17 weeks

Sunday Best - Augstana

Earlier this morning (only about an hour ago), I declared today a good day because I didn't vomit. I'm still vomiting every morning, mind you (with an extra-large puke fest on my birthday this past Tuesday. Thanks, Baby!). I shouldn't have spoken so soon. I guess Baby didn't like my yogurt and banana breakfast.

So, I'm 17 weeks along now. In addition to still puking every morning and getting that unbearable wave of fatigue in the afternoon, my face still looks worse than any "before" shot from a Proactiv commercial that I've ever seen. I in-all-seriousness look like I have some mutant version of the chicken pox and while my face may be the worst victim, it's not the only victim. I have weird piles of acne popping up in strange places: my neck, my scalp, my arms. This all convinces my mother that I'm having a girl but it convinces me of nothing other than the fact I very well may be having a Chuckie doll.

It's getting closer and closer (but not quickly enough!) to our February 24th anatomy scan. Last night, I had an extremely vivid and specific dream that Baby is a girl. This is only the second time I've pictured Baby as a girl this entire time. Girl, boy, whatever -- I just want it to be February 24th already!

As far as Baby goes, he or she is the size of...

...an onion this week!

I look forward to the fruit and vegetable comparisons each week and it always is the same thing: I can't believe how big Baby got and I can't imagine he or she getting any bigger. (Yeah, I know. This is nothing!)

Over the next four weeks, Baby's weight will increase approximately six times! His/her fingernails and toenails are beginning to grow from their nailbeds. Baby is perfecting his/her sucking and swallowing reflexes (and no matter what this says, I feel like Baby is practicing a kickboxing routine in there, too). Baby weighs five ounces this week and is a little over five inches long!

Baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone. The umbilical cord is growing stronger and thicker, too. Baby can move his/her joints now and even sweat glands are starting to develop. Baby's limbs are almost at their proper proportions and will now continue to grow evenly with his/her body. Baby is now capable of hearing and reacting to sounds even though hish/her ears are not yet structurally complete or fully functional.


  1. You look beautiful, Lindsay! And look at that baby bump! I can't wait to find out what baby is :)

  2. Congrats on the baby!!! I will be following you back!! I look forward to see you and this baby grow!!!
