19 Weeks



Today was "the big" ultrasound. We were good though, and we walked away still oblivious to whether our baby is a boy or a girl. Tim has consistently said he does not want to know until the baby is born. I waver back and forth on how I feel about it. I want to go shopping for pink or blue. Yet I think labor would be a little easier mentally if we were still wondering "boy or girl". So here we are, still wondering. :-)

The doctor said everything looks perfect with the baby. He did say the baby is a little big right now - he estimated 12 ounces. I did a little research and found that at 19 weeks the baby should be about 10.5 ounces and should reach 12 ounces at 21 weeks. Perhaps our due date is off a little bit? Or perhaps Baby is just big? Time will tell.


We were able to count 4 fingers and a thumb on each hand. Two legs, two feet, two arms. 4 chambers in the heart.

I have a doctor's appointment Thursday. I'll keep you posted if anything exciting happens there.

Baby names...yes, we have thought of a few. We're still not telling what they are, because we want the option of changing our minds. :-)
