Weekend Recap & 19 Week Bump-date

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  If it was like mine, it ended entirely too quickly! :(  Friday we made dinner at the house and vegged out on the couch.  Saturday the husband had to work (boo), so I went and got one of these here.  It was fabulous!  However, I was completely unaware that deep tissure massages are a BIG no no when you're pregnant, so I was just a little disappointed because I really wanted Pam (she was fabulous - I highly recommend her) to get all of the knots out of my back.  Eventhough, that didn't happen it was a great experience and was super relaxing!

Sunday we went to the pool with the cutest niece in the world and her mommy and daddy.  I just love watching her play in the pool - it makes my day!  Afterwards, the husband had a kickball game so I went to be a cheerleader and socialize.  All in all, it was a pretty good laid back weekend - which was much appreciated after last weekend's whirlwind of activity!

How far along:  19 weeks

Maternity Clothes:  Yup!  I bought a bunch more stuff last week at Kohl's.  FYI - they have a pretty good selection of Motherhood Maternity stuff for a lot less than in the actual Motherhood Maternity store (although you'll actually have to go to the store because their online selection is not that great).

Sleep: I'm still not sleeping well - I think it's time to break down and invest in a body pillow.

Best Moment of the Week:  Finding out that we're having a little girl!!!  And on Saturday (during my massage) I definitely felt baby girl move 3 times!  YAY!

Food Cravings:  I think I'm over this now.  Thank goodness!
Gender:  It's a GIRL!!!

What I'm looking forward to:  Deciding on a name (I think we're about 95% sure at this point) definitely.

Total weight gain:  8 lbs

That's all I've got for now, so see you all tomorrow!  Have a great night!

You have only gained 8lbs! That is great! I am using that same body pillow now, I borrowed from my SIL and I have really enjoyed it these last few weeks!

Thanks, lady, but I must admit that I gained 6 of those in the last month alone so I'm a little concerned that I may need to start being more careful about what I eat! :) I think I'm gonna just run with it though at least until the next appointment and then make the final decision! :)
