17 Weeks and A Few Updates



How far along? 17 weeks
How big is Baby? 5 inches and the size of an onion (my new favorite food, so I thought this was funny!)!
Total weight gain/loss: 9 pounds
Maternity clothes? very comfy and need more
Stretch marks? No, let's pray it stays that way!
Sleep: Doing better
Best moment this week: feeling baby multiple times a day!
Movement: Yes, quite a bit it seems for flutters!
Food cravings: Cheeseburgers have been the craving of the week. I also LOVE onions right now and could eat them with everything.
Gender: BIG US is in 6 days!!!! So excited!!! We are on the fence about our gender party right now. I don't think I can keep it a secret for 10 days and with our obligations and family's obligations, it just doesn't seem like we will have time for it. We are trying to come up with a cool, unique way of telling anyway!
Labor Signs: none, thank goodness!
Belly Button in or out? In and I pray it stays that way. It freaks me out for some reason! Ha!
What I am looking forward to: my big US!!!
Milestones: making it this far
I did go ahead and go to yoga last night and I am SO HAPPY I did. I met a girl that is due one day after me and it seems like it will help my back. I won't be able to go for a couple of weeks, but should be able to get back at it at the end of the month.
In other happy news, Dr. Smith arrived back late last night and made a surprise visit in my office this morning! He told me that the best word to describe how he felt about his trip was overwhelming. That says a lot coming from him, trust me. I plan to do another post tomorrow about his trip and about the preparation for the next one in about 8 days.

I can't really tell if you are getting bigger or not. You should wear the same shirt that is close fitting every time you take the weekly update pictures. Then readers can really tell if you've gotten bigger or are the same as before you got pregnant. Right now it looks like you're the same size as before you got pregnant. I can't believe you're already wearing maternity clothes at 17 weeks! You look happy though which is wonderful!

Um, yeah you do NOT look the same as before you were pregnant. You have a cute little bump, which you did not have before! :)

You are an adorable pregnant lady! I love following your blog. I went thru infertility for 8 years many years ago but eventually had 3 wonderful daughters! I can't wait to find out what you are having.
