  • How far along: 19 weeks 2 days, so surprised that I am almost half-way done. At this point I feel like I could stay pregnant forever but we'll see how long that feeling lasts. 



  • Weighty Issues: Now at 120 woot woot! Definitely the only time I've been so excited about weight gain.  Total weight gain= 6 lbs (including the 2 I gained back) I am right on track with my gaining yay!



  • Sleep: Extra tired this week, so I've been trying to sleep more.



  • Best Moment This Week: I've been a little down this week but was brightened by the package I got of a couple things I ordered for baby including: baby's first bottle (so daddy can feed baby too, I plan on breastfeeding)

  • Lifefactory Glass Baby Bottle with Silicone Sleeve, Spring Green, 4 Ounce

    and baby's first cloth diaper (we want to try doing a combo of disposable and cloth diapers since you can save a lot)
    bumGenius One-Size Cloth Diaper 4.0 - Grasshopper - Hook & Loop

    also got a couple books recommended to me on natural birthing

    Husband-Coached Childbirth (Fifth Edition): The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

    Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way: Revised Edition

    excited to start reading those in addition to the million other pregnancy books I'm reading :)


  • Food Commentary: Less cravings surprisingly! I kinda miss them. A lot of foods sound boring to me. Sometimes its hard for me to intentionally eat, other times I'm starving. Hard to explain... 



  • Maternity Clothes: Bought more maternity tops but desperately in need of more bottoms. Pre-prego jeans feel awkward and uncomfortable but it seems nowhere can I find my size in store. Also got these amazing and cheap open wrap knit things for $6 each at Old Navy in 3 different colors. Old Navy also had a maternity and baby sale going on at the same time and I got this for baby and a couple other items.





  • Belly Button In or Out: Almost flat. Thankfully I don't think I have enough belly button for it to pop out much. 



  • What I miss: Energy, the little peanut must be growing extra this week. 



  • What I'm looking forward to: Still waiting on finding out the sex of our baby. We have been having issues with my insurance which should be worked out very soon. Can't wait to plan the nursery, My aunt and I might conspire on sewing and quilting bedding for babers but we shall see cause there are a few sets I already love but we might be able to replicate them some how. Also can't wait to think more seriously about names for baby once we find out its sex. 



  • Weekly Wisdom: Make time for myself to relax. I called in sick yesterday, it was needed I was so worn out from this week physically and emotionally for unknown reasons. 



  • Nesting: The above mentioned purchases... plus I'm sure more. Its addicting and uh I work in a baby store, I usually only buy things that are under $5-7 dollars though. Sorry to my friends that like buying baby clothes as gifts, this is probably the last thing baby needs lol. Sadly since Borders is closing in our town I got a few baby books on super sale this week, including this one for $1



  • In My Meadow (In My... (Chronicle))


  • Milestones: Baby is the size of a mango in length! More 19 weeks info
