Pregnancy: Week 19

Hello Week 19! The question I get the most right now is "what are you having?" followed by "but what do you want?" I wrote a fun post about other questions pregnant women get and the answers I wish I could give. The fact is that I still haven't had my mid-pregnancy ultrasound so we don't know the gender of the baby yet. All I know is that I am literally dreaming about meeting this amazing child I am carrying. Here are the latest news since my Week 14 Pregnancy update:
• I'm getting smarter and backing away before people touch my belly. I hope to keep this up for the rest of this pregnancy.
• I'm starting to show "foreal." Some women at my church keep telling they thought I just got fat. Cruel but I hear it every other Sunday. I usually release a fake laugh and leave.

• Nose bleeds on top of a cold was no fun. The humidifier has been my BFF lately. I've had two colds thus far during this trimester. The good news is they keep getting shorter and shorter (from 3 weeks to 1 week).
• "Dread" is another "poopy" part of my pregnancy. I dread going to the store with 3 kids. I dread taking 3 kids to the doctor. I need to do some serious refocusing and planning as well as some major organization and a good attitude consistently. I know it's been done before but my mom never took the 5 of us grocery shopping with her and my dad til we could help carry the stuff home (we took the bus sometimes). 
Extra Info:
As soon as we find out the gender it'll be so much easier to come up with a name! It usually takes us 9 months... My next pregnancy update should be the gender reveal. How exciting is that? Thanks for reading!
