19 weeks 5 days with a basketball belly

ok pause.

When I shrunk this photo for blogger, it created these lines in my shirt. These lines don't really exist at all. It's just a normal purple shirt. And now it looks like I have weird ridges all over my tank top. Ugh! How annoying! Anyway :)

How far along? 19 weeks 5 days. Let's just say 20.

Total weight gain: 9lbs.

Maternity clothes? Mostly just loose-fitting pre-pregnancy shirts.

Sleep: Doing much better! I flop from my left side to right side all night, but it's no big deal.

Best moment this week: Getting her nursery set up and ready to roll!

Movement: She's moving right now! This morning I felt her much higher than I've ever felt her, but right now she's back to being low.

Gender: Daddy's little girl!

Labor Signs: Nope!

Belly Button in or out? In!

What I miss: Not getting up to pee during the night :) I miss those days when I had a normal-sized bladder!

Weekly Wisdom: Um, drink lots of milk? I'm so bad at these weekly wisdom things.

Milestones: Being one day away from being HALFWAY THROUGH with this pregnancy!


This week, our little girl...
-Measures about 10 inches long
-Weighs about 10.5oz
-Is now producing meconium
-Is now familiar with my voice

I didn't realize how much my belly stuck out until I saw these photos. Woah! It looks like a little basketball under my shirt!

Last night I talked to C for about 30 minutes on the phone. We talked about everything, including Punkin. He says we should nickname her SpiderGirl and thought that was just hilarious. He still says he wants a little sister "so bad," and even told his mama (my sister) to "talk to God" about it.

He is so ready for me to come see him. He hast a list of things we have to do together:
-play Mario (the original version on the original Nintendo!)
-play a variety of games (Hungry Hungry Hippo, Don't Break the Ice, etc.)
-go to a couple softball games of his
-sleep in his bed with "hundreds" of stuffed animals
-go swimming

So so so so excited! Yet sad that I can't bring M with me. However, he gets a 4-day weekend this week (Military Family Day, the weekend, and Memorial Day) -- yippie skippie for military holidays!

Did I mention that I won a FuzziBunz cloth diaper from a local drawing and The Jesus Storybook Bible from MckMama? I did, and I can't wait to see them! We also tried a free trial of Netflix and promptly canceled it -- it wasn't too great for us. Tonight I tried a chicken-rice-mushroom soup casserole thing, and it was good. Got my bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding. Working on a tan so I'm no longer pasty white. Wishing it would get steamy hot here, because I'm so ready for it.

The end :)


  1. That's how I knew it was a girl... Look how high your carrying her:)

  2. I would drink a gallon of milk in 3 days all the time when I was pregnant. YUM!

  3. Oh you have to post the casserole recipe, that sounds yummy!

    I'm so excited that you're almost half way. It seems so close and so far away all at the same time.

    I really love that Storybook Bible, as soon as I'm married it's one of the first things I'm going to order for when I have kids.

    Oh and that is so adorable that C wants you to have a sleepover with him, it'll be very interesting to see if you can squeeze your bump into a kiddo kid. I think he's going to get such a shock when he sees your bump, he's used to seeing his mom with one but your his friend!

  4. I drink so much milk it's crazy! I love milk, but I didn't think I could go through so much milk, praise God for WIC!

    You look so pretty! I can't wait to go get more maternity clothes! :) I'm getting so excited! I can't wait! Half way there today! :) :)

  5. Again, you're just so cute! I love your basketball belly! :)
