Baby Business: 19 Weeks

Better late then never huh? Ill be reaching half way tomorrow (look forward to that post)

This week:
Baby's now the size of a mango! Due to a little growth spurt (she's about a half pound in weight and six to eight inches long) and a substance called vernix caseosa. This greasy white stuff covers your baby's skin, protecting it from the surrounding amniotic fluid. (Without it, she'd look totally wrinkled as she entered the world.) The vernix sheds as delivery approaches, though some babies still sport a bit of the coating at birth.

How far along: 19 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: -36 (still as far as I know, Ill have some updates next week)
Maternity clothes: this belly won't fit into regular pants.
Stretch marks?: nope
Sleep: I slept through the night for the first time in MONTHS on Saturday, oh was it wonderful!
Best moment this week: see next question!
Movement: YUP, finally. Okay really its still kind of early but I've been kicked or punched or something fun.
Food cravings: nothing good to report sadly.
Gender: SHE'S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!
What I miss: the ability to shop (thank you bedrest)
Milestones: feeling her move!
