19 Weeks

08/31/11

I’ve been so tired this week!! My sister and family came to visit us over the weekend and we had lots of fun tubing down the creek, roasting doughboys at our fire circle, and Cindy and I went shopping. I got some cute new maternity clothes (thanks in part to my Mom and Sis). But the weekend’s activities apparently tired me out. Uggg.. I haven’t been sleeping super well either. Either I have to get up to pee, or my legs start cramping, or my hips hurt… It’s going to be a long 21 more weeks.

But the baby’s getting bigger and kicking me a lot! I’ve graduated to wearing maternity clothes most of the time now. My pants still fit with the Bella Band, but regular shirts are getting too short. I think the baby is the size of a sweet potato this week, which seems huge to me (I know, I know.. wait until it’s the size of a watermelon)! And it’s 6 inches long and weighs half a pound. It baffles me that it could survive outside of the womb in just 5 weeks. I’m pretty sure I’m in for the long haul, though, and I’ll go past my due date. Oh well.

Changes this week: Bigger belly, tiredness like crazy!

Cravings this week: Berries… but I think that’s because they’re all around us! Yum!
