19 Weeks. It's Growing!

11 Weeks --------------- 19 Weeks


You can really tell now because I am not sucking my stomach in like last time.
The 19 weeks just looks like I have been eating a lot of Girl Scout Cookies. Which I HAVE NOT BEEN doing! No, no. Not me!! And those pants from the 11 weeks picture can no longer be buttoned and are pretty tight.
I ate Rolaids for the first time in my life last night. And I cry, just because. The morning sickness is pretty much gone and I have energy now. My uterus is almost up to my navel and is the size of a large cantaloupe.

At 19 weeks, Baby can now hear! Time for Mozart, Dead Can Dance, and Nine Inch Nails. Now we can talk to Baby and tell it our deep dark secrets. Baby is about 5 1/2 inches from crown of head to kissable heinie. Baby can now pee. It can control it's movements (like sucking it's thumb and picking it's nose) now that the little brain has millions of neurons that are working together and making millions more all the time. Eyebrows, eyelashes, fingerprints, and toenails are all there. All organs are formed and working. Truly a miracle.

Just love watching you (and baby) grow. What a cute little tummy you have. Visit your blog every few weeks to keep up with your progress. Thanks for doing this . . . it's great! And I LOVE the '40s shoes.

Also, thanks for the contact to the Forgotten Coast plein air thing. I'm going and will think of you the entire event.

Have a great time in Maui. I'm sure you'll wear your teeny weeny bikini.
Love you.
P.S. -- If this gets posted twice, sorry . . . my computer hic-up'd just as I started to publish it so I did it again. tee hee.
