How far along: 17w1d

Total weight gain: Still floating from 7-8 pounds

Size and growth of the baby: 5-6oz. similar to a turnip
From my weekly email: Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — the lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and is around 5 inches long from head to bottom. He/she can move her joints, and the sweat glands are starting to develop.

Sex: still a surprise...unless we see something we shouldn't next week!

Maternity clothes: I'm hoping to purchase some soon! :)

Sleep: okay, still getting up early

Best moment(s) of the week: ordering the bedding!

Movement: still anxiously waiting

Food cravings/aversions: chocolate & ice cream

Morning sickness: gone

Symptoms: none

Belly button in or out: in

What I miss: taking allergy medication!!

What I'm looking forward to: Our 3D ultrasound next week!

  2. I love the big brother shirt on the dog.So cute! Congrats, enjoy every minute it goes fast!
