How far along: 19 weeks (11/08/2012)
Weight Gain: 7 lbs total (I couldn't believe the doctor said I had gained as much weight as I have! I know it's still well within reason, just shocking to have gained about 3 lbs in a week. I'll blame it on my work trip to North Carolina.)
Produce Aisle: Approximately the size of a mango -like last week just a little bigger (6.5 in & 10 oz)
Maternity Clothes: I haven't added any more maternity pieces, but I know a winter coat is on the horizon. I just need to find the right coat. I'm hoping to snag something online because I am just not finding anything in this darn city without Gap Maternity or Pea in the Pod.
Stretch Mark: Still no stretch marks! PTL!!!
Belly Button In or Out: Still an innie....for now.
Sleep: I have added the body pillow to our bed! I'm no longer comfortable sleeping on my back and have moved to swapping from side-to-side.
Best Moment of the Week: Josh and I tested out strollers, infant car seats, baby carriers & diaper bags at Buy Buy Baby on Friday. It was actually kind of fun. They have these creepy weighted babies so that you can get a real sensation for what it will be like with our actual baby. Here's a picture of Josh and one of the carriers.
Movement: The movement is increasing. I'm starting to know where baby is inside. Josh hasn't been able to feel any movement from the outside, but I'm guessing that will change soon.
Food Cravings: Still no real cravings. I ended up taking the remainder of our Halloween candy to the office to get it out of my reach!
Gender: The countdown is ON!!!!!! Less than 6 days. I'm sure I will not be sleeping much this week until we find out on Saturday.
What I miss: Not a lot!
What I'm looking forward to: Getting to see Peanut on the big screen in 2 weeks!
Symptoms: I'm starting to feel the gravitational pull of my belly...especially when bending over. It's awesome.
Emotions: I got lost twice in one day and thankfully Josh's calm far outweighs my crazy.
Prayer (we are praying a whole host of things, including scripture, over this pregnancy and our Peanut every day -I thought I would share one from our list each week): We present this child to you as a living sacrifice, Almighty God. In the spirit of Hannah, accept our child in Jesus' name.
