I had a pregnancy brain moment last week (actually, I've had several) but I put incorrect information on our blog. I put the week 16 information about the size of baby etc, but technically last week was our 17th week of being pregnant. Think: If you are 32 years old, this is actually your 33rd year of life. So anyway, I'll post what I skipped last week, along with this week's information. Now....for pictures and baby info:
Your Baby: Week 17 (last week info)
Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints.

And here's what baby is up to this week.....
Your Baby: Week 18
Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon.
|There is definitely a baby growing in there!|
I officially don't fit into ANY of my work pants. I didn't wear jeans this weekend (leggings both Saturday and Sunday) so I'm not sure if they fit. I'm guessing not. I've been using the rubber band/hair tie trick with my pants. I need to just break down and buy the Belly Band, but I haven't (surprisingly) found myself at Target lately. My shirts fit, but are tight and I really only feel comfortable in looser fitting ones.
I haven't been able to feel the baby moving yet, but I keep reading that it should be any day (or week) now! I can't wait for that!
