Baby Update: 17 weeks

May 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind! At this point I'm just going to assume things will never slow down, especially with all of the fabulous plans we have for the summer!  Sooo, just a quick update!

 

Baby's news:

 

Weeks: 17

Size: a white onion. 5.1 inches and 5 oz. 

Happening this week: Baby is practicing breathing movements! Also has well formed lips and mouth, and is swallowing, yawning, and hiccuping. Taste buds are fully developed, but the nerve connections won't be mature enough for baby to actually taste for another few weeks.

Leah's news:

 

Feeling: Steadily better!

Crazy cravings? Not so much. I've had a few, but nothing that was an "I must have this or someone will die" experience. From what I'd heard I really thought it was much more like that!  Favorites this week have been peaches, mangos, and these amazing chicken avocado burritos. 

 

Blacklisted foods? Eggs, lettuce, broccoli. Also anything with weird textures.

Anything else? I started feeling Baby move this week! It's super exciting, but also a bit weird. I can feel movement the best when I'm laying on my back, and especially if I've just had something fruity/sweet. Also excited to find out SOON if Baby is a boy or girl! :) :) :)
