Weight Gain: At this point I've gained about five pounds. Yes, just five pounds. Needless to say, my doctor had some words to share with me at my last visit. Yet, I reminded my doctor that I tend to wait until the end to gain all of my weight so I'm hoping I can hold off gaining excessive weight until at least next month! Because have no fear, I'll have gained 40+ pounds by the end.
Cravings/ Aversions: I have been craving some sweet tea and pizza! I could seriously eat pizza every.single.day. It's a good thing the husband has spent most of his nights working this month which means he could venture out and expand his dinner menu. However, Harper has been happy to oblige so it works for us girls (: As for aversions, the only thing I can't do is steak. I tried eating just a taste of Kevin's steak recently at dinner and with just one bite I had lost my appetite.
Exercise: What's that? haha I've come to the conclusion that working out isn't going to happen this pregnancy. But I have been wearing my fitbit each day and have been meeting my daily goals so for that I'm thankful and we'll chalk it up to a win-win.
Stretch Marks: Not yet. Let's hope it'll stay that way friends.
Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing regular clothes but I did manage to break out a few pairs of maternity jeans. I've worn them a time or two but my belly hasn't quite gotten big enough yet to hold them up so on the few occasions I've worn maternity jeans, I've spent most of the time pulling them up over and over which can be rather annoying.
Wedding Rings On/Off: On
Sleep: I'm still sleeping like a baby. As soon as my head hits the pillow, I am out like a light. One thing has changed since last month and that's that I'm no longer waking up in the middle of the night to go potty. Our little guy apparently decided he no longer liked laying on my bladder. Thank you Jesus!
Movement: Our little guy definitely doesn't move around as much as his big sister did which often leaves me worried. However, each night he reminds me he's still hanging in there. It seems he's going to have his nights and days mixed up! Fingers crossed that we can get that changed before he decides to enter the real world.
Symptoms: At this point, the only real symptom I've got going on is my growing belly! Nausea has disappeared; I've finally gotten some energy back; and I'm not running to the bathroom every ten minutes. You have no idea how excited these three little things make me!
Best Moment This Month: We got to see our little man this month when we went in for our anatomy scan. From the looks of everything, he's perfectly healthy. At 19 weeks he was weighing in at just around 9 oz. and was about the size of a small cantaloupe. He's apparently going to be just like his big sister and refused to show us his face but we managed to get a quick sneak peek before he could cross his arms over his face. From that little glimpse, it appears he's going to also look like his big sister. Those Holt genes sure are strong.
Looking Forward To: Kevin getting to feel our little guy wiggle around in there and working on Boston's nursery!
