bump check: 17 weeks

Nothing too exciting going on this week. Just anxiously awaiting our ultrasound on November 10th. I am ready to start decorating and shopping!!


This week baby is the size of an onion (not the cutest food comparison I've seen...) measuring 5.1 inches and weighing around 5.9 ounces. The baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints.

How far along: 17 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: -1 pound
Maternity clothes: (gulp) yes. well pants, and some tees
Stretch marks?: Nadda
Sleep: good, but full of crazy crazy dreams
Best moment this week: Friday at 4:30 pm... enough said.
Movement: not yet
Food cravings: still chocolate milk
Gender: I'm leaning towards girl...
What I miss: soft cheeses
Milestones: eh? I have no idea...
