Baby Update & Bump Photos

Happy Monday! We're 19 weeks today, so I thought it would be fun to check in with some bump photos, a little baby update, and old wives' tales for baby gender prediction!

How far along are you?
19 weeks.

How big is the baby?
Heirloom tomato or mango depending on which site you check.

How are you feeling?
I feel really great! I toss and turn a lot throughout the night and usually wake up with a sore back, but I'm feeling good for the most part!

What have you been craving?
Like I said before, I'm reaching for both sweet and salty snacks and all things that I've always loved... I'm just reaching for the sweets a little more. Trying to curb that back.

Any food aversions?
Food aversions are better. 

Any new purchases?
We bought our stroller because it was on sale, and we picked out a onesie in Charleston. I've also picked up a few gender neutral clothes (mostly sleepers) and some baby books and toys at yardsales.

Do you think you're having a boy or a girl?
I think it's a boy. I have absolutely no evidence or reasoning to back this up. Also, most of our friends have guessed boy.

Comparisons 4.5 and 17.jpg

This comparison cracks me up! When I thought I first started showing, when my friends said I was showing, and when I actually started looking pregnant.
