And here we are at 19 weeks my little bean that I love so much! You have been so incredibly active this past week and I LOOOOOOVE it!! There are seriously no words to describe the feeling. It’s magical and beautiful and I feel so grateful for every one of your punches and kicks! Happy 19 week s my love!
Weight: 116.5lbs (up 3.5lbs)
Here’s what 19 weeks looked like last time and apparently I missed the 19 weeks development post last time, so here is what is going on with you!
How your baby’s growing:
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.
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of an heirloom tomato. 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.
We are almost half way there my love!
