19 Weeks

How Far Along: 19
Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: size of an heirloom tomato
Weight Gain: 9lbs so far
Gender: BABY GIRL!!!!!
Movement: So inconsistent and it's really worrisome. Just as soon as I get really worried, she wiggles around, but I've gone a couple days without feeling her. No sharp kicks yet, just big flutters. 

SleepFinally gave in and started using my snoogle again. It's definitely helped, but I'm so hot at night, it's not my favorite!
What I miss: Really missing my freedom of movement/exercise. It's been really hot here and I'm getting worn out super easily. I also would like to stop worrying that I'm doing too much on my feet. 
Cravings: turkey club sandwiches. I've had 3 in the past two weeks!
Symptoms: As I mentioned above, I'm getting worn out very easily. Also, my feet and hands are falling asleep easily. I just realized it's happening often and need to make sure it's nothing I should worry about. 
Best moment of the weekFeeling baby move after a couple days of no movement. I was eating dinner and felt her fluttering around. I wasn't in a situation where I could mention it, but I was silently celebrating that baby was still with me! I was really starting to worry. 
Worst moment of the week: I had a small melt down. As I approach the week we lost Bremy, I am getting so anxious. I actually let myself visualize what it would be like to lose this baby and it was absolute hell and I can't believe I let my mind go there. I never want to think about that again, because honestly I don't know how I'd move on if we suffered another loss. I'm done with the negative thoughts and only thinking positive from here on out!
I have an appointment on Thursday and I am so anxious!! Thinking positive. 


  1. Your belly looks soooo cute!!!!

  2. So sorry you're feeling anxious, Amy! I can't blame you though, mentally preparing yourself for the worst case scenario is an important defense mechanism. Hoping you feel a little more at ease as things progress. I have an appointment this week too - yay for reassurance! What's your official due date? We're so close! I'm October 26.

  3. You look amazing!! Such a perfect little belly!! When I was pregnant with Cadence she would NEVER move. I would go days without feeling her. Even when I was huge!! I remember getting up at night to pee and just shaking my belly. And pushing as hard as I could on her. And as of she was super annoyed, she would give me a little nudge and I would fall back asleep. Dang kid! I was always so scared something had happened! I can't even imagine what you are feeling. But I'm loving your attitude about only positive thought from here on out!! Enjoy every minute of that perfect little girl being knit together inside of you!!:)
