17 Week Update

17 Weeks already?!?! nuts!  I’m feeling pretty good, still loving the back brace.  Just realized that my belly looks a little weird .. sort of torpedo shaped in the photo.  I’m still wearing my brace in it.  Now I’m in my pjs and much to lazy to re-take the picture!

This week we’ve got two doc appointments (1 on Thursday with my OB and 1 on Friday with the specialist).  Hoping everything still goes well and we get good reports.  This will be the first time at my OB knowing that it’s all boys.  Wonder what they’ll say!?!?  I really do love going to my OB … they are quite wonderful!  To really finish off the week, Saturday is Wicked and Sunday is the Bissing Baby Shower!  Sherri is coming into town … can’t wait to visit with her!  Once Wednesday is over, it’ll be down hill for the rest of the week!

On another note, here is the “Your Pregnancy: Week 17” from thebump.com … it sounds HORRIBLE .. really makes all you non-mothers out there want to jump on the baby band wagon!

Though increased blood flow is good for baby, it might be making you a little…damp. Body secretions (think sweat, mucus, nosebleeds, and vaginal discharge) are in full force. This week might also mark the first time you feel baby move inside you, but don’t worry if it’s another two months before you notice anything. (Or realize that this time, it’s actually not gas.)

……I don’t even know what to say following that.

Babies are now the size of an onion!
Babies skeleton are hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.



  1. Glad you had such a great time with Jaden’s Zoo Birthday Party! You are looking happy. It’s been so interesting to hear the baby reports. Have fun at Wicked! We will be moving Chrysetta home for 10 days before she heads to New York.
