Welcome to my blog!

19 weeks


One of my favorite things about blogging thus far has been the all documentation I've done about my family and our life over the last 6 months! The marrying of thoughts and photos with a time stamp on each post has allowed us to go back and reminisce about our good (and rough) times whenever we'd like.  It's like a public, online journal that you guys get to follow too. Yikes? ;) 

I took very few pictures (maybe 2) during my first pregnancy and painfully slogged through my second hoping to remember very little of it. This time around I've decided to document and share a little more about my experience. 

I found this pregnancy questionnaire on BabyCenter.com but every google search pulled up these same questions on EVERY pregnant girl's blog. Apparently, this is a popular quiz! Hehe. 

How far along: 19 weeks

How much weight gain/loss: 2 lbs. gained 

Maternity clothes: I live in my black maternity leggings. 

Sleep: Distrupted by a nursing toddler and frequent trips to the bathroom, but otherwise normal.

Best Moment this week: Too many to name. 

Miss anything: SUSHI and wine (which is funny because I MAYBE drink a couple of times a year, but when I'm pregnant I dream about red wine. It's ridiculous.) 

Movement: Soft, sweet and infrequent! This baby is my least fierce kicker. 

Food cravings: Salty and sour (and all Mexican food) during the first trimester, but nothing since. 

Anything make you queasy or sick: Smells! Refrigerators gross me out so badly. Also, pantries... Any place food is kept smells awful. 

Have you started to show yet: Depends on the day, but since I have my appetite back I'll be looking super pregnant in no time. P.S. I have a verrrryyyy long torso and surprisingly conditioned abs from 15+ years of being a dancer so I don't "show" as much or as quickly as others. Baby is perfectly fine and growing. ;) 

Gender: Girl? 

Labor signs: Braxton Hicks start earlier and earlier with every pregnancy. LOL. 

Belly button in or out: In. 

Wedding rings on or off: Always on. I've never had to take my rings off because I don't swell. 

Happy or Moody: Happy

Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound on the 18th and my little brother's wedding. 

Happy almost weekend, babes! This really is the most exciting time of the year.
