Everything checked out perfectly at the doctor. The baby is measuring within one day of my due date and weighs 11oz. We told the ultrasound tech that we weren't finding out the sex, and we didn't even catch a glimpse of what it could be. It was so nice to lay on that table and get a nice, long look at the baby. Most of the ultrasounds are so quick!

We have been making some progress in the nursery. We have a built in desk in the room that we will use as a changing table. I have a dresser that Kyle painted white and I spray painted the hardware for a completely new look. And we ordered a crib! I looked at tons of cribs online and we measured upstairs and figured out that we would like it to be taller than most of the ones I pinned. So I looked more and found this lovely convertible crib at Walmart. I was a little hesitant to pull the trigger but Kyle said the good thing is that Walmart will take back a bag of chips even after you have eaten half of it. He's right, they take anything back. Plus I had a $50 giftcard so we got a great deal on it.

I can't wait to get it in the room and see how it looks. Next up is a rocker. Our nursery is pretty large so I think we will have plenty of room for all the things required to have a baby.
Now, to the bump.
how far along: 2o weeks
size of baby: 11 oz and the size of a banana
total weight gain: 10 lbs
maternity clothes: none yet, I can still easily hide the tiny bump if I want to and I just look plump in the midsection if I wear something tight. My boss was generous enough to give me 3 grocery bags full of clothes so I have a few things when it becomes time.
movement: I am starting to feel some movement! The baby is head down and I can feel some jabs and flutters.
sleep: Sleeping just as soundly as before, but if I wake up I have to pee.
cravings: Mexican food is all I want all the time! PB&J is my after dinner snack most of the time. Or a graham cracker with peanut butter on it.
symptoms: lower back pain, lots of bathroom breaks, ginormous boobs!
I bought some non-alcoholic peach sangria mix at Williams Sonoma and mix it with sparkling water as my "mocktail". That mix is so delish. It will be so delicious with some champagne this summer :)
