But my maternity jeans are two sizes smaller than the jeans I wore last year! 🙂

Maternity clothes: Oh yes. Hair tie trick no longer working. I live in my maternity leggings. Invest in some, you wont regret it.

Stretch marks: Just the pre-existing ones. But my lower belly and the ladies are starting to get itchy. Coconut oil, for the win!

Sleeping: Rough. He’s soooo low and is currently using my bladder as a water bed. If I don’t pee right when I have to go, the pressure is overwhelming!

Food Cravings: MILK. And cinnamon toast crunch! Yummm. Excuse me while I refill my bowl… 

Anything making you sick or queasy? Meat. Asher is clearly a vegetarian. 

Miss Anything? Sleep and wine. Grape juice in a wine glass isn’t cutting it! 

Movement: Real kicks! Or punches. Can’t really tell what’s what yet.

Labor signs: Nope! But a ton of pressure sometimes. 

Symptoms: Irritable and tired. Overall uncomfortable because nothing seems to fit right!

Belly Button in or out: Top half is out. -sigh-

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody: All of the above.

Best moments this week: Watching the looks on Drew and Aiden’s faces when they felt Asher kick! SO priceless! ❤ Also, registering with Hubs. He enjoyed it more than he’s willing to admit!

Looking forward to: Enjoying the second half of this pregnancy! It’s flying by so quickly!
