17 weeks down...23 weeks to go!

How far along? 17 glorious weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: I am up 6 pounds from my original, weight give or take the day
Maternity clothes? yes, much more comfortable expecially now that my belly is finally making an appearance~ name another time in life when you wish for that! lol
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: About the same. Last Monday was horrible and I was up since 1 am, but every other night I have slept really well this week. Odd.
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat again for sure, and feeling the beginning of movements.
Movement: Not a ton. I think this baby likes to sleep like daddy! However, I am pretty sure I got kicked a couple of times after rolling over in the middle of the night!
Food cravings: Ok so this last week over the fourth I had carvings for Guacamole, Shrimp Cocktail and Salt and Vinegar Pringles! Needless to say I indulged in all of them. :)
Gender: We find out in 3 weeks! But I still have no idea! Can not wait.
Labor Signs: Thank goodness no.
Belly Button in or out? Still in :)
What I miss: Besides other things I have mentioned...I miss Not gagging on my food! Totally new development this week and hoping it goes away soon!
What I am looking forward to: Feeling this baby move more!
Weekly Wisdom: Be forcefull with the doctors and make sure they answer all of your questions before you get shown out of the office!
Milestones: Hearing the baby's heartbeat again (155bpm) and knowing that everything is going to be fine with this baby!


  1. Glad you are sleeping better. For the record my belly button never popped out and as you remember I was HUGLEY pregnant.

  2. Actually I don't remember how big you were because I wasn't home for it! :( However you also were a couple weeks early, but here is to hoping my belly button stays in too!
