17 weeks

Our baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — the lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Our baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and it's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. It can move it's joints, and the sweat glands are starting to develop.

Next up: 20 week ultrasound Aug. 25th (also when we *hopefully* will be able to find out the sex!)

I'm feeling good, not much going on on my end of the deal. I officially can not lay on my stomach with out it being totally awkward. No movements lately, or none that I notice anyways.

Booger (my oldest cat) I think has finally noticed something is different with me. She has become a super love bug and always wants to be around me. Until now she has never wanted anything to do with me in the 4 years I have had her, unless it's feeding time. Karma probably knew before I knew, she follows me around everywhere I go, sleeps on the floor by my side of the bed and always wants to sit by or on me. As for Optimus, well he marches to his own beat and probably forgets that he lives with anyone until they walk by.
