Our pregnancy: 17 weeks
How Jenn and Chad's babies are growing:
I am excited to be another week closer to the "20 week" milestone and still enjoying feeling pretty good most of the time. We've had some good weather to enjoy a few out door fall activities and most days I've felt up to cooking and baking too so all is well in my world! :) I'm still just getting occasional little baby "bumps and nudges" and waiting for the kicking to commence! From the u/s I found out Baby A's (the one in the middle) has a anterior placenta (if I read what she was typing on the screen correctly!) so I don't expect to feel as much on that side as fast as I should with Baby B who's placenta is posterior.
Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
This is most likely going to be a relatively "quiet" week, not much coming up that I know about. I have a chiro/massage appointment scheduled for today which I am always excited about and get to pick up my Farmer's Market Basket this evening! I haven't picked one up in awhile and can't wait to see what all will be in this one, then incorporate all the fresh goodies into our daily meals! I think we definitely eat healthier when I make a point to pick up the baskets on a regular basis.
Kent and I are working on planning out his upcoming birthday party, in a little less than a month, and then counting down to Thanksgiving and getting to visit with Kenneth for a few days! I can't believe October is more than half way over, and it's only 2 weeks 'til Halloween... I knew the rest of the year would fly by once we hit this month, but it still never ceases to amaze me!
