Bumpdate-- 17 Weeks

Hmm. Sweet.

17 weeks! It's crazy but I still remember (very vividly) going in for a blood test and he said I was 4 weeks, 5 days pregnant. Where has the time gone?

How far along? 17W4D

Maternity clothes? Just wearing sweats/yoga pants around the house and regular clothes/Gap leggings if I go out. 

Stretch marks? No. Although I swear I saw one and was just a vein! My poor husband thought I fell/was dying/a dog was dying.

Sleep: Sleeping awesome. 

Best moment this week: Feeling Baby B a little bit and realizing I'm almost halfway there!

Baby B got this for my MIL for Mother's Day. We thought it was a onesie but now I'm wondering where the bottom half of it is? Lord I have a lot to learn. 

Miss Anything?: Unlimited Diet Coke, subs, bikini body, coffee. . . don't I say this every week?

Movement: Feeling a little here and there. Didn't feel much Sunday/Monday so I called the doctor Monday afternoon worrying my baby was dead. She said not to worry and she'll see me at my anatomy scan next week! She did remind me several times that it is still early for any serious movement. I also have a weird shaped something in there that makes feeling baby lots harder. 

Food cravings: Cried when I saw a Reese's commercial so sent my husband to Panera for a Cinnamon Crunch Bagel (go get one, you won't be disappointed) and the grocery for Reese Cups. He came home with: 2 Cinnamon Crunch Bagels, 2 Chocolate chip cookies, 1 bag of Reese's Pieces, 1 bag of Reese's minis, and 3 King Sized Reese Cups. This all coming from the girl who hasn't eaten chocolate in years

I'm sure this is coming, but no-- I only had 1 bagel and a king sized Reese cup. We gave the rest to our neighbors. :-) 

The cravings are definitely switching to sweets, though. Maybe there is a little girl in there! 

My husband ordered pizza at 10PM one night. Of course I had to have half a calzone.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken. Haven't had any in a good 2 or 3 months. The oven being on still makes me sick and so do cinnamon rolls. 

Symptoms: Still dizzy a lot and tired. 

Have you started to show yet: Just getting lots of stares.."Is she fat or pregnant?".. BOTH!

Gender: Find out a week from today...eeek!

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and tired.

Looking forward to:  Anatomy scan, seeing my MIL, seeing my dad after her, and moving!
