{technically two?, since we're going on 3/8 at the end of 20w}

that deserves two thumbs up folks!

^^ my shirt now sticks out at the bottom, lol!

How far along? 19weeks! 
Baby is the size of: a bell pepper! (finally a fruit/veggie i know!)
Total weight gain: 8 lbs! a total of 4 up to week 12, and 4 more so far since week 12!
Maternity clothes? since week 6 baby.     
Stretch marks? none yet!
Sleep: not too hot this past week. i usually sleep with the extra AC unit on in our room because i love to be cold (plus the noise), but my boogers and bloody noses have been out of control. i also know i wont be able to have it on blasting at 61 degrees when baby is here, so i've decided to try sleeping with it off. and, it sucks.
Best moment this week: HOLY SHIT. i didnt tell you!!!! WE FELT BABY MOVE! well, maybe isaiah did? but i surely did!!! on 2/24 during the oscars! i was nuzzled up in bed propped on my pillows just watching the oscars with isaiah and my tummy started spinning a bit. i thought it was going to be gas BUT IT WASNT! it was truly the little babe fluttering around! it felt like he was riding a surf board on a wave. ripples tingles flutters. my tummy is an ocean! hands down, best moment thus far.

Miss Anything? jimmy johns like you wouldnt believe. and having a dr.pepper without feeling guilty.
Movement: yes yes yes! i first felt him on sunday, and would feel him only at night. then i didnt feel him for 4 days. but ive been feeling him at night again! still lightly, but hes in there!
Food cravings: bring on the marinara. pizza, pizza rolls, bagel bites, mozzarella sticks. & chocolate milk. thats the new one.
Anything making you queasy or sick: nada.  
Gender: he better still be a boy or we'll have a lot of outfits to return! (if we still have the receipts??!)  

Labor Signs: oh no no no
Symptoms: if my belly wasn't growing, i'd literally forget about being pregnant.
Belly Button in or out? innie! 
Wedding rings on or off? on until the evenings. apparently my fingers get fat at night now.

Happy or Moody most of the time: pretty happy, but i am very irritable & get annoyed easily.
Looking forward to: feeling him move more often! i cant wait for the movements to become stronger. supah anxious for the 20w ultrasound too, hitting the halfway mark has been a goal of ours! its also time to get a move on with our nursery! 

Your Baby:
  • Is about 5 1/2 to six inches long and weighs around 7 ounces.
  • Although your baby will weigh more than 15 times its current weight by the time it is born, the rapid-fire growth portion of pregnancy is over. Thus, I have nothing else interesting to say up here. Baby is fully assembled; just needs some fattening up and lengthening out.


  1. I'm totally craving pizza rolls now! Yum! :) I can't believe he is the size of a bell pepper, that is so big! That's so cool that you felt him move during the Oscars. That will be a good story to tell him when he's older! Maybe this means he will be an actor?? Oh and under Gender you wrote "he better still be a girl". Haha, did you mean not be a girl?

    1. HAHA. better NOT be a girl, youre right about that!!

  2. So exciting! Hopefully the next week goes by fast! I need this week to go by fast so we can get announcing!

    1. Haha! I know exactly your thought process! We ended up announcing at 11weeks on NYE because we had an ultrasound that afternoon & i just couldnt keep waiting! So exciting for you!
