Close up of the face and hands 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.

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

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 - 4 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 - 6 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 - 6 days ago
Jamie86 how did your scan go I can't wait for mine tomorrow.

jamie86 - 7 days ago
My anatomy scan is tomorrow! Can't wait to see my baby boy again!

jamie86 - 10 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 - 13 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 - 13 days ago
I tried out the Chinese gender chart, it says boy!

Free2Bmom - 13 days ago
The Chinese gender chart was accurate with both of my babies though. Becky, search Chinese gender chart (I used the one from and put it your age at conception and month of conception. What's that say?

Free2Bmom - 13 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 - 14 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 - 14 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.

beckym - 14 days ago
Free2bmom, you are lucky to be getting a massage, sometimes I have been getting back spasms, usually goes away on its own, just really uncomfortable until they are gone.

beckym - 14 days ago
I always want to watch my traditional pregnancy movies when I am expecting, this may be the first time I won't be doing great that, since they were all on tape and I do t have them anymore, and not on Netflix. They were Look who's talking, one and two, 9 months, and Junior.

beckym - 14 days ago
That is a relief to know this is normal free2bmom, this is my 5th pregnancy, so I am with you on that!

Free2Bmom - 14 days ago
Oh Becky! Thank goodness I'm not the only one! If I move funny or use my stomach muscles to sit up or something I get a contraction. Not painful, just very very tight uterus. I was worried I'd be having a preemie because I only remember that happening after an orgasm with my last pregnancy..... I guess it's normal, I just was weirded out that it was so early. They said on Dr. Google that it's way more common to feel them in your second or third pregnancies than your first, which explains why I didn't remember them with my son. My back and neck are soooooooo stiff this pregnancy ugh, massage on Thursday!

beckym - 14 days ago
19 weeks today! Is anyone having feelings of tightening very minor contractions of the uterus, it feels like very very very minor Braxton hicks contractions, I can't remember if it is normal to experience these this early.

claraxx - 25 days ago
How was your scan Ericalynn ? Mine was lovely had a very nice tech. Baby is confirmed a girl and I'm so excited 😊

raindrop0208 - 29 days ago
Popping back in! My anatomy scan is Wed ... But already know we are have a girl from the blood test. Still can't wait to see my little sweetie. She is an active one!

xEricaLynn - 30 days ago
Hi Clara, my anatomy scan is on Monday too, how exciting! But we have to wait until 3:50pm for the ultrasound. Don't know how I'll make it through the day!

claraxx - 30 days ago
Week 19 yay! My anatomy scan is in two days time so get to see my little one again 💗

beckym - 33 days ago
Lol, woo!

xEricaLynn - 34 days ago
Thanks Becky. I'm also having vaginal pain too, started last night, and have it again today. No spotting, just pain. I googled and it seems to be a normal pregnancy thing too. Yay us, lol.

beckym - 34 days ago
Erica, I get that from time to time, but I found out I had a minor hernia there, a lot of women get that, but it could just be a feeling of minor discomfort that is normal for pregnancy.

xEricaLynn - 34 days ago
Anyone else experiencing pain on or near your belly button? My belly button is sore sometimes. I'm 19w2d, had pain for about 1.5 weeks now.

Ryskay - 35 days ago
I thought that I would jump in here since I will be 19 weeks tomorrow, I'm feeling awesome the morning sickiness it pretty much gone I am starting to get out and do things more and getting really excited to find out what we are having coming after the Easter Hoildays. How is everyone else feeling?

mamagris - 52 days ago
We had our ultrasound on Monday March 2nd and found out that we are not having 1 baby but TWO babies! Twin boys! What a surprise that was for us LOL! We had no idea there were two babies in there! Both look healthy and right on track. Looks like I will be making a lot of trips to the doctor now. - 55 days ago
I'm feeling the baby daily as well. He's definitely getting stronger. I had another ultrasound today and the tech informed me that he is head down...that explains the frequent jabs by my belly button

flybear - 58 days ago
I can pretty much feel baby move every day several times a day now. Yay. How about everyone else?

flybear - 60 days ago
Woohoo. Finally made it to a new week. Lol 12 more days until my big ultrasound. Still feels so far off. Lol

liltyke7 - 62 days ago
Thanks Anything4nikki..Appt went well. Back in 4 weeks. can't wait to see my baby boy Monday! - 63 days ago
Hope yout appt goes well! I know you are excited about your ultrasound....I had mine last week and it was a nice feeling to see the baby in action. He couldn't keep still so I actually have to go back for a follow up so the tech can finish getting the measurements

liltyke7 - 63 days ago
So excited..another baby doc appointment today. next week Monday is the ultrasound!!

liltyke7 - 69 days ago

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

KristiW - 137 days ago
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.

mamaford77 - 144 days ago
19 weeks! woo-hoo! Can't wait until my scan on Wednesday!

sher-baby - 157 days ago
Well we have a 12oz baby boy!! Congrats Mandy!

mandykat760 - 158 days ago
I had my 20 week ultrasound today and the baby is 10oz.

mandykat760 - 159 days ago
I had a 5lb baby and 6lb, this kid will be 10! Haha

sher-baby - 161 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 - 161 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 - 161 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 - 161 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 - 162 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 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 - 162 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 - 162 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.
