Half Way!

Today we had our mid-point appointment and ultrasound. It was delightful. The baby looks perfect. Both she and mom are measuring great. Everything with her is as it should be and yes, she is still of the female variety. Once again, she wasn't cooperating when it came to giving us the views we needed but eventually after me rolling over, walking, and bouncing she gave us a shot of what we needed to see.

Here is her sweet little 19 week profile:


Behold, the belly shots:

4 weeks

9 weeks

18 weeks

Don't mind my appearance in these photos, they were taken after workouts, yuck.

My stats as of 19 weeks:
  • number of fetal movements felt: 1
  • most times I have been up to pee in one night: 7
  • number of pregnancy related barfs: 0 (I know, lucky me)
  • emotional outbursts: who freaking knows- ok Josh might be keeping track, we'll have to ask him
  • breakdowns over not having anything to wear in my 'I just look fat' stage: 1 real one, several semi controlled breakdowns since
  • up 1.5 cup sizes already, watch out! Josh is in Heaven.
  • total weight gain: 5 lbs
  • most naps taken in one day: 4
  • pregnancy related cravings: 0
I really have had a pretty easy pregnancy so far and I feel really lucky. In my first trimester I was more tired than I knew possible. I would fall asleep the second I sat down at work, home, church, wherever. I had some nausea from weeks 6-8 in the afternoons, but by week 9 it was gone! I never threw up which was lovely. Real fruit popsicles helped my nausea, along with crackers and peanut butter and Izze Pops. I didn't realize how much you pee right off the bat being pregnant. It's amazing, and so annoying! This trimester I am feeling great. I have my energy back and am going to the bathroom less frequently at night. I have enjoyed eating healthy and I workout when I can. I try to do yoga at least once a week, light weights and cardio. I am so excited for this baby to come, I can hardly wait! We are having fun picking out all our baby gadgets. We have chosen a stroller, have a crib and are working on a nursery theme, and a name for the baby. If you ask my sister and Josh, she is already named. I'm not so sure though.

We both feel so blessed to be responsible with this little life inside me. We can't wait to meet our baby girl and to have her in our arms. We're half way there!

Hitting the "half way" point is so awesome! Then it's more of, "I'm already # weeks, with only # left to go!" instead of, "I'm only # weeks..." That was the long part for me... until now. And now I'm thinking these last 8 weeks are CRAWLING by! You look adorable and so fit! :)

Jill said...

I love that you are doing this, keeping a little log of everything. I did that with my 3 boys in a little book and I loved going back and looking at it every pregnancy to compare my stats. You are so cute pregnant and what a sweet profile picture. :)
