19 weeks

I feel extremely fortunate to be 19 weeks pregnant today, when just a short week ago I didn't know what the hell was going on with my body, my baby, or my pregnancy. Things have calmed down "down there" - I have no more pressure or pain, which is good. I'll be seeing my OB next week, and we'll discuss what happened while we were in Texas.

Bunlet is now the size of a mango!

I can tell that Bunlet is getting bigger, because I huff and puff when I have to do anything remotely active, like climbing stairs. When Roy and I were in Texas, I went up to the third floor of my uncle's house (lots of stairs!) to talk with my brother, and Roy could hear me gasping for breath down on the first floor. That's hot.

Also, my back tends to start hurting if I'm walking around a lot. I feel old. Old and pregnant. And I still haven't felt movement! I guess what I felt a few weeks ago wasn't really it. I'm bummed that I still haven't experienced Bunlet moving around, but one of the nurses at the Texas hospital told me that she suspects I have anterior placenta. If that is the case, then that explains why I haven't felt movement yet. Or maybe I just haven't felt it because it's still too early. Whatever the case, this is another thing we'll be discussing with the OB next week.

Anyway, here's my belly pic for the week, taken this morning:

Here's a picture of me modeling the Moby wrap that I ordered last week from BabyCenter's huge honkin' sale.

Yeah, that's a stuffed dinosaur. He made a good stand-in baby.

Here's to another week of pregnancy!

You look adorable.

Wow, you're almost halfway there! I love the dino baby.

The Moby is awwwwesome! (Although Em is on a bit of a Moby strike as she refuses to bend her legs when she's in it. Hopefully she'll be pro-Moby again soon.)

I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling better, I'm sure what happened in Texas was quite a scare. You look so pretty :D

kim said...

Cute belly!

That moby wrap scares me, though! It looks like you are being attacked by fabric!

I love the dino baby, too! But my that wrap does look complicated.

I hope that things go more smoothly. That hospital stay didn't sound like fun at all. (I just got caught up on your last posts.)
