17 weeks and great news

17 weeks- Baby's now the size of an onion!Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.
-Hopefully baby Wilson never has to USE these fingerprints!
Starting to feel a bit off balance? As your belly grows, your center of gravity changes, so you may begin to occasionally feel a little unsteady on your feet. Try to avoid situations with a high risk of falling. Wear low-heeled shoes to reduce your risk of taking a tumble.
-Ha! no thanks, I am still liking my heely heels!

I opted to do the optional triple screen test, this is a blood test that checks for signs of downs, and some other birth defects. Insurance covered it 100% so I figured why not, the nurse just called and all 3 tests came back negative! This is super good news!!!! The scary thing about these tests is that they can give you false positives but usually the negatives are pretty accurate, ya-hooo baby Wilson keep up the great work!

Another person to keep up the great work these days is Luker! He is once AGAIN the top closer for Citi for St. Louis! Way to go babe, I am so extremely proud of you... again!
