Wow, so it's week 19 and I feel huge already! In the baby center update it says "Think you're big now? You'll start growing even faster in the weeks to come." Yikes!!! I'm feeling great for the most part. I am having to sleep on my left side so that my right leg doesn't fall asleep :) The baby is kicking and moving a lot more than Joey did! In fact, when I pick Joey up, Stout Seed # 2 kicks my belly....I guess SS2 is already wanting all of the attention! This should be interesting :) On with the belly pics....
Here I am at 19 weeks with Joey in my belly...you can tell by the decorations on the banister that it was around Christmas time :) I remember thinking about our savior Jesus who was born and how crazy it must have been for Mary to be going through the same process I was going through. She didn't have the books, the internet, and on top of that, she had to deal with the fact that people thought she had cheated on her fiance. Amazing!
Here I am with Stout Seed # 2! Wow, that belly is huge!!! Man am I glad to not have braces this time around! I feel like I look a little bit older this time! Johnny said he thinks my belly button is already starting to poke out...I will have you know that's the angle of the picture and not my belly button sticking out :) I will let you know when the button pops officially!
Here's the news from Baby Center:
How your baby's growing (Week 19):Your baby'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 your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. 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.
