17w6d - Was that you baby?!

Well, first things first. Here is my belly pic for the week:
I am still changing shape and size all day long, but my belly is getting harder and is now still there when I wake up in the morning. The baby has been very active the past couple days. Last night I was sitting on the couch, feeling all kinds of bumps, thumps, and wiggles in there. I had my hand on my belly and felt a little kick from the inside and on the palm of my hand!! I was so excited, so of course K was sitting there and I wanted him to feel it, too. But he had his hand there for a long time and even when I felt the baby moving inside he couldn't feel it outside. There was one time that the baby kicked and he said, "Was that it?!" but where he said he felt it with his hand wasn't the same place that I felt it on the inside, so I'm not convinced he actually felt it. Oh well, we have plenty of time and he'll be able to feel the movements eventually. :)

I haven't shared my "baby is this big" pictures in a while, but this week's is very interesting to me. Week 18 - baby is the size of a sweet potato. Now...you may think, "Aww, sweet potato...how sweet." But look at the picture they give me for my little sweet potato:I'm sorry, but that's gross. I mean...is that hair growing out of the left side? Eew. Next week is a mango. I like that much better, so I think I'll pretend my baby skips the hairy bumpy potato stage and goes straight to a mango.
