19 Weeks

It's time for another bump update and this time I actually have a picture.  Plus I should have pictures for next week as I am going out of town this weekend which means my husband can play photographer.  I just need to be good and get some posts done this week for next week since I will be traveling for work again.  Where am I going you ask?  Palm Springs/Palm Desert and New Orleans, LA.  I CAN.NOT.WAIT.  I have never been to New Orleans and I am dying to have some amazing southern food (fried, creole, beignets, etc.).

Anyways, onto the bump/pregnancy update.
Babies and boobs are getting huge.

How far along: 19 weeks
Babies are the size of a: Zucchini/Heirloom Tomato/Mango.  Babies are about 6 inches long and 8.5 ounces each.  We had an ultrasound/anatomy scan yesterday and things are looking great.  Babies are measuring big and look to be perfect.  We have another growth scan on Friday with our perinatal doctor, so more pictures and more baby info. 
Babies are:  Developing a protective coating over their skin, called vernix caseosa.  They are also developing/working on their five senses.
Maternity Clothes: I wear some and still rock some non-maternity clothes.
Stretch Marks: None yet thankfully and hope they never show up.
Sleep: So-so because I have some allergies that are making my life miserable.  Anyone know of medicine I can take?
Symptoms: Allergies, backaches and swollen feet and ankles.
Best Moment of the Week: Seeing our babies on the ultrasound moving and shaking.  Plus having dinner with friends who also have twin baby girls.  So informative and fun.
Movement: Nothing.  I was told that it might not happen for a few more weeks since there are twins in there.  Get to moving babies.
Cravings: Fruit, pizza, ice cream.  Same as always.
Gender: Two precious baby girls.
Belly Button In or Out: In half way.  My belly button looks very awkward...especially when I laugh.
Wedding Ring on or Off: On and looking pretty.  I finally got my ring checked for any loose diamonds, polished and cleaned.  Looks brand new.
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Nothing right now.
What I Miss: Wine, especially on dinner nights with my girlfriends.
What I am Looking Forward to: Going to San Jose for the Nevada vs. San Jose State football game and having a weekend with my husband.  This much travel and I really miss him.
Labor Signs: Not even close.
Nursery: We picked out some colors for the walls, painted samples and now are trying to figure out which works best.  So hard to choose.
Emotions: Feeling ok.  These allergies are killing me and making it hard to function.  Ugh, go away allergies.  But other than that, I am feeling pretty good and no emotional meltdowns so far.


  1. YAYYYYY!!!!! I'm soo excited for you!!!!! *we're having girls!!!!!!* That bump is too cute ^_^

    I would try some home remedies. I don't have allergies but when I was sick I did use Tylenol Cold & Flu. It knocked it right out!

    1. I have been using a saline nasal spray 3 times a day and go the go ahead to take claritan once a day. I can breath better today, but still a bit stuffy.

  2. The doctor told me to take that, when they thought I had allergies. Glad your feeling better =)
