{ 19 weeks }

At 19 weeks, Nikki is:

~ Still 5'4"
~ Weighs an undisclosed amount
~ Sleeps on her side, snuggling a pillow, because it's much more comfortable than the alternatives {except the alternative of snuggling Mike...duh}
~ No strange food aversions or cravings
~ No maternity clothes yet...though she might be getting close on the pants
~ Still occasionally throws up randomly--on the kitchen floor on Saturday, in the bathtub this morning
~ Doesn't nap as often as she'd like
~ Definitely felt Peanut move for the first time on February 9!

At 19 weeks, Peanut:
~ Is about the size of a mango {6 inches, head to bottom}
~ Weights about 8 1/2 ounces
~ Is developing lots of sensory areas in his/her brain
~ Is sprouting hair on his/her head
~ May be able to hear my voice

Just for fun, here's the bump progression, starting with weeks 8, 9, 10, and 11:

Weeks 12, 13, 14, and 15 below:

And finally, weeks 16, 17, 18 and 19:


  1. Firstly - you look amazing and all a-glow! Secondly - LOVE your stripey-top, and love the fact that you have felt peanut move - must be an amazing feeling!! Here's hoping the throwing-up decides to quit soon ;)

  2. Okay, I'm a little afraid to comment because I don't want to say something "inappropriate"! How adorable that there is no mistaking mommyhood on you! You look amazing... seriously glowing and so, so happy!

  3. Oh, pretty mamma you are positively radiant! Peanut looks so good on you!
    Love, love, love this post and you and her/him! xo

  4. Awww! Nikki! - You look beautiful. Pregnancy looks great on you. :) One of the most amazing things I have ever experienced in all my years is feeling life moving inside of me.

  5. I love all these tummy pics! You will be so happy to have them! :)
