17 Week Progress

This week is an exciting week for my baby!! He/she is officially the size of a onion.....yes, an onion!

This week the baby's 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 those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now and is around 5 inches long from head to bottom. He/she can move his/her joints, and his/her sweat glands are starting to develop.
