I have been using our ancient desktop since our laptop hasnt been working, and I was on the computer for about 20 minutes before we went to my in-laws for dinner...I came home to write an update post after I had loaded many pictures since June and the screen said that the computer has detected a hardrive failure...UGHH!!! So another post without our pictures & a quick update...I hope all of you are wonderful - I will need to spend some serious time catching up on blogs once we get ONE of our computers fixed!!
How Far Along: 19 weeks
Size of baby: 8.5 ounces, the size of an heirloom tomato & about 6 inches long
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 3lbs according to my scale at home
Maternity Clothes: I am still wearing my bella band with my jeans along with my work pants but dresses are still much more comfortable!
Gender: Well the debate is still out...at my appointment on the 2nd (17 weeks) the u/s sound tech quick looked and thought it was a GIRL! We were shocked (both of us were convinced it was a boy since my pregnancies have been so different)...she said she couldnt look long but if she had to guess she would say girl (Josh is still hoping for a "late bloomer"...)- we will confirm at my ultrasound on Friday and then I also have another u/s the following week. Being high risk has its perks of seeing the baby so much! What we do KNOW is that this baby is a feisty one...he/she was all over during my u/s would wave at us then move, then cross their legs & just would not stop!
Movement: Its great! It is such a God given gift, especially for this over emotional worried pregnant lady...I felt movement with Emma but because there was no amniotic fluid with her it was a different feeling, more uncomfortable I would say...
What I miss: nothing
Sleep: I have had no problem sleeping. I do wake up about every 2-3 hours to go to the bathroom but am able to go right back to sleep
Symptoms: My meat aversions are starting to come around...THANKFULLY! I am just not a meat less type of girl so that was hard!
Cravings: I still love chipotle...other cravings have been licorice, chips, pickles & Simply lemonade, the raspberry kind...SO good!
Best Moment this week: feeling movement is always the best moment for me. I feel the baby move especially after I eat, which I just love (eating & feeling the baby move :)
What I am looking forward to: My appointment on Friday - it is a 70 minute ultrasound so I hope my SIL enjoys watching her niece or nephew on the screen! Joshua cant go and because I have learned the hard way in the past to never go to an appointment alone, she is going with me. She has been such a wonderful support & am so thankful for her! Plus...hopefully the little bugger will let us confirm if its a he or she!
I hope all of you are having a wonderful week, I hope to have a computer working by this weekend...then I will be sure to let you know if baby Nixon is a boy or girl!!!
