19 weeks and a sonogram

We had our 19 week sonogram today and everything went PERRRRFECTLY!  I'm so relieved that the baby looks healthy.  He/she was moving constantly, and kept putting his/her hands in front of his/her face.  We got a few good pictures of the face, though.  I'm amazed at how the baby looks so much like a little baby (well, duh!).  Probably my favorite part was when she showed us the baby's 4 chambers of the heart.  That was so cool!  The chambers were moving in unison and it blew me away.

So, by now the baby is the size of an heirloom tomato (though ours is measuring on the HIGH end of that spectrum).  He/she can probably hear my voice, and is growing hair on his/her head.  Harper came out with a full head of hair, so we'll see.

  • Baby's size:  the doctor said 10 ounces (a couple of ounces bigger than the book says); I didn't ask length, but the book says 6 1/2 inches

  • Cravings of the week:  pickles, salty food, green vegetables-finally, something healthy

  • Aversions:  seafood

  • How I'm feeling:  much much better-it has been nearly a week since I've thrown up!  That is a record for this pregnancy!  This is also the EXACT time that I stopped getting sick with Harper!  I'm starting to feel BIG, and my back  hurts-I have to STOP picking Harper up so much.  

  • Movement:  I feel the baby mostly in the evenings, but also during the day.  Watching the baby moved today blew me away because I didn't feel any of the movements.   I must only feel the BIG movements.  The movement is low.

  • My favorite part about this week:  our sonogram that showed us a healthy little baby.  I'm so relieved and even more excited.  It is like my heart was holding back a little until today.  Now I'm just giddy!  

  • FUN STUFF:  Now I'll start posting some fun stuff each week (like preparations, etc.).  I've been looking at baby bedding and rooms and here are my two top picks

  • 1.  This girl room from Pottery Barn Baby.  I love the blue, pink, and brown and I think this is so pretty.

    2.  This boy room from Pottery Barn baby.  I like the neutral color for the boy against the denim blue wall.  I also like the stars and natural elements.

    I also like these from Target:

    with white furniture

    or this one

    wouldn't this be pretty in an orange-pink room? 


    Sweet Dreams!
