I came down with (another) head cold yesterday. I'm not even going to waste time complaining about it because we all know colds suck. This could be a combination of allergies, sinus issues, who knows... I slept sitting up last night and did get some sleep, but was up every few hours. I'm still able to function just fine at work though and actually being up and about makes me feel better rather than just lying around. I started the day with Miso soup broth this morning. I think I will continue to do that all week. My stomach felt really good after having it too.
I'm in love with this cookbook... Both of the soup recipes came from it as well as my favorite pancake recipe which I tend to make every weekend.
Total Weight Gain: 10 pounds as of my 19 week appointment!

Sleep: I've been sleeping, but waking up sporadically trying to get comfortable. I know I'm supposed to sleep on my side, but I still naturally role over on my back in the night. I'll then wake up and role myself back over to my side.
Best Moment this week: Going to our 19 week sonogram and finding out we are HAVING A BOY!!! He was so stubborn at first and wouldn't let us see for a while what gender he was. We were patient though and eventually we found out! Such happiness. Ironically, right as I was leaving work to go to the appointment, I imagined a little boy. And that morning I had said to my dog, Jax, "what if there is another little boy in this house?" I would have been happy either way, but I'm so excited about our little baby boy!
It was the absolute best thing getting to see our baby again up on the screen. We hadn't done a sonogram since 7 weeks. Seeing all the body parts and watching him move was so cute. He's an active little guy already. Look at those toes!

There you have it - 19 weeks and a baby boy!!!! I love him so much already.
