17 weeks!

19 more days till our anatomy scan! Can't wait to see our little guy again and see how much he has grown and finally shut people up about him being a him. Today at least he has been quite the little mover. Bouncing and kicking all over the place I think that Daniel even felt him this morning! He was really active after I had woken up and gone to the bathroom so I woke Daniel up and had him try and feel, of course once he put his hand there he stopped moving but there was a good couple of strong jumps that he said he felt after a few minutes. So yay! I still can't wait though for it to be a no guess thing where he can confidently say "I felt him!". Not to much longer.

-Your baby is about the size of a mango, approximately 6 inches long (head to rump) and weighs around 7 ounces.
-Their legs are now very long and constantly moving.
-Your baby's own unique finger prints begin to form this week.
-The cartilage they had is now turning to hard bone so keeping an extra amount of dairy/calcium in your diet is important
-If you were to measure your fundal height you would find that the top of your uterus is only about 2 inches or less from your belly button.

Today Daniel and I went to the farmers market for $25 we were able to get: grapes, okra, Asian pears, figs, two bunches of carrots, a cucumber, and a small jar of fresh (as in three day old) honey! It's all organic and all locally grown! Everything the sampled while we were there tasted fantastic.
