17 Weeks 3 Days

Baby #2 Update:
  • Is about five inches long from head to rump and weighs 5 oz.
  • Has begun to develop the all-important adipose tissue -- more affectionately known as baby fat.
  • Is hard at working transforming its skeleton from soft cartilage into solid bone.
I'm now 17 weeks and 3 days and feeling great! We met with our doctor here for the first time yesterday and I love her! She is so nice and spent a lot of time with us asking questions and making us feel real comfortable. The heart rate was 140 this time (170 last time!) and it was so wonderful to hear it! I haven't been to the doctor since I was 10 weeks so your mind starts to play tricks on you and think of bad things so it was so nice to hear that everything was going great! We go back in 4 weeks for our next appointment and ultrasound. This would be the big ultrasound where we find out the sex but of course we wont be hearing that part! =)

Keaton will now lift up my shirt and point to my belly if we ask him where his baby is. He says, "Hi baby!" while waving to my belly and then he gives it a kiss. It's so cute! I'll have to get it on camera soon!
