19 Weeks

What a weird picture! Super cramped in there... no wonder I'm feeling some movement now.

From BabyCenter.com (“she” changed to “he”):

“Your baby’s sensory development is exploding! His brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that he may be able to hear your voice now, so don’t be shy about reading aloud, talking to him, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.

"Baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom." {BabyCenter.com}

Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. His arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of his body now. His kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on his scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on his skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.” {BabyCenter.com}

My next doctor’s appointment is tomorrow and I’ll have another sonogram at 20 weeks, so in the next week or so.


Fun delivery gowns

Fun for the delivery of a baby boy...

In perusing through all the preggo mags, I saw an ad for these delivery gowns with fun patterns on them.

At first I was like, who gives a crap? You get a “free” one from the hospital.

Then as I marinated on it in my mental database, I starting thinking that it is actually a fun idea because I’ll be photographed after the delivery and I look horrible in white. Plus, in all that agony of childbirth, I read that it’s soothing to personalize your hospital room and whole experience.

I dunno… weird? Fun?
