17 weeks

How Far Along: 17 weeks

Fruit/Object: baby is the size of a Beanie Baby...remember those? :)

Size: Baby is 5 to 5 1/2 inches long and weighs in at 5.9 ounces. Baby gained some weight since last week!

A standard hockey puck weighs 6 ounces

Baby changes: Fat begins to form during this week and the weeks that follow. Also called, adipose tissue, fat is important to the body's heat production and metabolism.Your baby's fingernails are well formed as well as tiny finger prints. Baby's skeleton is changing from rubbery cartilage to bone.

Best Moment this week: Well, this Friday we have another appointment. It's our first "real" ultrasound. We've already had three but this one will be with a tech. It could be the time we find out what we are having but unless Little Miss or Mr is sprawled out to where any ole person can tell what we are having we are going to wait. :)

Food Craving: Nothing really

What I miss: Nothing, I'm good

Sleep: I'm doing ok. I don't think I've ever slept through the night and I'm definetly not sleeping through the night.

What I am looking forward to: This week I am looking forward to our doctor's appointment this Friday.

Symptoms: Not sure if it's allergies or something to do with pregnancy but I'm getting pretty bad headaches. I've always had neck pain but it seems to be getting worse. Hopefully this too shall pass! :)
