Ok, back to our doctor appointment. We had our gender ultrasound Thursday morning at 10 AM and we did not want to find out until our party. We had amazing ultrasound techs and they agreed to directly call our bakery with the gender so that we would have no idea! And y'all, getting to see my child on screen for 30 minutes was one of the most surreal experiences I've ever had. He wiggled all over the place and the tech got a great shot of his little face! SUCH a cool moment to experience with my husband. After the ultrasound we saw our doctor and he told us Baby Lowery was measuring perfectly! Holt weighs about 10 oz. and all the brain, heart, leg, etc measurements lined up perfectly with his due date (that's my little man!). SO blessed to have such a great report.

Alright, here we go:
How far along: 19 weeks, 2 days
Maternity clothes: Oh yeah
Stretch marks: None yet!
Sleep: Last night, I was a little too excited to sleep, but other than that it has been wonderful.
Best moment this week: Gender ultrasound and the Gender Reveal Party
Miss anything: I think I'm too excited this week to care!
Movement: Not yet, but in my ultrasound they told me I had an anterior placenta, which just means there are more layers for baby to kick through. It wouldn't be unusual for it to be another 2-3 weeks before I feel him.
Food cravings: I still love me some Chick-fil-A, but it's not as strong a craving as it was. A few times this week I craved Dr. Pepper.
Food aversions: Baked/grilled chicken
Have you started showing: Yes, but a lot of people still tell me I don't look that pregnant--which I guess is good for now cause I"m pretty sure I'll blow up like a balloon later on.
Gender prediction: ITS A BOY!
Labor signs: Nope
Belly button in/out: In
Rings on/off: On
Happy/Moody: Happy! Happy! Happy!
Looking forward to: Decorating and nesting and buying BOY stuff!!
Baby development: Holt's sensory development is exploding--it's creating areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. And he can hear my voice this week! He weighs 10 ounces and hair is also starting to sprout on his cute little head.
