Pregnancy Update: 19+3 Weeks

HOW FAR ALONG: 19+3 weeks

HIS SIZE: 6 inches long; the size of a zucchini

WEIGHT GAIN: 10 lbs. I have been so busy the past week that I am literally having to set reminders on my phone to eat.

SLEEP: Much better.

SYMPTOMS: I have been extra emotional this past week. In addition to some unexpected personal stuff going on this, I can definitely feel the impact of the pregnancy hormones. The "fun" rollercoaster of growing a baby! In all honesty though, I do really enjoy being pregnant.

{Commence Soapbox} In reference to really enjoying this pregnancy, I am extremely aware of those around me who struggle to start a family or are unable to have kids. I have very close friends that battle this reality of trying and praying and waiting. I feel immensely blessed that I have been given the privilege to have children and truly make an effort to be thankful for even the not so fun parts of pregnancy. If you are one of those people that incessantly complain about being pregnant, please STOP. If you can't stop than at least monitor the amount you complain. And keep in mind that the people you complain to may be the very people who would give anything to be in your shoes. I can't imagine what it must be like to want to grow your family and find that it is a struggle. The least you can do for those that walk this path is be gracious and empathic. {End rant}


MOVEMENT: Off and on. Wish it was more consistent because feeling him move sure is reassuring!

1: Milestone Blankets by BATZkids ($33) - This super cute blanket is gong to be such a fun way to track this pregnancy! And it is perfect that there is already a loop sewed in at the top for easy hanging. Follow them on Instagram @batzkids

2Zoe's Kitchen - I cannot get enough of this place right now. My current fav is the greek salad with chicken. I am ok with eating here a few times a week since it is on the healthier side. Anything has to be better than when I was pregnant with Ryann and eating two Chick-fil-a sandwiches three times a week.

3The Voice - So pumped this show is back on! I am loving me some Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus.
