Belly Pics Are Here:)
Thanks to my friend, Lacey, we took some last minute pictures of "the belly". 17 weeks folks! I've already been feeling this kid kicking for about a week now, and boy is he/she active! Let's see what all is going on in there...
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.
I'm not exactly sure how big a turnip is...not sure I've ever even seen one? Wonder if they taste any good...... Anyway, *hehe* My husband actually got to feel the baby move too, which was a surprise. We decided not to get the ultrasound at the hospital this time since it was pretty expensive, but are going to Baby Debut instead. Probably around week 20, so coming up! Guess I should make an appointment, huh?
