Pregnancy, 17 Weeks!!!

How far along: 17 weeks

Due Date: Feb. 1, 2014

Total Weight Gain/Loss: My weight is back to pre-pregnancy.. thanks to being so sick so often. Ugh. 

Maternity clothes: I've been in maternity clothes since around 7 weeks but I've now outgrown all the larger non-maternity tops I was also wearing. Looks like it's all maternity from here on out and I really need to go shopping. Funny how my weight has hardly changed but I'm definitely getting a bump.

Stretch marks: I have a few from my second pregnancy. We'll see if this pregnancy adds a few more.

Sleep: Great!

Symptoms: Tired, irritable, a little morning sickness, a little heartburn and WAY too many migraine/vomiting/bedridden spells that last for 2-3 days at a time. :/ 

Food cravings: I crave random things all the time but can't eat most of them. Eating lots of fruits, applesauce and protein. Boring but good for me... 

Food aversions: Lots!

Labor signs: Nothing, thank goodness.

Belly button - in or out? In 

What I miss: Feeling better and my blessed migraine meds! 

What I am looking forward to: Finding out what we're having {for sure} in about 3-4 weeks! 

Movement: I've definitely felt lots of flutters! :) 

Milestones: Reaching the second trimester! Feeling the baby move and hearing the baby's heartbeat! 

How big is baby: About the size of an avocado.

Gender: We *think* we know after two early sonograms but the tech never acted 100% certain so we're waiting until the big 20 week sonogram at the OB office. I can't tell you how disappointed I am that the early sonogram thing didn't go better. :/ 

Names: Still thinking. I've thought I was settled on girl names 10 times but nothing seems right after a few days. I have one boy name that I've loved for a few years but not sure if I still love it that much and hubby isn't crazy about it. We do have one boy name that we will both settle on if we have to. Middle names for both a boy or a girl are pretty much set though. :) 

Best moment last week: Feeling baby flutters and seeing my baby on the ultrasound this morning. Even though we didn't get the 100% gender results we wanted it was still fun to see the baby again today. :)
