One more update

I am 19 weeks pregnant today. I feel little flutterings in my tummy almost every day now, most often in the evening. I'm looking forward to feeling some big kicks and turns.

At 19 weeks the baby is starting to produce vernix caseosa, the creamy stuff the covers the baby's skin to protect it from the amniotic fluid. The baby is now about 7 inches long and weighs between 6.5 and 8 ounces. It's around this time that the baby starts to get hiccups, grow hair and fully extend it's arms and legs. Babies are awesome.

I bet you will also get flutterings in your tummy when you realize that the Disney Heroine June Madness final round is up and running.
