19 weeks

I am 19 weeks and 1 day pregnant! I find out in 5 days what I'm having!! Bryce and I can't wait!! This whole pregnancy, I was leaning more towards boy but after my last appointment when the dr told me it looks like it will be a girl, I am now leaning more towards a girl. I hope these next 5 days go by fast!!! Baby Stringer is the size of a mango this week! I can't believe how big my baby is now! I keep thinking he/she is still small like the size of a quarter but I realize how big he/she really is when its moving around! I have really been able to feel the baby this week. I even got it on video and I am going to try to send it to Bryce so he can see. It really makes me so incredibly sad that he doesn't get to experience this with me. It's bitter sweet when I lay in my bed and watch our baby move and Bryce isn't there. I am very thankful that he will be at the birth though. That's what matters the most to me.

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along? 19 weeks and 1 day

Size of baby: Mango! About 10 inches long from head to toe and 8.5 oz

Total weight gain/loss: I'm not sure. I will find out at my appointment on Tuesday!

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. Pants are getting snug though.

Gender: Find out on Tuesday!! Cant wait!!!

Movement: Definitely feel the baby move alot more lately. Especially in the evenings.

Sleep: I sleep great!

What I miss: Hmmm... tanning and Dr. Pepper. ha!!

Cravings: Just food! I am hungry all the time now!!!

Symptoms: Don't have any right now! This has been the easiest pregnancy ever!! Now watch, next week I will experience all the side effects just because I spoke too soon!!

Best moment this week: Feeling the baby move

Ok, I need some help with baby names!! My favorite for a boy right now is Cooper. Don't have a middle name picked out but it needs to be short. Bryce likes Cooper but said he isn't sure if its his favorite.. I said, "It will grow on you". :)

I don't have a girls name picked out and don't even have a small idea of what I like. I like names that are not common but not weird either. I don't want a name that everyone else in the world has but I want it to be cute and something that will grow with the baby. I also like Hudson, Carter, Lane, and Pierce. Please Lord let me have a boy because I only have boy names picked out!!! Please leave a comment if you have any cute ideas for babies names. What are your favorite names?

I'm so glad you are doing well and the pregnancy is going ok. I have an obsession with Irish names, go figure.

Megan (my fav if you have a girl)

My favorite boy name if I had one would have been Jackson.
