Week 19

(please dont judge my feathered lamp… it’s from my childhood bedroom)

Well I’ve reached week 19, the belly is growing a bit… But it’s definitely not an obvious baby belly yet. Crazy that its almost half over! We get to find out the gender in the next few weeks and I’m sooooo excited!! 

The first 18 weeks have gone a little like… 

This week I have started to get back to feeling like myself. June & July were such crazy months, and not just because we were busy, I am realizing now that I was super hormonal. It’s funny how (at least with me) When I’m being taken over my hormones I never seem to clue into the fact that thats what is happening… I just genuinely think that everyone around me is completely unreasonable! Last week one night I was trying so hard to be in a good mood and I felt like I was on drugs, I had no control! I wanted to enjoy my time but my female mind would not let me. This when I realized that all the crap thats been going on in my head the last couple months was because I am pregnant and there are tons of crazy hormones happening. Yay Girls! 

I have needed a lot of sleep, I can’t believe how tired I have been! By about 9:30 every night I’m fighting my eyelids. I could probably fall asleep anywhere at anytime throughout the day.

My boobs have multiplied by 10! To be honest I’m a fan of small boobs, so I’m not really enjoying bursting out of all my tops. But soon I’ll have a jumbo belly to balance it all out.

My Jeans no longer button up, at least not for long, they always end up un buttoned where ever we go. 

I haven’t really had any cravings I don’t think… I had every possible food aversion, mostly hummus, sweet potato, quinoa, green peppers… Oh man I’m making myself sick thinking about this phase, I have to stop.. But basically I’m so happy to finally be able to eat everything again! 

….And a little hello from these guys.

    I am so freaking excited for the little munchkin to get here… I maaaaaaaaaay have already found some super cute (gender neutral) things down here in Oregon (no tax!) and I still have two more weeks of roadtripping to go! Haha 🙂 miss you!! Paul says to tell David "don't ever shave his mustache" and to give him a big hug!

    I am so excited for you two! I am 20 weeks pregnant and can totally understand the sleepiness you were going through. Hope it all continues to go wonderfully!

    You look just adorable. I'll be 21 weeks on Friday…I find it so fun to read blogs of those who are due right around the same time as me. I actually have several friends that are due around the same time, too. So much fun to compare. I am really loving being pregnant, but it has also really taken its toll. Some days I'm not sure how I'll manage 20 more weeks…
