How Far Along: 17 weeks
*I'm still taking my weekly photos in the same outfit which I'll post again in a few weeks but I thought it would be fun to post a picture of me wearing something else for a change so you can see the growing belly*
Size of baby: According to babycenter.com the baby is about the size of a turnip.
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.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +3 pounds from my last doctor's appointment and about +4-5 pounds overall.
Maternity Clothes: none yet, trying to get through summer at least. I will definitely need to buy a whole new wardrobe for the cold weather.
Gender: not sure, still getting the girl vibe though.
Movement: I believe there is definitely some movement happening in there now. Still hard to distinguish what's what though.
What I miss: nothing.
Sleep: This week has sucked but not because of the baby but because a certain husband of mine keeps snoring and waking me up!
Symptoms: Lots of stretching/growing/shifting type of feelings in my stomach. There definitely seems to be a party happening in my uterus.
Cravings: nothing in particular, haven't had much of an appetite this week.
