19 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #3
This week baby is around six inches from crown to rump and half a pound in weight. Arms and legs are in proportion, neurons are now connected between brain and muscles and cartilage is turning into bone. This means baby can control their movements a lot more. Vernix is also starting to cover and coat baby to help protect their skin.
This week I managed to come off my tablets completely, for one day. Then spent the next 3 recovering and paying for it. My body coped well and gave me such hope that it might be time to finally come off my tablets but no such luck. I spent the next day being sick and not keeping much down so I had to start taking them again. I don't mind taking them if it means me and baby are ok but I hope I'm not on them for my entire pregnancy. I'm also ill this week with a lovely cough and cold from Paige. I've had more heartburn and felt hungry again. Still feeling loads of movements, she does still have some quieter days. Mark also felt her kick for the first time this week, about time as I started feeling her 8 weeks ago! We also had our 20 week scan this week and I shall update more on that soon.
Belly: 32.25 - smaller than last week, guessing that's because of the sickness.
Weight: +4 from 15 weeks. Overall I'm up 6lbs.
