How big is baby: The size of a Pomegranate!
Weight Gain: 20 pounds! I realized I hadn't been counting my weight from my first appointment so I made sure to ask this time. 20 pounds sounds like a lot to me, but my nurse said it is exactly where they want me to be. In fact they have started measuring me now and she told me that my stomach is measuring at 19 weeks, which isn't alarming or anything, just a little smaller than most woman at 21 weeks. So everything looks healthy and on track!
Stretch marks: Let's talk about something for a minute, and I am going to be really blunt here. From the very beginning of my pregnancy I felt like my boobs were on fire. Before I even knew I was pregnant I was positive I was because of how bad it was. By two months of pregnancy I had some stretch marks on my chest from how fast they had grown. I knew they had grown at a crazy fast rate, but I didn't know just how much until I finally did some new bra shopping with my mom last week. I went from not even a full A cup to a D cup! In about two months! Holy. Crap. I was floored. No wonder my old bra was killing me, I honestly don't know how I was still able to wear it, haha.
Sleep: My hips people, my hips! Sleeping on your side with a pregnant belly SUCKS! haha Sometimes I will roll over to my back just to get some relief and Trevor will then notice and tell me that I am not suppose to sleep on my back... the struggle is real people! The struggle is real!
To my Baby Girl,
For the whole week your Dad and I have been wondering what in the world we are going to name you! haha I have a few favorites but Trevor doesn't seem to love any of them. He hasn't really suggested anything he likes either, so who knows how long you will go without an official name. Hopefully we will have picked one by the time you arrive! In the mornings your Dad likes to put his hand on my belly and see if he can feel you move. I have told him you don't move much in the mornings and even if you did he would likely not feel anything just yet. He doesn't care though, I think he will check every morning just in case that day comes. Before we know it I am sure you will be moving and kicking up a storm on the daily!
It scares me a little with how much I already love you and you aren't even here yet. August honestly can't come soon enough!
I can't believe I just wrote the word Mom in reference to ME! ahhhh :)
