19 Week Interview
How far along? 19 weeks 4 days
Baby’s size? An mango or a large tomato. Read more.
Days until next doc appointment? 8 days
Total weight gain/loss? Somewhere around 6-8 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Lovin’ em.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: I sleep best on the couch I’ve discovered. I use a boppy wedge to support my belly (or sometimes my back to prevent rolling), a body pillow on one side of me and between my legs, and the fluffy couch keeps me from being able to roll out on my belly or my back.
Best moment this week: Seeing baby’s growth and good measurements via ultrasound! And finding out she’s a girl (reaction here) and sharing the news with family and friends. :) Second to that was my first prenatal yoga class - loved it!
Movement: Still little pinches and jabs occasionally. Want to feel more!
Food cravings: Been craving rice and dishes from my childhood, like Okasu. Also, had a bad craving for McDs. Thankfully that was short-lived.
Anything make you queasy or sick? Dog food. Bad.
Have you started to show yet? Yep. Growing right along. Sometimes I feel like it’s not even there and other days I feel like my belly’s taking over.
Missing anything? Today, it’s sleep.
Labor signs? Thankfully no.
Belly button: In tact. But why so much belly fuzz ugh.
Wedding rings on or off? Depends on the day. Because it’s hot, usually only wearing my bands.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy happy! I only get down when I’m running low on energy or food.
Weekly symptoms: Still evening heartburn. I got a recommendation from yoga class to try either apple cider vinegar (tried it once, yucky, but worked) or mango (or was it papaya? have I mentioned baby brain?) extract. I think I’ll buy some of that this week to try.
Um and yes, baby brain setting in hard core. So frustrating. :P
Looking forward to: Starting Bradley classes this weekend!
