Le Petit Oignon

Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints.
I've felt the little flutters of my babe moving! Last night in class, there was a definite, "push," for lack of a better word. I think it was pushing of my tummy to do a backflip or something :)
How far along? 17 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Lost 3 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Not yet...just my "jimmy-rig" on one pair of jeans
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Interrupted nightly by frequent potty breaks and coughing attacks.
Best moment this week: Feeling a definite movement!
Movement: Sporadic. And awesome when it happens :)
Food cravings: Lemonade & Bobba's oranges.
Gender: We find out on July 2nd as long as baby cooperates!
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? Still in, but I can see the bottom of it now! So weird!
What I miss: Sleeping soundly through the night. I guess I'm getting prepared for when the baby comes!
What I am looking forward to: Getting tan at beach day tomorrow!
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep when you need it. Naps are my best friend :)
Milestones: The baby can hear us now! We talk to him/her all the time. Matt even plays his guitar for baby while we sing songs.

Johnny always played his guitar for Zeke and now Zeke LOVES music :). It's so fun!
