Bump-date, Week 19


We have made it to week 19!

Baby Jimenez is still treating me very well. I was able to stay very active on our cruise (see post here), and have had very minimal sickness due to pregnancy. In fact, my pregnancy sickness is usually just heartburn.

I did pick up a sore throat and some post nasal drip on the cruise, I talked it over with my doctor today and was given some suggestions on natrual things to try as well as a recommendation of a medication to use in case I don't get better.

So, week 19!

Today was supposed to be the day that we found out he or she ... but there was a miscommunication when I made my appointment and well. ... we didn't get to see baby Jimenez today.  I will call tomorrow and make the appointment for the full anatomy ultrasound.

Cravings.

I'm pretty sure the closest thing to a craving I've had is peanut putter. I'm obsessed! Seriously, I hope Baby Jimenez isn't allergic because of me. ...

Weight Gain.

I lost 10-11 pounds during my first trimester, and have been on an uphill battle trying to stablelize my weight. As of today, I am almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight.

Exercise.
Exercise is getting so much easier. I'm not as tired, and I enjoy being active. I also feel the "flutters" after exercise, so it's a huge motivator for me!

Tower of Terror.
In February when I registered for Tower of Terror, I was rediculously excited! As you know, life has changed drastically since then and I've had to really think long and hard about that 10-miler. Currently, I am still registered. However, I talked it over with my doctor. Since it has been SOOO hot outside, I haven't been able to train properly.  So, after talking it over with my doctor we came to the conclusion that eventhough  I am capable and healthy enough to complete the 10-miler, I probably wouldn't fully enjoy the run. So, Baby Jimenez - you're about to get another Disney Vacation from Mom & Dad. Any family members want to join us, and watch a 10 month old while her parents race through Hollywood Studios?

Question: When did you or do you feel the "flutters"?
