Week 19... there's a tiny bump-- FINALLY!!! Ok, ok... so I've ALWAYS had a bump when I wear this empire-waist dress, but hey-- there's a bump there nonetheless!
Size of Baby: Dude. Every week I continue to be AMAZED at how big the lil' bean is growing. The idea that he/she legit grew from NOTHING to now, at 19 weeks, the size of a large heirloom tomato is BEYOND mind boggling to me. I honestly cannot wrap my head around it. The baby now weights about 8-9 ounces.
Milestone/Anything Exciting: At 19W1D, the first person (who already knew I was pregnant) told me I finally LOOKED pregnant. It was the same day I snapped the above pic. The next day the same person told me I didn't look pregnant anymore. Win some, lose some. I can definitely FINALLY see a bump. It's just it just came outta nowhere all the sudden. I still have that "did you gain 5 pounds or are you preggo??" kinda look, but I'm sure in a few weeks it'll be a full on "WOAH! Look at that preggo belly!" look. Kinda excited for it. :)
Symptoms: Lack of sleep. Still. Again. Still. Bleah. Seriously. It was decent for a week and then went right down the drain again. On average I'm getting about 6 hours a night, waking up at least 10 times throughout the night to re-arrange, use the bathroom, or just because. Way over it.
Weight Gain: Last I weighed myself at the gym I was up 4 pounds. We'll see what the next doctor's appointment says as the official weigh in.
Workouts: Still no running... stupid knee. But, still rocking the elliptical, walks, and 8-minute arms/other strength sessions.
Food Aversions: None really. Salad still doesn't sound super appealing, but not too terrible.
Food Cravings: Nothing super specific or so strong that I have to have it RIGHT NOW.
Stretch Marks: None... new, that is. I already have stretch marks, thank you very much... so, I'm sure I'll get more at some point. I'm OK with it.
Movement: Still haven't felt the peanut. I'm sure it'll happen anytime now.
Waiting For...: First movements and finding out gender!! We find out soon!!
