Survey Says: 19 weeks preggers

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Holla!  Another week down.  Getting so freaking pumped that tomorrow I will be 20 weeks and OFFICIALLY halfway there to meeting my handsome baby boy :)

This week has been pretty decent but just seemed to draggggg on.  I think it didn't help knowing next week was going to be a short week since Russell, his dad, and I will be flying out to Notre Dame for the first football game of the season.  I am super pumped not just about the game, but FINALLY having some vacay days off and a lonnng Labor Day weekend.

Oh and baby Ryan is going to get the HOOK UP on Notre Dame gear.  Yes, Russell and I already are discussing his future as a Notre Dame football player.  Poor Ryan, he has no chance of being a football fan of any other team....and yet, I am okay with that!

Here is the week 19 recap..enjoy :)

Survey says...

Written Thursday, Aug. 23

How far along?: 19 weeks and 6 days

Total weight gain/loss:  Ummm, so I am kinda blown away that I gained 3lbs since last week.  Granted I am still doing great weight gain wise but damn!  Granted, my appetite picked up like whoa and my belly has gotten bigger but I was a little shocked.  I am just hoping for no more consecutive 3lb-ers each week.  Lets just stick to the 1lb a week deal.   Hmmmm.  Total is at 8lbs now.

Maternity clothes?:  I am about 50/50….Mostly maternity on my bottoms.

Sleep:  For a couple days this week I tossed and turned bc little babe decided to kick at night but I honestly didn’t mind at all. 

Best moment of the week:  Found out Ryan really likes chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream J  I ate it and his kicks went crazy, hahaa.

Movement:  I feel him every day now but not all day long but he is getting stronger.

Food Cravings:  Good lord.  If you read the “weigh gain/loss” section you will see that food was my friend this past week.  Cravings were all over the place.  From crab dip to chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, food was my frienemy.  Good thing I was also eating lots of fruits, 
Kiwi and Peaches have helped.

Gender:  Little man.

Belly Button: Still hanging in there.

Stretchmarks?:  Nope

What I miss:  All my friends and family back home in VA.  I just want to go see everyone!

What I am looking forward to: Doc appt on Monday to see if the placenta issue has resolved or if I am still on rest.  But I do get to see my little man during the ultrasound so yay for that!

Weekly Wisdom: Ryan is the size of a mango!  Grow baby grow!

Milestones: I don’t think there was really a “milestone” this week but it was all in all a great week.
Until next time folks!

XOXOX, Sherri
