Baby Green Pickle: Week 19

Why we are calling this Baby "Green Pickle"... Nathaniel would like to name the baby "Green Lantern" if it's a boy and "Pickle" if it's a girl.

How far along... 19 weeks

Baby Green Pickle is the size of... a large heirloom tomato; roughly 8.5 oz and 6 inches long.

Total weight gain... +8 lbs

Maternity clothes... bottoms: yes; tops: yes and no.

Stretch Marks... haven't noticed new ones besides from my first pregnancy.

Sleep... lots of tossing and turning and waking up in blocks of 3-4 hours for potty break.

Best moment this week... it's a short work week for us!

Miss anything... Moscato.

Movement... little butterfly flutters! But nothing consistent yet.

Food cravings... pastries.

Anything making me queasy or sick... meat. I cannot stand the smell and taste of chicken, beef and especially pork.

Have you started to show yet... yes. But mostly, I look more fat than pregnant.

Gender... We're waiting to find out if we'll have a Green Lantern or a Pickle :)

Labor signs... none.

Belly button in or out... in

Wedding rings on or off... wedding ring on; engagement ring off (it's a half a size smaller)

Happy or moody most of the time... happy.

Looking forward to... our friend's wedding this weekend in TN. We have never been to Gatlinburg before so we are making it a mini vacation as well!
