19 weeks

How far along? 19 weeks, 6 days  

How big is baby? 6 inches, 8.5 oz. A mango.

What is Baby doing this week? Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil and dead skin cells (yum… yuk) now coasts the baby’s skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You may see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature. 
Maternity Clothes? Yes.

Stretch Marks? Not yet…
Sleep? Nope, I think it’s because I’ve always been a side sleeper, if I was a stomach or back sleeper than I think I would be having problems. 

Best moment this week? We had our ultrasound!! The tech was amazing and spent lots of time with us going through everything! The baby has 10 fingers, 10 toes, all the bones are the length that they should be, we saw his or her’s tiny little heart, kidneys, and spine. We saw the baby sucking its thumb, and kicking non stop. Such an awesome and surreal experience, we got lots of pictures too!! Baby is measuring perfectly for its due date, so we will see!
On a side note, Brent noticed that the baby has a “decent size chin” lol, but a cute little nose (must be mine!) 

At first they had the baby under my maiden name, so we got that changed. 
Miss Anything? nothing this week.

Movement? Not yet. Soon I hope.

Food cravings? Back to sour keys! They are hard to find, next time we stop at Costco we’ll have to pick some up. So far we’ve boughten Sour Kids, and now Sour Bears. 

Food aversions? Nope, I’m good to go.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Not this week!
Have you started to show yet? You betcha. 

Gender? We could have found out, but we’re waiting. 

Labor Signs? Nope

Belly Button- In or Out? In

Wedding Rings- On or Off? On

Mood? Feeling good! 

Looking forward to: Getting my hair cut (by that I mean a trim) next week.
