19th Week Pregnancy Highlights

Toe & Finger Prints

Your baby’s toes and fingers now develop permanent lines, burrows, and patterns that make finger-and-toe prints unique.

Maternity Outfit Time

As your belly begins to grow and you become curvy, now will be the time to shop for some maternity/nursing clothes. Opt for vertical lines and tiny prints that help accentuate your bump beautifully.

How Big is Baby?

The baby is maturing fast with the arms and legs growing in the right proportion. Your tiny pod has better limb coordination with the brain and the kidneys are also developing. The skin loses its translucency and starts to develop pigments which will determine the baby’s skin tone. Your baby’s skin is covered by Vernix Caseosa, a thin greasy protective layer that safeguards the baby from amniotic fluid. Hair starts to develop on the baby’s scalp at this stage. However, the level of hair in the newborns varies based on hereditary and individual development.

Mother’s Changing Body:
What to Expect

Some expectant mothers might feel the baby’s movement for the first time during the 19th week. If you were pregnant before, you may feel the movements earlier in this pregnancy.

The top of the uterus reaches the belly button this week and continues to grow about one centimeter every week.

As your belly starts to grow, it is best to sleep on the side as the uterus presses the blood vessels and causes dizziness.
