First of all, sorry for this being a day late. I haven’t been feeling brilliant lately :(
How far along? 19 weeks.
How big is baby? Baby is 6 inches (mango) and weighs 8.5 ounces.
Total weight gain/loss? 4kg (8.8 lbs) overall. 0.4kg this week (0.4lbs) this week.
Maternity clothes? Haven’t bought anything new this week. I just wear leggins and my stretchy jeans with vest tops recently.
Stretch marks: Nope :D
Sleep? Still uncomfortable when sleeping but I’m getting used to it and finding ways that are better than others.
Best moment this week? Me and hubby both felt baby kick this week. I’ve been feeling flutters but one night I could feel it quite strong and he put his hand on my stomach and felt it as well!
Movement? As I just said I felt a strong kick once, but apart from that they’ve just been light flutters which I’m not actually sure are baby everytime.
Symptoms? Still been getting pretty bad headaches which are starting to get me down as they make me feel sick and all I can do is sleep them off. Also I’ve been getting really itchy cleavage and under boob (TMI) so have been getting sore rashes which I’ve started using sudocrem to hopefully help.
Food cravings? Still haven’t really had any cravings.
Food aversions? Nothing really stands out this week.
Gender? Less than 2 weeks until we find out! So excited.
Labor signs? No.
Belly button in or out? In.
What I miss? Being able to sleep normally!
What I’m looking forward to? The next scan to see our little bug again and find out the sex.
Milestones? Feeling the baby kick.
About baby: 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. 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.
Thanks for reading, see you next week.
