My Pregnant Body // 19 Weeks

         19 WEEKS!
January 29, 2014 - February 4, 2014

Head to rump, my Mini Baby Bean is the same length as an eggplant -- Around 9.25 inches!
A white, waxy, waterproof material, called Vernix, now covers & protects Baby's skin.
The main airways of Baby's lungs, the Bronchioles, are beginning to develop.


Still absurdly hungry at all times.
This past week, Baby has discovered it's love for Little Debbie Nutty Bars. YUM.
I've also been craving a lot of fruits -- Watermelon, Strawberries & Peaches.
** Really hoping my special someone sends me and Edible Arrangement loaded with Chocolate Covered Strawberries for Valentines Day.

Nesting mode is still hanging around, although I did find myself slightly more fatigued this week.

Nose Bleeds, a symptom I've forgot to mention in my past posts, are still bothering me. I had nose bleeds with Oliver, too, just not this bad. I sometimes wake up and immediately have to run and grab a tissue.

Pesky acne keeps popping up, but I keep using Extra Strength Desitin & it zaps the zits away -- Until a new one pops up.

Tons of hip & back pain.
Just my left hip. When I wake in the middle of the night to use the restroom or in the morning, my hip is always numb, kind of like when your foot falls asleep, & super achy.
My back is hurting, I know, because of the growing humanoid inside of me.

Baby has really been active this week, learning all kinds of new acrobatics! I can finally see the kicks and punches when I'm laying down and looking at my stomach. I love it.

As far as the Name Game goes, we have a sweet girl name picked out .. but no boy name. EIK.
Gender is still TBA after my 20 week SONO.


His cravings switched this week from Gummy Worms to Peach Rings. Yuck.

He also thinks Baby is a boy.
