19 Weeks Down, 21 More To Go!

19 Week Bump Board 

Baby Morris is a *GIRL*
Almost half way through my pregnancy! 

My whole pregnancy I have been saying that I was looking forward to feeling kicks and knowing the gender of the baby! How amazing is it that they both happened in the same week! My baby GIRL has been moving like crazy and mommy can finally feel her movements! I can say this past week has been hectic and I am ready for a nap. A long on too I'm not talking about an hour nap I'm talking about sleep COMA. I feel like Murphy's Law has always played a role in my life. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong and thats exactly how our announcement day went! The doctors office took so long Matt had to leave for work, my balloons were too big for the box and then the wind blew them everywhere and tangled them! Talk about a huge mess! In the end it was an amazing day and experience and we couldn't be more excited! As I always say, on that note, here is my 19 week post! 

This week's big developments: Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.  Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.

How far along?

Maternity clothes? Still packed away! Love my leggings though!

Stretch marks? No new ones. Applying lotion and bio oil like crazy! 

Sleep: Feeling crampy still but I have been so worked I am tired all the time! 

Best moment this week: Finding out the gender of our baby! 

Miss Anything? I miss my bras fitting right. ):

Belly Button in or out? In. It never popped out with Brayden. 

Wedding rings on or off? On and loose. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: I think I am still pretty bubbly and happy most the time! 

Looking forward to: Actually seeing movements and having a baby bump!
