At about 6.0 inches long and weighing in at about 8.5 ounces, he’s getting there! Developing a protective coating over his skin, called vernix caseosa. It’s greasy and white and you may see some of it at her birth. Working on his five senses. Nerve cells for her sense of taste, hearing, sight and smell are developing in his brain.
How Far Along: 19 Weeks 2 Days
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Boy or girl: Not Telling Yet!
Currently craving: Salad! And today something sweet so I made Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Currently Avoiding: Same as last week, nothing really.
Weight: I looked this time and I’d rather not say. Let’s just say I didn’t see this number until I was much further along with Mason
Belly button status: IN!
Sleep grade: Still pretty good!
Recent Crazy Dream: Nothing that I remember at this point.
Evidence of pregnancy brain: It’s there. It just tends to be elusive on these posts.
Symptoms?: Headaches. Round Ligament Pain which totally freaked me out in the middle of my sister’s confirmation! I thought I was having contractions. I’ve never had them with either of my previous pregnancies.
Health: I had a cervical scan on Tuesday and my cervix was looking FAB. 4.7. Makes me excited to think that maybe I don’t have a cervical issue. However I’m a paranoid freaking mess. While I was in NY I visited the emergency room because I was having a freak out over the round ligament pain and a heaviness in my pelvis which has a lot to do with baby’s poposition. Baby’s head is constantly down low!
Movement: Yes! I feel the baby daily multiple times a day. It’s an amazing feeling and I can’t wait to feel the baby even more!
Any appointments?: I mentioned my last appointment under health and I have another one on Wednesday for my cervical check and p17 shot!
Any baby related purchases? Nothing this week as far as I remember I need to slow down a bit! Cloth diapers are killing me since I didn’t cloth diaper Mason!
Best thing to happen in the past week/ Worst: My cervical scan being good was the best thing and feeling baby move a ton! Worst thing would be my constant paranoia. Another good thing? I passed my pPROM milestone. I never made it to the 19th week with Elena. A little less than 5 weeks until viability. Every day counts.
And my bumpity bump:
