Week 19

Hudson belly week 19 2  Hudson belly week 19 7

Hudson belly week 19 8

*I guess I went a little overboard with the pictures this week  and I have a very messy counter :)

How far along? 19 Weeks

Baby's size? The size of a Mango

Weight Gain? I am up about 1 pound from the last update so a total of 10 pounds right now. I seem to be gaining a pound a week lately but I hope it slows down a bit. Overall as long as he is healthy I'm okay with it.

Maternity clothes?   Totally! I have been wearing Maternity pants for a while but lately I am realizing that I am going to need to get some more shirts soon..more for the length than anything else.

Stretch marks? none yet

Belly button in or out? still very in! It doesn’t seem to have changed too much.

Sleep? I used the snoggle for the first time and it worked pretty good. I am not using it every night but I am sure that will change soon.

Foods I am loving? Still Watermelon and steak. I have also been eating a lot of turkey chili (made by yours truly). It fills me up and has a lot of different sources of protein. Oh and my sweet tooth has totally come back so that has been hard to fight! Oh and all of the sudden I am totally craving coffee again.

Foods I am hating? None really right now.

Best moment this week? Feeling what I think is the first few flutters.

Movement? I think so. It is hard to tell but there were a few times where I was pretty sure it was the Hudster :)

Symptoms? I am still taking zofan so that has really helped with the nausea. 

Gender? A Boy :)

What I miss? As always I miss long runs (I wont say anymore on that). I am now missing sleeping on my back. I also miss diet coke and coffee.

What I'm looking forward to? Seeing little Hudson on Monday!! I am having the Targeted Ultrasound so I get to see more of him than usual..I am very excited and also a little nervous. 

Milestone: Getting closer to the 1/2 way more week to go!

Emotions: I think I had somewhat of a turnaround with my negative feelings about growing bigger. I am still not thrilled but I am really just so excited to meet the little guy and have him healthy that growing bigger dims in comparison. I still get nervous when I step on the scale or when clothes don’t fit but I am learning to just take a deep breath and move on. I also have to add that this week I am just been nervous that Hudson is doing okay. I feel myself getting bigger but I still don’t feel him that much and I keep getting myself worked up that something is wrong. I always get like this right before my dr’s appointments. I am just trying to give it all over to God (since he is the one that made this miracle happen in the first place).


  1. Your little bump is so cute! I just bought some maternity shirts and I love them!! They make me look more pregnant and less like I have some pudge going on - if that makes any sense! I like the Liz Lange ones from Target!

  2. You look so great! And YAY for flutters! That is so exciting!

  3. You look so good and I'm so excited for you! Boys are the sweetest :) I don't think I could have made it without zofran either...just hang in there and enjoy the ride momma!

  4. I was the exact same way before appointments...I'd always get all worked up and nervous that something would be wrong. But I realized I was doubting the Lord and what HE was doing, so I just had to pray any time I had the slightest bit of anxiety. Being pregnant transformed my prayer life! But I totally know what you mean. And I wouldn't be too worried about not feeling movement. Some babies are less active than others. Depending on wear he likes to hang out in your uterus and the way it's shaped...all of that can affect when you start feeling movement.

    And I love the bump! So cute!!! And for the record, you totally look preggo and not chubby at all ;)

  5. I used to get all panicky about whether Wyatt was okay too - I think it's normal! You look great, and not very big at all! Just like a cute little pregnant lady. :-)

  6. You're precious with your tiny belly:) And I remember those panicky feelings! I understand them, totally!

  7. Your little bump is too cute! Looking great girl!

  10. Aww you look gorgeous and your belly is just so cute! Happy for you that you get to see your little bundle of joy on Monday. Let's get together soon, xoxo.
