Bumpdate: 19 Weeks!

How Far Along: 19 weeks and 3 days (10/11/2012)  ALMOST HALFWAY!!!! 
PS. I feel ginormous today....
 Now let's do a little comparison for shits and giggles....
I'd say there's been a little growth :)

Size of Baby M:  A mango!!! Or 6.0 inches, 8.5 oz's!! He's getting big!!
Weight: I made up for the loss last week, and gained 1.6 pounds this week.  So we're up to a grand total of 6.7 pounds.  I feel like baby boy has been growing a lot lately i see this making a big ol jump soon!

Exercise: Keeping up with the running....i heart it all of a sudden.  Don't worry it won't last :)  Counting last Thursday and this mornings workout, we've made it 11 times.  (took Saturday off for game day!!)  People are starting to look at me's just going to get worse I'm sure!

Symptoms: This week has been good.  No ligament pain really.  No leg cramps.  I did have ridiculous side cramps the other day....not sure if that's related.  It was on my left side and lasted for like 2 was annoying as hell.  Later that night, we were using the Doppler, and couldn't find baby boy where he usually is (on the right, he's ALWAYS been to the right).  After some searching, he was all nuzzled (is that a word?) up on the left side.  So maybe that's why i had side aches...or it's just a weird coincidence...who knows.  Either way, he moved sides, and that's weird to me.  I'm really tired again....but that could just be the weather change.  Winter makes me sleepy....those bears are on to something with the whole hibernation thing!  There has been a TON of movement this week, a ton!!! It's the coolest thing....  Trav's got a few really good kicks the last couple of nights.  He just giggles like a little kid and gets the biggest shit eating grin on his face!! (sidenote;  that's a really gross saying, i should probably not use it!)  Last night, baby boy was being extra active, Trav was so stinking cute about actually made me cry to see him light up like that.  I can only imagine how I'll feel seeing him hold his son for the first time....swoooooon.  Oh and one last symptom.  The girls.  Growth spurt.  Again.  Ugh. 

Cravings: Nothing in particular really.  I just love candy.  That's not new.  The cold weather makes me want a nice hot latte more often then i need..... i have a schedule for those.  Mon. Wed. and Fri. mornings...1/2 caff.  Momma needs her fix :)  If we had a Starbucks, I'd be in big trouble!
Sleep: Everything has been peachy this week in the sleep department.  It's cold in our house, so that makes for great sleep, and cuddling :)  Still LOVING the Boppy pillow.  Trav steals it when i get up to go to the bathroom....he thinks he's funny.  For the record...he is not.

Stretch Marks: No new ones...i don't think.  I swear the one's on my hips from growing, are getting worse, but i think that's because I'm a pale ghost right now.  A tan would be lovely. 

Gender: As far as we know....he's still a boy.  If that's changed, we have a problem.

Movement: Previously discussed in symptoms....but yes, LOTS of movement. 

Maternity Attire: Alright.  So i went on the work pants hunt.  And i failed.  We ran into target this past weekend while in Manhattan, and it's official.  I'm not made to wear maternity pants.  They were just big.  The smalls fit in the butt and legs, but baggy in the crouch area.  Not a good look.  I'm hoping the one's I ordered from Gap will work better....if not, then i suppose I'll just stick to tights.  Oh, and a friend suggested a store in Hays...bella luna i think.  We'll be in Wakeeny this weekend for Gram's birthday, so i think we'll swing thru there on the way home and check it out.  Hopefully we find something!!

Looking Forward To: Anatomy scan and glucose test in two weeks (well I'm not really looking forward to the test, but you know what i mean!)  Working more on the nursery....  We put the crib together this week.  (Sidenote:  Pottery Barn makes that shit easy.  There were literally only 8 screws.  And it took trav and I all of 15 minutes to get it together!!)

We also received lots of packages in the mail this week!!  Lots of baby clothes....

And a real perty diaper bag :)

Trav also got a few fun things in the mail this week.... he ordered himself a diaper bag...

(he couldn't find a KSU one...sad day!)
Baby Boy also got a few Green Bay onesies, and a sleeper.  If this poor kid doesn't grow up loving all things KSU and Green Bay, i fear travis will be devastated :)  Speaking of KSU boy got a pretty sweet new jersey this weekend....

I just die.... it's too cute :)  Grandma McGuire also spoiled the little guy with a KState sleeper... he's not spoiled at all is he!!!

I've started to research all the other "equipment" we'll be needing.  Holy Hannah there's a lot!!! I think i have the carseat picked...but strollers are my struggle.  I want a BOB jogging stroller. But then i don't want to get another big one.  So i'd get the car seat adapter... and then maybe just one of those car seat carrier strollers for quick trips.  Ugh i don't know.  So many dang decisions.  Good thing i have a little bit of time :)
Well other then trying to refrain from spending more money on this kid...we have a pretty low key week ahead of us.  We'll be in Wakeeny Saturday, but other then that...HOME.  It'll be glorious.  Lots of laying on the couch, football on the tube, maybe some running, maybe some cleaning, and def. lots of snacking.
