Bump Update- Week 19

Well..looks like I have missed a few weeks but honestly I think that might be better, because things don't change all that much week to week!
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 19 weeks, as of Friday (March 23)- So, tomorrow will be 20 weeks!
Size of baby: 6.0 inches, 8.5 oz, a heirloom tomato
Maternity Clothes: Yes! Loving maternity jeans and a lot of shirts my sister in law gave me! :) I can still wear some normal shirts but I am weird about liking my shirts long and my bump is causing most normal shirts to be a bit short for my liking.
Gender: BOY! We found out last Tuesday and are overjoyed! It is so nice to be able to say HE instead of "it" haha. It makes it all a bit more realistic and we are so excited to meet our sweet boy. The name situation is still being debated.. I guess we have yet to find THE name. We have plenty of time though!
Movement: Yes!That sweet boy loves to move around in the afternoons and evenings. It seems like just when I am getting a little nervous I haven't felt him, he starts moving around to let me know every things ok :) Still can't feel it from the outside- although Drew tries daily- hopefully soon though!
Sleep: I went on a women's retreat at my church this weekend and didn't get as much sleep as I normally do, so I guess the past few days I have been catching up. It seems like when my head hits the pillow I am OUT. Of course, I wake up to pee 2 times at least.. but I immediately fall back asleep!
What I miss: I don't miss too much at this point but I am sure that will start to change more as my belly grows even more! People are saying "aww look at your little baby bump" and I am thinking... this is little?! Haha I know it is going to get MUCH bigger but it is still weird when you start to feel your weight shift forward when you walk! I am very thankful to have such an easy pregnancy so far though :) Praise the Lord!
Cravings: Chick-Fil-A still always sounds great.. STILL. ha! Popsicles, ice cream :)
Symptoms: It seems I am having to pee more often during the day... and I know that is only going to get worse-oh and my belly button is getting verryy shallow! I am able to clean it really well, haha! Overall we are thrilled to know he's a BOY and reading to start planning everything out for him! Such an exciting time!
