Bumpdate: Week 19

 How Far Along? 19w, 5d - due October 15, 2015

Gender: BOY!

Weight Gain: 8lbs

Maternity Clothes: Jeans but that's it.

Nursery: June will bring some changes.

I think I'm feeling him (!!!) a lot. I try to feel him from the outside, but that is still pretty tricky. I only feel him when I'm sitting down or laying down but it's a pretty wild feeling. It still feels like muscle twitches but sometimes it takes my breath away.

Symptoms: Feeling full does not feel comfortable at all. My skin is still really bad. I have had a zit/mark in the middle of my forehead for three weeks now, and I feel like my skin is much greasier than normal. My stomach is still not fully "popped" but in the morning and at night when I lay flat, my stomach sticks far out.

Sleep: I'm still sleeping pretty solidly, but I definitely need to sleep with a pillow between my legs.
Joel: He and I have been having a lot of fun calling the baby by his name. While we were shopping over the weekend, my cousin and I popped into a store and Joel was just waiting outside for us to do our thing. When he realized that it was a baby store, he came in and found us and was like, "well I would have come in if I knew we were shopping for the baby". It was really cute and we bought a little KickKee Pants blanket with a really cute print of a dog playing fetch which was exciting.

Workouts: 1 gym, 1 spin class, 1 pool session and 2 hikes with my cousin. It was an active week - but also a food filled one - so it kind of balanced out.

Mood: Joyous most of the time but I do quickly irritate.....

Cravings: Same....I do find myself craving a smoothie if I go a few days without one, but otherwise, not much

What I Miss: Not much.....I did take a pass on oysters this weekend but it wasn't that big of a deal.

Random Things: Baby got his first gift from his Coco (I'm trying to convince my mom, Connie, to go by Coco....isn't it super cute?) and I pretty much just died with the IL onesie. 

Best Moment This Week: Honestly, just knowing the baby is a healthy baby boy. We were given a DVD of our ultrasound from last week, so Joel and I watched it once together, and then my cousin indulged me watched it again with me, so she got a chance to see her nephew and all of his gymnastic moves. It's been a very, very sweet few weeks.

 Looking Forward To: Next week we have a normal check up appointment


  1. Ohhhh I love that you're feeling him!!! And getting to shop for the sweetest clothes!

  2. She has to go by Coco! I love nontraditional names for grandparents. :)

  3. I'm with Heather, nontraditional names are the cutest. J's parents are Grandma and Grandpa to their grandkids, but I know my mom has a non-trad one in mind for whenever that day comes.

    Also -- you know I'm a Mario Badescu whore. The Cucumber Cleansing Lotion is GREAT for extra grease.

  4. You look too cute! Love that top! My mom's name is Shannon and tells all the kids to call her Shanny so I think Coco would be great! Love those peepee teepees!! I can see us using a lot of those in the future!
    Ally - Life as I know it

  5. Aw I adore the name Coco!! Definitely just start calling her that regardless. lol

    And I love the IL onesie - so adorable!

  6. You look adorable! That bump is coming, I think I popped around 22-24 weeks with my first. I totally thought my mom would go by a non-grandma name but she wanted to be grammie so badly so that's her name for now :)

  7. You look soo cute! I am 23 weeks today and totally wish I could get away with only wearing maternity jeans..... lucky duck!

  8. That sock monkey onesie is the CUTEST!
