19 weeks pregnant pictures

Your baby

Your baby will be bigger and heavier than the placenta by now. Fat will be starting to develop but your little one will still be quite skinny.

On an ultrasound, you will see that the ears are now in their final position, and the eyes (which will still be closed) too.

Although the colour of your baby’s skin won’t develop fully until well into childhood, the pigment which is produced by melanocytes, will now be developing in his skin.

You

19 weeks pregnant symptoms mean you could have some mild breathlessness – it’s not a cause for worry, but check with your doctor if you are severely out of breath.

You may have already begun to feel movement in your tummy, but remember some first-time mums might not feel this until the 20th week or later.

Your body is still changing, and the top of your uterus will now be in line with your belly button.

If you are experiencing blurry vision, don’t panic, some pregnant women experience this due to water retention. It usually sorts itself out after the birth and can be helped with exercise but always tell your midwife or doctor if you’re worried.

What to think about

As a 19 week pregnant mum to be, make sure you plan your maternity leave which will give you time to make practical and emotional preparations for your baby’s birth.

Make the most of free dental care during your pregnancy. You may find that your gums are bleeding after brushing as pregnancy hormones cause some tissues in your body to become softer. Always let your dentist know that you are pregnant.

It’s time to start thinking about how you would like to feed your baby. Speak to your partner, friends and family and talk it through.

Check out our handy checklist to make sure you've ticked off everything you need for your precious new arrival.

I feel the same as you Lisa, think I have felt fluttery movements and a bit of poking about but am looking forward to definate kicks.

hi i am now 19 +3 with my fourth baby i also have lupus which can cause problems and have to take asprin daily,i have my scan on monday cant wait so i can find out what i am having is there anyone out there with the same problem xxxx

discomfort all the time

I am now 19+4 and have been in discomfort from about 6 weeks due to a cyst on my left ovarie, it has leaked a few times which ment I was sent to hospital for strong pain relief I did see a consultant but she just said they'll only do something about it if the pain gets so much I have to have morphine which I have a few times. This discomfort started to die down a few weeks ago but has been replaced by pain all over nearly all the time between my neck and shoulder, my stomach, my ribcage and even in my jaw. Its turning me into a horrible person. I've seen a midwife twice the first time she was just asking questions and the second time it was with a different midwife who didn't seem able to give me any type of support because she just wanted to tick her boxs and move me on. Is anyone going through anything similer? No one else is pregnant around my way and as I've been put on medical leave from work I'm on my own with no one to talk to.

bounty packs

i it too late to get my bounty packs i didnt no nothing about these sample bags???

Blood clots

I found out about 10 weeks pregnant that i had a large clot going from the top of my leg to my stomach. I'm now 19weeks and ave to take daily injections to thin my blood. This is my 4th pregnacey and i've never had problems like this before. I'm a little worried about giving birth if i'm honest and wonder if there anyone that bn though this???? :(

:( baby blues

iv to experienced the dizziness I almost passed out in a shop at the check out i was so embarrassed, my eyes have been so sore and im getting constant migraines which i have never suffered from before also I am getting an awful tooth ache and feeling so down and hormonal, i just hope i start feeling better soon so i can enjoy this experience i feel like none of these pregnancy symptoms are passing me by..except the bump i haven't got one at all anyway best of luck to all x

sooooooo tired

hi all im 19 weeks 1 day (although this changes for each midwife i see) and im sooo tired, i cant do anything i wake up and then fall back to sleep. there must be something odd going on as the 18 week pick me up is either late or not coming. has anyone else had the pressure / heavy feeling in there abdomen yet?
