Maternity Monday ~ Week 19

via (and just the right fruit for a Cuban baby)

How far along:  19 weeks

Gender:  So, who knows when we’ll find this out now.  It may happen at our next appointment in November.  The little leg crosser was not giving up the goods!
Pregnancy Symptoms:  Nothing really new on the symptom front this week.
Maternity Clothes:  Still wearing a mix of both maternity and non-maternity clothes.
Movement:  More and more flutters in the evenings this week, but no real solid kicks yet.
Best Moment of the Week:   Not really baby related, but we purchased a new car with baby safety in mind.  Our primary family car was getting up there on the miles so we decided it was time to get something with no miles and a better warranty before winter hit.
Food Cravings: Chocolate ice cream from Coldstone was my must have this week.
Weight Gain:   Still down 10 pounds since my positive pregnancy test.
Days until Due Date:  147
What’s Happening This Week via The
Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might actually get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature.
