The right foot, including the developing bones, are clearly visible in the middle of the screen
Your baby's crown-to-rump length is 5.2 to 6 inches this week. Your baby weighs approximately 7 ounces and will increase its weight more than 15 times between now and birth!
Most women can feel their uterus about a half of an inch below their bellybutton at this point of pregnancy. If you turn to the side, you can really tell that your body is changing! Most women have gained up to 14 pounds now and only 7 ounces of that is your baby! The placenta weighs about 6 ounces and the amniotic fluid that surrounds your baby weighs 11 ounces. Your breasts have increased in weight by 6 ounces each and the uterus has grown to 11 ounces! You may be gaining weight in places other than your abdomen and this may be affecting your posture and sleeping habits.
One of the most amazing aspects of your baby's growth and development is that of the fetal brain. Your baby's brain is one of the first organs to appear. Your baby's oversized head shows the brain's importance in his development. Because the nerves that connect the muscles to the brain have grown into place, your baby's movements are consciously directed. Your baby's ears stand out from the sides of the head and the buds for your baby's permanent teeth appear. Your baby's arms and legs have reached their relative proportions and his feet are approximately one inch long.

Thats how it went for my friends that concieved triplets naturally and surprisingly lol! They had a goal of 24 weeks then a goal of 28 weeks. I think she went into labor and they couldnt stop it at 26 weeks. The girls are home and 4 months now and they are just beautiful! She had a identical set then the third girl. It's really cute because how they name babies A, B, and C is how they named the girls!. Baby A is Ashlynn, Baby B is Brynn, and Baby C is Corlynn!
christinejo86 - 20 days ago
No one can give me a set date. Our first goal is 24 weeks. That is the first time they will have a chance with heavy intervention and. 50% chance of long term issues. Our next goal will be 28 weeks that is when they will have a good chance of survival with a small chance of long term issues. After that is 30 weeks they will have great odds and hopefully few problems while in the nicu. And every day after 30 that i could keep them will be a blessing by God. Each day after 30 weeks they will decelope more fat and do more practice breathing and have that much easier of a time on the outside.
3rdandfinalscutt - 20 days ago
Christine-yay how exciting things are going well. when do they say you might go how early with four? Seems like around 30 weeks or so?
christinejo86 - 20 days ago
Yay for 19 weeks!! Babies are growing good and so far no signs of labor. Just need to keep it like this for a while. 35 days till our first goal of viability. Im not doing much lately its unconfortable to walk to much and if everyone leaves me alone i could sleep all day lol.
3rdandfinalscutt - 22 days ago
kentsmommy-yes im enjoying every moment because this will definitely be our last baby and then we just get to enjoy our lil family of five :) They didn't schedule my ultrasound till im 22 weeks on December 10th. but we aren't finding out the gender so just a cple weeks more to make sure baby is healthy :)
kentsmommy - 22 days ago
Last day in week 19 and finally there is some activity here:) I may stay in week 19 so I have someone to talk to:)
Templingirl - Good luck at the u/s! That's always so much fun.
3rdandfinal - I'm in the same boat; half way through with my 3rd baby. It's kind of bitter sweet knowing that I'll never feel those first kicks again or get excited for the gender u/s. Oh well, I'm sure that we'll have a ton to look forward to as our kids grow!
templingirl - 22 days ago
19 weeks today, wow. Next week will be lots of fun: 20 weeks on wednesday, thanksgiving on thursday and ultrasound on friday. I think it will be a good week! Now to just get this week over with....
emily82 - 39 days ago
Congrats Tazzy! My scan is on Wednesday, was pushed back a week...I think it's a girl and will be totally shocked if it's a boy (not sure why?) haha but totally happy with either, already have a boy & girl. Caniac I've been extra thirsty too, and also tossing and turning at night...bring on week 20 - almost half way there!! :)
CaniacMom - 40 days ago
Congrats Tazzy! Little boys are so much fun :) Work is going ok I guess. I'm going stir crazy in the office, I'd much rather be on regular duties. But I only have to do this for another 4 1/2 months, so I'm sure I can get through it. Is anyone else starting to have trouble sleeping? I'm normally a stomach sleeper and have finally reached the point where it isn't comfortable, so I'm tossing and turning a lot. I'm actually more comfortable on the couch than in my bed, but I don't like sleeping away from my husband. I've also been extremely thirsty the last few days.
tazzysmumma - 42 days ago
been raining here too but it held off for the kids to get out. Im just up waiting for husband to get back for the weekend hes living away on placement at the mo and im missing him like mad. hes home early for the scan in the morning i have 13 hours till it. Im also in a group and there are horror stories everywhere and including when i look up any of my concerns on google. if i find out the gender tomorrow it will be a bonus but the main thing i want is a healthy baby. bubs has been wiggling lots so i feel a bit reassured. I will post tomorrow with what happens. hows work going caniac? Kentsmommy i hope baby isnt shy and gives you the money shot! :D Daffy welcome to 19 weeks :D x
kentsmommy - 42 days ago
Hi ladies, in from week 17 since I think I'm the only one in that week:) I have my anatomy scan on Wednesday the 6th. Can't wait to find out if this little bean is a boy or girl. I feel like its a boy but really don't have a preference one way or the other. I hope everyone has a happy halloween! I'm looking forward to getting my two monsters out for trick or treating:)
CaniacMom - 42 days ago
Tazzy, I hear you about getting anxious. I joined a Facebook group for women due in March, and in the last 3 or 4 days several women have gotten bad news at the anatomy scan and several more have lost their babies. I'm trying to keep things in perspective that there are over 400 members and that the odds are in our favour that everything will be just perfect. Feeling lots of movement, which is helping to put my mind at ease a bit. Happy Halloween everyone! They are calling for rain all day here, but I'm sure it won't stop my son from having a blast tonight.
daffymtz22 - 43 days ago
Hello everyone. 19 weeks today. Super excited. Hope everyone is well. Can't wait to find out what I'm having. 2 weeks until my appt!
Rach3017 - 44 days ago
Hi everyone!! I'm from week 10...I've been researching 'The Ramzi Method'. Just wondering to those that got an ultrasound around 6-7 weeks, and now know what they are having...if it worked?!
tazzysmumma - 44 days ago
Im pretty sure its a girl but my husband is convinced we are having a boy! im on the count down 3 days! lol shame that i am wishing my life away but im so damn impatient. How exciting for your husband and its great seeing the baby so much bigger isnt it. I get a bit anxious because its the big check of all the organs but trying to put it to the back of my mind x
CaniacMom - 45 days ago
Yay Tazzy, I'm sure you must be excited to find out. Do you have a gut feeling about what you're having? I go for my ultrasound on Nov 7th. Not finding out the gender but excited to see baby again and for hubby to see baby for the first time.
tazzysmumma - 46 days ago

