Bumpdate 19 Weeks + Gender Reveal!

How far along: 19 weeks 2 days. I can't believe next week is already the half way mark!

Baby Size: A mango - 5.98 inches and 8.50 ounces

Weight gain: Not sure. At my last 16 week appointment in December I had gained 3 lbs

Maternity clothes: Nothing yet

Stretch marks: Nope
Sleep: Sleep is still great, can't wait for bed each night. 
Gender: A sweet baby boy! Can't say we were surprised one bit, everyone in his family has boys. I can't wait to meet our sweet little Bennett Hayes in June <3

Movement: Yes, I started feeling him around week 17 and feel him daily now. Sometimes it's a pretty big movement, typically just little ones. Dustin actually got to feel him the end of week 18, which was awesome! He'd been waiting, it was a neat moment. 

Best moment this week:  We busted out the fetal doppler Sunday night and listened to Bennett's heartbeat for a while. 

Looking forward to: Next week is our big anatomy scan. Looking forward to seeing him again and getting a little extra gender confirmation ;) 

Food cravings: I am definitely craving more spicy things than usual, but I still crave my sweets too. I could probably live on cereal. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, nothing really has this whole pregnancy 
Labor Signs: Ha no..
What I miss: Honestly, if I had to pick something it'd be a cold turkey sandwich. I can't really say I miss anything though.  
Symptoms: Besides my belly starting to grow a little and having to pee all the time, nothing. 
Nursery: Dustin put the crib together this last weekend. We're in full nursery planning mode. If I had to explain our theme it would be Rustic antique with navy & gray. This is kind of my inspiration...

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Mood: I feel pretty good, I can't really say I've been moody or anything..
