Almost halfway there #Pregnancy Week 19

How Far Along: 19 Weeks Pregnant {19 weeks 5 days}
Due Date: June 22nd, 2013
Boy or girl: Big gender reveal to come soon … I know, but I am trying to be a little creative with this reveal and think a little intrigue will be fun!
Bump Picture: Bump, bump, bump {baby}… Bump, bump, bump {baby}… Bump, bump, bump {baby}… I am having a total Sheldon Cooper Big Bang Theory moment. Oh and I took the picture myself again this week {I am sure that ME holding the camera was the first clue}.

Baby Development:  The baby’s sensory development is growing by leaps and bounds! Nerves for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch are all being developed in the baby’s brain.

The baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom. The arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of the body now. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.

19 Weeks Pregnant

Symptoms: I am a little tender. Since my body is growing and getting bigger in preparation of this bundle of joy, it is also becoming a bit tender and sore. Nothing a nice warm shower and some stretching cannot alleviate, but still… was not expecting this so early.

Currently craving: Chocolate and fruit – together. The boys and I made chocolate covered strawberries and now I want to dip everything in chocolate. I will totally be hitting up the fresh fruits in the produce aisle this week at the grocery store.   

Currently Avoiding: I am doing pretty good this week with nothing really making me queasy.

Belly button status: In.

Movement: Feeling little movements every once in a while. No real kicking or rolling still.

Names: We will be revealing the name next week, right after -or may in conjunction with- the big gender reveal.

Any appointments?: In two weeks I meet with my doctor for another appointment.   

Any baby related purchases?: Not yet.

I started doing my Moms Into Fitness prenatal workouts and am loving them so far. They are really upbeat, but man oh man was I sore after my first day of cardio and strength training.  Doing nothing the entire first trimester totally took its toll on my body.
