Pregnancy - Week 19

How far along: 19 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: 22 lbs. Yes you read it correctly.
Maternity clothes: Wearing all maternity now but I think if I could get away with wearing sweats, that's all I'd be wearing!!
Stretch marks: None yet on my belly but I've noticed a few popping up on my boobs and hips.
Sleeping: Well I have good days and bad days. I'm getting up twice a night to pee and now can't get myself comfortable and support my belly.
Best moment last week: Getting to see my babies on u/s not once but twice!!!!
Symptoms: Lack of sleep, constant hunger, peeing all the time, heartburn, backache and round ligament pain still.
Food cravings: Still loving my onion soup. And still a bottomless pit.
Food aversions: Not much of anything anymore.
I miss: NOTHING!!
What I am looking forward to: Getting moved next weekend, our baby shower in a few weeks and being 20 weeks!!!
Body Changes: At this point I really don't know what with my body hasn't changed!!! I think my belly grows by the minute!! My belly button is now completely flat but hasn't popped out yet. I officially have cankles, yep you read it correctly!! Dalyn and I are in the process of moving and I've been on my feet almost non-stop this week and well its taken its toll. I noticed Wednesday night that it looked like my feet and ankles were starting to swell and sure enough. If I keep them propped up they aren't as bad but its def there.
Other Thoughts: I have been helping to finalize plans for my baby shower back home which is so exciting. I never in a million years could have imagined this time would come. I've been going to the doctor almost constantly the past three weeks it seems like. They don't know what's going on with my kidney problem but the babies are doing great. This week their movements have really picked up, well I guess I can just feel them even more now. They are some active little babies. This morning while Dalyn and I were laying in bed one of them just started kicking and rolling. Dalyn got to feel it moving for a good 2 minutes or so. I love it that he has started to be able to feel them. As I said earlier we are moving this week to a house that is more mommy and baby friendly!! Our bedrooms are going to be close, no stairs, laundry close, and no water! I feel much safer being home with them by myself in this neighborhood so I'm very ready to get settled. I think we've about settled on a nursery design but I'll let you know more about that later. We are also getting new leather furniture this week which I think will help me be more sane when messes happen on the couch. Oh, I've decided I have so many u/s pictures I'm going to have to create a photo album or scrapbook. I'm going to try and get that taken care of sometime in the coming weeks. Did you know u/s pics will fade over time?? So mom's or mommies to be out there, make sure you get to wal-mart and get a copy of those made before they are to faded.

Did you settle on bedding??? Exciting....details details details! :-)
Also, I didn't know you were moving too! We're selling and it's driving me CRAZY to not be in the house we'll be in when the babies come. But..trying to be patient and hope it sells soooooooon!

Well I thought we had but apparently we haven't :-( grrr!!

Yes we just got moved! It was and still is so stressful. I'm happy to finally be here now if I could just get the nursery going. I hope your house sells soon too, we were just renting so we didn't have to worry about that end but I know how stressful selling a house can be.
