I totally thought that today was 18 wks until i got my weekly email update saying 19 wks!! wow this is going buy so fast. Baby girl is kicking up a storm now. I love feeling her little kicks it makes me smile every time i feel her. it's just crazy knowing that there is something totally alive in my belly! 

Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid. Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.

Jesse is going to be so siked on the hearing part.  every week he has been talking and singing to my belly. Finally jelly bean can hear him. I hope she likes his singing.  We also started reading Narnia to her. It's kinda just a cute thing Jesse and i do to past the time but i think she listens. 

I was suppose to have my first appt with our doula tonight but she had to cancel because another mommy went into labor tonight. I wish i was that far along already. I cant wait to meet our baby doll. 

I'm getting really frustrated with clothing lately. im at that point wear my regular clothing isn't fitting anymore but im not wear maternity cloths yet. I totally dont know how to dress for my body right now. I'm a total fish out of water. I have to admit i just feel like i look fat not pregnant. I want my belly to be more obvious. I know, I know i'll get there. I grateful that im still small because if not i'd be that much bigger in the end but im just in the awkward stage right now. 

so i know i need to start posting weekly pictures of my belly. I havent been taking pictures yet but im gonna try to start. 

here is a picture of me a few weeks ago before i was really showing. (we were going to the beach)
that was two weeks ago. 

this is tonight 

so im starting to show!! haha
