18-20 weeks pregnant

so we were supposed to find out the gender of baby m at week 19... but the little stinker sat breach and indian style pretty much the whole time. good news is that everything else looked great and it was so amazing to see that little face and everything else! we'll have another scan in a few weeks and hopefully the baby will be a little more cooperative!

my symptoms:  i've just felt really full lately. i've also had a weird back pain, but it doesn't seem to last long. 

weight:  i'm up 13 pounds. this scares the bejeezus out of me, but i brought it up with my doctor and she said i'm right on track. i feel like my hips are way more pregnant than my belly, but i think i've mentioned that already.

gender:  hopefully we'll find out in 17 days! 

maternity clothes: maternity clothes, scrubs, sweats, dresses, leggings... they're my faves. 

movement:  i was right about the baby sitting low! now i feel like it's a little higher. i do feel like i feel the baby more. my placenta is in the front of my belly though, so the doc said it might take a little longer for me to feel it.  

sleep: still loving my pregnancy pillow. i'm waking up once a night to head to the bathroom, but i'm getting really good at not totally waking up to do it ;)

cravings:  oatmeal cream pies, milk, toaster strudels, watermelon, strawberries, pineapples, water, water, water. 

what i miss:  diet mountain dew

appointments:  none this week

questions/concerns:  i want to ask my doctor about this back pain. it's only happened twice but dang does it hurt when it happens. 

goals for the week:  pick out nursery furniture

  3. Looking lovely! I hadn't had a toaster strudel since I was a teenager and suddenly had to eat a box back in January! Ha! Glad the maternity pillow is helpful - it was a luxury worth investing in!

  4. I'm gonna go ahead and guess boy. Low in front is a boy. You look so good and happy! I'll take your cravings over mine. I would crave chicken from Long John Silvers. Disgusting but man did it ever hit the spot!! :)

  5. Hi Courtney! I was wondering if you would be open to reviewing one of our products. What is a valid email I can reach you at?


  6. You look great! I swore I was carrying one of my girls in my butt because of how wide it got!
