17 Weeks

Baby is now the size of a large onion.  His or her skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it.  The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and it's little fingers and toes are now topped by one of a kind prints.

I had a really scary job interview this week;  same work place, just a different position.  I actually had to perform a 10 minute presentation... talk about terrifying!  Anyway, it went quite well and I just hope I'm not (secretly) discriminated against because I'm pregnant.  My work clothes are getting pretty tight and uncomfortable to wear, I don't know how much longer I'll be able to fit into them.  I have maternity uniforms on the way, but who knows how long it will take to receive them, and I have a feeling they are going to be hideous.  

I have been feeling pretty great; I have my old energy levels, which is a relief.  Being sick and tired all the time can be a bit depressing.  
Next week we are having an ultrasound and will be able to find out the sex!  I am so excited, I can't wait to see this little bubba, and I have been putting of buying stuff for bub until I knew, so I'll be able to go nuts.
