How far along: 19 weeks, 3 days
Maternity clothes: Yes. For some reason I have become “extra-large” this past week. I wear some normal clothes I had before (like this dress I got at Marshall’s) but I am starting to plan on getting a few more pants and shirts so I have a little more variety.
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: I have never slept better. I slept almost 12 hours last night after a long day at the triathlon and then a Zia Velo party.
Best moment this week: Seeing the ultrasound and listening to the heartbeat of our baby GIRL. It was REALLY sad at the ultrasound because they wouldn’t let Mike in (new stupid hospital policy that makes me EXTREMELY angry) but we made a deal to put the gender in an envelope so I would be surprised with him. Mike handled it so well. It was one of my proudest moments as a wife to watch my husband this week and how he handles things. I am so glad to be married to him. P.S. Not to mention he was first place in his triathlon, which makes me even more proud!
Miss anything: Wearing normal clothes and working out.
Morning sickness: None
Movement: Oh yes. She is a feisty thing. If I lay on my right side, she gets to moving around like she is uncomfortable. When we were in the ultrasound, she kept doing spins and somersaults.
Food cravings: This week has been a “sweet” week. I was craving Honey Nut Cheerios too.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just chicken…sometimes.
Have you started to show yet: Yes. Very much thanks to my short torso.
Gender prediction: A girly…
Labor signs: No. I get a little tightness in the belly when I work out so I have to be very careful.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: 50/50. I have found I don’t really have a lot of patience like I used to so I have to be very careful with people. I decided that pregnancy makes me not have a “filter” when it comes to what is on my mind. I also get offended way easily.
Looking forward to: Finding furniture for the baby!
That is so dumb that they wouldn’t let Mike into the ultrasound, I have never heard of that!! But congrats on the your little girl, so excited for you guys!
