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.

19 weeks today, this is half way for me! If anyone wants to join a group I created I have called it 2015 new mums on Facebook xxxx

Almost half way there!!!! This is such a great time of year to have a lil bun in the oven! After the holidays I will really start the planning for this little girl. Even though she is baby #3 and baby girl #3 for me I am super excited about doing the nursery up for her. I did already get her 'coming home from the hospital' outfit.

Well we have a 12oz baby boy!! Congrats Mandy!
mandykat760 - 29 days ago
I had my 20 week ultrasound today and the baby is 10oz.
mandykat760 - 30 days ago
I had a 5lb baby and 6lb, this kid will be 10! Haha
sher-baby - 32 days ago
Lol...ya I don't mind 38.5 weeks!! Lol! They gain weight soo fast towards the end and I feel like this baby will weigh more!
babylove5 - 32 days ago
Sher I know what you mean, my 3rd was born at 35 weeks and he was right at 6 pounds. He had to have a mask to help him breathe for a day but he was healthy! My next I thought would be born early too, but he made it all the way to 41 weeks and was 8 pounds. I was miserable! I hope this one is born at 39 weeks exactly!
sher-baby - 33 days ago
She was early but I tore too! And she was soo little! so now I'm really scared if this baby is any bigger!!! But she was born at 37weeks...I know that's scary to have a preterm baby but believe me, my lady part was thankful!
babylove5 - 33 days ago
Sher your daughter was small. Was she born early? My last weighed 8 pounds and when I got to the hospital already dilated I was afraid to push him out. I was trying to push him out for a hour before I finally got the nerve to do it! I tore pretty bad and they had to stich me back up down there. It had happened at every birth but they normally cut me down there, this dr just let me rip. It's good they can just go right in and sew you back up.
sher-baby - 33 days ago
Babylove-I agree! As soon as Christmas is over, baby planning and prepping will be in full swing for us! I am a lil nervous about how I'll feel later on. I feel ok now, but my back aches everyday already...I'm still getting Braxton hicks! So that part has be a little worried! With my daughter, I didn't feel any effects of being pregnant until maybe the last month and a half!! Nothing like this pregnancy! I feel pressure on my lady part already...my hips get stiff and I really have to stretch them out. Maybe I was just lucky with my daughter. She was little too..only 5lbs 11oz at birth and 17' Long. I don't think I'll be that lucky this time around! Lol question tho!!! Does any one feel a pulse on their belly??? If I put my hand on my belly, I feel my heart beating! Kinda creepy but hopefully normal'ish!! Lol
sher-baby - 33 days ago
Roo-you may have already tried this, but I use a heating pad on med setting for my back. I too suffer from some bad back pain...mine is right in my last vertebrae and the pain aches into my butt cheeks. If I'm on my feet too long, it hurts! Then when I sit for even 15mins, I wish that I never sat down, the pain is soo bad. Good luck tho...I don't know about that medication, so I can't be of much more help! :-)
babylove5 - 33 days ago
If the next 20 weeks go by as fast as the first our babies will be here in the blink of a eye!! Roo I had to get a cavity filled at 30 weeks and my baby was fine. They used a lot of numbing medication. I would be afraid to take it every day, you never know what kind of side effects it might have. I would just do it when you have to take it.
roo27 - 34 days ago
Hey ladies. I'm looking for some advice, this week due to horrendous back and pelvic pain over the last few weeks (to the point where I can't walk) my doctor has prescribed me strong co-codamol. Now I know you're not meant to take codine while pregnant and he did tell me to limit the use but I'm still not entirely comfortable with taking it. Anyone else been on it while pregnant?
supermom87 - 34 days ago
Everyone else talking about how time is flying by I feel like this pregnancy is dragging along and April will not get here I'm so ready to meet my baby girl have my tubes tied and get back to a normal life well as normal as can be after having another baby
Sunshinebaby8 - 34 days ago
19 weeks already!!! this one is flying by!! speaking of food.. I can NOT get enough cajun spice! I put it on EVERYTHING...lol. My family thinks I'm nuts!
supermom87 - 35 days ago
Baby girl doing good so excited 😊
sher-baby - 36 days ago
I did a 3d u/s with my daughter...I'm not sure this if I'll do it again this time...it's too expensive here!! We may just have to settle for the reg u/s
supermom87 - 36 days ago
I go for another ultrasound today at the specialist for a more evasive ultrasound than my ob does in her office praying it all goes well take care everyone glad see ya'll are doing well so far well wishes to everyone 😊
babylove5 - 36 days ago
My boys were super excited w my last baby! I may take them to my scheduled anatomy scan, even though we got the free scan already to see we were having a boy. They got me in late it's the 20. Is anyone doing the 3 d ultra sound? I love seeing how developed they are. I am going to see if my friend will do it for free.
sher-baby - 37 days ago
My lil guy is strong. I feel kicks everyday, sometimes on the outside! My u/a is on the 21st so we'll see how that goes. We are bringing my daughter and I'm sure she'll be super excited!
babylove5 - 37 days ago
I am still waking up to my little guy kicking like crazy, but recently I am feeling the kicks to my bladder and even my cervix. It is quite uncomfortable. I wish I could get him to only kick while facing away from my organs... Lol
supermom87 - 37 days ago
Hi ladies hope everyone is doing well glad to be in week 19 almost halfway there
machala-b - 37 days ago
Spacystaci thanks, I hope all goes well at your scan when u go...
email@example.com - 37 days ago

