I have certainly started showing and I love it! I swear it just popped out within the past two weeks!
How far along? 19 1/2 weeks (5 months)
Total weight gain: 9 pounds as of this morning
Stretch marks? Not on my stomach - *Ahem* - the goods are going wild. :(
Sleep: Is very must needed at this point. I get SO tired. My bedtime is pretty early. For some reason my back just aches when I lay on my sides - it also kills when I am sitting. It's only on the right side right in the middle of my back. Has any one else had this? Whoa is me...
Best moment this month: Finding out we were having a little boy! (Even though I knew it all along) :) Also, I have loved feeling him kick like crazy. Mason got to feel him for the first time yesterday morning. He kicked him twice in the hand. I love feeling him move. My sweet little man is an active one already!!
Movement: Yup - all day long!
Gender: A beautiful bouncing boy
Labor Signs: none
Belly Button in or out? in still, although when I sit up it closes - kinda like a smiley face mouth. Mason and I love to laugh at it.
What I miss: Being able to sit for long periods of time without my back aching. I also miss the sun... but oh wait, that has nothing to do with being pregnant. Dang never-ending winter.
What I am looking forward to: Monday the 10th when we have another ultrasound to check out his lungs and everything to see if he is developing as he should. I love seeing my little one.
Monthly Wisdom: Don't lift anything heavy. My pregnant friend, Ashley, threw her back out and was flat on the ground for a couple hours this week. Yikes! I guess that's pretty good advice. I have gotten a lot of advice on things to buy too. Now I just need to register. (Does anyone even look at those things though?)
Milestones: On Wednesday I will be 20 weeks. HALF WAY THERE BABY! It's been so fast! I can't believe it. I hope this next half goes just as fast!!!
