17 Weeks

My baby bump at 17 weeks from the side:



And from the front:


























Total Weight Gain: I gained .5 lbs this week.  That puts me back to only being down 6.5 lbs so far.

Movement:  Nothing definite yet.  I think I may have felt a couple of little flutters, but it's hard to be sure.  I can't wait until I know for sure that I am feeling little kicks!

Boy or Girl? We will find out on September 4th (hopefully)!  I really feel like we are having a boy.

Food Cravings: Nothing new...but I finally got some pretty amazing apples this weekend!

How I'm Feeling: Pretty great!  I finally got some yummy apples.  I'm sleeping better thanks to a body pillow that takes up half of the bed.  I have the energy and motivation to finally get the house organized...maybe the 'nesting' everyone talks about has made a little appearance.

Size of Baby: Turnip (5 in, 5 oz)

Baby's Development:  Baby's body fat has started to form and will continue to accumulate through the end of the pregnancy.  Baby is almost certainly listening up by now.  In fact, loud noises will actually startle baby.  Baby's eyes are making small side-to-side movements and can even perceive some light.  Within the next week or so, the pads on baby's fingertips and toes will become adorned with completely individual swirls and creases (aka fingerprints).

Best Part of this Week: Finally getting some pretty delicious apples.   Baby M and I have thoroughly enjoyed them!

What I'm Looking Forward To: Our next ultrasound...only 22 more days!
