18 Weeks + 19 Weeks.... Because Life Gets Busy Sometimes

Ryan and I had an amazing weekend this past weekend. We found out the gender of our little nugget, attended an at-home Ernie Halter concert (so good!), and celebrated the gender of our child with our friends up North! Unfortunately, all of that fun comes at a price. I am SO SO far behind on school work and am starting to feel the effect this Monday afternoon. Boo. SIX. MORE. WEEKS.

We've been good about taking the weekly bump picture every Monday before I leave for work... but I never seemed to find a good time to blog last week while trying to balance all of the exciting things and not so exciting school work taking place. Instead of playing catch up and trying to remember how I was feeling specifically last week, I'm just going to post the picture from 18 weeks and call it a day. Half way point, here we come!

How far along? 19 weeks! 

Total weight gain: 13 lbs.  

Gender: GIRL!!!   

Baby is the size of a(n)...: Mango

Maternity clothes? Still yes. We finally went to Old Navy and purchased three pairs of maternity pants, which are just another level comfortable these days. Now I can finally put the boots and leggings away and move on to warmer weather clothes...even if the weather isn't actually any warmer. Wishful thinking, maybe?

Best moment this week: Where do I begin? Seeing our baby through our 18-week ultrasound last Thursday, finding out the gender, sharing the news with our family and later our friends.... all were pretty awesome.

Worst Moment this week: Still not being able to really take my prenatal vitamins without getting sick. I'm TIRED of getting sick. Any suggestions here to make this a little easier?

 Miss Anything? Beer. All the beer.
Cravings: Watermelon, California Rolls, Ice Cream, and Rice 

Symptoms: Leg cramps. Back pain. Random dizziness. Stuffiness.

Looking forward to: Lauren's bridal shower in Portland this weekend and spending next week with my mom!! Weezy flies up Saturday early afternoon and stays until the next weekend!!!

And just because I still can't get over how perfect everything was this weekend, here are a couple of pictures from our gender reveal party!! The theme Ryan and I went with was "Twinkle Twinkle little star.... how we wonder what you are!" Rachel M. made the cake and it was PHENOMENAL. Like... I wouldn't have changed a thing!

  1. About the vitamins, are you trying to swallow them whole? I used to chop & smash them into powder, then mix it with a little bit of applesauce. The chopping was kind of annoying, but on Sunday I'd chop them for the week, 1 vitamin per mini gladware container. Then I could just add the applesauce to the little container each day and be done. Good luck! Hope you're feeling better soon! :-)
