The Weekly Run-Down: 19

How Far Along: 19 weeks + 2 days pregnant.

Size of baby: Baby is a mango - or a six inch sandwich from Subway, if you're so inclined. :)

Random & Interesting Developmental Stuff:  Here's this week's run-down:

Vernix caseosa begins to coat the skin. The greasy, cheese-like white coating helps regulate body temperature and protects your baby's skin while it's submerged in amniotic fluid. By the time your baby is born, most of the vernix will be gone. Your baby's heartbeat is growing stronger now and it's about twice as fast as yours.

Total Weight Gain: I'm up about 3kg from the first OB weigh-in at 10 weeks. 

Sleep: Since Monday's ultrasound, I've slept beautifully. Maybe it was the worrying making me an insomniac.

Symptoms: More stomach pain, and I'm getting hungrier now. Still with the discharge.

Cravings: White chocolate Magnum icecream. Mmmm.

Gender: IT'S STILL A GIRL! (It's nice to be able to say that.)

Movement: Felt a few jabs this week, but still not consistent. So excited about this!

Maternity Clothes: More dresses - our weather has been 38-40o C quite a lot this week, boo summer.

Milestones: Seeing baby girl (still a girl!) at our morphology scan, looking HEALTHY. Best news ever.

What I'm looking forward to: Hitting 20 weeks in a few days time & having Jase home in a week. Huzzah!

The belly: Poppage!!!!
