How Far Along: 19 weeks and 1 day

Size of Baby: According to The Bump, the baby is the size of a mango, weighs almost 8.5 ounces, and is about 6 inches long.

Total Weight Gain: +6.5 pounds, I gained half a pound this week.

Gender: We found out last Thursday that we will be having a sweet baby GIRL!!

Maternity Clothes: Almost everything I'm wearing now is maternity. I can still wear regular jeans and pants with the belly band as long as I'm wearing a blousy shirt. You can totally see the belly band through the shirt even if it's only slightly form fitting.

Wedding Rings On/Off: On

Stretch Marks: None yet

Sleep: I have to say, I've been sleeping great this last week! It is SO nice! I haven't really been waking up until about 30 minutes before my alarm goes off. I feel like maybe I'm reaching the "honeymoon" stage of my pregnancy. I'm sleeping better, I haven't been as sick, and my energy is getting a *little* better. :)

Cravings/Aversions: The craving for veggies is gone...sadly. I was hoping that one would stick around. The good news is that I haven't really started craving anything that's terrible for me. I'm still wanting mainly healthy foods, although I have enjoyed some Halloween candy lately! What is it about seasonal candy?! It's so much more tempting!!!

Symptoms: I really can't think of any specific symptoms I've been having lately. Like I said, I think I'm in the honeymoon stage! :)

Movement: There have been a few times where I've felt something that I *think* might have been the baby, but I'm still waiting on the moment where I know for sure that it's definitely the baby moving!

Mood: Happy!!!

What I Miss: I would really like to eat at Subway, which is weird because I never really wanted Subway before I was pregnant. It will have to wait until after March, though!

Looking Forward To: We are planning to start working on her room this weekend. We have a LOT of cleaning out to do first! Her room has been the room in our house where we just put random stuff ever since we moved in. The cleaning part isn't going to be fun, but actually working on making it into her room will be so much fun!!! :)

Best Moment This Week: It was amazing to see this sweet little profile at our ultrasound. We love her so much already! It was also so much fun being able to tell our family and friends that we were going to have a baby girl!
