17 weeks!

Pitahaya, dragon fruitphoto 2

Baby was being super stubborn last night 🙂 must’ve been scared because of the storms! But right above where it says “auto freeze” you can see a vertical line, that would be baby’s spine!! Then you can kind of see some smaller horizontal lines, those are it’s tiny little ribs 🙂

Our baby is the size of a dragon fruit! (or as a blog I read said, it is the size of an iPhone and weighs about that same amount too!

How far along? 17 weeks 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: gained 3 pounds

Maternity clothes? When it comes to wearing jeans (except 1-2 pairs) definitely! Too uncomfortable to wear tight jeans

Stretch marks? None

Sleep: it’s getting better now with my body pillow!

Best moment this week: Well last week I was part of my new job’s Kick off party, which was pretty fun! It’s just awesome to be apart of something so great. The clinic is the first onsite integrative medicine clinic in the whole country! Just…amazing! Otherwise, we had our one month OB check yesterday. As always, awesome to see our little baby! And for the first time, the baby was too big to fit on the whole ultrasound screen that they have in office!! It’s getting bigger and bigger every day 🙂 (so is mommy)! Heart beat was at 140 beats per minute (which is smack dab in the middle of the boy/girl heartbeat chart!)

Movement: I do believe so! I think within the next few weeks, it will be a lot easier to tell then before.

Food cravings: cravings haven’t been too crazy lately. I don’t really ever crave anything, just haven’t been a huge fan of meat still.

Anything making you queasy or sick: nothings made me sick recently. I’ve just tried to avoid the strong smells of food, if possible.

Have you started to show yet: yeah for sure! Yesterday I felt huge (which obviously I’m not yet, but just felt big!)

Leakage: none

Gender prediction: we are officially 3 weeks and 3 days away from knowing what it is!!! It’s thrown me for a loop though, I have no idea what it is! Just seeing that it’s healthy and the heart is beating how it’s supposed to makes me happy 🙂

Labor Signs: Wayyy to early!

Belly Button in or out? In, but I can tell that it’s starting to come out a little

Wedding rings on or off? On, but they get tight when it’s super hot out!

Happy or Moody most of the time: they are getting much better. I”m pretty much either happy or super tired now 🙂

Weekly Wisdom: just eat it, don’t think about the texture or taste, just eat it!

Milestones: Finally getting the clinic up and rolling and having the awesome kick off that we did! Otherwise, nothing too huge this week! We’re really excited for a 3 day weekend though!!! 🙂

Next appointments: we have our 20 week ultrasound on 7/25 then an appointment with Dr. Weston on 7/28!! This will be an exciting month!!
