An obstetrician-gynecologist says: The growth of the child is not as intense as before. Fatty tissue – the source of heat for the newborn – is formed at the base of the neck, over the chest, around the kidneys.
Eyes are closed, but the kid may distinguish different light from the darkness. Strong light directed to your stomach, penetrates into the uterus and the baby turns sideways light.
At the 19th week the growth of your baby is 15 cm, weight 260 g, as a small courgette.
