Week 19 Pregnancy Journal

How far along? 19 weeks

Size of Baby: Heirloom Tomato - 6" long and 8.5 ounces

Gender: We're excited to not be finding out! 

Weight Gain:  None.  Still.  Doc says she's not concerned when I saw her last Friday.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet!

Nursery:  We got a lot done on the nursery last weekend when Mom was here.  I just think it's special that she can be a part of the planning and decorating.  We got some pretty gray fabric for the glider and the guy is lined up for the week of March 30 to recover it.  He couldn't fit it in until then.  We got the PBK Kendall Crib!  Should be delivered in the next week or so.  Got the Harper Collection navy crib skirt and bumper when they were doing their big 20% sale last weekend plus another 20% off one item (I got them two separate days).

And I couldn't resist this Serena and Lily crab crib sheet!

Movement: Not yet.

Symptoms:  I can't go go go like I used to.  Well, I can but I crash hard later.  This rib pain is killing me.  Mom has high ribs too and it helped to talk to her and the doc about this.  The doc isn't concerned but it hurts so much.  Every day while sitting.  Thankfully the headaches were better this week and I didn't have to take my medicine once.  Just a lil caffeine helped.  I'm honestly fine but the rib thing is pretty much not fun. 

Sleep: Good...been up once a night.

Cravings:  Cold fruit is good but I like cold fruit.  It's not like a 2am I must have this right now thing.  I just pick that out for meals.

What I Miss: Nothing!  

Best Moment This Week:  Finding out that all is well at the 18 week anatomy scan.  It was very cool that they ruled out so many things that could go wrong with the baby.  Less things to worry about!  They also took my blood for a spina bifida test which they expect to come back fine judging by seeing the spine in the ultra sound.  We didn't peak to see boy/girl!  Cannot believe I've held strong but I'm so glad we have.  

Looking Forward To:  We have a little getaway coming up that I'm very excited about.  Not a babymoon...(PS I really don't like this term for some odd reason).  This is for Kevin's birthday!


  1. I love everything you Have picked for the nursery! That crab crib sheet is perfect!!! Can't wait to see the final result!

  2. So happy to hear baby is healthy. It's amazing what a relief that can be. Sorry to hear about the rib pain, ouch! Love the crab sheets, my Marylander husband will make sure our little one has lots of crab-themed items too. ;)

  3. Can't wait to see the finished product! Those crab sheets are so adorable.

  4. Not a fan of the term babymoon too. I many freaking things can we celebrate and spend money on????

  5. Yay for a healthy and wonderful anatomy scan, girlie!!!! xx

  6. So cute! Glad you are feeling well. The crab sheet is extra cute since you are from Maryland.

  7. Love that we are so close in weeks, so reading your updates is so real life. The crab sheet is adorable and love your nursery picks!

  8. I love the Harper bedding - such an easy set to accentuate after baby comes!!! PS hold surprise of your life!!!! Promise!!!!

  9. Yay for healthy baby and I looooove that sheet!!!

  10. Oh goodness. Once Blogger shut down, started reading blogs in binges and hadn't caught up with yours in several weeks. I opened it to see the 19 week update and was totally shocked! (Glad to hear I wasn't quite as far behind as I thought!) Congratulations! This is such an exciting time. We didn't find out the gender for either of our boys and it was so special...although everyone else about drove me crazy trying to convince me to do otherwise. Charlotte has so many wonderful baby boutiques, you'll have so much fun shopping for your little bit. :)
