Week 19 of Pregnancy

This week my baby is the size of a large mango and is just over 14cm long. I finally have a desire to eat again and I am finally looking forward and enjoying meals. I have been especially fond of pink grapefruits, seafood sticks with seafood sauce, dairy milk with daim and any kind of fruit I can get my hands on.

I have a new pregnancy aliment which I am not very fond of and neither is Jimmy. I have wind, morning, noon and night. When I turn over in bed at night I burp for no reason! It's not indigestion and comes out of nowhere. I feel like one of those cow toys that when when you tip it upside down and back again it makes a long mooooooooing sound. It woke Jimmy up the other night and I must say I did have a giggle. I'm just grateful it's not the other end.

I have been feeling the baby move so much and it makes me smile every time. I love to feel the kicking and wiggling around. Jimmy has been trying to feel and he thinks he has felt the baby move a couple of times but he says the movements were faint and he wasn't 100% sure. 

We go for our 20 week scan on Thursday and we can't wait to find out the sex of the baby, although I've convinced myself I am having a girl. The appointment isnt until the afternoon so we are going shopping before hand to make a day of it. I am so excited I can barely wait!
