19 Weeks

In my worst showing yet, I forgot to take a picture this week! I'm going to see if Landon will help me remember to take one today (I'll update the post if that happens); it will be slightly late, but better late than never is quickly becoming my motto.
How far along? 19 weeks and 6 days
Total weight gain:  7-8 pounds. 
Maternity clothes: It's official--I cannot wear any of my regular t-shirts anymore. I thought for sure that they'd be long enough to make it a little bit further down the road, but that's not the case. It looks like it's all maternity all the time from here on out. 
Sleep: Give me more, lots more. Even though I'm now well into the second trimester, I'm still struggling to get my energy back. Whoever said I'd feel way better during this part lied. Even blogging, which I love to do, has become a chore (sorry, blog, for forgetting about you lately!). Is it nap time yet?
Best moment this week: Seeing how tiny a newborn diaper is. I know that sounds so weird, but Landon and I enamored with this free diaper sample I got at one of the maternity stores recently. I know the baby is going to be small when s/he arrives, but that teeny weeny diaper has really put things into perspective. 
Miss anything? Sub sandwiches. I love deli meats, and I love a sub sandwich. I just want a cold Jimmy John's Italian Night Club--only 139 days left!! (Landon has already promised he'll make sure I get one ASAP after we get out of the hospital!)
Movement:  Tadpole's a mover and shaker. The most enthusiastic kicking this week was when we were at Lowe's looking at backsplash for our kitchen renovation that's in the works. Does this mean that Tadpole will be a future DIY-er?
Food cravings:  I've gotten heartburn a lot lately, so right now I'm all about eating whatever won't make it worse (which is pretty much nothing). My one request this week? Sour gummy worms. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?  We went to Publix the other day, and Landon remarked on how the liquor store in the same shopping center was still open since it was pretty late. I thought about the taste of alcohol and got so sick that I had to sit in the car and gag in the parking lot. I definitely was avoiding alcohol anyway, but I think it's crazy that I've got such an aversion to it lately!
Gender:  We find out on THURSDAY of this week!!!
Labor signs: Nope. 

Symptoms: Super heartburn supreme, constant sleepiness.
Belly button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time:  Happy, happy for the most part...though there have been some random crying moments.
Looking forward to: Finding out if we're having a girl or boy!
