17 weeks!

What’s going on this week:

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.

**Huh.  Short update this week.  Guess mostly the baby is just plumping up this week. **

My Update:

Due Date: November 4, 2011 – 161 days to go!

Weight Gain: +5 lbs (from pre-preg weight).  Still hanging in there!

Symptoms:  I’m tired.  Sleepy tired.  I am waking up tired and going to sleep exhausted.  I hope this is temporary.  Maybe my body is making up now for the easy first trimester.

Cravings/Aversions: I’m just hungry in general!

Sleep: Good. I can’t wait to get into bed at night.

I am loving: Food. And sleep.

I miss:  Not much…

Movement: Still nothing.  But I’m paying close attention.  I hope it happens soon.

It’s a: I *still* think it’s a boy.  About 1 week till we can find out, but I don’t think we will announce ahead of time what day we are going to go find out.  Just so I can torment you all a little longer.  😉

Exercise: Too tired.  I skipped going back to yoga this week because I was too afraid I would fall asleep during some of the more relaxing poses, but I did go to Pilates yesterday.

Diet: Not bad…before every meal, when I’m feeling hungry, my brain runs through this slideshow of every possible (and impossible) meal I could have.  And it all sounds good.

Looking forward to: Portland next week!  Finding out what this baby is!  Getting a sprinkler system installed! It’s all so exciting!
