Week 19

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 19 weeks 3 days

Size of the Baby? she's still a mango.. haha

Maternity Clothes? Yeah.. actually am headed out to shop for a few more tops tomorrow and maybe a pair of skinnies :)

Gender? she's still a girl!

Movement? I drank some hot chocolate at the football game last friday night and she was definitely "tickling" me! just little weird flutters. but nothing substantial enough still, to say "Oh wow! That was definitely her!"

Sleep? Still not had a good nights sleep for waking up every 30 min to reposition myself. i'm not complaining though. being off the sleep meds is wonderful

Cravings? no cravings but hungry ALL. THE. TIME.

Symptoms? when i get tired, I'm not just tired. my whole body hurts and I'm exhausted. i can barely stay awake through my tv shows. my back hurts pretty bad sometimes.

What I miss? not missing anything this week.

Milestones? READ POST BELOW! :) 90% sure Mary Tyler has SIX LITTLE TOES on her right foot ... and i almost passed out during her anatomy scan. She weighs 11 ounces right now and 7 inches long from her head to her bottom. She's breech... her head is right at my belly button and her feet press on my bladder... which is why I have to go ALL THE TIME. The past two ultrasounds we've had we clearly see her drinking, no, GULPING amniotic fluid. Maybe she's a thirsty little baby and will be a pro at breastfeeding :)

Weight Gain? 5 lbs .. eeeek

What I’m nervous about? passing out. any "close call" that i have leads to more close calls over the next couple of weeks.

What I’m excited about? working on her nursery!! it's so cool to see it coming along

Baby Center Update for Week 19:
Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.

Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.

  1. Love! I can't believe you've only gained 5 pounds and you are that far along with such a cute belly! I've already gained 6 pounds and I'm 3 weeks behind you. I blame it on all the sweets and ice cream I crave. haha I wish I would crave veggies. :) Love all the ultrasound pics of your wee one!
