19 weeks...

19 weeks is here! I can't believe we're almost at the halfway point (I know, every week I can't believe how far we are... get used to it). It's been a really great week as we had lots of quality family time, a great family hanukkah party and just basic sloth time relaxing around the house.  I got to spend time with my mom and my best friend - what could be better?! Our little girl has been fluttering around a storm in my belly and I can't wait to start feeling her kick and for DJ to feel her move!

19 week breakdown:
  • baby j is the size of a mango! six inches long and weighs about 8.5 ounces.
  • gender: bring on the five pointed crowns, we have a ZTA legacy! It's a girl
  • I've been feeling alright this week, just having a bit of a sore throat, lots of coughing and general achey-ness... but I've enjoyed having lots of downtime just relaxing and hanging out with our sweet girl (in my belly, hah)
  • We got the results of our second trimester screening test and everything came back normal, which is a huge relief! 
  • current cravings: barbeque popchips, strawberry ice cream, fresh fruit, anything and everything. let's just say I've gained a bit [LOT] more weight than what I've been reading I should have at this point, oh well. that's life - pass the ice cream.
  • time spent without DJ: three days/two nights. sad. he just got back from his business trip last night! Ollie and I are so happy to have him back!
  • number of episodes of 16 and Pregnant Watched: 6 [all in one day. pathetic. I know]
  • number of games of Phase 10 played on my iPad: 2093. seriously. a LOT.
  • leg cramps: happening pretty much every night now, no fun. 
  • hours spent researching strollers and infant carriers: 3244
19 weeks bumpin, bumpin - in my uniform of the week, sweatpants and tank tops...
