(size of an onion)
(the weight of a turnip)How Far Along: 17 weeks!!!!!
Size of baby: Right now, my baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom.
My baby this week (from babycenter.com): Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
Maternity Clothes: Yes.
Stretch Marks: No.
Sleep: This past week was actually pretty good. Once or twice a night pee awakenings but that's about it. Still weird dreams.
Best Moment of the Week: Does today count? Because as of today only 7 more days until we find out what we're having!
Movement: I definitely feel flutters. I just wish they'd get more frequent and stronger ASAP!
Food cravings: Haven't been craving much this week. On Thursday I was ravenously hungry at work and ate 4 bars in between meals and that still wasn't enough to curb my hunger.
Gender: We'll find out on April 28th! Only 1 more weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What I Miss: I miss wearing underwear that doesn't fall down.
What I'm Looking Forward To: April 28th and finding out what we're having. Then my official anatomy scan on May 10th where I'll see my baby for a whole hour!
Milestones: The baby is kicking....well fluttering, but that's a start!
Emotions: Pretty normal this week.
Symptoms: Nothing out of the ordinary.
