Bumpdate | Week 19

I've been a little mia in blogland this week, for no other reason then I'm just behind with life, you know how that goes sometimes.  But I'm stopping by today for my weekly bumpdate because I'm set on keeping track of this journey as it goes!

Week|  19

Total Weight Gain| More than I can wrap my head around, we'll find out at my appointment on Monday.

Gender| So close to finding out, just have to make it through the weekend, can't wait!  (Obviously way more excited about this part of my appointment then the lovely weigh in!)

Symptoms| I had tons of growing and stretching pains this weekend, from what it sounds like it seems to be round ligament pain, and it was pretty much constant all weekend, but I also feel like I notice it more when I'm not working and moving around as much.  Also my feet are killing me way faster at work then they used to, I find myself changing dance shoes several times a day.

Cravings|  I don't feel as strong of cravings as I did, though don't get me wrong I still won't turn down cheese or my spicy california rolls, but lately I'm feeling pretty indifferent towards food.  I'm hungry, very hungry, but I just don't know what I want to eat, nothing is sounding all that interesting.  Especially full meals, but small snack type things seem to be right up my alley.

Sleep|  For the most part I'm still sleeping pretty good.  Hardly ever getting up for bathroom breaks during the night, every once in a while I'll have a night where I seem to wake up every time I toss and turn, but thankfully they haven't been the majority of my nights.

Clothes|  Definitely have still been procrastinating on this front, and this new batch of snow we've received has not helped.  I'm just ready for spring clothes!  Every weekend I say I'm going to get out and hunt for some new stuff, and it never seems to happen.  I feel like I'm at the point where if I wear more drapey shirts I just look like I've gained 15 pounds, if I wear more fitted clothes then I look pregnant.

Workouts| I did a little better this week, 4 workouts in total.  1 walk outside, 1 video workout, and 2 trips to the gym.  Plus a full day of dancing and teaching lessons on Saturday. which I think was actually too much for me - I think I over did it with a solid day of teaching, I was so spent after that!

Nursery|  I've been scoping out pieces I like and I'm excited to start to get things ordered and pieced together once we have our ultrasound and I know what direction I'll be heading in for the nursery.  Don't worry, I'm sure a design board will be hitting the blog in the near future.

Movement|  I'm pretty sure I've felt some small flutters, but still nothing definitive yet where I could say yes that was for sure the baby.

Best Moment this Week|  Having my parents visit this past weekend and going out looking for nursery furniture with Martin and my mom, it's exciting to actually start to get ready for our baby's arrival!


  1. You look so beautiful in this week's photo! I think you're lucky that you're still sleeping so soundly - maybe that's a positive premonition for when the baby arrives. :) Bet you're so excited for the gender reveal!

  2. You look so incredibly happy...and beautiful! I'm so glad you get to find out the gender next week...I was having anxiety FOR YOU when I thought you still had to wait another month! Haha! I've had those ligament stretching pains the past few nights (only in the evenings for some reason)'s so uncomfortable...but TOTALLY WORTH IT!

  3. Congratulations! You look amazing!

  4. Oh my gosh you just look glowing! I am so excited for you to find out the gender of the baby! So close! I think pink!

  5. Thanks girl! I'm so excited for this afternoon, I can't wait! I can only hope that the sleeping continues!

  6. Oh it's totally worth it, it always just initially freaks me out, like is this normal is this supposed to be happening or is something wrong?! I can not wait for my appointment this afternoon, I would die if I had to wait another month!

  7. You're the first person to give a prediction, I love it! Just have to wait till this afternoon to find out, so excited!

  8. Thanks girl, you're so sweet!

  9. I was just about to say that you are seriously glowing!!!! So beautiful! Such an exciting time in your life!!!
