How Far Along?: 17.3 Weeks
Baby is the size of: Onion
Total Weight Gain: +9lbs
Maternity Clothes? Yes. I need to expand my collection. Any suggestions?
Stretch Marks? Nope, but skin is starting to get a little itchy. The freezing cold weather isn’t helping.
Sleep? Not too bad this week. I think exercising is helping. I have had some heartburn creeping up.
Best Moment This Week? Feeling legitimate movement from baby (not having to wonder if it is gas!)
Movement?: Definitely. I feel the most activity after dinner until before I go to sleep. It makes this seem so much more real! I can’t wait for hubby to be able to feel it.
Food Cravings?: Candy, which is very unusual for me. Valentine’s Day candy is everywhere and I can’t stop eating it.
Anything making you queasy?: If I move around too quickly – bending over or rushing up the steps – I get a little queasy.
Baby Bump?: Yes! It is still looking like a small pillow covering my whole belly – hoping it begins to take shape.
Gender Prediction?: Time will tell! 1.5 weeks to go! I’m still thinking boy.
Labor Signs?: My Braxton Hicks (or whatever that was) seems to have resolved this week, thank goodness!
Belly Button In or Out?: In but getting bigger and flatter.
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Happy or Moody?: Happy, happy, happy!
Miss Anything?: Margaritas. I’ve realized that is 75% of the reason why I like Mexican food.
Looking forward to?: A surprise 90th birthday party for my Gram next weekend!
