Sorry it has been so long since I have last posted! It has been busy here at the Maples’ house getting ready for our gender reveal, which is this Saturday! I can’t wait!

Baby Maples is the size of a tomato!

How far along? 19 weeks
Maternity clothes? finally found a pair of maternity jeans I like from gap.com
Stretch marks? not yet
Sleep: haven’t been sleeping well here the past few weeks – I guess because I can’t sleep on my stomach
Best moment this week: feeling the baby move
Miss anything? still missing sushi and sleeping on my stomach
Movement: YES! I skipped the flutters and went straight to kicks Рat least I think that is what I am feeling, I just feel the little one poking me every so often
Food cravings:¬†still addicted to everything strawberry and I’ve been loving vegetable lo mien – weirdest food craving of the week: fruit and marshmallows IMG_4025

Food aversions: still don’t like the way alcoholic drinks smell

Gender Prediction: boy
Labor Signs: no
Symptoms: some cramping this week due to the growing belly РI feel like I woke up one morning and there was a baby bump! Yay!
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Mood: excited
Looking forward to: finding out the gender on Saturday!

I have bought a few things for the baby. I haven’t gone crazy yet because I want to know what we are having first. Makes it much easier to buy clothes. But these two things were so cute, I just couldn’t resist‚Ķ and they are gender neutral!
