Yesterday marked 19 weeks for our pregnancy! I cannot explain how excited I am for our gender reveal brunch next Sunday. Our appointment is next Friday and we are dropping off the SEALED gender revealed envelop to the baker directly after. I don't even know how I plan on controlling myself to not rip that thing open on the car ride there!!!

This pic reminds me, THANK GOD I have a hair appointment tomorrow to lighten up this gothic 'do!!!!
How far along: 19 Weeks. Baby is the size of a tomato, however I am trying not to associate anything red with this baby...as we all know I will most likely be having a ginger.
Gender: to be determined
Weight gain: 6 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Still rocking leggings and yoga pants. Because accenting the bump is the new black I'm able to get away with some fitted shirts too. I just have to be careful because the cleave is out of control.
Stretch marks: No and using the Mia oil like it's my job.
Belly button in or out: In.
Sleep: eh off and on. I can't remember the last time that I slept through the night. It's usually frequent bathroom interruptions or the hubs being a night owl.
Best moment this week: FLUTTERS! I swore that this was gas but it has been everyday for a straight week. I feel this gassy kinda flutter in my lower belly AND.ITS.AWESOME.
Worst moment this week: I still don't have a maternal connection yet. From what I've read this is pretty common but most women won't talk about it. I am far from the picture perfect prego and have no issue discussing this matter. Some days I feel just weird that there is a baby in there. It still doesn't feel real. Often times I forget that I am pregnant. I am not worried about this only because I've googled a ton of shit and they say that once you see that baby...BOOM goes the dynamite and your maternal.
Miss anything: Not really. Which is kind of nice. I mean yes the occasional drink but ladies, the amount of food that you can eat when you are not drinking is INSANE. I expect everyday to get on the scale and for those numbers to move up by 5 lbs, but nope, nada, same as the day before. I must have been drinking most of my calories prior to this pregnancy. And I'm not ashamed of that either ;)
Cravings: Philadelphia rolls. I mean if Josh wanted to get me a double order tonight, I wouldn't be mad.
Queasy or sick: Heartburn/acid reflux. It's happening mostly at night. Sleeping up right like a geriatric patient seems to be helping.
Looking forward to: Getting my hair did tomorrow and a relaxing weekend! I'm thinking Bass Pro Shop and some good eats!
