Bumpdate: Week 19
Size of the baby: A mango!
Total weight gain: Anywhere between 6 and 8 pounds
Maternity clothes: I'll be in them for a while. I can still wear a few non maternity items from my closet but I like the extra room in my maternity tops.
Gender: Baby Girl! We have a name but we aren't sharing it openly until the birth. Friends and family know though and everyone seems to love it.
Nursery: We can finally start! I've got big plans for Black Friday shopping. BIG. PLANS.
Sleep: This week was not a good one for sleeping. We were so busy cleaning and finishing projects to get ready for our reveal party and my mind raced at night. At some point I realized that I'm almost half way through with my pregnancy and I feel I'm so behind! We want to finish a registry before Christmas and we've spent our evenings doing a lot of baby item research.
What I miss: Sleep. The mimosas on reveal day were looking really good too.
Cravings. Orange juice, chocolate milk, Ritz crackers, and clementines but only at night.
Other symptoms: Leg Cramps! They hit me in the early morning. I'm also getting up a lot in the middle of the night. It's probably lack of sleep but I'm exhausted by 4 pm - the time change does not help.
Best moments so far: We finished painting an accent wall in our living room, our spare bathroom, and the dining room. The house was spotless for the party - a big deal since R was in charge of most of the cleaning from in first trimester. I did the cleaning this week while he finished the painting. Oh and of course finding out our baby's gender! To celebrate, I ordered the first of many monogrammed items for our daughter.
