Week 17

Spread the love

How far along? 17 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: eh?  We’ll go by the drs numbers… yesterday’s numbers show +0 from the last time that is :). 

How big is baby?  The baby is the size of an Onion.  Looking at 5.1 inches and 5.9 oz.  Today the doctor said the baby was 9 oz… (the other info was off of thebump.com)

  • Rubbery cartilage is now turning to bone
  • growing some meat on those bones – putting on some fat.
  • growing stronger, thicker umbilical cord too.

Maternity Clothes?  Oh heck, that’s just what I seem to be wearing these days.  I’m not sure if I need to or not at this point.

Stretch Marks? I had dreams of having stretch marks, but I haven’t found them… yey!

Best moment this week?  We had our specialist doctor appointment today.  We still don’t have complete answers yet, but we’re 50% in the clear.  Waiting for some more results to come back before we just start doing back flips (which by the way I can’t do).  Also we got to see baby on the ultra sound, oh and we felt baby kick!

Movement?  So the ultra sound tech wasn’t getting baby to cooperate so she had me lay on my side for 10 minutes trying to get baby to move.  Now earlier this week I thought I felt movement but I wasn’t sure if it was that or a gas bubble (tmi) but yesterday at the appointment hubby was feeling around seeing if baby would move/kick and I’m like 99% positive we both felt the fluttering.  I think we ticked baby off.

Food Cravings/Aversions?  Well, nothing that I know of… I like food :).

What I miss: My clothes fitting.  Not feeling so out of breath all the time.  Sleeping through the night without bathroom breaks.

What I’m looking forward to:  Getting the test results back.  Oh and Saturday.

Nausea/Vomiting? eh… I’m feeling better than I did in the first trimester.

Labor signs? Let’s sure hope not! Way to early!

Gender? Yeah so, we found out yesterday what the baby is going to be.  I can’t announce it yet because we’re telling the family on Saturday so I guess you’ll have to wait until next week but yeah, we know.

Belly Button in or out?  Still in….

Wedding rings on or off?  On.

Sleep?  I’m still putting my arms to sleep while sleeping.  I’m tired of that.

Weekly Wisdom: Trust in God.  Breathe.  What happens is meant to even if it isn’t what you want to hear.

Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014.  They’re still using this as the due date.
