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.

@amy praying all is well with your little one. They should not tell people bad news when it is a weekend and they can't find out what's up. That is just not nice.

amy110 - 4 days ago
Thank you Sparks. We'll take all the prayers we can get. So nervous for tomorrow!

sparks717 - 5 days ago
Amy, I will be praying it all resolves and that your little one will be just fine. :)

amy110 - 6 days ago
Thank you Sparks. Got initial word back - echogenic bowel, or calcification in the intestines. Never heard of it before, and there is nothing worse than trying to look up stuff on the internet when something could be wrong with little one :( :( I'm going in for a 'consult' with the ultrasound physician this Thursday, who will give us more information. Preliminary information from the ob/gyn said that most of the time these cases resolve itself (some sort of viral infection baby may have, sometimes it's even excessive shadowing from sensitive ultrasound equipment), but it could be indicative of a chromosomal disorder :'( So so scared for little one.

sparks717 - 6 days ago
Amy, I hope that everything is okay with your little one.

amy110 - 9 days ago
Got our ultrasounds done yesterday. Received a voicemail message from my ob's office stating that the utrasound physician has reviewed the pictures and wants to go over the results with me personally through appointment. This message being received right before the offices close on a Friday. Was informed to call them Monday to schedule a meeting 'hopefully within the week'. :( Not cool to do that right before the weekend when I can't reach anyone. Obviously not good news somehow. :'(

sparks717 - 14 days ago
Congratulations Lunamama! I love the name Luna! We still haven't found out if it's a girl or boy. Hopefully I will have an ultrasound in early August and find out. I'm definitely leaning more toward the tired than the energy bursts this week.

Lunamamasita - 15 days ago
mommashavin11- I personally like Vivienne claire if you are still looking for input!

Lunamamasita - 15 days ago
half way their! We are having a girl! Her name will be Luna Natalia-Tatiana Huddle, and we can't wait to meet her! I am back and forth between very tired and sore to being full of nesting energy! 'DH' said we need to talk about my cleaning addiction lol!

mommashavin11 - 33 days ago
We are so excited to find out its another girl, but as our seventh daughter, we ate stuck on names. please help us decide, Vivienne Claire or Ava Juliette? Thanks so much!

mommashavin11 - 33 days ago
Its a GIRL!!! 7 girls 4 boys. wow, for sure i thought boy this time! so far gained 2 lbs. Anyone else find out gender this week?

lilgibber22@aol.com - 37 days ago
Hello week 19, almost half way there!

monkeymomma - 62 days ago
Hello 19 wks!!! And hello gorgeous nails! My nails have never been like this, even with my other 2 pregnancies. It's kinda hard to get used to them!

PaulaSoon2B8 - 69 days ago
4 lbs so far, and baby confirmed girl 100%....now hoping my OB will take me on, even though I have movedut of the region...I don't know what i'll do if im declined...he's my comfort zone!!

TaraR - 74 days ago
Yay Paula!! I'm excited to hear! Hope it all goes well!

PaulaSoon2B8 - 74 days ago
Going for my ultrasound follow-up appointment with the doctor...then finally my referral to my OB...that's when its all going to really kick in!! He will be so surprised to see us yet again...lol :) Hoping my ultrasound results come back nice and clear!

TaraR - 75 days ago

paulasoon2b8 - 76 days ago

How much weight have you ladies gain so far?

PaulaSoon2B8 - 80 days ago
I am so with you on the stretch marks...like I said..Im proud to wear them :) Its hard work being pregnant, giving birth and raising babies...they are like our stripes of honour :)

1morefor4 - 80 days ago
Thanks ladies... I just did a blog update about my midwife appointment that I had yesterday. So feel free to read that. As far as, stretch marks I just embrace mine. My mom didn't have any. My sister didn't have any until after she delivered her first and I got mine while pregnant but only 1 or 2 and then after my first was born and my stomach went down the stretch marks popped up like spider webs. I have them on my stomach, boobs, and thigh/butt region. It is what it is.

RowdyRandi - 80 days ago
Rissalyn i used lotion and oils like they were going outta style with my first pregnancy and made it all the way to my last trimester before seeing a single mark but once one showed up its like my stomach suddenly exploded cuz by the end my tummy was covered. Oh well its not avoidable really and the end result makes it all worth it

RowdyRandi - 80 days ago
Kekea i think its another girl but i could be completely wrong. Either way is fine as long as baby is healthy and as long as we can see in between those legs to find out. I hate surprises and i need to know so we can start getting ready

PaulaSoon2B8 - 81 days ago
Rissalyn....although I am sure the support howse may have helped alittle...there are numberous factors when it comes to stretch arks...if you're going to get them...you can't completely stop them...Everyones skin make up is different...its all about the elasticity in the skin...as well as how you are carrying the baby....and the shape and size of the body...best advice is just to keep your skin moist...coconut oil, mineral oil, vitamin e oil....are all great affordable things to try...I am on baby # 8, and my tummy looks like a globe with all the lines...but I am proud of each and every one!!

rissalynn0416 - 82 days ago
The 20th is right around the corner! Im jelaous. I have an appointment that day but no U/S. Do any of you have any recomendations for stretch marks? My moms stomach looks like she never had kids at all cause she wore support hose..Literally not one stretch mark or loose skin. Its already so hot is there something else that works just the same that isnt pantyhose?

kekea - 83 days ago
Congrats 1morefor4. Rissalynn0416 we are having a girl. Rowdyrandy the 20th will be here before you know it, what is your hunch?

