19 Weeks

~ Weight gain ~
 I know how much I weighed at my interview and we'll see how much I weigh at the end.  It's too depressing to think about on a weekly basis (or actually comes to term with the reality of it).  I know you're supposed to gain weight to support baby and such but this is really, really hard for me to deal with. 

~ Maternity clothes ~
 Barney took me shopping last weekend and we got a shirt that will stretch as I get bigger from Maurices (hence, not maternity!) and a pair of Silver jeans one size up from my normal size that will last me until the warmer weather comes around.

~ Sleep ~
 Love it!  I've been having some weird, weird dreams lately and have been screaming out in my sleep a bit more than normal.  Also, the creepy mid-sleep laugh that freaks Barney out has gotten even creepier.  It's evil and awesome. 

~ Best moment this week ~
  Getting my raise for 2011, STI (short term incentive - i.e. bonus) and review for 2010 for worky-work.  Nothing makes a person happier than knowing their work is appreciated. 

~Cravings ~
  Glazed doughnuts.  Candy - any and all.

 ~Gender ~
 Boy is winning in the pole and we find out in 2 weeks which means you have less than 2 weeks to vote.  If you vote correctly, you win...

~ What I look forward to ~
 Checking out a daycare tomorrow - I really hope we both love it and can trust them with our little one. 

~ Milestones ~ 
Baby is the size of a mango.  Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil, and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid.  The motor neurons in baby's brain -- the nerves that control muscle movement -- continue to develop,


  1. Happy to hear I am not the only one still rockin' the middle-of-the- night-I'm-being-murdered-scream ;)

  2. Congrats on your little one. Being pregnant is wonderful and hard all at once. Now following you from the Friday blog hop. Hope you'll come follow me
