My dear Princess Peanut,
You’re 19 weeks old today – we are in our fifth month and things are starting to get really really exciting !
For one – you’re about the size of a small to large mango – and I can’t wait to see you during your scan this week !
According to the pregnancy books I have been going through the way I finish a bag of chips every movie, I’ll soon be able to feel you kicking – right now I keep getting excited whenever I feel so much as a tiny twinge but I’m honestly not sure if it’s hunger, gas, or you (I’m sorry). BUT, according to the same books, by the end of 22 weeks, I’ll be able to tell exactly – when your movements get more co-ordinated and you get even bigger than you are now.
Sometimes I’d like to tell you not to grow so fast – the weighing scale has been making me quite depressed – but your health is my number one priority so I’m going to be putting aside all vanity and drinking those 4 awful glasses of milk I have to take every day to keep my calcium levels up so you grow strong and smiley. 🙂
