19 Weeks!

First, thank you SO MUCH for all of the lovely comments yesterday! We are very excited to be expecting a girl, however, we do NOT have a name picked out yet. Gus and Ellie are our dogs, but I can see how it would be confusing, so the Christmas card I ordered last night now reads Blake, Lori, Baby, Gus & Ellie. I'll fill you all in when we reach a decision on baby girl's name!

How big is baby this week?
Baby is the size of a mango.

Due Date: Our ultrasound yesterday confirmed May 8, 2012

Weight Gain: Up 1 lb. I started at 118, and I'm now at 122, so 4 lbs total so far.

Symptoms: Motion sickness, heartburn, round ligament pain. Baby kicks:)

Cravings: Milk, pickles, sushi, guacamole

Aversions: No aversions, but super saucy is STILL not very appetizing.

Sleep: Able to stay up later, I've taken to putting a pillow between my knees at night, and I'm trying to stick to sleeping on my side now. When I wake up, I'm usually awake for awhile before being able to fall back asleep. Woke up this morning at 4am when Husband got up to hunt, ended up watching a couple of episodes of Friends on dvd before being able to go back to sleep.

I am loving: Feeling baby move!

I miss: raw sushi and a good Bloody Mary.

I am looking forward to: Starting to buy stuff for a baby girl nursery- tea parties and ballet!

I'm spazzing about: needing to recover the chair we bought, and agreeing on a name!

Best thing about this week: Finding out the gender, and just getting to watch her at our ultrasound. She yawned at us and waved and is the CUTEST little alien looking thing I've ever seen!

Milestones: Husband felt baby move the other night and the look on his face was priceless.

Movement: I feel her everyday, multiple times a day and I LOVE it!

It's a...: GIRL!!!!


  1. Haha- that's too funny! :) I actually had to go back and look at the card again when I was leaving a comment yesterday because I saw other comments saying they loved the name! Now I'm anxiously waiting to find out what you will name your sweet girl!
