17 weeks and 1 day
Your baby’s skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she’s around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.(via Baby Center)
I don’t know for sure because our scale tends to be slightly off, but I think about 6 pounds.
Having a hard time getting to sleep, but once I’m there, I sleep like a rock. I’ve started adding more pillows to my “must have in order to rest” pile. Right now I’m sleeping with the usual two under my head, one under my chest/stomach and one between my knees. In the beginning I was sleeping mostly on my right side, but I’m finding it harder to get comfortable on that side right now and tend to fall asleep on my left side.
Yep. I’m still wearing some regular shirts from American Eagle that stretch out and have some growing room, but I am wearing some maternity shirts, too.
We’ve had some beautiful weather here in Kodiak the last few days. The weekend was perfect with the temperatures hovering between 60-70 both days. The sun was shining and it felt like one of the perfect Spring days in the South. We did some grilling and rearranged our living room on Friday night and then spent the day with the husband for his birthday on Saturday. Had some friends over, played corn hole, and ate. Waaaay too much. Sunday we took Noah to see “Madagascar 3” (afro circus…afro circus…afro…polka dot…polka dot…polka dot…afro…) and spent the afternoon with some friends. It was genuinely one of those perfect weekends and I was pretty bummed to see the week start over.
Don’t know yet…What do you think?
Scheduling our gender reveal ultrasound tomorrow! We’re planning a fun gender reveal party with some of our closest friends and I’m working on a fun giveaway for you guys! Can’t wait to start buying baby clothes and nursery stuff.
Eating. I mentioned this last week, but I’m kind of annoyed with not wanting anything to eat. I almost wish I had strong cravings a few times a day so I would at least want something to eat. Not having any idea what I want to eat is annoying.
