19w update

How far along? 19 weeks!!!

Total weight gain
: lost 1; down 3 for pregnancy (yea, me, for getting through the holidays with a weight LOSS!)

Maternity clothes?
pants, absolutely.  Tops, I’m improvising.

Decent.  I’m having some restless leg syndrome that Dr. M says I can try to alleviate with calcium and magnesium supplements, so, we’ll see.

Best moment this week: talking about a C-section date!!! Ahhhhh!  It’s making it seem so real and not-all-that-far-away.

Movement: Yep, all the time.  And she LOVES peanut butter!

Gender: GIRL!
Labor Signs: Nope.

Belly Button in or out
? In-ish.  It’s out, in the actual button, but in, overall. It’s hard to describe, but I won’t subject you to a photo.

What I miss : my sweaters.  They aren’t really long enough to get over the bump, and even with a maternity tee underneath, I look silly.

What I am looking forward to: having Jim reconvert the crib.  Seth has successfully moved into his “big boy room,” so I’m ready to see my bumper in action.

Weekly Wisdom:
I can rearrange furniture in three rooms with no apparent harm to the baby, but I just may break a toe, so I probably should leave the rest of the renovations to Jim.

Milestones: Consistently GOOD blood pressure reading -- 127/80 today!!!!  And BG’s heartbeat was below 150 today for the first time: 142.  Which means nothing, but made me smile anyway.
