(about) 19.5 weeks

One more week and we will have a set due date again! Then I'll know for sure how far along I am, but I think I am pretty close. Sorry it has been such a delay since the last time, I kept meaning to get on here, but just put it off. I've been feeling pretty good for the most part yet. Starting to get a little bit of heartburn here and there, but nothing too serious yet. Hopefully it stays that way!
One week from tomorrow is when we will find out the sex of the baby! I am just a little excited! :) Paul keeps asking me what I think it is, and I seriously have no idea. Some days I think for sure it's a girl, and other days I feel like it's gotta be a boy. According to a few things I've heard over the past couple weeks...

Chinese gender chart: Boy
High heartbeat: Girl
Craving sweet things: Girl

So it will be interesting to see what happens!! I don't have a preference, as long as he/she is healthy, and Paul feels the same way. On to the survey...

How far along?: About 19.5 weeks
How big is baby?: the size of a Mango :)
Weight gain?: Forgot to weigh myself this morning, so not sure. I feel bigger in the belly, so I'm sure I've gained a couple pounds!
Stretch marks?: So far so good!
Maternity clothes?: Pants, yes. Tops, a few. I'm not quite big enough to fill out a lot of the tops yet, so when I went shopping this past weekend it was sort of frustrating. Soon enough I'm sure.
Sleep?: Still good for the most part. Once in a while I wake up in the middle of the night but usually go right back to sleep.
Best moment of the week? I might have been imagining it, but I think one night I felt a little kick in my lower stomach. I had my hand on my tummy feeling my heart beat, and all of a sudden I felt a little tap on my fingers that I know wasn't my heartbeat. Paul says when he has his hand on my stomach while we are laying in bed a couple times he thought he felt the same thing.
Food cravings?: Right now all I am craving is my Grandma's chicken noodle soup with dumplings. Yummm...can't wait until Christmas Eve!
Gender?: Soon!!
Movement?: Feel him/her move usually once a day for sure, if not more. THINK I might have felt it from the outside a few days ago. (Just felt the little bugger right now too :)
Belly button?: Stretching a little, but still an innie.
What I miss?: This is kind of weird, but on my way home from my mom & dad's the other night I passed a party bus and it made me think of some fun times with our friends and kind of want a drink. It passed pretty quick though. Ha!
Labor signs?: Zippo, thank goodness.
What I'm looking forward to?: Our ultrasound next week. Not only to find out the gender, but just to see the baby moving around on the screen again. Love that!
Milestone? Possibly feeling the baby from the outside?! And being almost halfway through my pregnancy!!! Praying that the last half goes as well as the first did!!

I can definitely tell that I've grown from the last pic! After I took this I couldn't believe it because it actually looks bigger than it feels. I'm sure the fact that all I wear is sweatshirts doesn't help. And I think some days it looks bigger than other days. I'm happy that I finally look pregnant now at least. :)
