How far along? 19 weeks
Baby is now the size of: Mango (I love mangos)
Gender: A GIRL
Movement: YES! I am absolutely obsessed when she is moving around. It is the best feeling on the planet! Just yesterday I was able to see the movement from outside my belly. I’ve never felt movement so powerful before and I am in pure bliss every time she maneuvers.
Food cravings: This week I was really craving one of those polish sausages you buy from the stands. This wasn’t an option so off to the grocery store I went and got sausages that Beau cooked up for us. Twice this week hehe.
Food Aversion: For some reason there were a couple nights this week where I couldn’t hold down my dinner. I think it may have been because of the chicken breasts nearby.
Favorite meal this week: Creme brûlée happened this week! We even had a torch to crisp up the BEST part (top sugar layer).
Purchases: I actually can’t think of anything I’ve bought this week but my MIL gave me the most adorable flamingo onesie. The pink colour of the flamingos is so perfect.
Emotional moment this week: It is quite important for me to keep our little girl’s potential name a secret but we weren’t vocal enough about this personal choice with friends and family (our fault). So one of the “on the list” names (my favourite one) was mentioned at a gathering. Although her name has not been written in pen, I don’t want any hints floating around.
Best moment this week: The kicks/movement of course. And the fact that is rained all weekend so I was able to organize/purge and clean like a maniac. Nursery will be underway soon enough and we are just in the middle of planning. I’ll be sure to share the journey with you.
Pregnancy Perks: My nails have never been so long and strong!
