19 weeks

So here is what our little girl looks like all cramped up inside my tummy this week...

And a short synopsis of what is going on with her this week according to
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. 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.
And for those of you who aren't exactly sure what an heirloom tomato looks like (I'm thinking she is closer to the size of one of the big ones lol)....

And a definition for those of you who aren't quite sure of the difference in a regular tomato...
Heirloom tomato cultivars can be found in a wide variety of colors, shapes, flavors and sizes. Some cultivars can be prone to cracking or lack disease resistance. As with most garden plants, cultivars can be acclimated over several gardening seasons to thrive in a geographical location through careful selection and seed saving.
This is about all that I have time to post today.  Promise to post more later.  Tim is still in Illinois for the "big hunt" so he has the camera.  He should be back by the time I hit the 20 week mark (next Monday!) so I will post a bump pic then:)
