*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 mark..one 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).
