19 Weeks

How far along: 19 weeks, 1 day
Total weight gain: I haven't weighed myself since our last appointment two weeks ago because our scale is spastic but last I knew it was 7 pounds. 
Maternity clothes? Full on maternity! I had three packages arrive on Friday of maternity clothes! Birthday gift cards paid off! I was able to get jeans, new pj pants from GapBody that are by far my most favorite thing to wear as soon as I get home, and a few shirts from Gap as well. I had to return a pair of work pants I tried from A Pea in a Pod that were way too flesh colored for my liking :) Ronnie said I blended in with the pants!
Stretch marks? Still nothing but I'm starting to get an itchy belly which I've read is really common.  
Sleep: Still my favorite thing to do on the weekends! My energy levels are much better than during the first trimester but I still feel like I need 10 plus hours of sleep a night which isn't always possible. I can definitely feel it the next day if I don't get to bed early enough. My nausea is much worse and I overall feel off.
Best moment this week: My Dad and Stepmom came back in town after being gone for most of the summer. We got to have dinner with them and great conversation.
Miss anything? Nothing new stands out this week other than my normal clothes and normal appetite.
Movement: I still haven't felt any flutters but I'm hopeful it will start soon.   
Food cravings: Lots and lots of water. Still feeling hungry without really know what I want to eat. 
Gender:  We find out TODAY!!
Labor Signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Nausea seems to be the only consistent symptom. Lately I have been noticing I can hear my heartbeat in my left ear a lot. I was reading about it and it's related to the increase of blood in my body. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender today! We can't wait to tell our friends and family.
