How far along: This is the last day of my 19th week.
Baby size: About the size of an heirloom tomato (6 inches from head to rump, 8 1/2 ounces).
Must have items: Tylenol, since I’ve been getting headaches almost every day. Most of the time I don’t even take it but I always have it with me just in case I can’t bear waiting for my extra water intake to kick in.
Sleep: It’s been pretty good although the vivid pregnancy dreams have started. Always a trip.
Cravings: Mexican and sweets.
Baby movement: Kicking up a storm some days and pretty chill other days this week.
Gender: Still a girl, I assume.
Favorite moment: My favorite moment this week involves Rowan. She wanted to wear a pretty crazy outfit to school yesterday and though I try to let her be herself and creative with her clothes, some outfits are just a hard no. I told her she only had to change her shirt but she refused. She stormed off into her room and when she came back she was holding out one of her necklaces with a charm on the end towards me, swinging it back and forth, saying “mama you will let me wear this shirt, you will let me wear this shirt!” She was legit trying to hypnotize me! I laughed until I cried.
She still changed the shirt.
Least favorite moment: My least favorite moment was the day that the baby kicked the least. I still felt her but barely and the kicks were spread out so I got a little paranoid all throughout the day. Since then she’s been moving a lot more though, especially today.
