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 5/24...so maybe we will know what we are having...so anxious and really want to know!
