19 Weeks!



How far along? 19 weeks and 1 Day (almost half way there!)
Size of Baby? The size of a MANGO/between 5.5 to 6 in! 
Total weight gain/loss: up 1 pound from my last appt.!
Maternity clothes: Some.. I have on my regular blue jeans on today but during the normal week I stick to linen pants and dresses!
Stretch marks: NO! And I have been lathering up in cocoa butter day and night! 
Sleep: has been wonderful! Slept like a rock the last few days! 
Best moment this week: My sweet niece was born TODAY.. Meet Lynley Renee!! She is just an angel!

Movement: YES... lots at night when I lay flat on my back! Such an amazing feeling! 
Food cravings/aversions: OBSESSED with chips and salsa from Chili's AND chicken sandwiches from Arby's (this is the only type of meat that I am eating for now!)
Gender: Sweet Baby BOY! 
Labor signs: Nope.. hopefully not for a LONG while! 
Belly button in or out: It is in for now.. but looks kind of weird! I took my belly ring out this week so that's weird for me too! 
What I miss: NOTHING this week! 
What I am looking forward to: Going back to the Dr. on Nov. 11th! Just love hearing Baby Boy's heartbeat! 
Weekly wisdom: ALWAYS be cautious.. I had a SMALL scare this week... Woke up with SEVERE neck pain (like could not even move my neck at all) to be cautious I went to the ER to have it checked out.. after an MRI they found a slipped disc between my c5 and c6 vertebrae that was rubbing against my spinal cord! VERY scary stuff! I see a neurologist on Nov. 5th so PRAY that we get it all worked out for me and Baby Powell! 
Milestone: NO morning sickness for several days this week! WOO HOO!

I apologize for the ghetto video.. I am NEW to movie making! ;)

Happy Friday y'all and ROLLLLL TIDE ROLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

16 WEEKS/Baby Bump




How far along? 16 weeks & 4 Days 
Size of Baby? The size of a AVACADO/between 4.3 to 4.7 in! 
Total weight gain/loss: NONE as far as I know BUT I go to the Dr. Friday so we shall see! 
Maternity clothes: Still wearing lots of stretchy stuff (linen pants). I did wear jeans on Friday but felt like I couldn't breath all day. 
Stretch marks: NO! And I have been lathering up in cocoa butter day and night! 
Sleep: is a little better.. I have been using my pregnancy pillow and that seems to help some. It's still not the same sleep that I use to get before I was pregnant! 
Best moment this week: Seeing my BFF Nicole get married this weekend in Mobile and spending a little bit of time with my in-laws!
Movement: I feel like my stomach gets really hard in certain places sometimes.. no idea if that's the baby but never had that feeling before I was pregnant! 
Food cravings/aversions: still loving chips and salsa and cheesecake! I am hoping that I start to eat like a normal person soon. I would love to actually sit down and "enjoy" a meal. Right now, I just kind of "pick" at my food. I also still cannot stand any type of meat! GA-ROSS!! 
Gender: We find out FRIDAY... we are having a gender reveal party and I cannot wait to share with y'all!! :) 
Labor signs: Nope.. hopefully not for a LONG while! 
Belly button in or out: INNNN!!!! :) 
What I miss: I know this is totally selfish but I miss having a glass of wine once in a while.. we were at a wedding this weekend and it really sucks not being able to drink! 
What I am looking forward to: finding out if bay bay Powell is a GIRL or a BOY?! 
Weekly wisdom: You can enjoy "LIFE" so much better when things are marked off your to-do list! I have like 10 lists going right now between work, personal, Jennaration, planning a gender reveal AND planning my SIL's Baby Shower BUT I feel so much better at the end of the day when I get things marked off the list! 
Milestone: surviving last week while my boss was on vaca! We are a 2 person staff so I was holding down the office down all week so I am thankful that last week is OVER!
