Bumpdate: 19 Weeks

How Far Along: 19 Weeks

Size of Babe: an heirloom tomato

Gender: our sweet baby boy Gray will arrive in July

Symptoms: the winter blues are hitting me hard this week. it feels like years since our trip to mexico and it's only been two weeks. still rocking the lack of energy, stuffy nose and allergies. surprisingly, i actually don't have much of an appetite these days so I'm working hard to eat well for baby. otherwise, i'm feeling pretty good and getting pretty big.

Loving: green tea, diet dr. pepper, bagels with cream cheese, Target, popcorn, sleeping with a pillow between my knees

Loathing: chicken wings, figuring out the baby registry, snow, winter, ice, crappy internet connections

Husband: is out of town for work, dodging the pregnant wife bullet.

Wedding Rings: off for the long haul, rocking the hand me down jewels with pleasure

Belly Button: getting more shallow

Movement: yes! those little twinges from the last two weeks were definitely him! 
P.S. the feeling of the movement is kinda weird....

Maternity Clothes: same as the last few weeks...yes to to maternity tank tops and leggings/pants...yes to regular tops and jackets

Best Part of the Week: figuring out that the baby is moving around in there! also, mark sent our friend jaime over to try to cheer me out of my seasonal depression...I'm a lucky girl to have them both.

Worst Part of the Week: figuring out that I can't drink, take the good drugs, hit the tanning bed or even head outside for a long walk (it's too icy and I can't risk a fall) to beat the winter blues. I'm thinking of running away to Virginia for a while.

Missing Most: sunshine, grass and warm weather

Can't Wait For: spring.

Oh baby, that bump is getting big!

  1. You look so beautiful! Rocking that bump completely. Sorry about the winter blues though =/

  2. Love that top! So glad you are starting to feel baby Gray in there, that must be the best!

  3. Gosh I imagine movement will be a very surreal feeling. I think you need to come visit me in California - the worst we get is rain and I am fairly certain you can handle that! Next week and you're halfway done cooking the babe!

  4. bump it up, lady! looking great and I'm with you on loving Diet Dr. Pepper (even though I am NOT preggo) - hand me down jewels? those are the best kind!
