How far along? 19 weeks, 4 days…143 days to go!
Size of the little darling? An heirloom tomato–6.0 inches and 8.5 ounces. I’m telling you, these fruit comparisons get a little more strange as the weeks progress.
Maternity Clothes? Still sporting much of my “normal wear”, however instead of dresses, now they are tunics…crafty, dont you think? We went shopping for New York holiday outfits last weekend and I almost had a meltdown..boo hoo, I know shut it.
Weight Gain? 11 pounds…as Jeff said “Natasha hasn’t had any problems gaining weight”–why thank you darling ;). I am still working out 3 times each week, though, and feeling great!
Stretch Marks? Thinking only positive thoughts and constantly smelling like cocoa butter as my best form of prevention.
Gender? Little Miss Sunshine is what I am going to call her until we finalize the name…I’ve had questions from some of you about that topic and yes, I promise to reveal soon. The first name is officially chosen, but we’re working on the middle…a name is WAY important, obviously.
Movement? The flutters and weird little sensations are just too crazy to put into words. Jeff felt one last week and the smile he gave me made my heart melt.
Sleep? Not too bad, I think I am just so tired I fall asleep easily. However, when I have to get up in the middle of the night to turn over or use the ladies room, I can’t just “hop” as quickly as I used to.
Food Cravings? Sweets, fruit, and any kind of fast food. I’ll admit it, I had Krystal one night for dinner this past week and it was amazing. I know, who am I and what have I done with the real Natasha?
What I Miss? Being able to venture out to the bars with friends as they celebrate their birthdays and shop the normal boutiques and stores for clothes…cry me a river–such petty little things.
Symptoms? Dry skin, small bladder syndrome, swollen feet–attractive huh? 😉
Best Moment of the Week? The gender reveal party and finally being able to share our news with friends and family…such a great day!
