My little June Bugs @ 17 weeks
How far along? 17 Weeks!!
Baby's Size? Babies are now the size of an onion! They don't stink like one :)
Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.
Weight Gain? 7lbs
Maternity Clothes? All maternity pants.
Stretch marks? None!! i just hope it stays this way.
Belly button in or out? It's getting really close to the surface.
Sleep? Not terrible but not good.
Foods I am loving? tomatoes with salt YUMMMM and Ice water, lots and lots of ice.
Foods I am hating? This is going back to normal. I can eat the food I cook.
Best moment this week? Hearing the heartbeats...its been a while
Movement? Yes, I can feel the baby move to the surface and then actually feel the baby. The part of my belly will get really hard. DH even gets to feel it. It's only one of them. The other doesn't get close enough to the surface. My OB verified it is the baby I feel!!! I can't feel it move back in though. My belly will just be normal in that spot. I can't wait for actual movement!
Symptoms? stuffy nose (so annoying) It's like being sick with out being sick. If that makes sense? and minor headaches.
Genders? No clue but the office will be calling me today or tomorrow to set up the scan!!! So excited!
What I miss? Not having to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.
What I'm looking forward to? Finding out the sex
Weekly Wisdom: A Prenatal massage will help sciatic nerve problems.
Milestone:Being in the 2nd trimester!
Emotions: Excited. Can't wait to find out the sex and start feeling them.
I have been getting all these red bumps/ pimples (you can't pop) all over my chest, belly, legs and arms. I showed them to my OB Friday. She said that with all those she bets there is at least one girl in there. She said they are hormonal and they come from to much estrogen. So between me and possibly one or more girls is why they are all over me. Time will tell.
Any guesses on what we are having?
