Wow, 17 weeks! I went to the doctor on October 15th and they set my apt for my ultrasound on October 27th! I'm so stinkin excited! My family and I need a little joy in our lives with all the sadness that has been in our hearts for the past 3 weeks. I still have such a strong feeling that its going to be a girl, since Ron was so convinced it was. He was the only one that had an intuition and now that he's gone, I just really feel like he is probably right. Guess we will see in a couple days if he's right!
The update from babycenter was...
Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
I'll be back on in two days to give you the BIG news!!!!!
