17 Weeks

Yesterday was 17 weeks!  I can't believe I'm only 3 weeks away from the halfway mark!  If you remember last week I talked about our dumb camera and yes, we had just as many problems last night!  We tried changing settings and changing it back to the default manufacturer's settings.  Still issues.  So we went around our house to find another spot that we could get a "yellow hand" instead of a "red hand" (neither are as clear as a "green hand") but yellow had to do.  I kept thinking the problem was standing in front of a shiny white door, but we got a "red hand" in front of any wall in my house!  Pretty sure I will never buy a Kodak camera again!  Canon Rebel here I come! *hint hint* hehe:)

I have an appointment tomorrow to hear the heartbeat and I can't wait!  It's such an amazing sound!  I would love if my doctor surprised me and let me get an ultrasound, but I don't think that's going to happen.  But I will at least get to schedule the big ultrasound tomorrow!

Baby is the size of a sweet potato (5.5 inches) this week.  Baby's nervous system is developing even more this week and its skeleton is forming from cartilage into bones.  And according to What To Expect, my uterus is about the size of a cantaloupe.  Yep, that looks about like what is under my shirt in that picture! :)
