19 Weeks

Whoa, whoa, whoa… is the gravity of 19 WEEKS soaking in to anybody else reading this? That seems so far along. In fact, in Graham’s pregnancy, that would’ve been the halfway point. Aye-aye-aye. This one is going so quickly…

But down to business.

How Far Along: 19 Weeks

Baby’s the size of: A mango
Total Weight Gain: Sticking at 13 pounds
Best Moment this week: Getting to drive around a white 2012 Cadillac SRX for 24 hours while, essentially, my oil got changed. 😉
Maternity Clothes: Yep.
Gender: Final word July 24.
Movement: Lots of jiggles and kicks.
Sleep: Like the d-e-a-d. I am dragging major butt during the day. We need to slow down.
Cravings: I really want a vacation, does that count?
Symptoms: Big uptick in symptoms this week, but – as I remember from 2nd and 3rd trimesters with Graham, it’s limited to a day. Late last week, I was uncomfortable with some round ligament pain (runs up and down both sides of the abdomen). Then I was exhausted. Then I was nauseous. Then my ab muscles felt all hurty and stretched. And then BOOM… belly increase. Like clockwork.
What I miss: God I’d love to have a glass of wine at the end of these stressful, exhausting days. Sometimes my mind can’t really deal with all the changes coming our way.
What I’m looking forward to:  Hands down – going to Minneapolis for my cousin Courtney’s wedding. We leave tomorrow.  A few days in downtown Minneapolis, seeing some sites, visiting restaurants, then family-family-family. It’s-a gonna be great. I need some time away and a pick-me-up.

Noticeable increase in waistline [to me]. I’m curious if you think so too.


  1. Yep, baby is growing! Can’t wait to see you all!

  2. You look so cute!

    Whoa! I feel like you popped since I saw you on Saturday! You are looking great….I am with you: cannot believe you are at the half way points! That means only 21 weeks until Christmas :)
