How far along am I? 19 weeks
Cravings: I can always go for Papa John's pizza with garlic sauce, but that was the case before I was pregnant, too. I mean, it is so good. I have enjoyed citrusy candy much more than I did before I was pregnant (sour patch kids and starburst)
Physically: I feel great. This week was especially exhausting because of parent-teacher conferences.
Emotionally: I have had a couple of big breakdowns lately. Last week, we painted a huge portion of the inside of our house. We had lots of help, which was so nice because we got it all done in one day; however, it started off kind of rocky trying to mesh everyone's different painting styles. I couldn't handle it. Lots of tears. I remembered my husband's birthday (yay!), but we both had Bible Study the night of his birthday, his dad took him out the next evening, and by Wednesday I had completely forgotten to do anything:( Womp. Womp.
Feelings about the baby: I think I felt the baby kick this week, but it could be gas because that likes to hang around, too. Sometimes I really don't feel like I am pregnant. We have had several sonograms because of my earlier issues. Even then, the image on the screen seems like just a movie instead of something INSIDE me.
We will be going for our 20 week check-up soon and will hopefully find out the gender. I would be okay without knowing, but I think Anthony would really like to know. We have a boy and girl name both picked out but will be keeping those a secret until the baby is born.
I haven't told my students or their parents yet. (Minus the parent that the counselor shared the information with. Good grief-adults and sharing information that is not theirs to share. I could write a whole couple blog posts about that.) BUT, I won't be able to keep it a secret for much longer as my belly continues to expand. A student the other day asked if I was pregnant. I pretended not to understand what she said. Soon though, I need to have a better response than I ate a big lunch.
