Pregnancy at 19 Weeks

How the baby's growing:

The baby's sensory development is exploding! Her/his brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she/he may be able to hear mother's voice now.

The baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. Baby's arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her/his body now. Kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on her/his 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.

Here's how the baby looks like at 19 weeks courtesy of babycenter.com
