According to thebump.com, Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints.
How Far Along?
17 Weeks and 5 Days
I've officially grown out of all my pre-pregnancy pants (minus the athletic pants with elastic waistbands). I'm still wearing most of my pre-pregnancy tee shirts. I even bought a few! Gotta love Old Navy and their long shirts!
Loving it. I still sometimes nap during the day - especially if I've been busy throughout the day.
I had my first official wierdo craving. It was for a ham sandwhich on a toasty bun with BANANAS! I haven't given in, but let me tell you, I still think it sounds good.
None this week!
Best Moment Of The Week?
My father-n-law told me that he could start to see a baby bump. That made me happy because it was the first person who said something! (Besides Shane.)
Nothing yet - still anxiously waiting!
I took one of those old wives tales gender predicting tests on my friend Jen's blog. It was overwhelmingly boy. I'm definatly feeling boy - but we will hopefully know for sure this Thursday. I go for my ultrasound!
Belly Button In Or Out?
In, in, in.
What I Miss
Just painting really. Not because I like to paint but merely because I have so many paint projects to do. I know that many pregnant women do paint things - but my hubby refuses to let me touch a brush. Now if I can only get him to do those painting projects....
What I'm Looking Forward To
Thursday! And finding out if we are having a boy or girl!
Being about ready to determine the gender. We're really coming along!
To journal and record this time in letters for our future little one. I think about the moment that I'll give that journal to our child one day. Wow.....
