One Fish, Two Fish

Week 17 September 14, 2010

(Is it only week 17? The bad thing about finding out you’re pregnant so early is that it feels like you’ve been pregnant for a lifetime by week 17.)

Today Baby is about five inches long and weighs about five ounces. How very symmetrical! Five ounces is supposed to be like the weight of a turnip. Hmm. I should have picked up a turnip at the grocery store today. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have gained a grand total of 2.5 pounds so far, which is right about where I should be, I think. My neighbor asked me last night if I could still see my feet. (This is the same neighbor that talks to my boobs, because “they’re getting really big, Kristin.” Oh really? I couldn’t tell. They’re always huge.) Yes, I can see my feet, though I don’t know if it’s Second Baby Syndrome, or just that I’m carrying a girl, but I feel like my belly has shot up and out more quickly. I guess it’s probably a combination of both.

Baby Turnip is moving all over. I was singing yesterday and could feel her jumping and wiggling all over. That is the thing I will miss most about not being pregnant. I love feeling the little dancer in there.

So, cheers to week 17! May the next twenty-three weeks fly by! ๐Ÿ™‚
