19 Weeks

19 Weeks: Baby O is the size of a large heirloom tomato
How far along? 19 Weeks
 Total weight gain? Up 5 pounds
Maternity clothes? Nope but I have officially started busting out of my pants.  I'm down to only 3 jeans that are still willing to button without cutting off my circulation.  I have now started using the rubberband trick and the Belly Bands most days at work.
Stretch marks? Nope- lathering on my cocoa butter
Sleep? Sleeping like a baby minus my nightly bathroom visit.
Best moment this week? 1. Halloween!  I cannot wait till next year when we have a little one to dress up and parade around. 2. Ordering our chair and crib for the nursery!!!  The chair won't be in until December but the crib should arrive in 5-10 days!
Miss anything? Nothing this week.
Movement? Still a little here and there.  They no longer feel like flutters this week, more like slight pushes or nudges.  But still nothing major and I only feel it when I'm sitting still or laying down.
Food cravings? Nothing really this week.
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing!!
Gender? We get to seal it in the envelope tomorrow morning!  Can't wait to see our little one even if I won't know if I'm looking at a he/she until Thanksgiving.
Labor Signs? No- I'd hope not!
Symptoms? Lots of back pain still and nightly heartburn. Oh the heartburn...
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody? HAPPY!!!
Looking forward to? Seeing Baby O on the sonogram tomorrow morning!!!!!!!  We haven't seen him/her since he/she was a tiny blueberry on the screen glowing like a lightning bug.  Now it will look like a real baby!  Our kid better be ready to show the goods off to the sonographer too.
Daddy moment? Almost every time I tell Trent the baby kicks he quickly puts his hand on my tummy to try and feel.  Still nothing that he can feel yet though- the nudges are so little it might be awhile before he can feel them.

For the third year in a row we went over to the Gorneys for our annual carving night.  Ashley has the majority of the pictures from that night of everyone's final products.  She should probably blog those sometime soon... her blog is slacking!  I did get pics of the glitter pumpkins that I made with J-Fe.  Jeryn and I both agree... everything is better with a little glitter :) Jeryn made the J, the heart, and the little green polka dot.  I made the H, B, and O for Harlee, Bentley, and Baby O.

My pumpkin this year thanks to Ashley's pinterest find- the crybaby. 

 Trent's masterpiece.

 The porch decor.

 The last year just the two of them... our furbabies in their costumes.  Harlee the witch and Bentley the fierce dragon.  Next year there will be 2 furbabies and a real baby to dress up and sit on the porch- can't wait!!!
Halloween tummy pic with one of my best friends, Jess.  Love that we are only a week apart and get to share in all this joy and excitement together!  They found out today that they are adding another little lady to their family... SO excited for them!  Now to find out if we're giving baby girl Carlson a future gal pal or a boyfriend :)

The rocker/glider/recliner we ordered for the nursery.  Only we chose a gray color called "gravel." It is soooo comfy I can already tell we'll be taking plenty of naps in that chair together.  I also told Trent that the new chair will be named Christian Grey (from 50 Shades of Grey for those who haven't read the books).  Trenton hasn't been too thrilled with all the one liners I'm getting off of this chair.  "I can't wait to sleep on Christian", "Trent will you be sitting on Christian?", "Christian is the total package", etc. Once Christian comes in you're welcome to come  try him out if you'd like ;)
