17 Weeks


Our baby’s skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — his lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Our baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and he's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. He can move his joints, and his sweat glands are starting to develop.

He is getting bigger & bigger, which my be the reason my tummy won't stop growing! LOL.  Everyone keeps saying that's what's supposed to happen--surprise, surprise.  I will have to post another baby bump picture sometime this week.  

Brock touched my belly tonight and couldn't believe how hard it is getting-I can't either!  It's getting to be a pretty solid bump now.  

I've been having really strange dreams lately, which I hear is normal for pregnant women.  Last night I had a crazy dream that my Aunt Sandy was pregnant and going into labor.  And then I left the hospital to go to a hair appointment, and on the way there I got in a car accident.  What the?! 

So that's what's going on with the baby and me this week.  New updates soon!
