baby moore: 19 weeks

I can’t believe I’m already almost halfway with this pregnancy…and that my last update was seriously a month ago. They weren’t kidding when they said that time flies the second/third/fourth time around. I’m so busy with Spencer, work, life and everything that I barely have time to reflect on it. That said, I’m so thrilled to share another update with you.

How far along: 19 weeks

Size of Baby: Papaya

Gender: We did an early ultrasound while we were in Utah around 16 weeks, so we’re pretty certain we know what baby Moore is, but you know there’s always a margin of error! We find out for sure on the 12th…but I’m still not sure whether we’ll share.

Weight Gain: Woof. I’m up 11 lbs. Hello, double digits! Here’s the thing – I’m still not at my starting weight that I was when I got pregnant with Spencer. I consider that a victory.

Movement: I started feeling the peanut a few days ago for sure, and I finally felt the little bean on the outside for the first time two nights ago!

Sleep: I am finally sleeping like the dead. I take a potty break or two at night, but then I’m back out until I have to wake up to work out at 6 AM.

Workouts: I’ve been making a point of getting a run in every single day – even if it’s just a mile. Granted, that’s the past few days. Spencer and I have been passing the same cold back and forth for a few weeks, and I’m finally getting over it, so I’m happy to be back to activity.

Maternity Clothes: I’m wearing a mix. I live in my Blanqi leggings if I’m not wearing my pre-pregnancy jeans with a hair tie. For church, I’m definitely wearing maternity dresses because my pencil skirts obviously don’t fit anymore!

Cravings/Aversions: It depends on the day. I’m still not really into chicken, and the smell of cooking olive oil makes me nauseous, but other than that, I can do most things in moderation! 

Best Part of the Week: I got to hear the sweet peanut’s fast heartbeat on Tuesday! It was hovering right at 150 bpm – strong and steady. Baby is low, low, low, and doctor thinks I’m measuring a touch on the small side, but it was so good to hear that sweet sound again. 

Can’t Wait For: Finding out the gender for sure on the 12th! I really have no doubts at all, but I’ll be happy to have the health, size and everything else confirmed. Here’s to a really good screening next week!