RowdyRandi - 83 days ago
I'm so jealous of some of yall finding out genders! We hopefully will finally get to know on the 20th which is next week. This week my dd is turning two. So thankfully party prep will probably keep my mind occupied while we wait for that u/s

1morefor4 - 83 days ago
Just had my anatomy scan. And I wrote a new blog with details. We're team pink over here.

rissalynn0416 - 84 days ago
Not yet! Its killing me! We find out the 26th. I just had my first appt and was totally cool with waiting after I heard a heartbeat and saw a very active baby inside lol. However now it seems to be taking forever. What about you?

kekea - 85 days ago
Rissalynn0416 Yes it is. The site had changed a lot since I first joined 8 years a go but I still enjoy it. Try to take it easy when you w perfect those growing pains. Our bodies are so ooh amazing. I enjoy being pregnant (for the most part ) but I'm thinking this is our last. Do you know what the sex of the baby is?

rissalynn0416 - 85 days ago
Thank you Kekea! You too girl! Ive been waiting a long time for this beautiful experience, this site is amazing! Im on here all day, amongst others. This one is cool because your week for week with other women but its not super crowded. Ive been having some dull pain from my uterus stretching the last few days. Thankfully it stopped over the last 20 min or so. So crazy to feel and watch your body change!

kekea - 86 days ago
Rissalynn0416 congrats on your first pregnancy. This site was like my second bible during my first pregnancy. Lol.

rissalynn0416 - 87 days ago
Hey everyone! Just signed up so I can finally get in on the convos I read daily. Im 19 weeks today with my first very special pregnancy. Congrats to everyone here on your little dumplings! This seems to be a great forum thats very positive and non-sassy. I saw my baby for the first time yesterday also first time hearing the heart beat. So much relief to know all is well in there. I have no symptoms aside from minor constipation so Ive been worrying myself sick...especially after hitting google up so many times. Lots of good advice ive gotten from everyone in previous weeks to keep me calm until I got into this very busy very popular high risk doctor. Thanks for being so helpful and nice to meet everyone!

kekea - 88 days ago
How is everyone feeling This week?

mamalira - 89 days ago
Holy almost half way through!

beckym - 91 days ago
Congrats on the good u/s aussie, I am team green as well, til the end by choice, it is exciting not knowing, but will be tougher at the end as either we buy everything neutral, or make a mad rush to buy things while he or she is at the hospital

austinjeanxo - 97 days ago
Just left my dr appointment and dr changed my due date again. And is sticking with this one. So sept 20th it is! All labs and ultrasounds have come back normal so far! I have one more ultrasound on the 18th =} and in 2 weeks I do my glucose test. Then no more needles till delivery! Lmao! I'm excited everything is seeming okay. While we are still team green I am guessing girl <3

beckym - 99 days ago
Holtz, they couldn't see some of anthonys organs in my first pregnancy, the anatomy ultrasound we had was in the 18th or 19th week, it is harder to see all organs at this time, they scheduled another ultrasound, and everything was fine in that one.

holz8519 - 101 days ago
So i want for my 20 week scan yesterday. Baby was moving a lot. He was breech when sono started and completely flipped to head down by end. The tech could not find baby's stomach so I need to go back in 2 weeks so they can recheck. Has anyone else ever had this? The tech said everything else looked good and baby was measuring in the 60 percentile. Thoughts, Ideas reassurance???

jamie86 - 103 days ago
Holz- It went great! Baby boy is measuring perfectly and hb was a good strong 145bpm. He is frank breech at the moment and had his back to us so took some work getting him to move to get all the pics she needed to make sure everything looked good. I changed my profile pic to one of the 4d pics I got today.

holz8519 - 103 days ago
Jamie86 how did your scan go I can't wait for mine tomorrow.

jamie86 - 104 days ago
My anatomy scan is tomorrow! Can't wait to see my baby boy again!

jamie86 - 107 days ago
That chart was right for my first 3 kids. It was wrong with my 2 angels I had last year and this baby. I swore by it before though lol.

beckym - 110 days ago
The Chinese gender chart thing is fun. I put in all of my kids and it was right about all of them. It is probably just a coincidence though, but still neat to try!

beckym - 110 days ago
I tried out the Chinese gender chart, it says boy!

Free2Bmom - 110 days ago
The Chinese gender chart was accurate with both of my babies though. Becky, search Chinese gender chart (I used the one from thebump.com) and put it your age at conception and month of conception. What's that say?

Free2Bmom - 110 days ago
I had genetics and a gender scan to confirm and I'm 100% pregnant with a girl and her heartbeat is always around the 140 mark and when I was pregnant with my son his heartbeat was always high like 160-180. I had asked my fertility specialist about it with my last pregnancy and he said the only time he sees the heartbeat thing is accurate is close to delivery.... Like within a day or two.

jamie86 - 111 days ago
Heart rate is a myth even though some swear by it. It's just coincidence that it was correct. My boys hr is above 150 and that supposedly means girl. My girls were between 135-145 and that's supposed to be boy range.

beckym - 111 days ago
At the doctors office they said the babies heartbeat was 146, my mom is convinced it's a boy, I can't remember if that method was ever accurate with my others, so I wanted to ask you all if this was ever accurate for previous children of yours in the past.
