How far along: 19 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: ~ 7 lbs - the Cookie Exchange I went to yesterday did not help!
Maternity clothes: Last time I'm posting this because from here on out, it's maternity all the way.
Sleep: Sleep is ok.  Sleep would be better if Matthew would stop getting up at 2am. 
Best moment this week: BABY KICKS! Last night Chris even felt a kick.  You have absolutely no idea how much you need to feel that baby when you're pregnant. 
Movement: Oh yeah.  It's not all the time on the outside, but I felt her dancing around all night last night and I feel her a lot when I'm sitting at my desk at work.  This just started about 3-4 days ago, but I'm so happy it has finally started.
Food cravings: I've reached the - I'LL EAT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING phase.   
Labor Signs: nope.
Belly Button in or out: innie.
What I miss: Wine to help me relax after a stressful day! - still true
What I am looking forward to: The holidays and then getting started on the nursery after the holidays are over.
Weekly Wisdom: Relax and Enjoy! - I'm working on it! - still working on it.

So next week is my official anatomy scan.  We've already seen most of the body parts because of my other scan earlier. 

Things that are worrying me these days:

So I'm not 100% sure on any of this, but I'm pretty sure I have an anterior placenta because I think they said that.  This causes me concern because I hear that it can make the c-section complicated. That is very scary to me.  I've read it can cause extra bleeding and just make things harder in general.

Subchorionic Hematoma - It's still there.  Why are you still there? GO AWAY! I'm praying that by my next scan it's gone, but what if it's not.  Can it cause issues?

And this isn't a worry, but I'm already anxious about getting everything ready.  We've got 140 days until little lady comes. I have so many clothes that need to be organized, we have to move furniture, buy furniture, get all the baby stuff out and cleaned. And don't even get me started on a name.

All in all, since feeling kicks I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. 

At some point I'll take a belly picture.......not today. :)

Until Next time....
