It isn't any harder for me to conceal. I can't shoot the G26 well without an extention, which ends up making the grip, the hardest part to conceal, just as big as the G19. But you loose 3-5 rounds, and get a shorter sight radius. Now if you can shoot the G26 bare, with no extention, then it is a bit smaller, but I have no problem concealing my G19. I would say that the G19 makes a better nightstand gun as you can mount a tac-light on the front, which is a requirement for me. Either way, they will work just fine for whatever you plan to do with them. If you want to trade, it sounds like a good deal, but I would save up and buy a G19 when you get the chance.
