My baby is now around the size of a large tomato. She is approximately six inches long and weighs almost eight and a half ounces now!
This is a very important time in terms of sensory development. Inside the baby’s brain, certain areas are being specialized for smell, touch, taste, hearing, and vision.
Another big development in the last week, hair may finally be sprouting from her scalp.
How Far Along?
19 weeks !
How Big Is The Little One?
My baby is now the size of a large tomato.
Total Weight Gain / Loss?
I have lost 2 pounds since last week. It is the same 2 pounds I gain and lose.
I am still in my normal clothing as I have no bump yet.
What sleep? Oh Em Gee ! This insomnia is HELL ! At least I do get to play catch up at 5:30 am – 6 am. I usually go back to sleep for a few hours and wake up around 8 or 9 am.
Best Moment of the Week?
The best thing that happened this week is that the invitations for my baby shower, the invites I designed, arrived from Soiree Paper Co. They are beyond what I dreamed of and I am very pleased with the end result. I am also looking forward to leaving for Hampton tomorrow and laying around on the beach all weekend with my family. My sister, niece and nephew are meeting my mom and I there tomorrow. Can’t wait to leave early in the morning and I am praying that it does not rain one drop this weekend and that its warm.
I am definitely in the honeymoon phase of the pregnancy, which is scary ! The only symptoms that have come on are insomnia and slight constipation. I am now back to taking Colace every morning and I am upping the amount of fluid intake. I will get some prunes to snack on, if I can stomach them. I used to love them as a kid.
I am still devoid of an appetite and I do not crave anything. I have had a lot of Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s Sunrise Sunset smoothies this week…
Nothing salty or sweet can I tolerate.
What I Miss?
What I Am Looking Forward To?
Finally getting a baby bump and the end of round ligament pain.
Nope, nothing ! I have a pooch or a small bump some days and then it is flat again. I am 19 weeks, so I figure in the next several weeks, as my uterus rises, the baby will finally pop.
Baby / Mommy Purchases?
The only thing I bought this week was a few cute headbands.
