And how cute is this little organizing bin? I love the colors on it and of course the little bird... It's just perfect for her clothes, books, or anything else I decide to fill it with. (found here)
When I found this little hat I immediately pictured my little baby girl wearing it. She'll be born in December, and I think she'll be the most adorable thing ever rocking this hat! Love it! (found here)
One of my newest obsessions are head bands for little girls! I've been looking at them ever since I got pregnant since I just knew she was going to be a precious girl. Talk about maternal instinct, right? And Etsy has SO many of them! This is just one of many that I love! (found here)

How far along: 19 weeks 1 day!
Maternity clothes: The one in the picture is the first and only maternity top I’ve worn! Still in desperate need for some pants!
Best moment this week: Oh goodness! This has been such an amazing week I don’t even know where to start! I felt my Little Love move for the first time and now she kicks so strong! We also got to see her move around on the ultrasound and find out that she’s a sweet little girl! And, the hubby and I went to try a whole bunch of different baby stuff, like travel systems, pack n’ plays, swings, etc. It’s been a truly blessed week. I loved it!
Foods I love: Still liking lots of food! I’m craving Mediterranean this week…
Foods I hate: still not a huge fan of most meets and fast food smells. Also not a huge fan of my prenatals. I though that since I’ve been feeling a whole lot better I can start taking my prenatals again, but I was oh so wrong. Not even ten minutes after taking them, I puke my guts out. I don’t think it’s worth the experience at this point. It just sucks because I really do need all the nutrients it has.
Movement: yes, yes, yes! I love it when she moves around and kicks! I wish I could just squeeze her!
Gender: Sugar and spice!
Labor signs: Nope…
Belly Button in or out: making it’s way out I believe…
What I miss: Still nothing. I just wish that I didn’t have to pee so darn often.
How I feel: This week my heart has been truly close to bursting out with happiness. I am just so excited about all the things that this year has in store for us. God has been amazing beyond belief and I’m so very grateful!
Milestones: Having our first ultrasound and finding out we have a sweet little girl!

.... mixed with raspberries for a to-die-for cheesecake experience...
.... or even mixed with hazelnuts for mouth watering cupcakes.
Thank God for making chocolate! I really don't know how us girls would handle life without it! I hope you ladies have a sweet, chocolate filled Friday!

How far along: 18 week and 1 day… it think… This week when I went to see my OB doc they counted me as being 18 weeks on Saturday (which would put me at 18w4d), but I really think they just made a mistake, because every other time my weeks have started on Tue.
Total weight gain: My OB was really happy to find out I put on some weight. Total of 5lbs since the beginning. I guess I’ve never been this happy to add on 5 lbs especially in my belly area! It’s so strange the things that pregnancy makes you love!
Maternity clothes: Haven’t worn any yet, but I really do need some pants! I can see that happening this weekend….
Best moment this week: We heard little love’s heart beat and we also heard him/her move around. It makes my heart melt every.single.time. I just hate that I can only listen to it for a few second every month. I just try to absorb it all in at once as fast as I can.
Foods I love: I am glad to say that I am realizing more and more each day that food is becoming my best friend again! Now I just love most foods. Today I had a 6’’ Subway Sub, and for the first time in months I pretty much inhaled it and was still quite hungry after. So glad to be back!
Foods I hate: Not too many, but I would have to say fast foods. That may also have something to do with the fact that we have a Mc Donald’s in our hospital (I know… how ironic is that), and it’s pretty much the only food we can have at night unless we bring something from home. I can honestly say that if I never see another McDonald in my life it will still be too soon.
Movement: None…. And it’s driving me CRAZY!!!! I know that she or he is moving in there a lot… we did hear the movement with the doppler, but I still don’t feel anything. I try to pay really close attention to it too, but I guess Little Love is not ready to kick strong enough yet.
Gender: We (cross our fingers) find out this Friday. I have two days left, and the anxiety is slowly killing me. I have nightmares that this child will not be willing to show off the goods! Please of please child of mine cooperate!
Labor signs: None for now, thanks… I’ll be asking for them around 38 weeks though.
Belly Button in or out: I cannot believe how much this belly-button has come out! It’s crazy what a fat belly does to you! I mean, it’s still in, but really making it’s way out fast!
What I miss: Still glad to say that I don’t miss anything! Nothing at all! God is awesome!
Weekly wisdom: Trust in God. He will carry you through anything.
Milestones: We saw our OB doc for the first time, and we’re about to find out how this little love is doing and what he/she is. It’s been a great week! Please pray that Friday will go really well!

How cute is this J Crew summer dress?!!?! What you though that cravings come only in eatable forms? Well now you know that they come in all times and forms, like this lovely outfit!
But since it may not fit me for much longer, I will compromise and be more than happy with this super cute prego dress from A pea in the Pod. Love it!
I'm just infatuated with those flats from J Crew! How adorable are they? Cute and functional, and they are just perfect for my tired prego feet!
And last but not least, the biggest craving I've had for quite some time now is a vacation that is far, far away from here! I've been dreaming about bora-bora and it's crystal clear waters and warm sandy beaches! I would really give up all my other cravings for this one! If it was only possible!
So what have your cravings been lately?

How far along: 17 beautiful weeks!
Maternity clothes: not yet, but I feel like I’m getting closer especially with the jeans.
Sleep: Sleep has been awesome. It’s when I’m awake that I have to pee every hr (especially when I’m at work!)
Best moment this week: I’ve actually been feeling like my belly has been growing this week more than any other. That’s kind of a cool feeling.
Foods I love: I’ve been really, really craving a sandwich from Panera, but they don’t have any Paneras around here. I would LOVE to have one!
Foods I hate: Still meat. Especially beef.
Movement: Not yet. But I really hope it happens this next week.
Gender: We find out next Friday… that’s if this little love will agree to let us take a peek.
Labor signs: Nope! None of those!
Belly Button in or out: Still in, but this week it came out a LOT.
What I miss: Nothing really. This has been the first week that I haven’t thrown up this entire pregnancy, so I really miss nothing right now.
Weekly wisdom: Never miss a chance to tell those you care about how much you love them…Milestones: We’re one week away from finding out what we’re having! I’m super excited about that!

... I just watched and took pictures since I knew I would lose my lunch in the back seat if I even tried.
The guys also had fun in the pool, while I just enjoyed the sun before I just got too hot and had to go inside. Yeah, being prego kind of wears me out fast...
After all this, we went home to relax. We grilled and watched a movie and listened to our neighbors setting off fireworks until 1am. I hope you guys had a great forth as well! Happy Monday!
