I also promise to update on ALL the house projects we have been doing. I don't think I explained my absence on the blog (in case anyone cares); you see I work in manufacturing for the pool industry; which basically means from March until about 4th of July its like Christmas Eve at the North Pole. We are slammed; and with being pregnant this year, the last thing I add to my ever growing list when I get home is do anything but put my sweats on and try to relax!
So here is a picture update on the last few weeks and a full update on how I am feeling up to last week!
Once I take my 20 week pic - I will have that up to!
For all you pregnant mommas out there, or mommas with kiddos - God Bless You. This is harder than it looks - but equally so fun and amazing. I mean I am growing a human...trippy...
How far along? In the last picture 19 weeks 6 days! Almost halfway done!
Baby Size: The size of a MANGO! And now...I want a Mango. It really is that easy...
Total weight gain: At my 18 week appointment I tipped the scale at just about 4 pounds gained. It has been over a week and a half - so maybe another pound or two - thanks a lot mint chocolate chip ice cream...
Maternity clothes? Yes...some. Shirts are harder and harder to fit into from my pre-pregnancy days, you really do need longer shirts.
Stretch marks? No, I am borderline psycho about lotion.
Sleep: Good, besides the water fountain that goes off every 2 hours while I am sleeping that leads me to pray I make it to the bathroom without tripping and waking B & Raz...
Best moment this week: A truck driver that picks up material at our plant asked me if it was just him or "was I sprouting" - I think was the actual term... kinda weird, kinda amazing. B goes with weird. I do think when people notice its nice.
Miss Anything? Alcohol, and this morning I had a craving for sushi. Yep, 7am alligator spicy roll craving...Damn you raw meat.
Movement: Why yes - gummy is squirming around in there little jabs at night. They feel like bad gas but I was told by my doc that it is in fact my little gums...
Food cravings: The weirdest thing was pickles and mint chocolate chip ice cream at the same time. Bizarre.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No not at all. I am eating pretty normal, which I am very thankful for.
Gender: Not yet. Test scheduled for June 10th! Reveal party being thrown by my dear sweet bestie Jen on the 14th! OMG can't wait! What do you all think???
Labor Signs: I mean come on...NO.
Symptoms: Since I stated taking Magnesium supplement before bed every night my headaches have been SO much better, so if you suffer from migraines - pregnant or not, I would suggest trying Magnesium! It really helps.
Belly Button in or out? In - but WAY borderline. I am scared for when it pops completely out...and when can I expect it to go back in??
Wedding rings on or off? On, everything is totally normal on that front!
Mood: I am feeling great! I have been working out to keep myself feeling normal. Weight training and stretching at home to keep things loose and then TIGHT. Gotta keep that locked up ladies...no jiggle.
Looking forward to: Getting to find out Gummy's gender! I am so excited - I want to start decorating the nursery! Lets goooooooooo!
