19 weeks!

We're half way through! Hard to believe....!

Now this may seem a little confusing since I am 19 weeks. Well, I have been doing these posts based on gestational age. So, the baby is 19 weeks and 4 days. Meaning I am in my 20th week of pregnancy. so, baby and I are half way! Get it? maybe?

We've had a very busy and exciting week or so. In addition to the ultrasound and finding out we are having a little girl, I've been feeling the baby move a lot more and we've made lots of progress in the nursery. More on that in another post but the painting should be done tomorrow!!!! I have been feeling the baby wiggle around more and more. Before the ultrasound I wasn't sure the little feelings were the baby but ever since I've really noticed her moving a lot. I think it helps that I saw her move so I was sure it really was her that I was feeling. Now if she could kick a little harder so Carl could feel it. ;)

Now for some pictures!

The giant box in the background is the crib! I can't wait to set it up in the newly painted nursery!

As my friend's mom said the other night I "look pregnant!" :)

How far along: 19 weeks and 4 days

Net weight gain: going to the doctors tomorrow to find out!

Maternity clothes: all maternity clothes in these pictures, heading more and more that way...

Stretch marks: none, phew

Belly button: still an innie

Sleep: lots of vivid dreams waking me up

Food cravings: nothing recently, just hungry and enjoying my mother-in-laws strawberry pie

Food aversions: similar to above, hungry

What I miss: hard cider on the porch after a long day

Looking forward to: putting the last coat of paint on the nursery and setting up the crib!

Best moment this week: seeing our little girl during the ultrasound!

Milestones: baby is as big as a cantaloupe! No wonder I am tired ;)


  1. Wow, I can't believe you are half way through! Can't wait to see the nursery :)

  2. You really do "look pregnant" now! Such a cute bump! It's so great that you're feeling kicks now. That is definitely the thing I miss most about being pregnant. What a special time!

    Can't wait to see the nursery too!!
