19 weeks!

Dress: Motherhood | Cardigan: The Limited

I love, love, love that dress!  I just got it for a very special party I had on Saturday night {more to come on this} and I wasn't sure about it at first... I mean, look at all those STRIPES!  But I bought it anyway and I'm so glad I did!  Everyone loved it and it was SUPER comfy. Yay!

And can we talk about this belleh for a second?  It's definitely growing again and I can feel it stretching up above my belly button now. Lovely.  And I may or may not have been the same size as my good friend Reenie {Hi Reen} who is 35 weeks and due in May.  Just maybe.

So you want to hear something funny?  While at my u/s last week, the doctor at MFM was asking about how big my previous 2 babies were.  As we were talking about my 2 monstrosities {reminder: Carter was 9lbs 5oz born at 38w0d and Brynn was 9lbs 3oz born at 39w0d...my little peanut} he started talking about how he wanted to monitor me every 6 weeks due to my blood pressure and previous pre-e.  He said that it's very rare to have big babies and high blood pressure since blood pressure that is high restricts blood flow {and oxygen levels/food} to the placenta causing low birth weight.  

So my high blood pressure?  Kept my babies smaller than they would have been.

Um, can you imagine? :::dies:::

Pregnancy: 19 weeks

Weight Gain: 4 pounds {sure to change this Friday!}

Sleep: My belly is starting to hurt when I sleep... I think it's time to bust out my body pillow so that I can rest this big ol' thing on something.  I kept waking up on Saturday night completely uncomfortable! {But this could have something to do with the amount of food I ate at dinner that night!}

Gender: We're team green, so we'll find out in September!

Names: Reid Joseph or Emerson Mae {see the name post here!}

Feeling: Besides starting to feel a little uncomfortable sleeping, I feel really great.  Swelling has started though, and I know it's only going to get worse from here.

Health: Just a little swelling and awful acid reflux.  Both expected.

Movement: Getting stronger in there!  I love it {for now ;}

Belly: Here's a full belleh shot... love this dress!  My favorite part of it is that it goes under my belly too {and not just straight down} so that I didn't look like I was wearing a circus tent.  WOOT.

For comparison, here's my 19w bump with Brynnie girl!  I don't know... I think this baby belly is bigger than it was with Brynn!  Thoughts?
Next Appointment: OB: This Friday, April 27th at 19w5d | Ultrasound: Friday, May 25th at 23w5d
