19 weeks pregnant

How far along?  19 weeks
Total weight gain:  6-7 pounds
Maternity Clothes?  Yes and loving them!
Sleep:  Not great, but not horrible.  Every night is different.  Last night I was so exhausted by 8:00 and I actually slept well!
Best moment this week:  Agreeing on a girl's name that we both like.  Actually I love it and Tyler likes it and it's growing on him more, haha.  But now I'm sure it's a boy ;)
Miss anything?  Being able to shave my legs in the shower without pain.  My right pelvic area has really been hurting and it's awful when I have to lift my leg up to shave.
Movement:  Yes, I started feeling little flutters a week or two ago and now I'm feeling tons of movement, mostly at night :)
Food cravings:  chocolate milk
Anything making you queasy or sick:  I've been nauseous this week, but it's mostly from my headaches
Gender prediction:  Girl.  Tyler said to me tonight that he really thinks it's a boy.
Labor signs:  No
Happy or Moody most of the time:  I think pretty happy.  It seems like days that Tyler is home, I'm happy.  And when he is gone at night for village meetings, I'm moody.  I can't wait for him to be done.  Only a year left :(
Looking forward to:  6 more days until we find out if it's a boy or girl!
I haven't felt the best this week, especially the last couple of days.  It seems like I have a headache every day and I have been feeling really nauseous.  Isn't the second trimester supposed to be the easy one?  I feel like I have no energy and just want to sleep all day!  I still take advantage of nap time to lay down myself, but I'm still so tired all the time.  I also have been having some really strange blurry vision.  I have horrible eyes to begin with, but now my right away is blurry even with my glasses on.  I know your vision can change during pregnancy so I'm not really too worried.  But I'm wondering if all these headaches have anything to do with my eyes?  Who knows.  I did call the eye doctor and they said if my right eye continues to be blurry, I should come get everything checked out.

I can't wait to post next week after we know what we're having (hoping the baby cooperates so we can find out of course).  We find out on Monday and don't worry, I will post that night.  I won't make you wait until my Tuesday update :)


  1. Amy, only 6 more days?!? Yay!!!!! Can't wait to see that post! How fun that this week you decided on a girl's name, and on Sunday Joe and I just did too! :) Now, to come up with a boy's name. :)

    Your belly looks cute!

    1. Thanks, Bri! Yeah I'm very excited about our girl's name and we really have no clue on a boy yet. I guess we'll figure it out after we find out on Monday. Can't wait :)

  2. You look great. Can't wait to hear what your having. Are you going to announce the name you pick or wait till the baby is born

    1. Thank you! We aren't going to share the name until the baby is born. We figured we'd keep one surprise. And I don't like hearing people's reactions. I like choosing it because we love it and not because of what others think :)

  3. Yay! I'm so excited to hear on Monday!!!

    I had decided that when we have #3 we aren't even discussing names until after finding out the gender. Way too stressful trying to agree on something, especially if it never gets used LOL. But I agree, you most certainly will have a boy now that you've agreed on a girl name haha---that was probably part of Tyler grand plan to ensure a boy :-)

    1. We always said that too, that we wouldn't really even talk about names until we knew. But somehow I came up with this girl's name and now I love it. And I think you're right about the boy thing. I knew I should have waited! Haha, we'll find out soon enough I guess :)

    2. So, it must have been because I read your post before bed but I totally dreamed that you found out it was a boy and you decided to name him Kayden LOL.
