17 Weeks

 I feel like my bump looks better in this picture than in real life. :)  I'm ready for it to be a little more like a "D" and less like a "B"... you know?  Oh, and yes I am wearing flip flops!  It was beautiful this weekend.  Don't get all in a tizzy though.  The cold is suppose to come back this week.

How far along: 17 weeks

Size of baby: Baby is the size of an onion

Total weight gain/loss: +8 total

Maternity Clothes: the same--maternity pants, regular sweat pants and a mix of regular and maternity shirts.

Gender: We find out on February 15th!!!!!!!!!

Movement: Yes!  Mostly during Little Man's nap time.  We're going to have to have a talk about 2 o'clock being sleep time and not play time!

Sleep: It depends on the day.  There have been a few nights where I struggled to get to sleep, or woke up more than usual during the night.  I am still exhausted though.   I think I'm more tired this trimester than I was the first!  A lot of days I take a nap while Little Man is at preschool, and then I take another nap while he naps.  I wish I didn't.  I try not too, but the feeling of being tired is too overwhelming.  Then, surprisingly, I can still go to bed and get about 7 or 7 1/2 hours of sleep at night.  I think my snoogle (pregnancy pillow) makes me hot.

What I miss: hot dogs!

Cravings: cheezits, juice

Food aversions: none

Symptoms: some round ligament pain, being exhausted, thirsty

Best moment of the week: feeling baby for the first time!

Fun Purchases: the swing!


  1. I was always tired when I was pregnant with Ryan too, I remember that vividly. It was not fun, hopefully you'll start to get more energy back by the 3rd Trimester..just keep on sleeping, obviously your body is needing it! You look adorable and that's a definite baby cute :) (and so jealous you get to wear flip flops!)
