17 weeks...... and updates

We have been settling in to Mobile and waiting for our house to close so we can finally settle into a home instead of being in the rental. A rental (while nice on our pockets$$$$) just doesn't feel like home especially when your pregnant. But our paperwork was sent to the home office on Saturday and we should close about 10 business days from then. So we are just around the corner and it can't come soon enough! :)

Last week we went on a canoe trip with the middle school age and we had fun! This is a trip they take every summer and they enjoyed the day event! By the end of the day I was tired but it was worth it.

This week we have an appointment on Thursday to try and find out the sex of the baby! YAY!:)

My afternoon sickness is almost gone and my morning sickness has eased up a little.... last week I had one morning that I didn't actually get sick I just felt bad.... so that's improvement! And I'm not getting sick in the car unless its a really long trip. So it hasn't gone away but I'm still not crossing it out! All I can do is hope :)

Eric bought me my first maternity item.... its a pretty blue dress..... maybe Ill get a belly shot in it soon ( I know some of you have asked for the belly shot). He also bought me a few shirts (not from the maternity store) but that will be great for when the belly gets bigger and I can wear them and the dress even after the baby is born! My mom called today and told me she had bought me a few items as well!

HERE IS THE 17 WEEK UPDATE:

How your baby's growing: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
