Little Clark III: 17 weeks

Dear baby,
My goodness, you are supposedly 5 inches head to rump, which seems rather big.  I've been feeling you move quite a bit more, which has been fun.  Took a glucose test this week, so we'll see how that goes.  I've been working really hard on eating healthily.  We are so excited for you, and have your ultrasound all scheduled for three weeks from today.  I'll admit that I am a bit nervous that we'll find out that your heart has stopped, or that something is wrong...I just feel SO good that something must be wrong.  Its like I'm not even pregnant, save for the fast growing nails, roasting hot feet, and belly.  But I do get tired, more with you than the others.  Perhaps because I'm closing in on thirty, and am not quite so spry as my 26 year old self.  Or perhaps because I'm literally running, bending and chasing after your brother, who is a bundle of energy.  I think your Dad is worried that I don't get enough rest.  I did have a few contractions this week, so I put my feet up and drank several glasses of water...they didn't return.  Will you have a similar disposition to James?  Go, go, go?  More low key?  However and whoever you are little one, we will love you.  We will love you forever and for always because you are our dear one.
-Mama + Dada
