"There is nothing like the blessing Of a bouncing, babyboy He will fill your home with energy And touch your heart with joy. He’ll hug you and bug you And try you within But each precious memory You’ll treasure again and again." -Linda LaTourelle
How far along? 19 Weeks How big are babies? Head to rump, my baby is about 6 inches long and a little over 8 ounces. When we went for our ultrasound the baby was 8 ounces. Weight gain? Not much. At my doctors appointment I still weighed the same. Hoping I will start putting on some pounds soon. Strech marks? Not yet. But my mom and sister got me a nice container of cocoa butter to help prevent them. Maternity Clothes? Nope, all of my clothes still fit me. I went ahead and bought a few dresses from Target that seem like they will work when I start getting fat. So I am prepared. Sleep? I think my baby is a night owl like me. Lately I want to stay up all night and sleep all day. I still sleep a ton but my hours are off. Best moment of the week? Finding out we are having a BOY!!! I didn't really have a preference. Growing up, I always said I wanted a boy first so he could protect his little sister but honestly I was very impartial. Erik on the other hand was sure it was a boy and never called it "she" once. He even wore a blue shirt on the day of the ultra sound for good luck. So he was beyond happy when he found out it was a boy. I think he was just worried that if he had a little girl, she would own him. Ha! But we are both very happy and feel very blessed. We have started coming up with name ideas. We like unique... do you have any suggestions? Food Cravings? Nope, none! I do crave Cinnamon Toast Crunch in the mornings and usually I don't feel like breakfast but for the most part, I really don't feel pregnant. So I am hoping I will get cravings soon. I just think it would be fun. Gender? It is a BOY!!!
Movement? Not yet. Sometimes I try to convince myself I feel him moving but no kicking yet. What I miss? Still missing chicken. Still not feeling it. I had Mexican the other day and wanted a frozen strawberry daiquiri. So I miss those too. And I miss having a tan. I am sure I am fine to layout but I am paranoid mother and have decided against it. Belly Button? Innie What I am looking forward to? Getting fat. Seriously. I want to look preggo! And feeling the little guy kick for the first time. Milestone? Finding out it is a baby boy. Now I feel like I can really start preparing for his arrival. I found the CUTEST Ralph Lauren onsies the other day. And I am loving the little smocked rompers. And I am really excited to start looking for things to decorate his nursery with!
We are so excited we are having a little boy!! Do you all know of any websites with cute baby boy items? Any cute nursery ideas?
