How Far Along: 19 weeks
Weight Gain: 1.7kg - finally starting to gain!
Innie or Outtie: Innie.
Maternity Clothes: Feeling more comfortable in maternity clothes but still fit into my old stuff.
Sleep: Worst couple of nights’ sleep so far. Kept waking up every time I needed to roll over. Or worse, waking up and feeling wide awake but it being only 2am.
Pregnancy Perk: Nothing really!
Embarrassing Pregnant Moment: None this week.
Best Moment this week: Feeling more flutters.
Baby Purchases this week: A beautiful (albeit secondhand) cot for your room ♥
Gender: We found out last week you’re a little GIRL! And we’ve picked out your name - Daddy came up with your first name and I picked your middle name. But we’re not telling anyone until you’re here.
Movement: A few more flutters, but no definite kicks or anything yet.
Food Cravings: None really - I’ve been boring!
Food Aversions: None really, other than what I already disliked.
How’s Mummy? A little sicky today - sinus pain, sore throat, appetite’s gone. Just the affects of the weather and working too hard I think. I’m otherwise okay though.
How’s Daddy? Daddy’s still working hard, I know he’d love to be spending more time at home but we have to work!
What I am looking forward to: The next scan to confirm again that you’re a girl still :P and finally meeting you!
Our Baby in Veggie/Fruit Terms: You’re the size of a mango! Approximately 15cm long and 240 grams in weight.
What Baby Peanut is up to: Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby’s skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might actually get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature.
