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...

How your baby's growing:

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? 



  1. I sure love that little baby! And what BABY DEBUT?? You didn't tell me that! Does this mean we are still keeping the sex a secret??? :)

  2. Still not finding out the sex, just want pictures and measurements:)

  3. Don't you love how they always compare the baby's size to if you're not hungry enough already??? I mean, it's never "your baby is now the size of a golf ball" or "your baby is now the size of a newborn tea cup Pomeranian" - it's "your child is now the size of a peach" or "your child is the size of a watermelon." Why can't they say "your child is the size of a tub of frosting" or "your child is the size of a truffle" least then I'd know how big the baby is!!! lol

  4. what a cute little belly! I loved being pg!

  5. Aww! I love the pics. Definitely make the Pineapple Cake. BTW, turnips are not good. Blech!
