19 weeks and counting!

Today I’m 19 weeks pregnant! I cannot believe how fast this is going! One more week and we will be halfway!


Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 19 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 6 lbs

Maternity Clothes: I’m wearing maternity pants. I still go between normal and maternity tops

Gender: We find out June 3! I have to say, I have very much been leaning toward this baby being a girl, but now I’m starting to 2nd guess myself and I’m not really sure why! I am able to talk myself into one or the other way too easily!! Let’s just say either way, I know I will be happy, and either way, I’m pretty sure I’ll be surprised!

Movement: I felt this sweet baby very early – and would feel it for a bit and then go several days without feeling it. The movements are getting much more frequent now – and I am starting to notice jabs and kicks instead of just flutters!

Sleep: ugh! I am still SO tired! I fall asleep very easily but may wake up in the middle of the night and be awake for a couple of hours!

What I miss: I’ve really been wanting a margarita lately – maybe a margarita flavored snow cone will suffice?! :)

Cravings: I haven’t had any consistent cravings this time. I will crave something and then once I get it, I am satisfied and I start craving something else! So weird!

Symptoms: Just really tired! Every once in a while, I’ll have a random wave of nausea that passes really quickly.

Another thing I want to remember about this stage – Just this morning, Ava started talking about the baby in Ava’s belly! I asked her where her baby was and she patted her belly! And then she said her belly was “too big”! Guess little ears are always listening! ;) I’m so excited to be able to talk to her about her brother or sister. She is coming with us to the ultrasound and I can’t wait to see what she says/does/etc!!


  1. She will LOVE the ultrasound! :) Caddy went to our 4-d u/s and still talks about going to "Mommy's hospital" and seeing pictures of Maggie. She also had a baby in HER belly (named Maggie, too), as did Minnie Mouse. As far as I know, though, neither of them have had their babies yet. :)

    Can't wait to hear the big news! :)

  2. Getting so close! Can't wait to find out! :)

  3. You look great! :) Keep enjoying this pregnancy!

  4. June 3rd is just NEXT WEEK!! Oh I can't wait!!....Ok, well I guess I'll have to wait. Maybe Ava will let me go with her to the ultrasound! ;)

  5. Can I just say that you stink (re: the weigh gain)!!! I can't wait to find out the gender of mine either! You took the words right out of my mouth re: the cravings.

  6. OMG! Ava is getting SO big! I swear she's grown since I saw her in April!! You look BEAUTIFUL! Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or girl!!! :)

  7. That is so funny! Paiton thinks she has a baby in her tummy too! They are so cute at this age!
