17 Weeks

How far along? 17 weeks, 3 days

How big is baby? 5.1 inches, 5.1 oz,  a Turnup (I’ve been corrected, its a Turnip! Thanks Mike)
On a side note, anyone have any good recipes for turnips? I’ve never cooked one (or eaten) one before. 

What is Baby doing this weekBaby’s skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints. 

Maternity Clothes? Yes.

Stretch Marks? Not yet…
Sleep? No problems still. And I only work 2 days this week so I get to catch up on my sleep!

Best moment this week? Doing a hike, and going for a run, still trying to be active.

Miss Anything? Summer drinks… yup alcohol. 

Movement? Not yet. 

Food cravings? Strawberries!! Fruit

Food aversions? Nothing new this week. Still not a fan of ground turkey and humas. (Once again Mike, thanks for the correction, Hummus, although Im pretty sure I wouldn’t like humas either)

Anything making you queasy or sick? not this week!
Have you started to show yet? Yes! 

Gender? Still thinking a boy, but we wont know for 22 more weeks! 

Labor Signs? Nope

Belly Button- In or Out? In

Wedding Rings- On or Off? On

Mood? Feeling good! 

Looking forward to: I thought that maybe we could go strawberry picking this weekend but the farms aren’t ready yet, so maybe next weekend!
