How Far Along: 19 weeks although I'm doing a combo since I missed 18
Size of baby: Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.
Gender: If you missed the announcement. It's a GIRL!
Total Weight Gain: Still 5ish lbs so far I think.
Sleep: I am mastering the sleeping on my sides. Pillows are your friend.
Symptoms: Feeling pretty good all around.
Cravings: Can't really think of any
Aversions: Apparently I hated chicken this time last pregnancy. I still get weirded out by big chunks of chicken but nothing too crazy.
Movement: I feel little flickers at night while just laying down. David feels weird things, but I tell him it's my food digesting, but it could be baby.
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans on the weekend, but so far regular clothes with a bella band.
Best Moments this week: Announcing to our family and friends that we were having a girl. I will post more on the gender reveal party tomorrow. We were completely shocked when we went for our ultrasound at 18 weeks. I had been feeling the exact same way as when I was pregnant with Max so I was for sure that they were going to say boy. I really didn't care either way, but was definitely excited when she said it was a girl. David also swore he knew it was a boy, so he's in for a big surprise when little girl gets here. It's so fun though.
What I'm looking forward to: My sister is coming for an impromptu visit this weekend and we have to get planning Max's birthday party in a few weeks (like how I said we).

Little bump sprouting.
So I always look back on baby # 1 surveys when I do them and I was wearing the same dress! So here is a comparison. Looks pretty similar to me, maybe a little more bulge this go around, but it is a diff. angle slightly. I need new clothes I guess.
