Busy Bee!!

So I'm still horrible at updating, but I swear I'm trying to get better about it! The pregnancy has been progressing smoothly! I am currently 19 weeks and 2 days.

 We went in for an elective ultrasound on August 19th, and found out that Baby Camera Happy is .........

My hubby and I are both very excited as we were hoping our first child would be a girl. Her name is Piper Harlowe, and she enjoys kicking her legs and playing with her umbilical cord.
We are working now on getting the nursery together!

We have purchased a crib for a KILLER deal at Babies R Us ($299.99 marked down on clearance for $99.99)
Cute bedding from Burlington Coat Factory:
In The Woods by Cocalo ($169.99)
We found a glider at a garage sale:
$10.00, we purchased fabric to make new cushions though, as this color doesn't go, and the cushions themselves have definitely seen better days.
We are also getting a free dresser in fabulous condition from a close friend, but I don't have pictures of that yet! 
All in all I would say we've gotten a good jump on baby things! 
Now if we could only find the right place to move to....

Check In:

  • How far along?: 19 weeks 2 days
  • Total weight gain: I was up 9 lbs at my last appointment in August.
  • How big is baby?: Little one is the size of a mango this week!
  • Maternity clothes?: Yes please! At work I'm wearing big scrubs, and in everything else it's maternity all the way!
  • Movement: I felt my first movement last week. I was singing along with Adele in the car, and I'm pretty sure baby was telling me to shut up :)
  • Stretch marks?: Not yet, but my Linea Nigrea has shown up!
  • Sleep?: I am tired all the time. Still. I think the majority of this has to do with getting up at 3 am for work.
  • Symptoms?: Nausea has subsided for the most part. I'm still sleepy all the time. My boobs are getting huge. I call them circus boobs.
  • Food cravings:  Still changing constantly.

  • Food Aversions: Red meat. Ick.
  • Belly button in or out?: Still an innie. Although it's gotten a lot wider at this point.
  • What I miss: I miss being able to go out for drinks with the girls.
  • What I'm looking forward to: My next ultrasound (September 9th!)
  • Best Moment this week: This week we are still high on life after finding out little one is a girl.
