Wow already 17 weeks - it feels like just yesterday we found out we were expecting - yesterday I started laying out my year and all of my vacations and Weddings - (Yeah Melanie) wow are we busy people. I am sure with the baby coming that nothing about our schedule will change - maybe the places we are going will change but I am certain we will still be busy as can bee!- haha Well I am now 17 weeks and I am sure some of you are wondering if I am really going to update you each and every week - well the answer to that is YES -
Andy and I have been talking about trying to pick a new name - one that is unisex - so I can call the bump in my belly by it's name and not worry about calling it all these weird names - I think for the most part every name we came up with we have a friend that already uses that name - so for now we are still on the original 2 names - I am stuck between 2 different patterns for the babies room - if you want to help let me know I will gladly send you the links to the pictures!
Well this is what and who we are this week - notice that "baby" is now refers to as a HE - Baby Center refers to the baby every other week as girl - boy - girl- boy so this is not my wishful thinking ... Your baby weighs about 5 ounces now, and he's around 5 inches long — about the size of a large onion. The umbilical cord, his lifeline to the placenta, is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby can move his joints, and his skeleton — until now, rubbery cartilage — is starting to harden into bone. Some of it will remain cartilage for years after he's born. A newborn's skeleton has 300 parts (a combination of bone and cartilage). As your child grows, some of these parts harden and fuse together. By the time your baby reaches adulthood, he'll have just 206 bones.
With the baby being compared to a LARGE Onion I can't come up with one thing to name it! For you SnowBE's that are still in my life we could always name it Olivia - but no one else would get it - haha so I think I will stick with "O"
