17 weeks & counting...

Sorry for the late (& short) post this week... Things have been really busy for the Bakers! I have lots to update you on, but it will have to wait until I have more time to post :(

In the meantime, here's what's going on with Baby Baker this week:

Your Pregnancy: Week 17 (

What You're Thinking:
"OMG! Is something crawling on my stomach? Oh, wait! That was the baby!"

Your Baby
Packing on the pounds is what it's all about for baby this week. He's adding fat stores that will keep him warm and cozy after he's born. Your baby's weight will increase approximately six times over the next four weeks. Good to know you're not the only one tipping the scale. Also this week:

Your baby is hard at work honing his sucking and swallowing reflexes—all the better for eating that 2 AM (and 5 AM, and 8 AM ...) meal in a few months! The finger- and toenails are beginning to grow from their nail beds, which would explain why he'll need them trimmed almost as soon as he's born!

Your baby weighs nearly 5 ounces and is a little over 5 inches long—about the size of a baked potato (load on the butter and sour cream, please).
