    17 weeks

    How far along: 17w
    Weight: me = 128.4lb; baby = 150g (per u/s);
    Sleep: Just got back from a whole other timezone. Sleeping arrangements were changed. Overall well, but ask me how we acclimate in a week
    Gender: TBD
    Movement: Sometimes I think I feel stuff, and then since it’s nothing like what I remember I think it’s just gas.
    Feeling: Good! I had two weeks of feeling pretty good and no yaking. Hopefully that wasn’t a travel fluke, so this week will tell.
    What I am looking forward to: Movement that’s for sure.
    Weekly Wisdom: Telling your dad that you are worried that you hadn’t felt the baby move yet, and asking to visit his doctor friend for his stethoscope results with a same-day appointment with one of Sofia’s top OBs. And a fetal scan. Not a bad deal if you can get it 🙂
    Milestones: Had an unexpected fetal scan last week. Kiddo looks good. All limbs look good, organs look OK, no cleft lip. Looking forward to my long fetal scan here in a few weeks.
    Food cravings: Meat-free dishes.
    Fetal development:
    Your baby’s skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — the lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and it’s around 5 inches long from head to bottom. The baby can move its joints, and the sweat glands are starting to develop.
