Baby Bump Update: Week 17

Baby Bump Week 17

Time: September 4th-10th

Developmental Milestones:  Baby’s ears are developing so he or she is able to hear our voices!  Tiny fingerprints have also formed.

Symptoms:  Feeling great except my sleeping patterns have really been affected the past couple of weeks.  I don’t remember the last time I’ve actually slept through the night!  Lately, my lower back and tailbone have started hurting.  I’ve gotten the go ahead from the doctor to see a chiropractor so hopefully I will get some information on some helpful stretches.  At my prenatal check-up last week, I received a flu shot- wow, my arm is still sore from the injection.  Ouch!

Cravings:  Nothing new this week!  Currently, loving Strawberry ice cream.

Highlights: The doctor found the Baby’s heartbeat immediately at our check-up last week!  It sounds so strong!  We also made THE appointment!  We will be finding out whether Baby is a he or she on September 20th!  J and I can’t wait.  I am also really looking forward to the first signs of movement, which should be happening anytime now.  Still waiting on developing that cute baby bump.
