17 weeks...23 To Go :)

So Christmas Festival and Christmas celebrations are finally over (well, we still have 1 more Christmas in Pottsborro this Sunday, so it's not over, but pretty much over :), and it never fails, I go and go and go and I always make myself sick.  This I'm sure was magnified by the fact I have a beach ball growing in my belly!  I've had this snot issue for about 2 weeks now and I can't shake it!

Other than that, week 17 brings some cool things too like more movement from Stout Seed # 2....this little baby is a mover and a groover, I'm already being uncomfortable crossing my legs because my belly is growing which could sound like a bad thing but it just encourages me that everything is going well, loving Joey more and more..she's getting so big, and realizing even more that I have an amazing husband who loves the Lord, me, his daughter, and new seed very much! Ahhhhh, with pregnancy also comes emotions, and I guess I'm in a sort of sappy mood :)  On with the belly pics and news....

 This little ditty is me with Joey at 17 weeks!  I remember loving this week because people could actually tell I was pregnant!  So much fun!

Here I am with Stout Seed # 2 at 17 weeks.  Please forgive the quality of the photo, but my camera is in the shop, and this was taken on the trusty old iPhone!! I am also wearing my new hat from Santa or maybe this is what I got from Joey???  I can't remember!!!  Either way, I love this hat :)

On with the news from Baby Center:

How your baby's growing (17 Weeks):

Your baby's skeleton is changingfrom 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.