machala-b - 38 days ago
19 weeks today yay! Had my anatomy scan yday and my baby boy is doing great and healthy as can be thank God. How's everyone??
babylove5 - 38 days ago
So I had two french fries before bed with lots of hot pepper spice sprinkled on them. I crave spices when prego w my boys. I was so bloated from all the seasoning I couldn't stand it. I have to enjoy it now at the halfway point, in another 10 weeks I'm going to be uncomfortable, and I won't be able to eat as much. Lol
firstname.lastname@example.org - 38 days ago
I love reading all of the Gender Reveals!! My appointment is next week, 11/20! I will announce in the 20 week forum!
floydianslip2 - 39 days ago
Babylove, I think that one of my favorite parts of pregnancy is that it’s okay to have the tummy, and it’s actually cute, lol! I also like the eating part, and am kind of bummed that this time around I haven’t had any real cravings or increased appetite. But it’s still pretty early and I’m sure that it’s coming soon! I’m super proud of myself though, I’ve spend the last three days completely de-cluttering my house! I’ve cleaned out three closets, two kids rooms, and one bathroom, donated 7 bags of clothes and three boxes of toys, and thrown out 4 bags of stuff not good enough for the Goodwill. I’m still not done yet, but I’m feeling so much better already! It’s driving DH nuts, but oh well!
babylove5 - 39 days ago
I am 19 weeks and loving it, other than the slight pressure on my bladder! I am using this pregnancy as a excuse to eat things I normally wouldn't like bacon, French fries, and I normally only eat fish. This baby is probably 16 ounces already. This is the only time I can Hv a bump on my tummy and not worry! Lol
Dec Baby - 41 days ago
Rjean...totally agree with you;) hope you manage to avoid the sickness! Did you get a flu shot? I would recommend it...I got the flu at 11 weeks and seriously, that whole week I thought I was gonna die😩...I'm so glad we are past the flu season now...hello summer😉
Dec Baby - 41 days ago
Congratulations Beth! Great name too...love it! We are still working out our names...I think we have a girls name and we have a list of boys names but nothing that I really feel I love yet! I guess that is half the fun...coming up with a name you love:))
babylove...I wasn't even sure that I ovulated in the month I concieved (obviously I did)...so I can't even guess for boy or girl! But that sounds like fun if you know your cycle;)
RJean - 42 days ago
Congrats Beth! What a lovely name for a girl! And as far as predicting babies genders...I would love to use that method but I've never charted ovulation or dates of bding so I have no chance of that method as neat as it sounds. On the downside right now, my whole family has a terrible cold. Sickness should be outlawed during pregnancy :(
babylove5 - 42 days ago
Congrats Beth! That's awesome you have a name picked out. My hubby picked out the name Jacob Ryan for our baby. I like Eli since we call our youngest Evan. I thought Eli and Evan but he seems to be set on that name. For those of you that haven't found out yet. You can know what you are having based on when you ovulate and how close to that you had sex. I ovulate on the 14th and had sex on the 13th which produced 4 boys. With my daughter I had sex on the 10 and ovulated on the 14. The only problem with this is sometimes you ovulate late or early.
BethQ - 42 days ago
I'm thrilled to annnounce that we're having another little girl! That makes our house teo boys, two girls! Her name will be Eliza Charlotte.
BethQ - 43 days ago
Mine's in 12 hours! I am so excited! I think we've come up with some names either way, finally!
RJean - 43 days ago
My screen is a week from Friday! I still have no inclination as to which gender I'll have...I will be surprised either way :)
floydianslip2 - 44 days ago
Thanks ladies! He already weighs in at 11 oz, so I'm thinking he's going to possibly be a big boy! We don't have a name yet, hopefully soon! So who's next up for the gender screen?
babylove5 - 44 days ago
Congrats Floy on your little boy! I know you are glad to have everything! It's easier having all the same since they tend to like the same things. Have you got a name picked out yet?
floydianslip2 - 45 days ago
Had our scan yesterday, it's another boy!!! WOO HOO!!!
BethQ - 46 days ago
Rjean--always quiet in here it seems. The old days were much busier I think. We find out on Friday what kind of baby we're having! Super excited.
RJean - 46 days ago
It's quiet in here! Hello week 19! I'm super excited to start hearing about genders soon!
1st.time.momma - 58 days ago
Well I'm excited only 1 more week and i get to see my baby again.
babybubbles88 - 61 days ago
Hello, I am finally 19 weeks! I'm so excited! I get to find out what I am having Tuesday. I am doing a surprise gender cake :)
email@example.com - 101 days ago
konepich - I'm glad he did well. that must have been a relief! We went a week and a bit ago to a gender assessment that I paid for because I'm very impatient hehee...we are 90% sure it's a GIRL! However there's that small chance there was still something hiding in there so she didn't want to say 100% because baby was so small..so we are going Friday for our actual 20 week ultrasound and hoping to hear the same results! I really feel that she's a girl from day one so i'm pretty confident.however you never know!!! We have a little boy already and would be delighted to have one of each..but of course just as blessed to have another baby boy..!
