17 week Belly Pictures

What Tiny’s been up to this week: Don’t be too shocked but… your baby is EVEN bigger than it was last week, not to mention getting cuter, and smarter every day! As you’ve come to expect, there’s no shortage of growth and development this week: your fantastic little bean stalk has added yet another half inch to their overall height– making them nearly half a foot long! Their little limbs have reached (or are within one week of) their relative proportions, and will continue to grow evenly with the rest of the body after this week. Reactive listening has begun for your baby, even though their ears are not yet structurally complete or fully functional. Meanwhile, different parts of their astonishingly complex brain are developing to process your little one’s hearing and other senses, (you know, sight, smell, taste and touch). Mind boggling factoid of the week: if you’re having going to have a little girl, her ovaries have already produced millions of primordial egg cells, which, within a few weeks, will develop into actual eggs! Phew… just wait till she’s a teenager eh?

The belly! I think the flat part up front is starting to round out. Rob disagrees. :p
This one is kind of dark but it’s my view when I try and see my feet. Seriously. That’s all I can see anymore. lol
Tiny’s first close-up! Well, not counting the ultrasounds.
And of course, on from the side in color. I think I look smaller in this one though.
(FYI: My shirt says “I’m IRISH, I only look sweet and innocent.” lol)
