This week flew by! We spent the weekend in Santa Cruz, I did hair and makeup for a super romantic City Hall elopement (my favorite!), I enjoyed a prenatal massage, and I really started tackling the re-organization of our second bedroom. (It’s surprisingly hard to turn an office/storage room into a nursery…) Today is all about packing for our trip to Salt Lake City and tonight I’m taking my first prenatal yoga class… yay!
How far along? 19 Weeks
Baby is the size of: A mango
Total weight gain: I’m still up 1 pound. Kind of amazing that I didn’t gain any weight this week… I couldn’t stop eating!
Gender: It’s a girl :)
Name: We have a name, but we’re not monogramming anything or making it totally official until we meet her.
Maternity Clothes: They’re pretty much all I wear! I bought a bunch of super long non-maternity tank tops, which have also been a godsend.
Stretch marks? None
Sleep: I’ve been doing pretty well, sleep-wise. I’m only taking occasional naps and I’m usually able to stay up til 10 (which might not seem like a big deal, but it is by pregnancy standards!! haha)
Movement: This little lady is a WILD one! She moves like crazy— rolling, kicking, head-butting, and wiggling away. Travis has been able to feel it more regularly, which is fun. She seems to be the most active when he’s at work, go figure. Last night, she started kicking inward toward my spine and other organs… THAT was not so fun. A friend told me to use an ice pack to get her to move when her kicks are uncomfortable; good to know!
Best moment this week: We scored on an awesome stroller this week! We went to the local flea market during our Santa Cruz visit, and someone was selling the stroller we were planning to register for— BRAND NEW, with tags on it! We love it and I can’t wait to tote her all around :)
Miss Anything: I’ve been dreaming about taking a babymoon the past few days and I’ve been missing the beautiful resort we stayed in on Maui for our honeymoon. I’m hoping we can squeeze a little getaway in before I’m too pregnant to fly…
Belly button in or out? In
Food cravings: Ugh, yes… I found myself SERIOUSLY craving fried chicken last Friday, so we went to Chili’s for dinner (I know, super romantic). Five minutes after finishing my meal (we were literally still in the restaurant), I calmly said, “I’m gonna need to throw this up.” Aaaaand I did. Apparently greasy foods and pregnancy don’t mix. I suppose it’s all for the best…
Anything making you queasy or sick: See above :)
Labor Signs: just the occasional Braxton Hicks
Symptoms: Super hungry, I’m constantly battling the breakouts, and my stomach has been suuuuper itchy this week. I’m slathering on cocoa butter daily… pleeeease, no stretch marks!!
Wedding ring on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time: I was muuuuch moodier this week. Damn hormones! It’s so frustrating to know that you’re being irrational but to have no control over it. Travis is such a champ.
Looking forward to: Our trip to Salt Lake City this weekend! (Although, I’m a little nervous about flying while pregnant… who knows how this new body will react. Fingers crossed that it’s an easy trip.)
Since we’re flying out tomorrow, I won’t be posting again til next week. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xo
