19 weeks | Baby Funk 2

  • How far along?: 19 weeks 
  • Baby is the size of a: tomato (6 in, .5 lbs) (according to WTE Pregnancy)
  • Total weight gain/loss:  -0- I'm back to pre-pregnancy weight.
  • Stretch Marks? Nope.
  • The Bump: It's made its appearance and is only getting bigger!
  • Symptoms:  None really.  I have energy and feel pretty good.
  • Food Cravings: I'm seriously eating everything in sight!
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Pulled pork...gross.
  • Sleep: I've been uncomfortable this week and toss and turn all night.
  • What I miss: Sleeping through the night without having to get up.
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: On.
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: No and I don't even know where to begin.  Michael and I are so opposite on these things.  We didn't have a name for Emma until a few weeks before she was here....AND she was a week late.  Ha!
  • Gender: Still keeping it a SURPRISE!  Michael found out and of course, couldn't keep it a secret and told me.  It's so funny to hear what my family thinks and others guess.
  • Movement: Baby is still kicking right before I go to bed. 
  • Maternity Clothes: I am loving my new maternity clothes from Pink Blush Maternity. Still in workout clothes and wearing my belly band.
  • Labor Signs: No!
  • Best Moment of the Week:  Getting to see our little babe again at our doctor's appointment.  We had to go back this week to check the "non" progress of my cervix.  Baby still looks good and healthy.
    • Side Note:  We found out at our last appointment that my cervix was showing where it should be at 26 weeks.  Just a little bit of a scare.  This week it showed right back where it needed to be....BUT now my placenta is laying low.  Just taking it easy until my next appointment.  Prayers are welcomed! 
We also went out for my birthday and had such a great time!  It was a good 4th of July weekend.







  • Feeling:  Really good.
  • What I'm excited about/looking forward to:  A relaxing week at the house with just the three of us.  We have been so busy lately.  That also means catching up on housework...blah!

  • Gender: Still keeping it a SURPRISE!  Michael found out and of course, couldn't keep it a secret and told me.  It's so funny to hear what my family thinks and others guess.
  • Movement: Baby has definitely started kicking right before I go to bed.  They aren't hard kicks and only 3 or 4 just to let me know it's in there.

    • Side Note:  We found out at our appointment that my cervix was showing where it should be at 26 weeks.  Kind of a scare!  Prayers are welcomed!  We go back next week to make sure we aren't at risk for pre-term labor.
  • Feeling:  Relaxed.  Just taking it easy while still trying to keep up with Emma. 
  • What I'm excited about/looking forward to:  I'm looking forward to another ultrasound next week.  I love getting to see our little baby on the screen.  Also looking forward to Michael's childhood buddies coming down to visit for the 4th and going out (kid-free) for my birthday.

Week 17 | Baby Funk 2


  • How far along?: 17 weeks
  • Baby is the size of a: my palm (5 3/4 in, 4 oz) (according to WTE Pregnancy)
  • Total weight gain/loss:  -2 lbs
  • Stretch Marks? Nothing new so far.
  • The Bump: It's made it's appearance and is only getting bigger!
  • Symptoms:  Still getting pregnancy headaches daily.  I'm hoping they go away soon. Oh, and I have this weird dry spot on my face that I'm pretty sure is from pregnancy. (Any helpful tips to get rid of it?)
  • Food Cravings: Sweets.  I've had hot chocolate, Snickers bars, chocolate cupcakes.  I want so many sweets!
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Michael made burgers a few nights ago that made me nauseous, but they were soo good!
  • Sleep: I'm going to bed really early and sleeping pretty well.  Still taking an afternoon nap with Emma as much as I can.
  • What I miss: Sleeping through the night without having to get up.
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: On.
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: No and I don't even know where to begin.  Michael and I are so opposite on these things.  We didn't have a name for Emma until a few weeks before she was here....AND she was a week late.  Ha!
  • Gender: It's a.....SURPRISE!  Michael found out and of course, couldn't keep it a secret and told me.  He already blabbed it to a few close friends and his parents, but we've decided to keep it to ourselves from everyone else, including my family!
  • Movement: I've started to notice some fluttering, but who knows.
  • Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I went shopping this week for some new things.  Still rocking sweats and workout clothes.
  • Labor Signs: No!
  • Best Moment of the Week:  Emma and I had a Sno Cone date with the hubs and our sweet neighbor, "D" (Em's bff).  It was such a nice day to go.  You can see pics here. I also had a bittersweet moment with Emma.  We are going on one week weaned from breastfeeding.  It just kind of happened.  I don't think she was quite ready and neither was I, but with being pregnant, I was exhausted.  And she is a huge wiggle worm.  It was a lot of work, but worth every second these last 13 months.
  • Feeling:  Relaxed.
  • What I'm excited about/looking forward to:  I'm looking forward to our anatomy scan next week and getting to see our little baby again.  And Michael's second Father's day should be good too!
