195. 19 week pregnancy update!

How far along: 19 weeks 5 days.

How big is baby: The size of a mango (woah!) at about 6 inches long and weighing about 8.5 ounces (so small!)

Maternity clothes: Leggings, mostly, but I need some longer tops to wear with them! I got a lovely pair of red trousers for work, which are under bump so they fit already, but they don't go with boots so I'm not wearing them very often (It's SO cold here right now!)

Stretch marks: Not yet!

Sleep: Last night I couldn't get to sleep because my tummy hurt so bad, I think it was the strain of lying to the side because as soon as I bunched half the duvet under my bump I felt much better. I think I need to invest in a magical maternity pillow - I already have a v-shaped feeding one, any suggestions?

Best moment this week: Yesterday morning I (& my friend Lora!) felt the baby move from the outside for the first time! SO early! Makes me so happy to feel him/her wiggling around in there!

Belly button in or out: Just flat right now.

Craving: Fresh fruit.

What I miss: Fitting into clothes! I had a ridiculous meltdown this morning because I couldn't find anything to wear! Boo! Silly pregnancy hormones made my morning REALLY hard.

What am I looking forward to: 9 days!

Milestones: Developing a protective coating over the skin & working on the senses. Wow.

This week has been pretty good, except for a little sickness & hormones running riot. I was having a tough time this morning for no real reason, and when we got close to school Daniel started screaming & I couldn't work out what was wrong so we both came home and had a movie-day, snuggled on the sofa. Makes me super scared about having TWO crying/difficult babies, but also super excited about having two babies to cuddle, weirdly!

I have a teeny feeling that we're having another boy! I haven't been able to decide before, I kept just changing my mind, but I just keep thinking about having two boys! Only time will tell!!

Trying to spend as much one-on-one time with Daniel as I can, doing special things. I'm finding having something to focus on helps me ALOT. For example, last week we did lots about buses, and I think this week we'll work on colours! I'm almost half way - HALFWAY people!! - which means only 21 weeks left of our little family of three!!

Lots of Love
