19 weeks...

This picture makes me look like I have a real bump... in normal clothes I just look fat still...
How Far Along? 19 weeks... almost half way???!!!  
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 10 pounds... pounds creeping into the numbers I have never seen before.. guess that is good
Baby Related Purchases: We purchased some fun things to tell our parents the gender... if you don't already know you can probably tell from these!

Stretch marks: Nope
Sleep: Still sleeping like a rock right now.  I cannot seem to get enough sleep right now... but don't have enough time to sleep as much as I would like.
Movement: Movement a lot... mostly in the evening.
What I miss: Some of my clothing that I am just starting not to fit into...
Cravings: Chewy fruity candy like starbursts, skittles and sour worms... please do not let me have anymore of these!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not sick anymore!
Gender: GIRL... stay tuned for a post about this.. so many thoughts!!!
Labor Signs: Hopefully a long time away...
Symptoms: Feeling pretty good these days...
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy :)
Worries: Felt a lot of comfort this week in getting to the anatomy scan and everything looking good.  This baby girl is big, already measuring 2 weeks ahead!  I need to focus on trusting God moment to moment and not the ultrasounds.
Best moments this week: 
This might have been the busiest week or two ever... so many good moments.
*Finding out our baby is healthy.
*Finding out we are having a girl.
*Moving into a new BIGGER apartment! (post coming)
*Family coming in town to help with the move.
*Wonderful gender reveal party with sweet friends.

Looking forward to: This baby looking more like a bump than fat... I know that is superficial! 
Size of Baby: Size of an heirloom tomato!
What Baby's Up To: (from BabyCenter
Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.

Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
***My doctor said our baby was already bigger than this over a week ago!!!
