19 Weeks - I'm sick. Boo.

Forgive my puffy face. I picked up a terrible cold/cough from my family in AZ :(

How far along: 19w.
Total weight gain/loss: +8 pounds
How big is Baby: Baby is about the size of a mango, or 6 inches long!

Maternity Clothes: Yes! I need more shirts. Shopping trip this weekend :)
Sleep: Sleep is okay. Still waking up several times a night to switch sides, and sometimes to pee.
Movement: Still nothing definite, just some popping/bubbly feelings. Dr. L has assured me that it's coming very soon!
Food cravings: Chicken strips. Carne asada. Turkey & swiss sandwiches.
Food aversions: Just raw meat. I can't handle it so I still haven't started cooking again.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: Round Ligament Pain. Morning sickness. Vivid, weird dreams. Feeling dizzy & off balance. Peeing all.the.time.
Best moment this week: Our anatomy scan. Watching Nick talk to baby. He calls him "poofy" because babies have those adorable fat rolls on their arms & legs :)
What I am looking forward to: Feeling more movement!!! Swimming. I have always loved to swim and can't wait to start again.

I cannot believe I am 19 weeks!!! Just one more week to the half-way mark. Wow. I am really enjoying this pregnancy. I wouldn't trade anything for this experience and I am just so thankful each and every day to be here. We are planning a few weekend trips before his arrival; to see family in Ojai in a few weeks, with friends to the San Diego Wild Animal Park and just the two of us up to San Francisco, our favorite weekend getaway spot, for a "baby moon." Life is good.


  1. I smile so much when I see these updates :) You look beautiful :)

  2. You look fantastic. Can't believe you're almost halfway there!

  3. Your belly is so cute and totally growing! :) Dang you were in AZ? We should have met up! :) Did you ever get that pregnancy pillow?? I finally got one and tried it last night! Not sure I loved it but wanted to know how it went for you? Happy 19 weeks! Half way missy!

  4. Your bump is so cute! Can't believe your just about halfway there. Before you know it he will be here.

  5. You look so happy and adorable! And enjoy the swimming!! I was a lifeguard for seven years and miss swimming so much but can't afford membership with IF costs. I'm sure it will be great!

  6. You look great! I can't believe you're almost half way there...amazing!
