19, 20 & 21 Weeks: Baby Crockett 2.0

How big is the baby this week? Baby was the size of a mango, cantaloupe, and banana, respectively. 

Due Date: Still on track for May 8, 2014

Weight Gain: My dr apt last Friday showed me up about 4 lbs, but I'd be willing to bet that it fluctuates a bit and I might be up a little more than that.

Symptoms: Heartburn, baby kicks and rolls, occasionally still a bit of nausea.  I definitely feel very pregnant, but I'm also very aware this time around that this is the "sweet" time of pregnancy, so I'm reminding myself to enjoy it:)

Cravings: Steak, sushi, milk.

Aversions: No major aversions.

 Able to stay up later, but still pretty tired by mid day.  The snoogle has made its appearance in our bed, which the hubs isn't a huge fan of, but as he said the other night- at least I'm still able to sleep in our bed.  We both remember those last few weeks/months with E when I had to sleep on the couch to be able to breath.

I am loving: Feeling baby move!  I really think that is the best part of pregnancy.

I miss: raw sushi and alcoholic drinks in general.

I am looking forward to: Putting together baby boy's nursery.  I have a fairly clear vision in my head, but it will all have to wait for a bit as we first plan to replace the carpet in his room and Emersyn's.

I'm spazzing about: If this baby will ever have a name.  I have a definite favorite, but Blake is not quite on board.  I keep reminding him he got his first choice with E. 

Best thing about this week: We had our big ultrasound last Friday- we were incredible thankful to hear that baby looks 100% normal, and as far as they can tell, healthy!  I know this is not a guarantee, but it feels like we can breathe a little easier for a bit.

Milestones: Over halfway to meeting our son!

Movement: All the time.

It's a...: Boy!


  1. Seems like this pregnancy is going by so fast! Can't believe you are over halfway already. Praise the Lord for a health baby boy! :)
