17 weeks and counting....

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

I have noticed that my center of gravity is changng, so occasionally I feel a little unsteady on my feet, sometimes dizzy and more headaches.  The heartburn is almost over, but occasionally still feel it.  I think I felt movement yesterday driving to work...too soon to tell???

Sonogram coming up on 5/ maybe we will know what we are anxious and really want to know!
