19 Weeks with Kellan




How far along: 19 weeks, 7 days (in the photo)
 
Total Weight Gain/Loss
: 8/9 pounds

Maternity clothes: None yet, just using a belly belt every now and then.  

Stretch marks: None

Sleep: Still wonderful

Best moment last week: We had some crazy Texas weather that allowed for a FOUR day weekend... That's right!  We were iced in for four days and it was LOVELY.  We had a fire going every moment, a camping bed on the floor and Christmas movies a plenty.  After such a stressful Thanksgiving break it was such a joy to get some serious resting time with my little family.  On top of it all, we got to see Kellan and Josh finally felt him kick!  
 


Movement: Daddy got to feel two kicks this week!

Food cravings: Banana bread and pineapple, banana, orange juice.

Gender: BOY!!!  

Labor signs: Just regular contractions from having IU (irritable uterus).  Unfortunately when they measured my cervix last week it was measuring between 2.8-3 cm.  They want you to be between 3-5 cm and anything below 2.5 can require a cervical cerclage.  We are desperately trying to avoid that option so I've been on pelvic rest and will be getting measured again this next week.

Belly button - in or out? In, but it is getting closer and closer to being flat

What I miss: It would have been super excellent to get to indulge in some adult beverages whilst being iced in this past weekend, but I'd much rather have our sweet boy kicking away inside of me than a glass of wine in my hands. :)

What I am looking forward to: Hitting the halfway point!

Milestones: Baby kicks
