Seventeen Weeks...

My goodness me! Seventeen weeks already! I suppose I should give you a belly shot shouldn't I? Well, here's me two weeks ago at 15 weeks...


And here I am today...



Now you may think "not much difference there" but, keep in mind I've had the flu for a week - gosh I tell you - yuk! And therefore I haven't been able to do the enormous amount of eating I normally do. Which might be a good thing I suppose. The nurses at the hospital will probably all croon about saying "oh, haven't you done well - not so much weight gain in the first seventeen weeks!" - unlike last time, where the doc made me swear off McDonalds at my 15 week appointment...ha!

But anyhow, here we are, feeling baby movement all over the place and actually being able to feel it and see it from the outside, even! I tell you, that is truly awesome! Last night I think the babe was practicing one of the routines from "West Side Story" in there. I tried telling the babe it was already in America but it didn't pay any attention: to focused on acrobatics!

So there's my update for week 17! Two weeks today is the "big ultrasound"...

I dunno! Seems such a short time ago that I was just staring at those tests, and now here I am with a jumpy, wiggly little person in me! :D
