Bump Update: 19 Weeks

How far along? 19 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Around 5-6 pounds...I think I've finally hit "gaining" mode! Baby boy was around 10 ounces at our appointment last week, which was perfect.
Maternity clothes? Ok, so a few tighter things I had not tried on yet this season didn't fit so well when I tried them on the last few days. Kind of a bittersweet moment. It took until almost 20 weeks but I think it's time to do some shopping!
Stretch marks? No. Does anyone have any suggestions for me in this area? I want something that works!
Sleep: Most of the week was good! I was crazy busy this week so I think that had something to do with it. Two naps on Sunday afternoon were nice.
Best moment this week: Seeing our baby at the doctor appointment and finding out he's a boy! More importantly, everything looked healthy and I am so relieved.
Have you told family and friends: Yes, and everyone knows it's a boy!
Miss Anything? I was in a wedding this past weekend and it sure is hard to be around people drinking/relaxing all weekend. Wine or champagne would've been fun!
Movement: Yes, love it.
Food cravings: Been wanting Starbucks coffee so bad! And not having to worry about how much caffeine is in it! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: This sounds crazy but I cannot handle the smell of trash. I try not to breathe in when I am near a trashcan. Yuck.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, people are finally noticing instead of asking where the bump is! I'm starting to notice all the ways people can comment on baby bumps. It can be quite interesting!
Gender: BOY!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: So happy about this little boy and spending time with our family and friends this past week.
Looking forward to: Doing some shopping for our little man! I'm not going to go overboard but I have to go out and buy some boy things!

Other moments from this week....

{Baby boy already has some sweet clothes and blankets from his Mimi and his Aunt Steph! They were really banking on him being a boy, they brought these to the party on Thursday!}

Thank you for all of your sweet, caring comments over the last several days. They mean so, so much!

I almost forgot, Happy Halloween! We will be doing something ultra lowkey tonight- passing out candy to all the trick-or-treaters :)

aww, love the little baby outfits:) you are lucky that you haven't yet started buying maternity clothes. I swear, I feel like I'm getting big already and I'm only 9 WEEKS!! My sister has been preggo 4 times and managed to gain only 1 teeny stretch mark on her inner thigh. Her secret? Earth Mama Natural Stretch Oil. You can bet I've already purchased a few bottles:)