Baltobaby, I am SO very sorry. =( My heart goes out to you.
Baltobaby - 57 days ago
Ladies - I have not posted in a little while. Sadly, I lost the baby at 18 weeks. I just wanted to say goodbye and to wish all of you the best on your journeys. I hope you all have healthy and beautiful babies. All the best.
stinabina - 59 days ago
Almost to 19 weeks! We found out last Wednesday, we are having boy #4! My 2 older boys were a lil disappointed, I have to admit, I was too, since this will be our last. However, I am just extremely happy that he is healthy! Now my younger son, who will be 3 this month will have a buddy to grow up with! Hope all you ladies are doing well. If you haven't already, come join us at IAP Mama's 2014 on Facebook. Great ladies and great support!

AussieDanni - 65 days ago
Had a scan today, bub is well, unsure why I've been spotting, and tech said not 100% definate, but looks like we are having a girl! I was so sure it was a boy :p Super excited for another girl though! Have my big scan Monday so hopefully will get a better look!
Congrats on the girl lalapet!!
lalapet - 65 days ago
After two boys I found out today I'm having a.......GIRL!!!! I couldn't believe doc, he laughed and said, what, you didnt think you could make girls? LOL
domido - 65 days ago
scan in 3 days days wahoo! will be 20+2 :) would be lovely to finally get a son but so long as baby is healthy we are happy. my daughters cant wait now, one says boy the other says girl so i guess one of them will be right ha ha
AussieDanni - 66 days ago
I have spotting today :( gonna see dr tomorrow, feel a bit paranoid, cause I think it was from straining (TMI). It happened straight after, and is minimal, but this is my 4th pregnancy, I have one living child and an anterior placenta so don't get to feel much of bub! I need some medical reassurance :p hope everyone is having a good week! 6 sleeps til my big scan! So excited?
HMS - 67 days ago

Is anyone else is experiencing short of breathing when speaking or doing house work, picking up toys, walking in the park. Last couple of days I feel I am getting tired easily. when I lay or sit I am fine. We are moving into a bigger house, this move isn't helping either.
JSmummy - 70 days ago
everley- I am so happy about it still little scared, after two boys will I manage a girl? It is scary! Sorry to hear about your placenta previa, hope it moves up, before your next appointment.
everley - 70 days ago
Also got told I have placenta previa and will have to go back at 32 weeks for another scan. Have appoint with Ob in 2 weeks, so will see what they say- fingers crossed it moves up because I've had 2 easy labours and don't want a Csection!
everley - 70 days ago
JSmummy congratulations!! Such good news- how lucky are we! I'm still not 100% convinced- think its because they told me my last son was a girl, so we had a 3D scan done last week and was told it is definitely a girl.... I'm still a little scared to believe it! That didn't stop me from shopping up a storm at target! I'm feeling good, but definitely really popping out now and feeling a bit stretched- also feeling my little one moving, which is so nice!
JSmummy - 71 days ago
HI everyone, I am in a big shock! After two boys we are having a GIRL. I still can't believe it. 16 week scan told us 90% chance for a boy. At 19 weeks it is a girl! What are the chances.
Love78 - 84 days ago
Going to see a specialist wednesday for my placenta previa.
hopeful28 - 84 days ago
Hello everyone I jus have a quick question now my last ob appointment was at 15 weeks I believe and my ob said my stomach was meaursing two weeks ahead so today I used my pocket doppler and I found my baby heart beat 4 inches above my belly button? Could it be because my urterus is measuring bigger? And it's a fact it's the baby heart beat I used dopplers for three of my pregnancy and I also pick up the same heart beat about 3 inches under my belly button but more over to the left
