19 Weeks

How far along:  19 weeks
Gender:  GIRL!!!!!!  We went into it thinking we'd found out Baby N was a boy, so we were a little surprised but very excited with the news!
Belly button in or out: Pretty sure it'll be flat within the next couple weeks.
Maternity clothes: Same as last week.  I'll be stretching out my regular shirts as long as possible, but wore one of my new maternity shirts one day this week and was a little frightened of all the room I have to grow in it.
Stretch marks: None yet. 
Sleep: Good, except for waking up in the middle of the night thinking about baby!
Best moment this week: Finding out Baby Noel is a girl!  Getting to see her move around TONS during my ultrasound (guess the OJ did the trick) and hearing she's growing just as she should be.
Miss anything:  Being able to sleep on my back. 
Movement: Definitely feeling more over the past few days, enough that Tyler was even able to feel some movement.  :)
Cravings:  Definitely fruit & sweets.  That coffee ice cream... yum.
Queasy or sick:  Feeling good.
Looking forward to:  Christmas, shopping for baby girl clothes and getting started on her nursery!  My brain's been working overtime ever since we found out she is a she.  I made my first baby girl purchase this week - this pretty little blanket  to wrap baby up like a little burrito. :)

In other {baby} news, Baby Noel has a (first) name - Ellia.  We had originally intended to keep her name a secret until she's here, but I guess I got a little too excited for all that.  We started calling her Ellie before we even left the doctor's office on Wednesday, so I'm pretty sure "Ellia" is here to stay. :)
