17 Week - Bump Date


How far along: 17 Weeks

Baby Size: The size of a turnip, 5 oz. and 5 inches long

Weight gain:  wobbling between -3 and -2 pounds, I know the weight gain should be starting anytime soon!

Maternity clothes: Maternity pants and maternity leggings (I actually had an allergic reaction to the leggings this week though....I think I might have to put those leggings away since my skin can't breathe in those)  My winter shirts are pretty much useless with this growing belly and I am SO sick of wearing them!  

Stretch marks: None so far! I started using my belly balm too.
Sleep: AWESOME over the weekend (I'm talking 12 hours Saturday and 11 hours Sunday) and then the week started over and I have slept AWFUL the last couple of nights.  In fact, I overslept on Monday....
Gender: It's a BOY!

Movement: None, at least I don't think any yet.

Best moment this week: Hearing Baby K's heartbeat on the doppler Tuesday at my Dr. Appt.  We could also hear him wiggling around on the doppler.
Looking forward to: warmer weather and feeling baby boy move around

Food cravings: Cola slushies and cheez it's
  Anything making you queasy or sick: my cat's wet!  Not that I eat it, but spooning it into a bowl for him every morning is torture.  He's lucky he's cute and that I love him so!
Labor Signs: Nothing and that's a GOOD thing!  
What I miss: Being about to get up from the couch fast and lying in bed and not being in pain.  The sciatic nerve is killing me lately.  I walk around like an old person sometimes.  I also miss being able to roll from one side to the other without being in pain because of ligament pain.  (I'm seriously being a whiner right now....I know).
Symptoms: I am FINALLY starting to look pregnant. 

Nursery: For the past couple of weeks, Andy and I keep saying that we are going to start on the baby room, and we still haven't.  Our goal is to work on it Saturday!  YAY!!  We do have paint colors picked out!

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Mood: Super crabby this week.  I haven't been sleeping well and this gloomy weather all week has made my mood just plain awful!  Ask my husband, he will agree, SUPER CRABBY!  Wednesday night I was so tired after work that I was in jammies, washed face and glasses on by 5 pm.  I had no desire to take a bump photo that night.  That's why you get a bathroom pic from this morning.  Plus the other bump pics I've been taking, I don't really like.  I feel like I look AWFUL in them.  My face looks huge and I'm only 17 weeks.  :(
