19 Week Survey

How far along? 19 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: +0.5 lbs. 14.5 lbs. total
Maternity clothes? yes and no
Sleep: Awesome...just wake up now and then to re-adjust. But lately I have been super tired but I know it's because I have not been forcing myself to go to bed early enough.
Best moment this week: Finding out that we are having a BOY! Telling people at work, and also getting some amazing gifts....people are so giving. Today I took in cupcakes and brownies and put a little pastel blue and green M&M on each one with a sign that said "It's a Boy!" It was awesome seeing everyone's reactions. :)
Movement: Yep! It is inconsistent and sporadic though.
Food cravings: Nothing in particular anymore. Things just do not sound good sometimes.
Gender: BOY! My intuition from last week was right I guess. :)
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? Innie still
Stretchmarks? Nothing noticeable yet. Thank goodness!
What I am looking forward to: Registering this weekend (hopefully)
What I miss: Not being sore from sitting all day.
Weekly Wisdom: Nothin really....
Milestones: Finding out the gender and I am also starting to get itchy on my stomach.

Decided to change things up and took the belly pic at the office today! Thanks Jess ;)

Also I was pretty happy I could still fit into my Banana capris with just wearing a bellaband. They are not comfy as maternity pants but are so cute... I am having issue letting some of my regular pants go yet...!

How your baby's growing:

Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.

Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
