How far along? 19 weeks and 0 days (posting this a couple days late)
Baby’s Size: 6 inches
Baby’s Weight: 8 1/2 ounces
Development: Baby's brain is hard at work developing his senses. His hair is starting to sprout, and he a waxy coating is forming over his skin to keep him from "pickling" in the amniotic fluid. Ew.
Weight gain/loss: I gained 1 pound this week.
Maternity clothes? I wore my first pair of maternity pants to work this week. They were falling down all day. Oh, well. Next time I will wear a Bella Band over them to hold them up.
Best moment this week? On Monday, I brought blue cupcakes for my class to announce that I'm having a boy. While the students were eating the cupcakes, the quietest girl in my class came up to me, hugged me, looked up at me and said with a smile, "Congratulations!" It was so sweet.
Symptoms: Stuffy nose & congestion, bloody noses, headaches, back pain, and a few pulls, twinges and baby fluttering.
Food cravings/aversions: Blueberry pop tarts and these amazing little packs of Welch's fruit snacks. Still no aversions.
What I'm looking forward to: A successful anatomy scan on Thursday!
Milestones: Our crib and crib bedding arrived! The bookshelves are finished and it's starting to look like a nursery.
What my baby and I look like this week:
