How Far Along: 17 weeks!
Size of baby:
your baby's the size of an onion!
Baby continues to beef up. Now she's about 5.1 inches long and weighs about 5.9 ounces.
Baby Development This Week:
• Her rubbery cartilage is now turning to bone.
• And she's growing some meat on those bones -- putting on some fat.
• She's growing a stronger, thicker umbilical cord, too.
Maternity Clothes: Still in regular clothes and using belly band for jeans.
Movement: I felt several kicks Saturday night. :)
Sleep: It’s getting hard; I think my body pillow has become a necessity!
What I miss: Sleep without worrying about what position I’m in.
Cravings: Nothing new
Symptoms: Nothing new
Best Moment this week: My mom got the baby “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown” book. :)
