How far along? 17 weeks and the little one is the size of an onion this week.
Maternity clothes: On Monday I had the tough realization that no matter how much I want to try and still wear my dress pants to work, no can do. After only a few hours, my skin was starting to rub raw because they were just too tight. I now have my first pair of maternity dress pants that we found at Babies ‘R’ Us for only $5!! And they are super comfy!!
Sleep: Still going great. I did notice a few nights ago that my back felt a little funny when I woke up sleeping on my back.
Symptoms: See movement below
Food cravings: None still
Stretch marks? Might be noticing some more stretching so am using some body lotion after my shower each day
Total weight gain: This past week I really grew in bump size and also partied all weekend for my sister’s college grad, father’s day, and then my sister’s birthday. So between all those things I’m up about 2 pounds. Not sure if I’ll lose it again but we’ll see.
Movement: About 95% sure I felt baby move for the first time on Monday (16 weeks 5 days)!! I was driving to work and it felt like an organ had a heartbeat for a few seconds or something. I’m still waiting to feel it again though.
Gender: Unknown still
Labor Signs: None
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding ring on or off? On
Happy or moody: Happy
Best moment this week: Feeling little nugget of course!!
Looking forward to: Our next prenatal appointment next week. Get to meet our second midwife finally. :)
