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.
