17 weeks

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.  Taken from BabyCenter.

This week, I have more round ligament pain.  With R, it got really painfully.  Not so much, this time around although I heard it is worse with the second.  The baby is very active, more in the evenings and yes I have felt kicks.  I still have to go to the bathroom all the time, but I do drink alot of water.

R pulled out her extra pair of underwear and waved it around while at the drs.  In front, of pregnant women hey they will have to get used to it sooner or later.  And no, I don’t have to carry extra underwear for her around I just choose to.

Best moment, we have the baby and R together on voice record.  The baby’s heartbeat and he/she was really active and kicking me as well at the moment.  Then we have R going that’s my baby.  She kisses Muffin daily.  We didn’t get part on record but she also wants to name Muffin (if girl) Olivia.  Sorry, but not happening.  We called R-Junior in the womb (before we knew she was a girl).  This one we call Muffin.

I am ready for fall already.

  1. I’m sorry you’re having pain. I had tons of back pain with both of my pregnancies and I remember how uncomfortable that is. I hope it is managable.

    I am ready for fall too, enough of this heat!!!

    I don’t know if I told you or not, but I changed my URL to http://www.myfourboys.com instead of (dot)net. Long story. *sigh*
