19 Weeks

Baby's size: An heirloom tomato. Weighs 8 1/2 ounces and is 6 inches long, from head to bottom.

Belly size: About 35" around my belly. Not much growth from last week.

Cravings: I've actually been pretty good about that this week. No cravings. I finished my marshmallows last week and haven't had any more.

Mood: Good. Just really nervous about the anatomy scan tomorrow.

Symptoms: Some back pain if I stand, walk, or sit in one position for too long, but I'm feeling pretty good.

Go to clothing: So, I've decided that it's not so much the clothes that I hate, it's this giant stomach. It doesn't look good in anything! I'm glad that the weather is picking up, though and I can wear dresses and skirts. This one here isn't maternity, but it definitely works like it is. For now anyway. Hey, quick question. Does my bulky jewelry and big boots distract you from looking at my growing belly? No? Crap.....

Sleep: Once I fall asleep, I've been good. I'm not really having trouble sleeping because of any physical issues I'm having, it's more that I'm super nervous/anxious about the ultrasound tomorrow.

Baby movement: Still feeling movement, but I think the baby got in a funny position for a few days in a row this past week and I had a hard time feeling the kicks so much.

***Jackson wanted to participate in the picture taking this time. Here's his "bump" picture. He also wanted to be the one to take pictures of Mommy, so here's those....


  1. I think your bump is adorable! And it looks like you're carrying high....girl, maybe? Good luck tomorrow!

  2. Thanks Jenn! I'm carrying MUCH higher than last time around. I'm so nervous there's no way I'll sleep tonight, but in about 12 hours I'll know!!!
