19 Weeks!

Almost halfway there!
In just a little over a week we will know BOY OR GIRL and can hopefully start calling him/her by a name.  That is, unless it's a boy then Corey and I will have to hire a mediator before we can decide on the name.
Here's more about week 19:

Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. Her kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.

I am still feeling pretty good, but have started being uncomfortable at night, so I don't sleep well.  I don't recall this happening so early before.  My hips get sore from laying on my side but I can't lay on my back because it isn't long before I am extremely uncomfortable in that position.  Tummy sleeping is totally out now.  I am getting a snoogle for Christmas and am counting down the days in hopes that it will make a big difference in my sleep habits!
