How far along? 17 Weeks. Baby is the size of: a Nintendo controller, a pomegranate, a creme brulee (which sounds delish!), and a chipmunk.
Maternity clothes? Wearing maternity pants, a few tops (some of my tunic-y tops still fit), and can still wear maternity dresses- like the one in the pic for the week.
Sleep: Not too bad. Learned that baby is sitting RIGHT next to my bladder (sitting very low) so that explains the middle of the night potty breaks.
Best moment this week: Finding out the gender! It’s a girl!
Miss anything? Laying fully on my stomach. I’m doing this side twist thing. I also had a sushi craving I ignored. I know I can eat cooked sushi, but I wanted a spicy tuna roll, dangit.
Movement: Nope. Actually found out I have an anterior placenta, which may make it harder to feel movements for a while. We saw baby punching and moving during our scan…but it was all at the placenta which I can’t feel.
Food cravings: LOTS of fruit cravings. Had a delicious smoothie for breakfast yesterday which hit the spot.
Anything making you queasy or sick: A few smells. Had a moment with some boxed pulled pork last week. When Tyler opened the to-go box, I gagged. It just smelled AWFUL.
Symptoms: A little emotional stuff, especially when I’m stressed to boot.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy. Had a couple bad days.
Looking forward to: Choosing a name. We have talked about some and have one we like..but I’m not ready to commit yet.
We also have started the shopping. My husband thinks I’m shopping because it’s a girl. Nope. I would have bought a boy cute stuff too. But there’s just MORE cute stuff for a girl. A local kid’s boutique is closing and Monday at lunch mom and I hit it up. Between the two of us- we bought like 13 outfits! ha!
So that’s where we are! Doctor’s appointment next week. Almost halfway there!
