19 Weeks // Gender Reveal this Week!

How far along? 19 Weeks {first 19 week update}
Baby Size: A mango
Total weight gain/loss: 5+ pounds...I've not been paying as close attention this time.
Maternity clothes? Just more maxi dresses.  My jeans officially don't zip or button, but the belly band does wonders!
Stretch marks? Good for now.
Sleep: A pillow is officially between my legs for extra back support.  But still sleeping really hard.  And having lots of crazy dreams!
Best moment this week: My work promotion!  ;)  And celebrating with my sis-in-law.
Miss Anything? Caffeine at any time.  I've been majorly craving diet coke/pepsi this time around {I know...not great}.
Movement: Lots of kicks, especially in the evening.  I'm even feeling it from the outside.  Just ready for Ryan to feel them now.
Food cravings: OMG, fried chicken thanks to Natalie's Charleston post!  I have may have tried to replicate the Boxcar chicken sandwich last night.  YUM!!!
Gender prediction: We officially find out today!!
Looking forward to: Seeing my baby on the U/S today!!
Differences this time around: I feel like I'm in the groove now...it's all very familiar between the kicks, the purple splotches I get on my chest {happened with Ethan too}, and just the way I'm carrying.  Definitely starting to feel the pangs of excitement about what this next baby will bring to our lives!
