17 Weeks!

the crooked self portrait

 How far along? 17 weeks
Baby Size: Sweet potato  (I'm going by the What to Expect App, every site says something different)
Total weight gain/loss: 6lbs- I decided to weigh myself this week, clearly I can't take my own advice but I couldn't resist and I haven't gain anymore yet 
Maternity clothes?  Yes but mostly just maternity pants and regular tops 
Stretch marks? No and hoping it stays that way
Sleep:  Better- I'm getting more used to sleeping on my side and having less hip/back pain
Best moment this week: I'm pretty sure I felt my first baby kicks!
Miss Anything?  Nothing really this week
Movement: I was laying really still watching tv last night and I felt three little twinges that I've never felt before and I know it has to be a little kick- crazy!
Food cravings:  Still loving Milk! I eat Life cereal and milk every morning for breakfast and have a glass of chocolate milk with dinner
Anything making you queasy or sick:  chicken- I'm officially through eating chicken for awhile 
Have you started to show yet: Yes and if I wear a tighter top other people are starting to notice
Gender prediction: I'm still feeling Boy- we find out next week! I cannot wait!
 Labor Signs:  No
Belly Button in or out?  In
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy most of the time- I think the pregnant brain is kind of just giddy, sappy and happy. I swear I'm less b*tchy and type A than normal.
Looking forward to:  Gender ultrasound next week- I cannot wait!!


  1. You are a pretty prego!! You are so teeny tiny!!

  2. You look amazing! Yes, I was way less bitchy and crazy than normal while I was pregnant. It was pretty nice to feel so happy all the time! You're making me want to get pregnant again!

  3. So cute!! Can't wait to hear what baby's sex is! I think a girl :) and yes those fluttery things are kicks..so amazing huh!?

  4. You look so cute!

    I hated chicken my entire pregnancy as well but as soon as he popped out I could eat it with no problem. Cravings/Aversions are so weird like that.

  5. You look adorbs! And you must be SO anxious to get to next week's appointment!!!!

  6. How exciting!!!! I can't wait to find out the sex :) Did you make up the format you used here? I want to do something like this for my pregnancy too!

  11. Chicken was my aversion with BOTH pregnancies! The thought of touching raw (or even cooked) chicken on a bone-YUCK. My taste came back :-))
