So now that we know baby Bowers 2.0 is a boy, we are trying to decide on a name. The middle name will be Joseph after my Pepaw (grandfather). I really, really like the name Owen, and it's at the top of my list. Now I need to work on Owen being at the top of AJ's list...but I guess we have another 20 or so weeks to decide on a name, but hopefully we'll have something sooner. I like calling the baby by his name and not "baby".
How far along?: 19 weeks 6 days
How big is baby?: According to the APP, I'm Expecting: Started the Week 19 as the size of a Mango and am about to be a Banana.
Weight gain?: 1 this week, 16 total.
Stretch marks?: None so far
I exclusively wear maternity clothes at work, but I still wear my regular tees around the house. Thought I need to be careful and avoid looking like Where's Waldo, but I love blue and these pants are so comfortable, especially with the warmer days!
Sleep?: Sleeping well, still stomach sleeping. My arms are almost always asleep when I wake up.
Best moment?: Being in Milwaukee for the March of Dimes walk! I met some great people and surprised some pretty inspirational people.
Worst moment?: Wednesday night, as I was getting off the couch, my laptop's power cord became stuck in between the cushion and side arm. When I went to put the laptop on the end table, the cord didn't give, and the laptop fell on it's side. I tried to use my computer Thursday night, and the hard drive was not recognized. The computer told me to reseat the hard drive, which I did, but the computer still did not recognize it. I have been slack about backing up my photographs and am worried I will lose them. I dropped my computer off on Friday with a tech expert, and I hope they can at least recover my photos. Here's hoping it's the motherboard that's damaged... SO DON'T LEARN THE HARD WAY, GO BACK UP YOUR FILES RIGHT NOW! :)
Food cravings?: Besides the daily dose of pickles and cream cheese, I am on a salty kick - I want french fries. I gave in Saturday, and it was worth it.
Symptoms?: FOUR weeks of not getting sick! However, I did start getting bloody noses. I woke up on my 30th birthday to a bloody nose - I guess 30 punched me in the face. Hah.
Exercise?: I walked another 15+ miles, worked my legs several times at the gym, and continued a push up challenge this week. I also did a lot of fast walking and running in the Atlanta airport...
Movement?:I had a Doppler, and now I am selling it because baby boy kicks several times a day for a short duration.
Belly button?: Becoming flatter.
What I miss?: I never thought I would say this, but a good cup of coffee. It took me so long to like coffee that I do miss drinking it.
Labor signs?:Not yet
TMI: I pick my nose every morning on the way to work. The mucus is out of control, but at least I pick my nose under the cover of darkness.
What I'm looking forward to?: A weekend at the beach with great friends! I know, I'm always on the go, but Aidan says he has things to see and do. :)
