    19 weeks

    How far along: 19w
    Weight: 132lbs. And this is after eating moderately alright. Ugh. I will be HAPPY to do a 1lb/week gain through the rest of pregnancy, but 2lb in one week (following another week of 1+lb gain) is not making me feel good. My OB has a 25-27lb limit for me for this pregnancy, and I just want to keep it under 35lb total. I was on track for this, but with these increased bumps I’m a little worried.
    Sleep: Good, now that I’m back in my own bed. Our home renovation evicted us to the guest room for a few days while mudding & painting was going on. The guest bed is great. S and I slept on it for years, but I’ve been spoiled by my sleep number, both in softness as well as size. A pregnant chick needs her space — just sayin’
    Gender: Boy. Hopefully this will be confirmed next week and S2 will offer up a money shot for us all
    Movement: Possibly feeling “something” as of a few days ago. At least now what I think is movement is in the appropriate area where the baby actually is.
    Feeling: Good. I’m in good spirits and nausea only comes around when I’ve stretched out eating a little too long.
    What I miss: My energy. I still poop-out by 8-9pm and am asleep well before 10.
    What I am looking forward to: Big U/S this week on Friday
    Weekly Wisdom: Being pregnant with a tantrumy toddler is not enjoyable. Patience is a lot lower than normal, and I have to stretch myself to keep calm.
    Milestones: “almost” half-way baked!!!
    Food cravings: Finally some meets. I wanted a burger yesterday. From “In & Out” of all places. Ugh. I ended up with a much healthier deli sandwich.
    Fetal development:
    Your baby’s sensory development is exploding! His brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that he may be able to hear your voice now, so don’t be shy about reading aloud, talking to His, 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. His arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of his body now. His kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on his scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on his skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.

      I love seeing your posts about prego-progress! As I’m not having children, kind of neat to see a step-by-step walk through from someone else 🙂
