19 1/2 weeks

Last Friday (4/3/09) I was officially 19 weeks pregnant! The baby weighs about 1/2 a pound and is about 6 inches long. I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow! Half way there already!

She's definitely moving around a lot more. Every few hours I'll feel some little kicks and punches. The other night I rolled over and had my tummy against Cuong's back and she went crazy! So he definitely felt her then! It was pretty funny and exciting.

I started feeling her move around at about week 17. I wasn't sure at first if I was feeling the correct thing, but since it kept happening, it had to be the baby!

Last night we were sitting on the couch together and I lifted my shirt up to put my hand on my tummy. I was shocked to see that my stomach was actually MOVING every time I felt a little kick or punch! It's so bizarre and amazing at the same time!

Here are some pictures that we took the other night (about 19 1/2 weeks):

I think my tummy is getting bigger as each week passes by. According to what I've been reading in books and websites, my belly button might start to get sore soon. My uterus will be moving upwards and actually start creeping behind my belly button. They say that it will be rubbing against the back of it. We'll see how long the belly button ring stays in.
