Baby Caterpillar - 19 Weeks

 


We started our progress shoot this week, I'm so excited to do this again! Something to look forward to every six weeks and watch my bump grow! I've got a little bump finally too, so I was pretty excited to show that off too!
19 weeks with Tiley (Jydan) and 19 weeks with Caterpillar.
 
I had a doctors appointment this week, all went well, my fundal height is measuring a bit small, but we already knew bubby is a bit slow at growing so we weren't too worried about that. We have a scan in a week so will be able to see baby's exact measurements again. And we listened to baby's heart rate was gorgeous!! And reassuring!
I also got some stronger meds because I'm still struggling with sickness. This has been a pretty bad sickness week so I'm so so glad to have something stronger!!
 
Symptoms this week:
Hyperemesis.
Colostrum.
Tender Breasts.
Hair & Nail Growth.
Tiredness.
Trouble Staying Asleep.
Movements.
Extra Thirst.
 
Weight gain: 1 & 1/2 kilo.
 
Size of baby: 
About 240grams, and 14.2 cms head to bum!
About the size of a mango!

Baby's doing this week:
Hair on the scalp is starting to sprout, and kidneys are functioning.  And senses are beginning to hit a peek!
 
Time left:
21 weeks... tick tock, tick tock.
 
Next Milestone:
Our next scan on the 10th of November!
 
Guessing baby's gender:
The closer of us finding out the more I'm not sure!!
 
Nickname for baby:
Caterpillar - because of the hungry caterpillar themed nursery.
 
Cravings:
Too busy being sick to crave :/
 
Names:
Undecided on a boys name... Ugh!!
