Baby A is folded in half. Her little leg looks like a frog leg! So cute. Gymnastics????
Baby B the active one so precious all snuggled up!
How far along? 19 Weeks!!
Baby's Size? The Girls are now the size of a mango!
Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil, and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature.
Weight Gain? 8lbs
Maternity Clothes? All maternity pants. Might need to start looking at tops. Mine still fit they are just getting short.
Stretch marks? None!! I just hope it stays this way.
Belly button in or out? It's pretty much even with the rest of the belly.
Sleep? The same, I was told yesterday to STOP sleeping on my back. I don't do it on purpose I just wake up that way. I think its because my hips and shoulders need a break.
Foods I am loving? A little of everything. Still tomatoes with salt and Ice water, lots and lots of ice.
Foods I am hating? Nothing new
