Almost halfway there...


Wow! 19 Weeks! According to those numbers, Jackson is a little bit ahead of schedule in the weight department. We still don't know how long he is...they said they couldn't tell on the ultrasound. This week, the baby is developing vernix to shield his skin from the amniotic fluid. I can definitely feel him growing today! I have had round ligament pain like crazy. It's real sharp pain that only lasts for a few seconds then goes away. I can always tell when Jackson is growing because I feel those pains and I get SO hungry. I have been hungry all day. It's weird...this weekend I felt like my belly went away! I looked so much smaller than I did the week before. But, I think I am back to showing today. A couple of people have actually commented that I am showing--SHOCKER! My legs, ankles, and fingers are continuing to swell. I am trying to pump the water, but it doesn't seem to be helping much. The leg cramps have gotten MUCH better since I have been taking my tums and eating ice cream. :-) I have been eating a bagel for breakfast every day---those have 40% of the daily calcium requirement for me! And my hubby is still making me chocolate milk, too. Such a good hubby. We shopped TONS this weekend. Jackson is accumulating quite the wardrobe already. Stores at Opry Mills were having 60% off sales. My favorite thing we got him was a pair of green Crocs! They are so cute! And, they were only $4.99! He is going to be STYLIN'! We started moving stuff out of the office to get it ready for the nursery transformation. The room looks so bare now. But, I can't wait to see it become a nursery. We are doing Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" theme. It will be so cute...and different! Well, I have BAD heartburn right now so I think I will go take some Tums. 20 weeks is just around the corner!!!
