19 weeks pregnant

The top of your uterus now reaches the belly button and will grow about a centimetre per week. The fetus measures around 15 centimetres long from crown to rump and weighs about 240 grams. 

She has started to swallow amniotic fluid, and her kidneys continue to make urine. Hair on the scalp is sprouting. 

Sensory development reaches its peak this week. The nerve cells serving each of the senses -- taste, smell, hearing, seeing, and touch -- are now developing in their specialised areas of the brain. Nerve cell production slows down as existing nerve cells grow larger and make more complex connections. If you're carrying a baby girl, she already has roughly six million 
eggs in her ovaries. By the time she's born, she'll have about one million.

Feels so nice that I am about to reach half way. Enyo's butterfly flutters have increased. Early morning I could feel him all awake and kicking for an hour. Got a very bad stretching pain in lower abdomen since morning, hopefully it will go away in a while. I received Julia Tuplers Perfect pushing along with the splint yesterday. Will start doing my tupler exercises again to prevent more muscle separation. Feel so excited that I will be seeing Enyo/Ponyo again this afternoon during 19 week scan. will try to find out gender if he/she remains cooperative. Feel so good that my hubby and aarav both will be coming for scan. I am waiting to see Aarav's reaction :)
