Pregnancy Journal: Week 19

WOW I have almost reached the half way mark of my pregnancy that is so hard to believe! As of now baby is still being a night owl and is only active around 11/12ish at night. 

How Far Along -  

19 Weeks Pregnant (19 weeks 0 days) 

Due Date -  

December 13th, 2013 

Boy or Girl -  

Bump Picture -  

Baby Development -  
Baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches now. The baby's arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other. The baby's kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is starting to grow. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on the baby's skin to prevent it from pickling the amniotic fluid.

Symptoms -  
This week my sciatic nerve was acting up a lot so pretty much just took things as easy as I could. The heat has been crazy with heat index's over 100* here in Ohio so I have been trying to stay cool and hydrated.   

Current Cravings -  
I am back to craving slushies with it being so hot out other then that I have been wanting fresh fruits and veggies. 

Currently Avoiding -  
I am currently avoiding doughnuts and orange juice both give me a very bad upset stomach. 

Belly Button Status -  
Still In but starting to head out. 

Movement -  
Starting to feel more movement, but mostly at night. Sometime during the day the baby will stretch out into my ribs which is uncomfortable but that is usually only after I eat a big meal.  

Any Appointments? -  
No appointments this week. 

Any Baby Related Purchases? -  
Didn't buy anything this week for the baby.

  1. That's so crazy that you're already almost halfway- I still remember you announcing like it was yesterday! Are you going to find out the gender or are you waiting to be surprised?

  2. WOW half way already?!? That went by FAST! And I craved slushies during my last pregnancy too. Never did before though, weird. Btw, you look awesome, love the baby bump :)

  3. I love it! The bump is adorable {and the hair is cute too}. I also cannot believe you are 1/2 way there. Keep us posted. I cannot wait to see how you progress.

  4. Moving so fast. I'm excited to hear if its a boy or a girl.

  5. Oh, Trista! I love those curls! You're starting to get round! We will soon be over run with Bestie Babies~! I just wish we could all get together so I can hug them ALL!!

  6. I'll have to remember to come back and do this!

    You're looking cute.
