17 weeks




How far along: 17 weeks 2 days 
Next appointment: End of Oct for my OB and I have an appointment at the beggining of Nov with the perinatologist. We'll get an U/S and see this little peanut! 
Any new aches/pains: Things are def better on the sickness front for me, at home is a different story though. I haven't taken Zofran in a while...YAY!! 
Maternity clothes: Yep, shirts. At the last MOPS meeting we had a clothing swap and I scored some new pants and a new shirts. Yay for free! 
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty well. I don't need to take naps but it's def nice to be able to take them. 
Best moment this week: Last night when laying down for bed I felt the baby move and it was undeniable that it was anything other than baby. 
Movement: Last night a def. kick!! Amazing! 
Food cravings: Nothing really at the moment. It's just kinda spur of the moment. 
Belly button: Normal
What I miss: Not having a house full of sick people!! 
What I’m looking forward to this week: I have a few sewing projects that I had to put on hold because of everyone being sick and needing to care for everyone, oh the joys of motherhood! And of course Bunco is this week!! YAY!!! 



Baby at 17 weeks
  • 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.
