Baby Gill # 2 - 19 Weeks

How far along?
19 weeks (+ 4 days)

Maternity clothes?
Still somehow managing to wear my normal jeans (with the hair tie trick) but they're getting more and more uncomfortable. I need to bite the bullet and buy some new maternity jeans, but it's probably just about the last thing I want to spend money on right now, so I'm being stubborn and waiting until it's absolutely necessary!

We just got a new-to-us mattress handed down from my in-laws. It's a queen (we had a double before) and a pillow top. I slept like a dream last night!

Best moment this week:
Getting away for a mini staycation with my handsome husband. An entire day/night of HGTV watching, Starbucks coffee drinking, TGI Fridays eating, "gambling" at the casino (and coming out $30 richer), and soaking up some quality time and R&R together. It was just what I needed!

Miss Anything?
We're going camping this weekend, so I'm going to call it in advance and say that I miss limearitas.

The ninja kicks are coming back! Feeling Marleigh move in my belly was my favorite part of pregnancy last time, and I think the same will go for Huck. I love feeling him wiggle and kick in there! The movements are starting to get a lot more noticeable, and I don't think it will be too much longer until you can feel them from the outside!

Food cravings:
I could really go for an Oreo McFlurry (with caramel sauce) right now.

Anything making you queasy or sick:
Nothing in particular. Still taking my medicine pretty much daily. Every once in a while I work up the nerve to skip it for a day, but most mornings I still wake up feeling pretty pukey. Ready for that part to end (will it ever?!).


Labor Signs:

I need to pay a visit to Victoria's Secret (or Walmart, if I'm being honest) for a new bra soon. My growing chest size is just about the only "symptom" that I have lately, and it's out. of. control.

Belly Button in or out?

Wedding rings on or off?

Happy or Moody most of the time:

Looking forward to:
Seeing our little guy on the ultrasound screen bright and early in the morning! And then going to the bank to talk pre-qualification for mortgages after that. Wednesday night, we're going to an open house for a house that we found online that seems like it just might be perfect for us. We'll see if we're right about it, or if the timing is even right to act on it...! Trying not to get my hopes up too much!
