19 & 20 weeks

I think I’ve decided to only do bi-weekly pregnancy posts, otherwise the blog would be run over by them and I’m not sure that everyone is interested enough to read every week anyway! I also wasn’t going to fill out the same survey that everyone and their dog (puppies, anyone?) does, but it actually seems like a better way to organize my thoughts and make it easier to read. Ta-da!

How big is baby? About 10 inches long from head to toe!
Maternity clothes? Still not needing any at all! But I am pretty excited because I ordered three maternity tops that were on sale, plus I had a coupon, plus free shipping! What a deal! They haven’t arrived yet, but that’s okay because I’m really in no rush for them.
Sleep: Depends on the night. If I try to be responsible and go to bed earlier, I sleep worse than if I had just stayed awake until I couldn’t anymore and crashed. My right hip is also starting to hurt a little just from sleeping on my side.
Best moment this week: Munchkin kicking hard enough that I could feel it on the OUTSIDE of my belly when my hand was there! He/she is getting so STRONG! Hopefully Michael will be able to feel it soon too!
Movement: TONS! Baby moves for probably half of the day now. I love it!
Food cravings: Poptarts, Starbursts, chocolate ice cream, pizza… why can’t I crave healthy things?
Miss Anything? Having energy!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Cooking chicken isn’t my favorite thing anymore.
Gender: We find out on FRIDAY! Chinese gender chart says girl, baking soda test says boy! The majority of people we know are guessing boy. Guess we’ll see who’s right!
Belly Button in or out? In!
Exercising? Still running, and hit a personal record high for total miles last week- 22.88!
Mood: Happy! But the tears can come on quickly these days… like when watching a commercial with babies in it, or even “Say Yes to the Dress”. Yep. That really happens.
Looking forward to: Big ultrasound on Friday!
