Week 19

Week 19

How far along: 19 Weeks

How big is baby: From the Bump - The size of a mango. At about 6.0 inches long and weighing in at about 8.5 ounces, she's getting there! She is developing a protective coating over her skin, called vernix caseosa. It's greasy and white and you may see some of it at her birth. She's also working on her five senses. Nerve cells for her sense of taste, hearing, sight and smell are developing in her brain.


Weight gain/loss: No change from last week, so still up 5.6 pounds from my prepregnancy weight. This is shocking considering the amount of desserts I ate at Blissdom.

Stretch marks: None yet.

Belly Button: I like to refer to it as a deep cavernous hole. I have this nice round belly with this giant crater in it.

Sleep: Last week was a rough one. I slept great at Blissdom despite missing my giant pregnancy pillow.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Sweets. All the sweet things.

Movement: Later in the day after last week's post I started to feel these little popping sensations. Then nothing. The past few days though I've felt what feels like more fluid movements. It was great talking to all the other moms this weekend and tell them about it and hear, 'girl, that's your baby."

Symptoms: Round ligament pain still. OW. Plus a lot of pressure. I swear parts are going to fall out from between my legs at any moment. I've gotten a lot of laughs about that and am told it just gets worse from here.

What I'm looking forward to: FINDING OUT THE SEX THIS WEEK!!!!!! My appointment is on Thursday, but since John is out of town I won't actually find out until Saturday.

Best moment of the week: Spending my birthday with friends. Meeting all the great people at Blissdom and just leaving there feeling so uplifted.

    1. Thanks Tori. I really hope to be able to document it all and then be able to go back later - either for the second time around or when I'm near the end and miserable!
