Week 17: Is that a pasta hangover or a baby?

Here we go again!

Your Baby in Week 17 of Pregnancy

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 banana - Rob's favorite snack!), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.

Awww, the  nugget is getting so darn big!!  S/He is certainly letting me know lately, too....as I am ALWAYS hungry!  (About time!!!)

Total Weight Gain: 2.5 pounds.  Yay!  Yep, the only time you hear a woman cheer for weight gain, I know :-)

My Body: It's a gettin there!  You still can't tell with looser tops, but my bathing suit is a dead giveaway - I did NOT overstay my welcome at the Chinese Buffet, there's a little passenger aboard the tummy train!

Cravings: Fruit.  Cheese.  As always.  And now, cashews!  Raw is best, but roasted works too.  Deeelish.  

Aversions:  Same ole suspects.  Nothing new to report :-)

Sleep: Is amazing.  I have no shame about a 9pm bedtime and a weekend nap.  Better pack it in while I can, right?  And I'm happy to report that Rob sleeps AWESOMELY in his new big boy bed - YAY!!  

Baby Items Bought/Received: Paint for kiddo's room - a really neat shade of sherbet orange.  And we moved the crib in - I officially have a toddler now!!

Best Baby Moment: Nugget said Hi for Daddy and Rob this weekend - little tummy flutters :-)  Rob thought it was super funny.

Goals: Half Marathon coming up this week - can we beat the pregnancy PR of 2:09?  I was 14 weeks last time, so we shall see what happens!!

Worries: None right now.  Did I say that?

BABY NUGGET ON THE MOVE!
