Pregnancy Highlights

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 19 weeks!

Size of baby: 
your baby's the size of a mango!

At about 6.0 inches long and weighing in at about 8.5 ounces, he's getting there!

Baby Development This Week: 

·         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.
Maternity Clothes: Still in regular clothes and using belly band for jeans.

Gender: IT’S A BOY! John Declan Leviner! He will be called Declan. Declan is of Irish origin and means full of goodness. J

Movement: He is becoming more and more active as the days go by!

Sleep: It’s not as easy as the first trimester.

What I miss: It’s getting harder to move around. Sometimes I feel like a turtle…lol.
Cravings: Mostly salty foods.

Symptoms: headaches, harder to move around and lean over

Best Moment this week: The gender reveal was so much fun and I was able to drink a decaf mocha without getting sick…wahoo!
