How far along? 19 weeks!
Total weight gain/measurements: Now at 111 lbs! Woohoo!!
Maternity clothes: I am at that point where my old clothes just don't fit. I went to a lovely event at the National Cathedral with some gal pals this passed Monday and was faced with the task of dressing up without a single "maternity" dress or skirt. Its full on winter here in Washington DC, so it also had to be warm! After turning my closet upside down I found a black high waisted midi skirt that I had to pull up under my boobs in order to zip. I paired that with a cropped black sweater (with a faux leather peter pan collar) that couldn't be tucked in to my skirt so ended up tucking it under my bra and folding it over so skin didn't show. I guess it worked but it was a little uncomfortable. I am a petite person, especially up top so finding something that is not gigantic (that not basic long-sleeved shirts) is going to be hard.
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep: Good nights and bad… VERY bad nights. My legs have been crazy restless recently! NO bueno! Yesterday we found out the gender of our baby, I was so excited I didn't sleep a wink and I think baby was excited too because it was kicking all night long. I am also getting a cold so breathing was an issue. -_-
Best moment this week: Finding out that we are having a …….!!!! Can't tell until Thanksgiving! But OMG we are so happy and so madly in love with this child! We had a whole 45 minutes to look at our baby so the sonographer could measure all the baby's parts. Everything was perfect! <3
Miss anything? I was a little sore this week and the cold weather is a little bummy so I am missing a hot tub right about now! Oh how amazing would that be!!!! *dreaming*
Movement: Someone is doing karate in my tummy! Lots of kicks!
Food cravings: Back to watermelon and ice water of course!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)
Gender: ITS A …….! (Will let everyone know on Thanksgiving!)
Symptoms: My legs are so restless its not even funny! I can't stretch enough!
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and excited all week with the exception of one moody day where I just wanted to sleep and listen to Lana Del Rey!
Looking forward to: Telling our family the sex of our baby right before Thanksgiving dinner (some via phone, FaceTime or text) I am also sending a little reveal box to my grandmother and brother in Florida to open via FaceTime so we can see their reactions. I will post photos of our reveal next week!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I have so much to be thankful for! We were blessed in SO many ways this year!
Right after finding out the sex! SO HAPPY AND EXCITED!!
