{my pregnancy} 19 weeks

  • Baby bump is starting to show. It's amazing how much can change in one week. Although I have to say that this picture was taken inmediately after I just had dinner.

  • Weight gain in one week was 1 pound (0.4535 kilos), the recommended amount according to the doctor.

  • We had a Level 2 Ultrasound to's a boy! L is going to be so excited to have a baby brother, because in his words "What is he going to do with a sister?"

  • Baby F is the size of a mango. Size and weight are normal with a strong heartbeat. We have to go back to complete the measurements in a couple of weeks because baby F didn't want to cooperate and change positions.  Apparently he was taking a nap and didn't want to get bothered.

  • I added watermelon to my cravings this week. For some reason I just wanted watermelon today after some split pea soup. I know, not the yummiest of combinations.

  • Getting proper sleep is getting harder. I wake up many times at night, to pee, to change positions. I'm having a hard time waking up in the morning.

  • Still wearing my regular clothes. I think I'll have to buy some maternity jeans or pants though. It seems leggings won't be enough to cover my growing belly.

  • I'll start yoga classes this weekend. Looking forward to it.


  1. It's a boy! Congratulations! I think L will be a great big brother. And I hear yoga classes are so helpful. They'll make you stay in shape, relax, improve your energy, etc, etc. Looking good by the way.
