Jesse is hoping to get off early so he can work late tomorrow and we were talking about making a trip to the mall since our washing machine has been leaving grease stains on all his shirts and he is running out of shirts to wear - but he promised someone from church he would help them move this afternoon/evening so I don't know if we're going to do that. *Glower* Sometimes I wish I wasn't married to such a nice, helpful person- but then I remember that I benefit from that helpfulness every day, so I should definitely not complain.
As far as being 19 weeks, I feel like I really started showing in the last week; no more "fat" look - the baby is poking out in front rather than just slightly bulging. Pretty soon it will be noticeable even with loose fitting tops, but it's especially obvious if I'm wearing one of my favorite stretchy tops that gathers on each side of the abdomen. Baby is now "the size of an heirloom tomato" - about 8 1/2 oz and 6 inches from head to bottom, according to www.babycenter.com. Their picture drawing of baby at this week makes me laugh - so much more crowded looking than last week!
I have been having more moments where I think "Yeah, that is probably the baby moving" but still nothing definite, which may be a few weeks off yet. I can't believe we are almost halfway there! Next week marks the halfway point and is the week of our ultrasound; I am getting very impatient and am frequently praying that baby will be cooperative so we can find out the gender. We had settled on a couple of names but then I was having second thoughts on the girl name until Saturday night when I realized that I really do love it and now we are final (I hope... maybe things will change but I don't think so - usually when we make decisions, we stick to them). I can't wait to find out whether we will be using the boy name or the girl name... but will be keeping them a secret for 5 months more, much to my mother's chagrin. ;)
