Pregnancy Calendar - Pick a Week!
19 Weeks Pregnant
Whoa, did you feel that?!
Your baby is the size of a mango!
His or her movements are probably becoming a lot more noticeable to you. Right now they probably feel like little taps or flutters, but in the coming weeks they will become a lot stronger. Until then, only you can feel these little movements. Its a little secret between you and your baby, you are already bonding!
As you are starting to grow, you might become more concerned about your weight gain. At this stage, you should have gained between 8 to 14 pounds (or double this if you're pregnant with twins). If you are concerned that you are gaining too much weight, this could be a sign of pre-eclampsia and you should consult your doctor. If you have gained too little weight, this could be a sign that your baby is not getting enough nutrients and, again, you should consult your doctor.
21 weeks to go!
