19 Week Pregnancy Update

19 Week Pregnancy UpdateMan oh man what a crazy week. I have felt pretty ucky on some days so don’t mind the picture, I am still in my pj’s! My belly is finally popping out on the top pretty good. That is the one thing I have really began to notice. It was like overnight my belly was just growing and growing! I have noticed when I feel my tummy is getting bigger I tend to get a bit more nauseous!

Just so you know, as for baby names, we are still working on what we will pick! When we can finally agree and feel for sure on the name, I will be sure to share the fun news with you guys! Enough jabber, here is my 19 week pregnancy update!

Size of Baby: Baby is size of a heirloom tomato!  Baby is developing specialized areas in the brain are being designated for smell, taste, hearing, vision and touch! Motor neurons are continuing to develop in the baby’s brain!

Movement: I feel the baby move everyday now. It is really special, I have really been loving it. It really makes it real, a constant reminder that there is a baby moving around in there saying I am here!

Body and Changes: Really beginning to grow a lot more in my belly and other area’s of course, haha! I am just shocked at how fast my belly is starting to grow! I read that this is the time the baby really amps up and grows a lot faster, and it says to be prepared for your belly to grow, and they weren’t lying!

Sleep: Been struggling with sleeping. I have been up a lot through the night. I either can’t sleep or I just don’t feel that good. So I have been watching a lot of tv at night, messing on pregnancy app and such. I can normally get back to sleep around 5 and sleep till about 7:30.

Emotions: Holy Moly, I cry so easily! I am noticing I get really emotional for no reason at times. Sometimes I just want to cry for no reason, but I hear so many women talk about this, and I am really experiencing this! I do notice I can get frustrated at times as well. I have heightened emotions all around!

Morning Sickness: Still struggling with this one. Some days are pretty good and other days I have really bad days. Past few days I have been pretty sick, I am hoping I feel better soon and get some energy back!

candy coated sunflower seeds Cravings: I have been eating a lot of Chocolate Candy Coated Sunflower Seeds for snacks. They are so good. I also am back to wanting cheese a lot, protein, Cheetos, watermelon, cherries, and ice cream. A good mix of stuff. It is weird today I am craving ramen noodles, I haven’t wanted those in forever.

What I Miss: Being able to move freely around. I have noticed I hurt more and bending over and such I will get stretching pains or my belly feels tight, so I have to re-adjust!

What I Am Looking Forward To: Seeing our baby for the first time in the sonogram! I just want to see our baby, see he/she is healthy and all is okay!

Next Doctor Appointment: June 8th, we have a sonogram and then a doctors appointment right after.

3 Places I Want to Visit One Day

 

LandscapeI am not a person who wants to travel the whole world! I like to be at home and I am content with that. But, there are a few places I would like to go visit in my lifetime! I thought I would share the 3 places I want to visit one day!  Maybe in a few years once the baby gets older, we can take a nice little road trip!

Alaska: I have always wanted to go to Alaska! It looks like such a beautiful place. We watch a lot of shows that are in Alaska and it makes me want to go that much more. I thought at one time it would be fun to live there but I am not big on cold, and I would be scared of bears and such living in the back yard. Plus some places don’t have running water and such, and that is a must for me! So I decided it would be fun to visit one day.

Colorado: It is crazy, we don’t live that far from Colorado, and yet I have never been. I think it looks like such a beautiful state, and lots of great things to go and do. My husband went to college in Colorado and always talks so good about the state, and it makes me really want to go visit! I love the mountains, they look stunning in pictures! We live in Kansas, so things are very flat here!

Oregon: I am not sure why I want to visit Oregon, but ever since I was a teenager I thought it would be a neat place to visit! It sounds like a really neat place, and from pictures it is yet another stunning place. I have a friend who lived there and always says how it is a place to visit for sure, if you love outdoors!

 

Plus before you go travel the globe, check out these weird traffic laws! I had no idea some of these existed, lots of crazy ones!

Michael W. Smith released his newest album “SOVEREIGN”

If you can’t view video above, watch on You Tube!

Quote from Video: 

“I’m really passionate about the song SKY SPILLS OVER.  It was fun creating it in the studio and I’ve been overwhelmed at the response it gets when we perform it live every night.  My son Ryan is a really talented filmmaker so I always enjoy working with him on a project.  But what made this project even more special was that 3 of my own grandkids were in the video.  This video was a lot of fun to make.  I hope people enjoy it!”

SovereignI have been a fan of Michael W. Smith for years and years, he is a Christian singer that has a stunning voice! It is so soft yet so powerful! He has a new album out called Sovereign, you can buy it now on CD or digital like iTunes!  I just wanted to help raise awareness for all of you who might be fans of his, or enjoy Christian Music!

I can’t wait to listen to all the songs on this album, I love all his other songs!

A Few Things to Help You When Baby Arrives – Advice I Was Given!

baby

As most of you know we are expecting in October! I have been getting a lot of advice as to what to expect or things to help you when baby arrives. I thought I would share some of the tips I have been told from moms with you all, in case you are like me and expecting your first and not sure what all to expect once the baby arrives!

Freezer Meals: This is a big one, I hear a lot. When you have a newborn you spend a ton of time feeding, changing and taking care of the baby. Thinking about cooking can be the last thing you want to do. I am gonna make up some lasagna’s, breakfast burritos, banana bread and such to have that I can toss in oven for dinners and breakfast!

Let Family Stay With You To Help At First: I am going to have some family members take turns coming over for the day to help me around the house. My sister, Felicia, and Adam’s Mom are really wanting to come take time to help and of course love on baby Apley! They can help watch baby while I take a shower, or heat up dinner. If I am to tired I know they will help do dishes or household chores that are needed like laundry and such. I am very thankful to have them! I will also have some other visitors come and stay to meet the baby and spend time with us!

Don’t Be A Hero: Here is another one I hear over and over again. Recovering from having a baby is pretty rough I hear, and then getting up and doing feedings, changing diapers and such can really wear you down. If you don’t have anyone around, I have been told to let the house be. If you can catch a nap when the baby sleeps, then do it. You need to get as much rest as you can, cause you have to take care of yourself! So let the laundry go a day, or stay in pj’s, don’t over do it, or feel you have to do everything. Rest if you need it.

Trust Your Gut: My sister just had a newborn, and one night she got really sick. Felicia new she needed to take her in to the ER, her fever was going up and up. She always tells me to trust my gut. You are the mom and if you don’t feel right about something, trust your feelings. Just be aware of how you feel. If you feel something is off with you from healing up, or the baby, go to the doctor just to be sure.

Enjoy Each Moment: Babies grow up so fast, and to enjoy every moment! Your baby is only a newborn for a few months, and make sure to enjoy those moments, don’t wish for the day they sleep through the night. Each moment is precious and special, and you will miss those moments when they are gone!

Those are just a few of the things people have been telling me. If you have children, what is a tip that you could recommend to me and other first time moms?!
