19 Weeks

19 Weeks: Baby O2 is the size of a large heirloom tomato.
This week the baby's sensory development is exploding and he/she may be able to hear us now!  The arms and legs are in the right proportion with the rest of the body. The kidneys are continuing to produce urine and the baby's hair is sprouting. The waxy coating on the skin, the vernix caseosa, is forming on the skin to prevent the baby getting "prune-y."
How far along? 19 Weeks
Total weight gain? Up 7 pounds
Maternity clothes? Nope, wearing all my normal jeans and I'm able to button them.  My dress pants for work though have to have the rubberband in order for them to fit. 
Stretch marks? Nope- lathering on my cocoa butter
Sleep? Sleeping like a baby the whole night- not even waking up for bathroom breaks.
Best moment this week? Having Monday off with Labor Day weekend- we needed a nice short 4 day week!  And we got our first small house project done- building the Phase 1 stage of Trent's closet so I could get all his stuff out of my closet.
Miss anything? Nothing this week.
Movement? Lots of little kicks and flips.
Food cravings? Mashed potatoes so we hit up the Olpe Chicken House :)
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing!!
Gender? Don't know and we won't know until Baby O2's birthday!
Labor Signs? No- I'd hope not!
Symptoms? Other than my expanding waistline and the kicks I don't even feel pregnant.  Very thankful to feel so awesome, especially with chasing a 17 month old around!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off?  They're off :( But not because they don't fit!  I sent them back with Bob and Lora so the jewelers could make my anniversary band Trent surprised me with this year for our anniversary.  Can't wait to see them done in 4-6 weeks.
Happy or moody? So so happy!
Looking forward to? Getting lots done at the house this coming weekend since it's our only free weekend at home this month! Some of the plans: picking up the barn wood for the nursery, clearing out the nursery of all the random stuff that got put there during the move, and buying all our fencing material for the back-backyard.  The backyard around the pool is fenced but we want everything fenced for the dogs and the kids.
Daddy moment: Love my handyman who is busy scheming up big plans with me for our house!
Big brother Cole moment: Poor Cole had his first ER visit on Saturday night from 12-3 am.  He had been running a low fever all day which we thought was just teething since he has 4 coming in at once.  But when we checked on him at midnight for his scheduled dose of Tylenol he was burning up at 104 degrees and then started throwing up.  We threw him in the car and raced to the ER.  They said that he has croup but we 100% do not agree.  We called Dr. Rita and she didn't agree either so we are going to KC tomorrow to see her and see what she says.
