How far along: 19 weeks and 2 days!! Since I’m being induced early...tomorrow is actually my 1/2 way mark!
Total weight gain: I think I’ve gained a little more weight this week so my guess is 5-6ish lbs. I mean, whose to say.
Best moment of this week: We had a pregnancy scare last week. LUCKILY (!!!) it was just a combination of sitting on a spin bike and the blood thinners they have me on, but it scared me to death! I cried all the way to the Doctor’s office. I realized just how much I love our little baby already. I've felt connected to her ever since we found out she was a girl, but I’ve never felt so much love for something I haven’t met. I was so scared of losing her! It was the best moment of the week because I was/am so grateful she was okay, AND I got to see her on the ultrasound again (with her little bum sticking up in the air the whole time hahah).
Movement: NO!! I’m starting to get really impatient about it! Most people have felt their babies move by now. The doctor who did my ultrasound last week said the placenta is still cushioning her kicks, and she showed me on the ultrasound. I can't wait to feel her little body moving around in there.
Food cravings: Not really. I’ve been craving ketchup still...and eggs and avocado (as always), and orange juice. I craved little caesar’s pizza this week haha - that was a low point.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Really sweet stuff. I don’t really want it anymore because I know it will make me throw up (insert all the sad face emojis)
Have you started to show yet: YES!! Not a ton...but definitely a little more this week! There’s always a small bump now...even when I see if I can suck it in ha. That means my clothes are getting tight, but I don't fit into maternity clothes yet, so I basically just look like I'm gaining weight. It's an awkward stage all around really.
Looking forward to: Again, feeling her move!!! And also Christmas this week (and my birthday). If she moves on my birthday I’ll forgive her for taking so long!
