How far along: 19 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 12 pounds gained (what happened here? what was about 1 pound a week has turned into what feels like a pound a day, and this pattern cannot stick).
Maternity clothes: Dipping more and more into the basket of hand-me-down maternity clothes, and loving it. Getting dressed poses a more significant challenge every day, and often I leave with a pile of failed attempts strewn across the bed.
Stretch marks: Still none.
Sleep: Sleeping well, but that has always been one of my special gifts.
Best moments this week: Seeing old friends, meeting a cute baby girl (so tiny!), date night with Andrew (Indian food and Batman), and heavy summer rainstorms.
Worst moment this week: A few hard days at work and some really bad allergies. Also NuMom2B appointment was rescheduled.
Food cravings: loving oatmeal with sliced banana every morning, and carrots with hummus.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing this week.
Labor Signs: None.
Innie or Outie: A slightly more shallow innie.
Wedding rings on or off: On, for now.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Some moodiness last week (see hard day at work comment), but mostly happy.
Looking forward to: 20 week appointment on Friday, getting to see baby girl again, getting to take a break from reality as it exists today and focus all my attention on a tiny little person and my best friend.
