19 Week Update

Just got back from Florida this weekend! Had a great time but it was quite different being on vacation while I was pregnant. I kept worrying about what things I could do and could not do - what seafood is "ok", can I lay out, can I go jet skiing, etc... I also wore a maternity swimsuit instead of my regular suit. I asked Ben how I could go from being a normal 20-something, to being a dorky mom in what seemed like a day...

None the less, we had a blast! I don't know if it was all the food we were eating on the trip, or if it's the actual baby, but my belly seemed to grow a ton while we were gone! And the coolest thing- my stomach actually is starting to feel hard. I still don't know if you'd recognize me as a "pregnant lady" on the street, if you didn't know any better, but I am definitely feeling pregnant more and more each day.

We go to get our second ultrasound on Tuesday!! I am so excited to see little Olive swimming around, and hopefully to see if we are having a boy or a girl. I'm also excited just to see how Olive is doing, it's been about 7 weeks since my last doctor appointment which has made me pretty antsy about how the babe is doing health-wise. I haven't "felt" Olive move yet - people keep asking, and I keep focusing on trying to feel, but I can't really say that I have felt anything definite yet. I'm hoping to ask the doctor about that.


  1. i think the maternity suit is really cute. and i can't wait to hear how the appointment goes on tuesday!

  2. Jess you're an adorable pregnant lady ;) I hope the Babymoon was a blast!!!

  3. Hey! You look so great!! Can't wait to hear what you are having!!!
