Welcome! + Week 19 Update

I know what you're thinking.  "Another blog? Really?"

Yes, really.  Since my other blog is intended for the internet at large, I wanted to create a separate, more private,  space to document the latter half of my pregnancy and then hopefully, lots of photos of a cute baby for family members who live far away.  Maybe I can even get Nick to post sometime! (We'll see.)

So, in case you're really out of the loop, you should know that Baby Dillon is due on March 11, 2014 and we are really excited!  Nick wants a boy, I want a girl (or a boy, I'll be thrilled with either) and we find out the sex on October 25th.

That said, I plan to fill out this questionnaire up until the baby comes so that I have something to look back on in the future (or when my mom turns all this into a scrapbook... hint hint).


How far along? 19 weeks, 2 days

Total weight gain/loss:  Not sure, but I'll know when I go to the doctor next week

Sleep:  No problems!

Best moment this week:  I'm pretty sure I can feel the baby moving.  It feels like someone poking a sore muscle on the inside of my lower abdomen and it does not feel good.

Movement:  Even though it sort of hurts, I was excited to finally feel something.

Symptoms:  Round ligament pain, as my baby bump (hopefully) starts to appear.

Symptoms I DON'T have:  Most of them.  It's sort of scary, though.  I have too many people to compare myself to, and I worry that lack of symptoms and noticeable baby bump mean that something is wrong.

Food cravings:  Sugary cereal (this week it is Honey Smacks that I mix with Special K Protein so as not to overdo it) and clementines.

Food aversions:  Fish *shudder*, smelly vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower

Gender:  We'll find out next Friday!

Labor Signs:  Too early for that

Belly Button in or out?  Too early for that

What I miss:  Wine and sushi, my usual jeans

What I am looking forward to:  Actually looking pregnant, and not just a little bit fat

Weekly Wisdom:  It's not a good idea to go on about how un-pregnant a pregnant lady looks. Just leave it at "you look great!"
