{Baby Schartz: 19 Weeks}

How far along?: 19 weeks

Total weight gain?: At this point I don't know! I'm going to say like 4-5 lbs. I'll have a better idea after the next appointment. All I know is I feel huge and I'm not even huge yet.
Size of baby?: Baby is the size of a mango! Yum!
Maternity clothes?: Not just yet! Luckily dresses and skirts are great for the summer.
Stretch marks?: Nooooo! Please stay away!!
Sleep: Sleep is so hit or miss. I never know what will happen from night to night. I'm sleeping ok, definitely not like I used to.
Best moment this week: Going down town with good friends and devouring chocolate dipped cones, chocolate covered cheesecake and all sorts of deep-fried goodness! We had a wonderful time.
Miss Anything?: SUSHI!!!!
Movement?: Movement?! This baby never stops moving. Good Lorrrd, I love it! I could swear you can almost see it too. I know I can see it, but I don't know if it's quite enough for anyone else to see yet. 
Food cravings: Not so far. Maybe I should be thankful I don't have them yet?
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope, I'm over the prenatal gummy gags. lol
Gender: Baby BOY!!
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: The round-ligament pain is gone. It was gone in a few days. However the back and hip pain seem like they're quite content sticking around. Grrr. I've also had the pleasure of enjoying leg cramps, as of late. It really is lovely. Sarcasm, people, sarcasm! 
Belly button in or out?: In :)
Wedding rings on or off?: On :)
Happy or moody most of the time?: I might honestly be a little moody. I'm completely happy, don't get me wrong, but there's so much to do and it's soooo HOT. I need a vacation. A staycation? Anyone?
Looking forward to: Is it too soon to say my baby shower? I've been working on it like crazy, so I'm pretty excited!

At this stage in the pregnancy I'm starting to actually feel pregnant.  Size-wise, pain-wise and emotionally. There's a lot going on right now. Between work, planning the shower, working on the nursery and keeping the house clean, there's a lot to keep up with. It's all so great though. These are the times I want to remember. All the love and labor that went into preparing for this sweet baby. I'm halfway through my pregnancy-HALFWAY!! It's flying by. Slow down a little would ya, universe?
