How Far Along? 19 weeks...seriously?!
Total weight gain/loss: I think I'm between 6-9 depending on the day
Maternity clothes? yes and I love them...why don't they make all clothes this comfortable!????
Stretch Marks? I'm forever going to be scared! Though they look lighter to me. :)
Sleep: pretty good this week, during the day has gotten better. But it's been hard because I have this horrible cough AGAIN!
Best moment this week: Finding out ADAM IS GOING TO BE IN TOWN THIS WEEK!!! he has been out of town since early march, only coming home on the weekends and even then its usually only sundays because he works saturdays too. And I think in a few weeks they will be going to mandatory saturdays...don't get me wrong the money is nice, but I'd rather have him home.
Movement: yes, this has to be my favorite part of pregnancy. I love getting to feel the little pops and kicks all to myself!! My mind is put at ease and I know our baby is growing!!
Food aversions: none
Gender: I'm still thinking boy, though a girl would be nice...except for the clothing thing...
Labor Signs: none yet thank goodness, but I have been getting more and more contractions through the day but it's just those pesky braxton hicks things...and i forgot to write on here that those started around week 15...a little earlier than last time
Belly Button in or out? never went out with little man...so still in!
What I miss: I miss nothing really. Just trying to enjoy everything one day at a time.
What I am looking forward to: Seeing family this upcoming weekend for my cousin Jaclyn's graduation from college party!
Size of the Baby:
Baby's now the size of a mango!
Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil, and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature.
