Pregnancy Update #2

Ladies and gentleman, I give you the bump:

(Sorry for the creepy shadow)

How far along: 17 weeks and 4 days.
How big is your baby: Petite is the size of a onion (about 5 inches long and 6 ounces).
Total weight gain? At my last appointment, I had gained 6 pounds total, which according to my Dr. is right on track.
Maternity clothes: I'm wearing my maternity jeans and work pants but I gain still fit into most of my "regular" tops. I am sure in a few week this will not be the case.
Stretch marks: None so far - PRAISE THE LORD! I try to lotion up every day but sometimes, I forget.
Movement: I haven't felt anything yet. According to what I've read online, I will be feeling something around week 21-23.
Sleep: I'm not sleeping all that great at night, unless I'm dead tired. I wake up once to use the potty and toss and turn a lot. I still take lots of naps on the weekend. It's my favorite new hobby.
Best moment this week: I'm going for my 18 week appointment tomorrow and we will be scheduling the ultrasound that will HOPEFULLY tell us if we are having an Emma or a Connor.
Food cravings: I don't crave a lot of anything. I've drank more more milk in the last 17 weeks than I have in my entire 29 years but I just like how cold it is. Speaking of cold, I don't like foods that are served hot. I prefer most foods cold.
Labor signs: NONE! It will be a while before I get to report on this!
Belly button in or out: In. I don't ever want to have it out but odds are, I will. Boo! Hiss!
What I miss: Wearing pants/bottoms with a zipper and button!
What I'm looking forward to: Finding out what we are having! Once we know that, we can start working on the nursery and referring to the baby as Emma or Connor.


  1. You looks great!!! Oh I cant wait to see what you are fun!!

  2. You look so cute! Finding out the gender is definitely one of the best moments of pregnancy!
