17 Weeks



What's Happening with Peanut?
  • Peanut is now the size of a turnip - which is about 5 ounces and he/she is around 5 inches long.
  • His/Her skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone.
  • The umbilical cord is growing stronger and thicker.
  • Peanut can move his/her joints and is starting to develop sweat glands.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 12 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? I am still wearing some of my pre-pregnancy clothes, but it is really time to go maternity clothes shopping. Thankfully, I am doing that this week.
  • Sleep: Sleeping is GREAT!
  • Best moment this week: Spending the day with Daddy and Grandaddy at the Georgia Tech Football Game
  • Food cravings: Smores Pop-Tarts
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • What I miss: Being able to get dressed in just a mere 5 minutes. Now that my wardrobe is dwindling, it takes longer to put an outfit together.
  • What I am looking forward to: A nice relaxing Saturday with absolutely NO plans!

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy is finished with the State Patrol Office (cue the confetti).
  • Daddy gets to be a bachelor for most of the week since Mama has to go to Atlanta for a workshop.
  • Daddy is become a resident pregnancy expert as he reads all the articles from Baby Center that Mama forwards him.

You're looking great and just look at that cute little bump!!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting the other day - it's nice to know that I'm not alone with my crazy feelings ;) (I blame the hormones)!
