19 Week Update

May 5, 2017 – 19 Weeks

Baby is as big as an heirloom tomato this week, and he’s doing great! His arms and legs are now much more proportionate to the rest of his body, and he’s looking more and more like the baby we’ll meet in 20 weeks or so. Neurons are now connected between baby’s muscles and her brain. As a result, he’s far nimbler, and able to move better than ever.

We had another appointment today and a level 2 sonogram. We saw baby up close and personal. We saw his spine, heart (all four chambers), 10 fingers and 10 toes, his brain, and much more! He is weighing in at 10 ounces. He was moving like crazy. When we started the sonogram, he was breach and by the end, he was sideways. I have not felt him move yet, but hoping to feel this little guy soon.

Momma is feeling great. I finally made it to buy some maternity clothes! I was able to go to work super comfortable this week. The maternity pants seem to make me look more pregnant than ever (or maybe just because I am bigger). Either way, I can get used to wearing button and zipper free pants! I found some great pants at Motherhood Maternity on sale. They fit so well that I got them in three colors! They are the Secret Fit Belly Skinny Ankle and less than $20/pair.

We will be heading to Indiana in a month for a good friend’s wedding. Mom is having a baby shower for us then! We can’t wait to see family and good friends while celebrating baby Lama. Hopefully we will get to see some of you! Here are some photos from today:
