19 Weeks - Our Little Mango

This week our little wonder weighs about 1/2 pound. I can now feel the baby moving and wiggling once in a while but not consistently. The baby is starting to look like a little human and is getting the white coating on the skin to protect it from the amniotic fluid. Which is a good thing, otherwise the baby will come out looking all wrinkled, like he/she has been in the bath for the last 5 months. Isn't God amazing how he designed us. Even down to the tiny details of a protective coating on our skin so we don't get all wrinkled before we are born. There is just no way these kinds of thing "just happen".

Anyway, I am feeling well. My sister-in-law, who is about to give birth any moment, gave me a few much needed maternity pants and tops. Thanks Keri. It's nice to have more than 1 pair of pants to wear. I have gained 9 lbs to date. I have been eating a lot, but still don't "feel" like eating much but I do anyway and then I find that I eat quite a bit. I think that is about it for this week.
