Baby M – 19 Weeks


Bump Analysis? Since my photographer is currently in Las Vegas, we’ll use a group shot from Malarie and Whitney’s birthday dinner 🙂 Ignore how huge my face looks… I’m going to blame the scarf.

Month/Trimester? 5 months (according to my book from the doctor weeks 18-21 make up month 5 – but my mom argues I’m still 4 months) / 2nd Trimester!

Fruit of the week? Our baby is the size of a mango! 6 inches long and 8.5 ounces!

Development? Junebug is developing a protective coating over her skin known as vernix caseosa, and she is also working on developing her 5 senses!  Nerve cells for taste, hearing, sight, and smell are developing her her brain.

Movement? She seemed pretty still last week, but she has been making up for it this week!  She’s bouncing around like crazy in there!  I can’t wait for it to be something Paul can feel.  Right now I feel her move, and quickly put his hand on my stomach and then she stops… Not cooperative 🙂

Name? Aubrey Joy 🙂

Testing? The results of the APT test came back and Aubrey tested negative for open tube neural defects and Spina Bifida!  Thanking God for a healthy little girl!!  We go in next Tuesday for our 20 week anatomy scan.  This will be happening at a high risk specialist.  Due to some family history (i.e. my sister being born with a hole in her heart – which closed up on it’s own) they just want to be a little more cautious and have Aubrey evaluated by a specialist.  They will focus a little more on her heart development along with the rest of the anatomy scan.

Weight Gain? 6 lbs…

Symptoms?  Same old…

Cravings? Shrimp!

Aversions? Buffalo Chicken Dip

Sleep? I assumed I would sleep through the night until the third trimester, and then I would be so uncomfortable that wouldn’t happen… but I actually can’t remember the last time I slept through the night.  If I’m not tossing and turning, I’m going to the bathroom or I’m being woken up by crazy dreams (pregnant dreams are so weird…) Now that I’m sleeping on my side, I’ve successfully pinched a nerve in my neck twice now.  The last time it seemed to go away after I put some heat on it, and Paul and my dad both gave me neck rubs.  This time I was up pretty much all night.  Paul fell asleep that night holding a bag of ice on my neck… how cute is he? 🙂

Maternity Clothes? Still just a few maternity shirts, but at the rate I seem to be growing this could be changing soon. 

Wedding Rings? ON!

Stretch Marks? Don’t say that word around here…

Labor Signs? Praying not to have these anytime soon!

What I miss? Pregnancy wise I’m not really missing much… but I am missing these girls back in Tallahassee!!!


Looking forward to? Seeing my husband on Friday!  When you both work at home and you’re ALWAYS together, not seeing him for 4-5 days seems like an eternity…
