We went for the morphology scan today and I'm happy to report everything is growing perfectly with the baby. It is now 16.5cm and weighs almost 300 grams, which is just a bit chunkier than the average for 19wks.
In fact I can stop referring to the baby as IT, and call it a HE. That's right, we're having a little baby BOY!!! Knowing the gender of the baby is making it all the more real for us, and I'm starting to freak out.
One of the reasons I'm freaking out is because currently the baby's room looks like this.

|I'm currently living in summery maxi dresses, which I wear even to work but with a blazer on top to give it a business edge. This one is from ICE, which I bought two for $40 (I bought the black one too)|
As you can see from the pictures I've started showing more now, and I've taken to wearing belts above my belly to accentuate it more and let people know that the extra weight is not because of too many cheesecakes (though that is something I'm still indulging in every now and then), but is because of a little boy that's growing in there.
I still get tired quickly, and I've started huffing and puffing if I walk somewhere really fast, but apart from that the only thing really bugging me at the moment is heartburn. Even eating boring bland food (hard for a spice lover like me) still causes heartburn. I don't have any weird food cravings, much to the disappointment of the husband who no doubt wanted to see me eat pickles dipped in ice cream.
That's my little belly update for this week. If anyone has any tips on how to avoid or get rid of heartburn I'd love to hear it!
