How far along? 19 weeks (baby is 6 inches long from head to rump & the size of a large heirloom tomato)
Symptoms: Still having a lot of heartburn & feeling a lot of achiness in my lower abdomen along with a lot of round ligament pain.
Sleep: still no trouble falling asleep. Only getting up once a night to pee & have been able to fall back asleep lately which has been nice!
Food cravings/aversions: been craving a good ol' cold turkey sandwich like crazy this week
Movement? yes, feeling the little "flutters" all the time now
What I miss? like I said above, turkey sandwiches
Best moment(s) this week: seeing my favorite OB & getting a good report from her regarding my pregnancy
What I'm looking forward to: reaching the "half-baked" point next week when I am 20 weeks
Next Appointment: anatomy scan with the Perinatologist on Sept. 21st
Milestones: Baby T's arms, legs & facial features are in the right proportions to each other & the rest of the body now. The kidneys continue to make urine & the hair on the scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on the skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
