How far along: 19 weeks
Maternity clothes: Mainly maternity pants or pants with the belly band. One pair of skinnies still fit so I was happy about that! I think they're so low that my growing belly doesn't matter. I can still wear pre-maternity tops but wanting an excuse to add some additional pieces to the wardrobe
Stretch marks: Nope, still slathering on my delish Honest, Co. belly butter
Sleep: sleeping ok. Starting to wake up more in the night to pee
Gender: We find out April 12 with our family and closest friends. YAY!
Movement: Felt the first moves! It was so cool. We were laying in bed Sunday morning and I noticed it. It's so faint still that I can only notice it if I'm still or laying down. Mike was able to feel it too!
Looking forward to: Our appointment this afternoon -- we get to hear the heartbeat again today!
Food cravings: Sweets & breakfast. I had a meltdown and cursed sugar. It's so freaking addicting and I can't stop wanting it. Cursed sugar!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Labor Signs: Nope
What I miss: sitting on the back porch drinking a bottle of wine with Mike after a long day
Symptoms: belly popping out; stuffy nose (allergies I'm sure are contributing to that one), back pains
Nursery: FINALLY cleared out the closet. It is now just baby stuff in there.
Belly Button in or out? In! YAY!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Happy! This past weekend there was this big realization that 'oh crap. our lives are about to seriously change and we'll have to give more thought to things like going to weddings, camping, etc' but I'm OK with that. I will miss the simplicity of the stage we are in now but I know we want a family and I'll never be fully ready anyway until he/she is here. Plus, I'm determined to live simply... we'll see how that goes ;).
Getting rid of workouts because I can't remember what I do and I'm not diligent enough to write it down during the week.
Other ramblings: We're trying to think of a trip to go on pre-baby... a babymoon, if you will. Found great deals for Jamaica but I'd be like 30 weeks along. Too far? Too risky? If that doesn't work, any suggestions in the Outer Banks? I haven't been aside from the ol' middle school field trip but don't know where to look.
Crib mattress -- recommendations? I don't want something drenched in chemicals but can't find anything reasonable.
