How Far Along: 17 weeks (with the holiday last week I got behind and never got week 16 posted)
Baby’s Size: Turnip
Symptoms: I can finally eat again! I still don’t have a huge appetite but I am able to eat every meal which is wonderful. I am still tired some, but I think that is a symptom of working full time with a 2 year old, lol.
Weight Gain: I am currently down 5 pounds from when I got pregnant (+1 from my last post).
Maternity Clothes: Loving them and happy to finally have a little more of a noticeable bump (though not enough for people to be brave enough to ask about it).
Cravings: Still loving fried food. Just made my first batch of homemade ice cream and I can see that becoming an obsession…
Food Aversions: Still not wanting to eat fish
Gender Guess: We will find out on October 12. I am thinking of getting one of those Intelligender kits just for fun.
Medical Happenings: Had an appointment today and all looks good. Going in for my quad-screen some time this week (I hate having my blood drawn). Heart beat was nice and strong in the 150-160 range.
Emotional Stuff: So far I haven’t had crazy emotions yet.
Belly Button – In or Out? In
Movement: Just started feeling very slight movements that I would have never recognized if this was my first.
Sleep: Still having a hard time getting comfortable.
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: The other morning she said “mommy can I please have a baby brother.” I think it is because they have a new 2 month old baby boy at daycare.
