19 weeks.

Almost to the half way mark - and I thought I could make it through the season without getting sick! I have been laying low with an upper respiratory infection this past week and with the addition of asthma, it has been a tough week for breathing. Oh the joys. Every time I feel like laying down and feeling bad for myself, I try to think about how much worse it could be. This pregnancy is so much easier than my pregnancy with Luke, and I am hoping that is not an indication of a difficult baby! After having Aiden 4.5 years ago, I feel like I could conquer any child - craziness.

19 weeks

How far along: 18 weeks 
Total weight gain: +2 officially 
Baby is the size of a: Mango
Maternity clothes: Yes, and I feel so much more comfortable than I did when squeezing into my non-maternity clothes. 
Stretch marks: Not yet
Sleep: Not so good. Between the running nose, coughing, extremely sore throat, it hasn't been the best week for sleeping. 
Best moment of this week: Getting the new car seat. We got Aiden's infant seat in 2010 and it will expire in June 2015, so we needed a new one. This is the one we got, but in purple. That is really the only "big" purchase we needed to buy. We have the double stroller, single jogger, etc. I also did some work in the nursery before I got sick, and love how that turned out. 
Movement: I have been in so much pain this week from the URI that I haven't felt her move as much as usual. Also, the anterior placenta doesn't do me any favors. 
Food cravings: I haven't been hungry all week. I do think it is funny how with Aiden all I wanted were grilled veggies, with Luke all I wanted was brownies, and there is nothing that I crave with this baby! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Coughing has made me throw up a few times
Aches or pains: Lots, I get braxton hicks from all the coughing fits.  
Have you started to show yet: Yes 
Gender: GIRL!! 
Labor signs: No.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
What are you dreaming about: Nothing memorable this week. 
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy.
Looking forward to: Painting the crib as soon as I can breath again.

The crib I fully intend on finishing at some point, it was $10! 

I think that is all for this week!
