17 Weeks

Our little pumpkin weighs about 5 ounces and is fluttering around in my belly.  His or her (gosh, am I really going to say 'his or her' for the next 5 months?!) bones are hardening and he or she (ahhh!) can move all of his or her joints.  How is it that the baby only weighs 5 ounces and I am so BIG?

how in the WORLD do I still have 5 more months????

Okay, a word on the not finding out thing.  It is really starting to make me anxious.  I am beginning to want to know, but Brian is holding strong.  In a couple of months, I'd like to start getting the room ready, and I'm not big into the neutral room thing.  It is really just about the room, so I guess I need to just get over it and decorate once HE OR SHE arrives.




  • Baby's size:  5 inches from crown to rump (though the book says 7 inches, so the jury's out on that one), about the size of a turnip, and weighing 5 ounces




  • My weight gain this month:  4 pounds.  I'm going steady at about 7 total pounds.  I wonder how long I'll continue to publicly log this...




  • Clothes:  maternity pants and shirts




  • Cravings:  apple juice and orange juice




  • Aversions:  greasy food




  • How I'm feeling:  still throwing up once or twice a day-once in the morning and once in the afternoon.    I'm having round ligament pain.  I'm just starting to feel a little physically inhibited by the pregnancy-like picking up Harper all of the time, or bagging leaves.  I am really really REALLY excited for April.  I can't wait to see the baby and hold him or her.




  • My favorite thing this week:  hearing the ba-boom-ba-boom-ba-boom of the heart beat!
