I’m finally getting my engagement ring and wedding ring resized. Feels so weird not having it on!
How far along: 17 Weeks!
How big is baby: Baby boy Saiz is now the size of a large orange. One baby website compares a 17 week old fetus to a onion, which repulses me and reminds me of Shrek.. So we’ll go with large orange. He is now 5.1 inches long and 5.9 ounces. So crazy that it took 14 weeks for him to even get to an ounce and now he’s gaining an ounce basically every week.
Baby Development: BS umbilical cord is growing thicker and stronger now. Basically from here on out, he’s just plumping up and putting on fat that keeps him warm and makes him look more like a real human baby. Yay!
Maternity Clothes: Oh yeah. Stretchy maternity shirts and leggings are my best buddies.
Movement: None. Errrrrrg.
Exercise: I’ve done Pilates or some sort of aerobic exercise every day this week. I’m not going to jinx it.
Weeks Best Moment: Hearing BS heartbeat again at our appointment on Monday. It was varying from 148-151, so that low heart rate for boys bologna isn’t true for this little guy!
Weeks Worst Moment: You know when you want something with all your might and you just know there is absolutely no way in the world you can have it? That’s how I feel about wine. I need a glass of Cabernet in a bad, bad way.
