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!
