17 Weeks

  • How far along?: seventeen weeks
  • What's baby up to?: Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.
  •  Weight Gain: I have gained two pounds total; as of last appointment
  •  Symptoms: crazy dreams; headaches 
  •  How big is baby?: about the size of an onion (about 5.1 inches)
  •  Sex: we find out on July 7 (hopefully)
  •  Maternity clothes?: a few pieces
  •  Stretch marks?: nope
  •  Sleep?: pretty good; still gotta go potty at least once a night, sometimes more
  •  Best moment this week?: Celebrating our first wedding anniversary
  •  Movement?: not yet
  •  Food cravings?: none
  •  Labor signs?: n/a
  •  Belly button in or out?: in, but it is flattening and is sensitive
  •  What I miss: not feeling like I'm made of glass
  •  What I'm looking forward to: finding out if it's a boy or girl and feeling him/her move
  •  Milestone: reaching the 2nd trimester
