Baby Brown - Week 19

How far along: 19 weeks - almost halfway!!

Due date: March 27, 2016

Baby Size: a zucchini measuring at about 8 1/2 oz and 6 inches long!

Weight gain: +5 pounds and going up! Still lathering up with lotion though!

Maternity Clothes: oh yeah! Now that the weather is starting to get colder, I'm in desperate need of some long-sleeve maternity shirts. Any suggestions?

Stretch Marks: nope. 

Sleep: has been great lately.  Going to bed anytime between 9 and 10 p.m. and waking up normally around 7:30.

Gender: sweet baby girl! See the gender reveal post here!

Movement: oh goodness, YES! I finally have been starting to feel a little movement in there! Crazy to see the different weeks that mamas feel their babies move.  With the anterior placenta, I guess it made the wait a little longer, but I can most certainly feel it now.  I was laying on the bed the other day and put my hand on my bell and oh my gosh, it was the sweetest feeling in the world! To know that my body is able to produce another human being and I can feel it all happening is truly amazing.  Each new thing with pregnancy makes me so amazed by how much of a miracle giving birth is! I can't wait for the movement to get bigger and stronger!

Best moment this week: feeling B move, getting paint samples and a few items for the nursery, (see my ideas here) and receiving Brynlee's first gift in the mail! A sweet family friend, Sabrena, sent me this precious outfit and perfect little bibs! I'm sure I will be using them all the time!! We are so lucky to have such amazing friends and family that love Brynlee as much as we do already!

Looking forward to: 20 week anatomy scan on Thursday and heading to Reno for some of our baseball friends to get married! 

Husband is: trying his hardest to feel the baby move! And although I am not 100% positive he can feel it, he reacts when I feel it, so who knows, he probably does feel her! 

Food cravings: bagels, pop tarts, fruit, water!! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: ugh, don't even like to think of pulled pork!

Labor Signs: .........

Missing Most: nothing I can't wait another 5 months for :)

Symptoms: starting to feel some more lower back pain and noticing that my skin is actually starting to stretch - I can feel it! 

Nursery: coming along! Making paint decisions, carpet decisions and then getting the ball rolling is the next steps! 

Belly Button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Mood: Feeling great! Can't complain about anything!

Workouts: 2 body back workouts in the mornings, but this is the last week of that! They are trying to find more preggo friends to get a Fit4Baby class together, but nothing is official yet.  May have to start hitting up Planet Fitness again!

Questions for mamas: Any feedback on the Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back diaper bag??? I looked at it in the store and feel like a backpack would be great for me with the amount of baseball games this babe and I will be heading to. Thoughts?


  1. Love your updates!! I've been looking at that same exact diaper bag for the baseball reasons as well. Let me know what you find out!

  2. GAHHHHH you are just so cute! I am just giddy every time i read these! I think I saw someone (Nikki R?) post about diaper bags on the fb page and I think that bag was discussed on there!

  3. Girl you look amazing! And yay for you and hubby (maybe!?) feeling sweet baby girl!!! Also...give me all the poptarts....but really.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment on the blog! I cannot wait to read it and check out your blog! xx, cayte
