3D4 Ultrasound Update - 17 Weeks

Yesterday we went for our FREE followup 3D/4D ultrasound at Prenatal Peek.  First off she is still a she!  As usual she was  laying face down and didn't really want to turn over for us much at all.  She seems to love her hands and it looked like she was sucking her thumb again.  She is getting bigger and space is getting tight for her so I am hoping that I will feel her move soon.

It is amazing to see her kicking around inside me and touching her face.  Jerry said it is amazing that there is a little human inside of me.  Yes it is amazing and a little miracle.

The video was not as good as last time so we are not going to post that but here are some of the better 3D4 pictures from yesterday.

Waving hi as she touches her face.  She is still a little pumpkin
and doesn't have her baby fat yet but she is so beautiful.

Touching her face and cuddling up.

To us it looks like she is sucking her thumb here.

17 Weeks:  "Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop."

Nursery:  This weekend we put together the crib and bureau along with the nightstand.  Things went pretty well and we only had a few mishaps.  I first started with the nightstand and had to call in Jerry to help me figure out how the first couple of pieces went together because it wasn't lining up then ding dong me started nailing on the back upside down.. ugh... Again Jerry saved the day and was able to get the backing off without breaking it.  The bureau went together without any trouble but took a bit of time.

The crib we put together last night and the only incident we had was Jerry cut himself when trying to get open the hardware, darn scissors!

I got my kit to make her a quilt and I am very happy with it.  I will post a picture and the details later.  The seller was very fast to ship (it was an Etsy find) and she sent me an email to give you all a discount.

I also received little bird decals I ordered as a custom order from another Etsy shop and we are very happy with those.   I am not so happy with the seller of the alphabet letters, she has had my order for 24 days and has yet to ship them.  She told me early last week (after I asked) that her daughter broke a letter so she had to do it over and she would ship it the next day, then the next day she didn't ship it and again said "tomorrow."  We are going on vacation Friday and I don't want them sitting on the porch while we are away for a week.  I am very annoyed with her at this point and I will be sure to leave my feedback on her site.

Baby Things:  Yesterday while we were out getting our nails done (needed a pedi more than you can imagine) and shopping for clothes we found a few things for little Ms. Annabelle at Old Navy and TJ Max (so cute).  I have a few things for her but I am holding off on buying a lot of clothing.

This is going to be a busy week as we get ready to fly up to see Family in New England this Friday and we will be gone for 10 days.  We are going to Maine first then driving down to Mass then it's off to Connecticut then home.... So if you don't hear from me for a while don't worry :-)
