Total weight gain/loss: Loss of 2lbs
Baby's Fruit Size: Mango
Sleep: Sleeping a lot but waking up to use the restroom
Best moment this week: Spending Thanksgiving with family, of course we're grateful for you!
Miss Anything? Not so much.
Movement: Not yet. Dr says I have an anterior placenta so it may be a week or so still.
Food cravings/aversions: Asparagus makes me gag. Which is weird since it used to be a favorite of mine.
Symptoms: REALLY bad hip/butt/back pain especially when I sit! Still some heartburn and fatigue.
Mood: Well I want to say great, but this pain has put me in a sour mood. I was sad to miss going to San Jose, but I'm still of course really proud to be growing you!
Looking forward to: Feeling movement!
In your 19th week of pregnancy, your unborn baby's organs continue to grow. His body is covered with lanugo—soft hairs and a sticky protective coating that keeps his skin from drying out in the amniotic fluid. Your baby is moving frequently, and by now you should be able to feel those movements. Your physician can hear your baby-to-be's heartbeat with a stethoscope placed on your abdomen.
Baby is covered in vernix, a white, cheesy "cream" that protects her skin from the long bath in amniotic fluid. Preemies are covered in vernix at birth—"posties" have almost none.
Me at 19 weeks!
