19 Weeks

How Far Along? 19 weeks

Size of Baby:
Tomato (6 in, and we were told that she is already 0.9 oz, which is big for this stage, does that mean she might be early?)

:  Sweet baby girl

Maternity Clothes:
I have officially become obsessed with maternity leggings. Since I’m part of the “leggings are not pants” club, I only wear them at home or under a dress or tunic. Good grief they are the most comfortable things ever! I have them in black, but I think I’m going to grab them in a couple other colors soon.

I cleaned out the closet in the guest room, which was full of luggage and gift wrap, which is a start. I think we are going to move the current furniture out this weekend and start prepping for paint!

I feel her only sporadically and only when I’m lying down at night being really still. It feels like a bubble rises to the surface of my belly and then pops. I’m still wishing for the more defined movements.

We took a quick road trip this weekend and my lower back ached for the next two days. Is this a symptom of pregnancy or am I just old?

Still great and praying it continues. I’m getting a little worried though, because I always start on my left side, but always wake up on my right. The body pillow I keep talking about, but still haven’t purchased may help with that.

Nothing really. I’m still enjoying my kindergartener lunch of a peanut butter sandwich, a (reasonable) handful of Pringles, and some kind of fruit or yogurt every day.  Is it a fresh salad with a lemon dressing? No. But it’s all I really want and it keeps me from buying lunch every day.

What I Miss:
 Sushi! A couple girls in the office asked if I wanted to go to lunch with them and when I asked where they were going they said a sushi place. I know I could have gotten a stir fry, but it’s not the same. I also know that some doctors say it’s okay for pregnant women to eat sushi, but honestly it’s not worth the worry I’ll do afterward, so I’ll just hold off.

Best Moment This Week:
Andy and I had been looking at a couple cribs and furniture sets for the baby here in Columbia. We found out our favorite store had a discount warehouse in Charlotte, so after church we spontaneously decided to ride up and check the place out. We assumed there was no way they would have our top choice discounted, but we figured we could find something similar. There were only about two dozen random pieces of furniture in the warehouse, but low and behold if our dream crib wasn’t sitting in the corner at half price! We checked to make sure nothing was wrong with it, but they explained they just got a newer model for the show room and nothing was wrong with this one. It was packed in the car 30 minutes later and we were on our way home. It’s nice to know that even if we get nothing else, our baby will have someplace to sleep.

Looking Forward To:
We will be halfway through the pregnancy next week and hopefully the nursery will start to take shape.


  1. HOORAY for the crib! You look great. I had two friends that ate PB&J sandwiches everyday for lunch because that is what they wanted. I say whatever works!! I didn't really feel SS until about 23 weeks and then she became a ninja. Ha.

  2. Oooh I'd love to know your favorite furniture store/ outlet!! YAY for having a crib- you are adorable pregnant!! (Sorry for the multiple comments; I'm just so excited for ya and have lots to catch up on! hehe)
