17 weeks

So, never again will I wake up in the mornings and freak out about my belly not being big enough.  That happened this morning, and tonight I am in absolute shock at how BIG it is.  Wowzers.  I really think some serious growth happened today.  And I wouldn't doubt it because I had lots of round ligament pain last night and today.

How Far along? 17 weeks!
Size of the Baby? According to my phone, he’s the size of a turnip.  About 5 inches and around 5 ounces.

Maternity Clothes? I have some, but I’m not really wearing them yet.  A friend gave me some stuff last week, and I just picked up a pair of jeans I had hemmed.  So I’ll probably be switching over soon.  Right now it’s just easier to wear regular dresses while they still fit.

Gender?  A baby BOY!!!!  Ahhh!

Movement?  He’s wigglin’, and I think maybe I feel something every now and then.  But nothing regular or that I’m sure is him vs. just a rumbly in my tummy.

Sleep? Sleep is going great right now.  I’m sleeping more than I thought I would at this point, and I love it!  I wake up in the middle of night once to tee tee, and I’m ready to go again when the alarm goes off around 7 am.  I don’t really understand how my bladder can hold so much urine, but it does.

Cravings? Still fruit.  Anything cold.  Ice cream.  Smoothies.  Doritos yesterday.

Symptoms?  Reflux.  I still vomit on occasion.  I think I’m going to really have to completely avoid fried and greasy things.  And I had a migraine last week.  Yuck!  I hope it’s the last one.

What I miss? A good ole sweaty workout.  I walk, but it's just not the same.  I've gone so long without a good workout that I'm afraid to start back right now.  I know it's ok to do it because I tell patients that all the time, but I'm a chicken.

Milestones?  finding out it's a BOY!!!!

Weight Gain? It totally depends on the time of day that I weigh.  Somewhere around 6-8 pounds.

What I’m nervous about?  Still the 20 week anatomy scan.  And my allergies.  

What I’m excited about?   Seeing my college roommates for a girls weekend this weekend!  

In honor of the first day of spring, Caleb took my 17 week pic on the back deck this afternoon.  And man oh man do I have a belly.  I'm blaming the way it looks on what I'm wearing plus how I'm holding my arms.

There's no doubt this girl is preggo!
