Things that are Pregnancy Week 19

How far along: 19 weeks +5 days!

Total weight gain: At least 17 pounds

Maternity clothes: I've been wearing more maternity shirts this week compared to last week. I'm still sporting the maternity pants, though I have been having issues with them falling off me. So I'm constantly pulling them up.

Stretch marks: I haven't noticed anything this week.

Best moment this week: We got the baby's room all painted - a nice gray. We sold our couch that was in our upstairs loft and sold our spare bed. We're planning on getting a purple mattress this next month when our tax return comes back, and will move our bed into our other spare room. The loft is looking cleaner and more open. I've been feeling extra tired this week so I was only able to go to barre class once.

Miss anything: Being able to take medicine without thinking of how it will affect the baby.

Movement: Still nothing this week. I'm always a little worried when I hear others saying they can feel the baby, but I still can't. I was told the placenta was posterior, so I was hoping I would feel movement sooner.

Food cravings: Fruit and Veggies. It all tastes so clean and fresh.

Anything make you queasy or sick: Nothing this week aside from if I don't eat I start feeling nauseous.

Have you started to show yet: Still showing, a little more each day.

Happy or moody most of the time: This week I've seemed to be a bit more emotional. I'm sure it's due to the fact that we find out what we're having next week. I tend to get infertility PTSD when it comes to appointments so I start stressing and worrying before each appointment.

Symptoms: I finally got leg cramps in both legs last night and I woke up and took some Tylenol to help with the cramps. Other than that I don't have any other symptom.

Belly button in or out: It's getting closer to being an outie, but still a few weeks away, I think.

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender this week. I'm planning on practicing my relaxation techniques when I'm in the waiting room to help me stay focused and relaxed. I'll let you know how it goes!


  1. I love reading these! Good luck with the infertility PTSD - I know that feeling all too well. Also, I didn't feel my first until 23 weeks, and my second at 20 weeks. (I think I probably would have if I had known what it felt like!) So fun!

  2. Thank you! It was much better at our appointment today. I tried using my relaxation techniques to help relax me and that helped.

  3. So cute! I think I was super far along before I could obviously identify movement. If you can find a prenatal yoga class near you I'd highly recommend it! It was super helpful in getting good breathing techniques for labor and some good stretches to open up your hips and relieve your back.
