19 Weeks

How far along?  19 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? Up 4lbs 
Maternity clothes? All bottoms, there are a few tops I can still get away with 
Stretch marks? No, but I have these weird red, flat, not itchy spots on my stomach, arms and shoulders and it's weird.  I thought it was the beginning of stretch marks, but google said no, so I'm going with that.  
Sleep? It's starting to get uncomfortable and it's still so early!
Best moment last week? My cousin's Christmas party.  Since we all have our own families now and our own set of in laws, we can't all be together for Christmas.  So we got together this weekend for a Christmas brunch with all most of our kids.  So nice to be with family. 
Movement? Lots of movement lately, especially late at night or after I drink something cold.
Food cravings? Cherry coke, which is bizarre to me since I never drink soda.  This is one I won't be indulging.
Food aversions?  chicken and onions 
Gender? Team Green
Labor signs? I've actually been having some pretty nasty BH's.  I'm gonna mention it to my OB at my next appointment.  They've been pretty uncomfortable and frequent although untimeable.  I remember them with Isabella, but it was much much later.  
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: Happy hours with my work friends.
What I am looking forward to: Painting the nursery.  That's a positive of team green, I can paint the nursery as early as I want.  I just can't quite decorate it yet since I have no idea what direction I want to go in. 
Milestones: Almost halfway done!

There I am with my 19 week bump.  I'm carrying high, but not quite as high with Isabella.  I think because I have a short torso, it always just looks really high.

Hey Melissa! I am pregnant with Baby #2 right now, and I have had the same exact thing with the really bad BH really early on. They are waaay different than the ones I had with my son. It freaked me out at first, but my OB keeps insisting that it is normal. She claimed that some pregnancies you just have more contractions than others. At first it seemed that I would get them if I remotely overdid it or was on my feet too long, but then I started getting them even if I had been resting for a long time. Never hurts to bring it up in your appointment though! Hope you are doing well.

Wow, you're almost half way there!! YAY!! Watch those bumps... I had them with my first pregnancy and they turned out to be PUPPPS - it was miserable but they can give you medicine to help.

My BH were also worse with my second pregnancy - but I also ended up on bedrest both times. Definitely mention it to your doctor but I think it's pretty normal. (Not that I have a CLUE what normal pregnancy looks like! lol)

Take care!!
