17 weeks

Today I am 17 weeks pregnant, I really cant believe that, it has gone by pretty fast.
I don't know if I have felt life yet, I think I may, but it is so little and so non-often it is hard to tell, I'll be excited when I can feel it and know what it is, although I am sure by the end if it kicking, and poking and moving I will be ready for the good old days!
I am so anxious about finding out what it is, I cant believe people will wait till it is born, I am just way to impatient. I have been buying stuff, that is cute and on sale, I figure I am with in the 90 days to return in case I have bought the wrong color for the baby. oh man!

well here are some facts about my little Kumquat (that's what mom calls it!)
Your baby's skeleton is changing from 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.
