17 Weeks

So this week really got away from me and I realized I never did my 17 week update! 

17 Weeks
Baby is the size of a white onion 

This is our first "child" 
Sir Hemingway but we call him Hemmi
Every time we take photos he comes and watches so this time I wanted to include him. Besides, he's going to be a big brother after all! 

How far along? 17 Weeks

Total weight gain: Well I'm up to 112 pounds now.  Which is healthy for my height, just pretty weird for me to get used to.

Maternity clothes? I'm still using the belly bands. But when I'm home I will wear leggings or yoga pants. Jeans are to uncomfortable to wear all day long. I still wear all of my regular shirts, except for a few maternity shirts my sister-in-law gave me. 

Stretch marks? Nope, I use lotion morning and night.

Sleep: I think it's getting better. But the exhaustion is still happening everyday. 

Best moment of this week: Spending a whole day away with Caleb. Going out of town and experiencing new things with him is always my favorite thing to do. Plus, in a few months we won't be able to just decide last minute a day trip. 

Miss anything? Sleep. I'm still really missing that.  

Movement: Yes! I have been feeling more and more movement! 

Food cravings:  Salads and breakfast burritos. Which is weird to me since I have never ate a breakfast burrito in my life. I have been making them at home since I refuse to eat any type of fast food.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I still hate meat and certain vegetables. Chinese is on the list now since it made me sick a few weeks ago and the thought just turns my stomach. 

Gender Guesses: Not sure. But I have my guesses! And I'm SO curious to see if I have any sort of instinct. 

Labor signs: No way!

Symptoms: Fatigue. I was in bed and asleep at 9pm the one night. And 8:30 last night. I can't get enough sleep. Also I've been sneezing, coughing, and having a super stuffy nose. I'm also already starting to get achy. Like if I stand and walk for to long my hips start to almost burn, and I'm just pretty uncomfortable. I try my best right now not to complain because I know this is nothing compared to what I'll feel in the upcoming months. But some days I just can't help it. 

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: It depends on the day and the hour. I've had a few days where I've been in a really good mood. But other days I just can't seem to be happy.  

Looking forward to: MAY 22ND!! Also, we are going to the beach at the end of May. I can't wait! It's the first time going with Caleb's parents and I'm really looking forward to it. It'll be our last beach vacation before the baby comes.
