Baby Bump: 19 Weeks!

Posted By admin On December 13, 2013 @ 11:21 am In baby | 8 Comments


Yikes, you guys, I have gotten so behind on these — as I sit here, I’m actually 21 weeks and just getting around to posting my 19 week photos!  Things have just been nuts here — in a really good way, of course, but there is SO much to do before the baby comes!  I’ve had a crazy few weeks with lots of work (which is great) and with the holidays coming up, I’ve definitely fallen a little behind with everything non-law-related!  So this update will be pretty quick, but here’s where I am:

How far along? 19 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: About 12 pounds.  I’ve gained almost exactly a pound per week since the end of the first trimester, which I think is right on track. 

Maternity clothes? Maternity pants and regular tops or dresses.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Symptoms: Oh my gosh, this was a scary one.  I’d been eating bananas and coconut water to avoid cramps for a while, and then I stopped for a little bit (just out of business/laziness) and suddenly got a terrible abdominal cramp that woke me up in the middle of the night.  It was awful, but it went away quickly and I didn’t have any other symptoms, so when I asked my doctor about it, she said it probably isn’t anything to worry about.  So scary though!

Sleep: Eh.  Not so great. 

Best moment this week: Being a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding!  It was so great to see our extended family and celebrate!  (Also: I passed the gestational diabetes test!  So that was a big relief!)

Worst moment of the week: Being stuck on the tarmac for hours as the snow/ice in DC delayed our return to Texas.  Boo!

Have you told family and friends: Yes!

Miss Anything? My clothes!  Sometimes I see a dress that would have looked super cute pre-pregnancy and it bums me out that I can’t wear them anymore.  Hopefully I’ll be back to them soon though!

Movement: Tons!  Every few hours usually — when I don’t feel anything for more than a few hours, I start to get nervous!

Food cravings: None this week!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!

Have you started to show yet: People tell me I’m hardly showing, but it really depends on what I’m wearing.  When I’m in something tight, it’s really obvious!

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: Christmas!  Also, having the baby’s room finished — we are starting to get close as the pieces I ordered come in!
