Gender Reveal!!! Pregnancy Log - 19 weeks pregnant

Friday was the big day and...

My family and friends were right, it’s a boy!  My hubby and I kinda thinking it would be a girl, and most of the gender predictors pointed that way, along with your guesses.  But I did have a very clear dream that I had a baby boy, so maybe that’s the best predictor?

So now that we know, we spent the weekend talking about boy's names and looking at ideas for the little guy's room.  Definitely feels more real after seeing the baby and know he's a boy!  So nice to be able to call the baby "him" instead of "it."  Hopefully we'll have a name picked out soon!  I thought we had boys names narrowed down, but since we've found out we are having a boy, we've been talking about a bunch of other baby names.

One thing we were sure about was if we are having a boy, we wanted to do a nautical themed nursery. So we went and got a bunch of paint samples over the weekend, but I can't decide how dark of a blue to go...

Bring on the blue
19 weeks - baby is the size of a large tomato
19 weeks - baby is the size of a large tomato

How far along?  19 weeks

Baby Size: The baby is now 10 oz according to the ultrasound, and the size of an heirloom tomato (According to babycenter)

Total weight gain/loss: about 8lbs

Maternity clothes?  Still wearing my non-maternity dresses and tights

Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep: Still sleepy, but I've been sleeping pretty well

Best moment this week: Having the long awaited ultrasound and getting to see my baby looking like an actual baby.  I was nervous about my appointment, I didn't do any of the early screenings so it was the first time I would get confirmation that our baby was healthy.  And I was very excited to find out what the baby’s gender, I don’t know how people can wait until the delivery.

Miss Anything?  Not too much

Movement: At my ultrasound, the baby didn't want to move much for us, but they gave me some sugary juice and that seemed to do the trick.  I can feel the baby moving more and more, hopefully Logan will be able to soon.  I learned that I have an anterior placenta, which makes it harder to feel the baby move.  I always feel movement in the same place (on one side) and the ultrasound tech said that it was because the placenta wasn't covering that section.

Food cravings:  I had really good Italian on Saturday night at one of my favorite restaurants  so I was looking forward to that, but no big cravings.  Still love to eat apples and I've been enjoying a carton of cookie dough ice cream.

Have you started to show yet: My belly is really growing!  Looks a lot bigger this week than last week

Gender prediction:  No more guessing, definitely a boy!

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Symptoms: Some lower back pain

Looking forward to: Now that we know it’s a boy I’m ready to get ready for our baby… figuring out a name, getting the nursery painted and all the decor, and all the other fun stuff.  Lot’s to do, but it should be fun!

Awesome! Congratulations!!! That is so exciting.

Nat said...

Yay a boy!!! I swear this is the year of boys! One of my friends just gave birth and it was a surprise and it was a boy! I don't know anyone having a girl this year!
Don't worry we have NO IDEA about boy names- right now we just refer to him as baby boy and I'm afraid that's going to be his name!
I just painted our dining room Hale Navy- it's a very deep navy but it's an awesome color. I also just did our powder room in feather gray and it would be a great color for nursery! (they're both by Benjamin moore but you can get them color mixed anywhere)
Can't wait to see what you decide to do!
