19 weeks and moving along.............

We had a big week on the baby front. On Tuesday we had our big mid-pregnancy ultrasound with the specialist and thankfully our baby looks beautiful..... including his brain! This is an area of sensitivity for me and something which haunts me until this appointment is over. I do have to go back to the specialist one last time in 4 weeks but that's just to ensure everything is growing appropriately. He mentioned the baby's heart is the size of a dime at the moment so a double-check is fine by me. Plus this dr seems to be more cautious than most. Either way, getting the a-ok! is music to my ears. 

How Far Along? 19w

Size of baby: Over 8.5oz and 6 inches- size of a large heirloom tomato!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +7lbs

Maternity Clothes: No maternity clothes yet....

Gender: BOY (another....) - no first name although we do have a short list, middle name will definitely be Tyler

Movement: The flutters and nudges are more defined but nothing consistent or anything anyone could feel outside of my belly.

What I miss: nothing really at this point!

Sleep: terrible... but not because of the baby! My dream sleeper boy#1 has taken to needing mommy laying with him each and every night which is pretty uncomfortable. 

Symptoms: I've finally gotten beyond the first trimester fatigue. The only real symptoms I'm having is my ever growing belly! I also have been extremely HUNGRY and now THIRSTY!!!!

Stretch marks: No sign of any stretch marks

What I am looking forward to: trip to STL for Memorial Day to meet baby Madden- I love being there so Im looking forward to it!

Belly button (in or out): In

Milestones: Made it past the first trimester and definitely have regained some of my energy!

Baby Ramey’s Progress:

Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of an heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
