19 weeks along

 19 weeks

I talked to my doctor this past Tuesday about some things that I have had concerns about.  Nothing to fret about but just for future.  I have honestly been feeling like I might deliver this baby breech and I wanted to make sure my doctor was on the same wave length as me.  If she wasn't then I would need to start looking for a provider that would be on board.  You see, I want to avoid a c-section just like any other girl. :)  My provider is awesome and said she actually enjoys delivering breech babies.  I am so thrilled that she is on board and I know she will make sure this is a safe and enjoyable delivery.  I really did enjoy the delivery of my daughter, it was a very spiritual experience for me!!  

Weight Gain: 14 lbs.  I am sure I had gained twice that with my daughter at this point.

Cravings: Fruit, ice water, salads, chicken, pork, mashed potatoes with extra gravy,  juice

Symptoms: Shot pain on my right side still of my hip (girls in my group said that should go away shortly), tossing and turning in my sleep, getting up to pee about a billion times (that is new from my first pregnancy, I never had that issue), braxton hicks which my doctor said is perfectly normal this early (she has seen people have them as early as 12 weeks)

Movement: Baby likes to move around early in the morning as I'm getting ready and then right before I go to bed.  It is constantly in my ribs and has only caused some pain once.  I still have pain there from when I was carrying my daughter and I'm sure it is only going to get worse.  My daughter was able to feel a tiny little kick just the other night.  It was really cool!  I think the baby has been having hiccups lately unless it is just kicking in a consecutive manner.

Their baby's the size of a mango!
He is about 6.0 inches long and weighing in at about 8.5 ounces, he's getting there!

Their baby at 19 weeks
  • Developing a protective coating over his skin, called vernix caseosa. It's greasy and white and you may see some of it at his birth.
  • Working on his five senses. Nerve cells for his sense of taste, hearing, sight and smell are developing in his brain.
