Week 19 - Mango Baby

Hmmm... Mango that might be a name possibility. What do you think Mango Vige?

Week 19
Average Size
6.0 inches
8.5 oz

The baby's sensory development is exploding! M;s brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that M may be able to hear my voice now, so I shouldn't be shy about reading aloud, talking, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes me.

M weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a mango. Arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of the body now. The kidneys continue to make urine and hair on the scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on the skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
