18 & 19 Bump

Week: 19

How Big is Baby: Baby is the size of a mango! The bump says "At about 6.0 inches long and weighing in at about 8.5 ounces, she's getting there! 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. Working on her five senses. Nerve cells for her sense of taste, hearing, sight and smell are developing in her brain ."

Weight Gain: I'm not exactly sure. I think between 7 and 10 lbs. I will find out for sure Monday at my Dr appt.

Gender: BOY!

Names: We have a name! We aren't sharing until baby is born tho.

Symptoms: Sciatic nerve pain and lower back pain. I'm also really tired again.

Sleep: Sleep has been great. I don't wake up at all during the night and have no trouble falling asleep.

Movement: He's been moving a lot more and all movements are getting stronger. I love it!

Maternity Clothes: I'm pretty much only wearing maternity clothes now and my regular cardigans and a few shirts.

Food Cravings: I've been craving soft serve icecream the past couple weeks. Still eating Reese's egg often, too. Chris bought be a ton of them for Valentine's day.

Food Aversions: Nothing. 

Stretchmarks: some light ones around my belly button. I'm sure they will darken up soon, great.

What I'm Looking Forward To: my next ultrasound on Feb 18th

What I Miss: nothing.

Next Drs Appointment:  Feb 18 for the anatomy scan.

Best Moment of the Week: getting more boy things and settling on a name.

18 weeks is the grey shirt and 19 weeks is the green shirt
