You Make Beautiful things: 19 Weeks

How far along? 19 weeks

Total weight gain/loss:
This is hard to judge because I don't really have my starting pre-preggo weight... I'd say about +6 lbs though...

Maternity clothes? Some pants, but just the all elastic waist type, none with the weird belly panel.

Stretch marks?
haha okay, oh my stomach, no. But all the other ones are there with all their pride and glory from my constantly yo-yoing weight (85 lbs to 110 in less than a year due to an eating disorder in high school definitely causes the skin to stretch)

Pretty good, I love sleep! Still sleeping on my stomach, but trying really hard to sleep on my side. I have 3 pillows and one little NCSU roll pillow... I like pillow right now, and Charles is jealous and rolls over and sleeps on my side in the mornings (I wake up before him).

Best moment this week:
haha having friends at church try to cover up the fact that they wrote to another friend of mine who's having twin boys (and already has a 14 month old son) "no, you're lucky... boys are so much easier! Girls are needy, and expensive and high maintenance" haha and then "oh Kim, you'll be fine... girls are great!" haha thanks guys... thaaaanks!

Miss Anything?
Cold sandwich meat... a turkey sub from Subway would be divine right now!

Yep! A few flutters here and there :) I feel her the most if I'm standing up and eating or right after I eat and stand up.

Food cravings: Cheesecake, I made a really awesome turtle cheesecake I'll share on here later in the week. And anything salty!

Anything making you queasy or sick: No, Brooke's been so very nice to me! Really, I've only thrown up twice (if that) in the past 19 weeks... bless you sweet child!

Have you started to show yet:
Barely :( People at Zumba just think I'm getting fat... thaaaaanks again!

A sweet little lady, Brooke Grayson!

Labor Signs: Nope, but definitely some sharp pains in my lower pelvis when I stretch.

Belly Button in or out?
In, and it better stay in!

Wedding rings on or off?

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy happy happy... I do get annoyed pretty easily (I hate people that drive slower than the speed limit, and people who are rude and sarcastic)

Size of Baby:
She's 8 1/2 ounces and 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato.

Looking forward to: Hearing her little heart beat at our next appointment! I think it's in about a week or two, I should check that :)


  1. Such a blessing. Thanks for sharing. Soooo exciting!

    And I will try to be less sarcastic! Hee hee

  2. :) haha no, you're fine... your humor isn't mean sarcastic, I have just heard a lot of friend, most from church being rude/sarcastic towards each other and it really makes me upset. Enjoy your vacay and take lots of pictures!
