17 Weeks


How far along: 17 weeks

How big is baby?: Turnip this week... I don't even know how big a turnip is, but my app says it's about 5 inches and 5 ounces. 

Total weight gain: The doctor said Wednesday that I had gained 10 pounds, but I'm not sure that's accurate since they weigh me at different times each visit and wearing different amounts of clothing... my home scale says I've gained almost 8 pounds. I know it's not much of a difference, but 8 pounds makes me feel better than 10. 

Maternity clothes: Went shopping today for some real maternity clothes... I'm finally giving in. This week it's been crazy hard to find pants that fit, so I have to cave and get me some bump pants. 

Best moment of the week:
 Hearing the heartbeat again! It was nice because the nurse practitioner let us listen for a really long time. I was also cool because it was the first time Drew got to hear our little alien's heart! 

Food cravings: Those big soft pretzels that you pop in the microwave. So yummy with lots of salt :) 

Food aversions:  None! 

Symptoms: Still having some pain in my lower abs, most likely round ligament pain. Still get tired really easily, but having trouble sleeping through the night though I have been able to get more comfortable. My congestion the past couple of weeks seem to has gone away, but my back has been pretty sore. I'm kinda worried about how my hip is going to handle this pregnancy. Weight loss is really what made my hip problems better before, so I'm sure gaining it back is going to have a negative impact. 

Movement: Nothing yet, but hoping for soon! 

Gender: Get to find out March 1st, can't wait (until then you should vote on my poll over there on the right)

What I'm looking forward to: Movement to start and our March 1st anatomy/gender scan

What I miss: Still missing sleeping on my back, I can get kind of comfortable, but it's just not the same. 

Next appointment: March 1st!!!!!! 

Those pictures above were taken yesterday... this, is what I woke up with this morning:

I think I've popped!
