How far along? 19 weeks, 2 days
How big is baby? A little larger than 6 inches, and about 1/2 lb. weight-wise.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I think I'm *finally* gaining weight. According to the books I've gained about 10 lbs. My guess is closer to 3 or 4. But, baby is gaining weight steadily, so there's no need for anyone to be concerned.
Next Appointment: Next time I see Dr. X is a month from now. "Big U/S: Take 2" is next week.
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Maternity pants are awesome and I don't care who knows it. And stretchy yoga pants? Being naked is less comfortable than wearing those pants.
Sleep: Eh. The other day I slept really well, and last night I was tossing and turning all night, so I'm a huge crank today. It's hit or miss now. I'm not holding my breath that it will get better until about a year from now when kiddo isn't waking up every 10 minutes or so.
Best Moment This Week: Finalizing our vacation plans, and feeling the baby moving around, especially after dinner last night!
Annoyance of the Week: Hearing, "You don't look pregnant at all!" from everyone I meet. Not sure if they're trying to make me feel better about being pg, or if it looks like I spent one night too many at a fraternity party. Beer gut, much?
Movement: Really amped up this week. Last night I threw some chicken in the crockpot and about an hour after dinner, Junior was moving and grooving to something! Felt like a rave in there, I tell ya.
Planning/Preparation: So much to do, including reading more of those books and signing up for the Great Expectations program at the hospital.
Belly Button In/Out: Flatter than it was, but still an innie. I'll cry A LOT if it pops.
Gender: Inconclusive! But next week! (Hopefully. I pray we won't need to do a Take 3.)
What I Miss: Wine. Summer Shandy. Margaritas.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Our upcoming trip! It's gonna be amazing to get away and relax.
Contractions: Not that I'm feeling.
Milestones? Nothing new this week, which is fine. I guess the kid can hear (supposedly) according to all the books and websites, so Graham says I need to start watching my language. We'll see how successful that is....
