Pregnancy Calendar - Week 19

Your Baby:
Vernix, a milky white coating that protects your baby's skin in the amniotic fluid, appears on your baby's skin this week. Your baby's kidneys are also fully functioning this week and producing urine. He now weighs about 225 grams and is 15cm long.

You may start to experience heartburn around this time that will most likely continue throughout your pregnancy. Stock up on Gaviscon and try to stay away from heartburn-inducing foods like refined carbohydrates and acidic foods.
