Peanut - Week Nineteen and Her Name!

Today is - Monday, March 25th, 2013

How far along - 19 weeks

Baby is the size of  - A Mango

Baby is - A girl!! 

Total Weight Gain - 12lbs. 

What's going on with Baby - This week her sensory development is exploding! Her brain is creating areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision & touch. 
Her permanent teeth buds are forming behind the already formed milk teeth buds! Research suggests that Peanut is now able to hear in the womb which completely blows my mind :)

What's going on with Mummy - I'm still waiting to feel that 2nd trimester glow! I now officially only have 2 pairs of trousers that fit me. 

Maternity clothing - Yes with trousers. I need to buy some more though. I can still get away with mostly normal tops. 

Sleep - I've stopped feeling so tired during the day but I get tired earlier at night. I seem to fall asleep okay but most nights I wake up in the middle of the night for at least an hour. I'm looking forward to James finishing school on Thursday for Easter so that I don't have to wake up at 6.30am in the morning. 

Movement - This week she had me worried. After feeling movement for around 2.5-3 weeks, all of a sudden I felt nothing for three days. I knew it was still early on but the fact that I had been feeling little kicks and then it suddenly stopped, my anxiety went into overdrive. Thankfully my scan showed us that everything was okay and sods law, literally two hours after my scan I felt a load of movement. She is obviously a stubborn little one. I think at the moment she wiggles around more than kicks. It's cute whatever it is.

Food cravings/Aversions - Nothing apart from Beef Monster Munch sounds good. Although yesterday morning I made Eggy Bread for breakfast and it was D-E-LICIOUS :) 

Symptoms -

Morning Sickness - Still there on and off. 

Acne - I'm going to try making some homemade face masks to see if they help. 

Ligament pain - This is on and off and not really causing me too much bother. 

How is this pregnancy different from the first - My morning sickness was a thing of the past with James at this point. It hasn't been too bad this week but it still sneaks up on me out of nowhere. 

Also by this point I was feeling more frequent movement with James. 

Best moments of the past week - 

Getting to have my ultrasound. It was worth every penny and the fact that we got to see her in 4D was an added bonus. 
Finding out that we are having a beautiful little girl! How lucky am I to have one of each.

And finally.....

We've had names picked out since I was about nine weeks pregnant. {We were the same with James} I was thinking about not announcing the name until she was born but then I realised that I would never be able to keep it quiet for that long! 

So, introducing..

James is named after Anthony's Grandfather and Emily is from my Great Grandmother. Victoria is my sisters middle name. 

I love that both of our children have names passed down from members of our family. 

I am so in love with her already!
