What’s My Baby Doing At 19 Weeks Pregnant?
Your baby now weighs more that your placenta, but doesn’t yet have much in the way of body fat. Although they’re still small, it’s possible you might start to feel small movements from your baby as they continue to develop.
As they grow inside you, these little movements which many mums-to-be describe as feeling like bubbles will become stronger, forming into kicks, punches, swooshes, flips and turns, which your partner and other family members (not those randoms in the street) can feel when they touch your belly.

19 Weeks PREGNANT SYMPTOMS
Abdominal aches and pains:
Round ligament pain is that discomfort in your lower 19-week pregnant belly. It’s caused by your muscles stretching to accommodate baby. Let your OB know if any ache or pain concerns you, but as long it’s not intense or accompanied by other symptoms, these are just growing pains.
If hip pain bothers you at night, try sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees. Those giant body pillows might seem big and dorky, but we can’t sing the praises of them enough — especially if you’re 19 weeks pregnant with twins. Cave in and get one.
Is the swelling in your nasal passages making it hard for you to breathe? Here’s how to blow your nose without damaging nasal membranes and causing a nosebleed: Use your thumb to close one nostril and blow gently out the other side.
If you are experiencing leg cramps during pregnancy it can be related to your body having a shortage of calcium and magnesium in your bloodstream. Many mums-to-be experience leg cramps during their second and third trimester as your growing baby adds strain on your muscles and your womb which in turn puts more pressure on the veins providing blood to your leg muscles. Usually cramps can last from a few seconds up 10 minutes and the usually leg cramps tend to occur at night and can often interrupt your much needed sleep.
The most common form of anaemia in pregnancy is iron deficiency anaemia. If you are suffering from iron deficiency anaemia you will probably feeling particularly tired and lethargic, you may look pale and in more severe cases experiencing heart palpitations and shortness of breath. The other form of anaemia common in pregnancy is folate anaemia or vitamin B12 deficiency. Again you may feel tired, lack energy and have muscle weakness or suffering regularly with pins and needles.
