Weekly Update - 19 Weeks!

Monday, February 16, 2009

Okay, so this weekly update is a little late, so you will probably see another one on Wednesday! Ha! Things have been going great lately, I just got back from Florida on Friday night and was welcomed home with a dozen roses and chocolate. You can't go wrong with that (good job honey)!! Florida was absolutely gorgeous and was a nice break from some of the cold weather here. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling very well during the trip so I missed out on an evening boat ride but all in all had a great time. Too bad I had to work during the day though ha!

Baby O has been growing like crazy lately, and so has mommy's tummy! 17 Weeks seemed to be a big week for growth, and so did 19 Weeks as well! We can't wait to head to our ultrasound a week from today to see our little peanut again! How Is Baby O Growing?

Baby O'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 our voices now, so I find myself talking to her, or singing to her all the time! According to http://www.babycenter.com/, she weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom, so about the size of a mango. 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.
