Waiting For a Bump: Un-Bump Pictures
I thought I would be one of those pregnant people who took a cute belly picture every week. In two days, I'll be 19 weeks pregnant (almost halfway!) and am still waiting for a bump to happen. I can tell that I look different, my jeans fit tighter, and I feel funny laying on my stomach. However, I mostly just look like I'm putting on weight. So great.
Feeling: Good! I'm sleeping well, feel like I have my normal energy back, and haven't been nauseous since about week 14. If I don't eat right away in the morning, I get light headed and tingly very easily. I'm not a headache person, but weeks 14-15 I had some pretty miserable ones. I tried drinking more, eating more, and sleeping more, but the best thing was caffeine. My doctor told me reasonable amounts of coffee are fine, as long as I am not drinking espresso. I haven't felt the baby move yet.
Craving: Orange juice, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob (with lots of salt and pepper), unsweetened iced coffee. I really haven't been hungry for sweet things -- Jon eats ice cream without me, and the other day he brought home a cookie from work for me and I didn't want it. Also, there are 7 Hershey bars in the pantry for s'mores which are strangely uneaten.
Boy or Girl?: Our ultrasound is scheduled for June 11, and we're hoping to find out then! I don't have "a feeling" either way. Jon is reallllllly hoping for a boy because, his words, "I don't know anything about girls."
Shopping: I'm working on a baby registry on Amazon, but have been avoiding any more baby shopping. So far I have a few boring things like baby hangers and a boppy (no cover), and a some more fun things including a couple outfits and a nursery chair.
