Your dream child at 19th week

Your dream child is responding to sound, movement, touch and light by this time and is much more aware of the outside world than she was earlier in your pregnancy. If she hears loud noise outside your body, especially if it is sudden, she may jump or more around vigorously in reaction to it, although you may not always be aware of these movements.


  • Millions of cells are growing in your baby’s brain, and nerves are now connecting the brain to the muscles, so that she has more control of her movements.
  • She has the same number of nerve cells as an adult but the nerves have yet to receive a protective layer of myelin.
  • Her system of temperature regulation continues to develop, and small amounts of a substance called ‘brown fat ‘are being deposited around her neck, chest and groin.
  • Working on her five senses. Nerve cells for her sense of taste, hearing, sight and smell are developing in her brain.


Your baby's the size of a mango!
At about 6.0 inches long and weighing in at about 8.5 ounces, she's getting there! Your baby’s ears now stand out from sides of her head, where as previously they were flat. Permanent tooth buds are appearing behind the buds of her milk teeth. Her skin is wrinkled and is covered in a waxy substance called vernix, which is secreted from the sebaceous glands and provides a waterproof coating, as well as giving her some protection from infection.

Importance of yoga during pregnancy


Breathing and Relaxation
Since yoga teaches controlled breathing and relaxation techniques, it can be beneficial for pregnant women in a couple of ways. First, it can help you to deal with some of the stress and physical pain commonly experienced in pregnancy. Plus, some moms say that it even helps to reduce morning sickness.

The breathing and relaxation techniques utilized by yogis are especially valuable during labor and delivery. Moms who practice yoga regularly report that using these techniques during contractions can lessen the pain significantly and are more likely to successfully give birth naturally. The success rate seems to increase for moms who begin the practice early in pregnancy and continue throughout.

Body Work
Practicing prenatal yoga can help to get and keep your body in shape. Yoga also helps to make your body more flexible and toned. Research has proven that women in better shape before and during pregnancy are less likely to experience complications during labor and delivery.

Energy and Mood Booster
Pregnant women often experience fatigue, which can exacerbate depression and irritability. The practice of yoga helps to balance you emotionally and has been proven to boost energy. And, since yoga can help to reduce tension and stress, many moms report better quality sleep as a result of a regular program.

Positive Effect On Baby
The baby, too, benefits from all of this yoga. It receives increased oxygen and endorphins. The movement of the asana practice also gently massages the baby and creates an inner remembrance of relaxation. Babies will carry this within them throughout life.
