Mommy Sheng passed this lovely tag to me last April 4. Thanks for remembering me Mommy!
Anyway, I modified the tag just a little bit to make it unique for me. 🙂
The instruction was:
1. Take your latest picture. (I did but I only took my tummy part.)
2. Take your picture as natural as possible. (My tummy looks natural, right?)
3. Post your picture on your blog.
4. Post the rules.
5. Tag 10 people to do this tag.
So, here is my latest picture. That is how my tummy looks right now at 17 weeks!
Now, to tag 10 people…hmmm. I really don’t know who are in the mood to show their beautiful faces but if you want to grab the tag, please feel free to do so and leave a comment here. I will link you back as soon as you have posted your pic. Thanks in advance!
Anyway, speaking of 17 weeks, www.baby2see.com says that my baby’s developments are as follows:
* The umbilical cord is growing thicker and stronger.
* Fetus weight is just over 5 ounces (150g).
* Baby is about 5 inches (14cm) long crown to rump.
* and would be about 9 inches (23cm) head to toe, if it could stretch out.
* The retina has become sensitive to light.
* The first stools (meconium) are now beginning to accumulate.
17 weeksThey recycle the amniotic fluid by swallowing up to a litre a day. Meconium (composed of products of cell loss, digestive secretion and swallowed amniotic fluid), is accumulating in the bowel. Fat stores begin to develop under your baby’s skin this week. The fat will provide energy and help keep your baby warm after birth.
Baby’s eyes are looking forward now, but they are still firmly closed. The skeleton is tranforming from cartilage to bone. The bones remain flexible to make the journey through the birth canal easier. You can feel your uterus just below your bellybutton. If you put your fingers sideways and measure, it is about two finger-widths (1 inch) below your bellybutton. Your uterus is the size of a cantaloupe.
The crown to rump length of your growing baby is 5 to 5.6 inches (12.5 to 14cm) by this week. Weight of the fetus is about 5.25 ounces (150g).
Now, I am off to work. I need to research about a mig welder. I think my father-in-law needs one for his business.
