How Far Along: 19 weeks
Baby’s Size: Mango (6.5 inches, 10 oz)
Symptoms: Back pain. Not all the time thank goodness. But I do need to remember that my weight has shifted and I am carrying extra weight where I wasn’t before. We went vegetable picking this past weekend at a local harvest festival and I am still very sore!
Weight Gain: I am currently down 1.5 pounds from when I got pregnant (+2 from last week).
Cravings: Sweets. Some may say no big deal, but I am not a sweets person. It is very strange to those around me, but oh so yummy.
Food Aversions: Nothing new.
Belly Button – In or Out? Still in but just barely.
Movement: No big changes from last week but still loving the little kicks I feel each day.
Sleep: Still having a hard time getting comfortable.
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: She talks about the baby more and more every day. We traveled to a friend’s birthday party on Saturday and rode with my friend Courtney and her two kids. Her son is 4 months old and Monkey was so excited to get to sit next to him in the van. When he would cry she put her hand over the side of his car seat (she couldn’t quite reach him) and said over and over in a soft voice “you’re ok.” She is going to be a great big sister!
