|Don't you just love the trash on the floor?|
How far along? 17 Weeks, 23 to go!
The baby is as big as: A sweet potato
Maternity clothes? I wish I wasn't so short so I could actually wear the maternity pants I bought. Instead they are being held hostage at my Dad's house getting hemmed.
Stretch marks? Nope. But I think it is time to invest in some bio oil or high quality lotion. I don't know if it is because it is winter or because my skin is stretching but good lord my skin is ITCHY!
How I am feeling: I can actually say great! Baby is going through a big growth spurt and I have had a lot of cramping but that is about it.
Best moment this week?:Making my 3D ultrasound appointment to see what bits this baby has! We find out Thursday.
Movement?: When dot was pregnant I remember feeling the puppies move around in her belly and yesterday, although not from the outside, I swore I felt an arm sweep or something. It was definitely movement but more serious than flutters.
Food cravings?: Fettuccine Alfredo and orange juice
Gender?: Still feeling girl, but I had a dream last night that we found out it was a boy and I cried. I chalk this up to husband and I's banter last night right before bed. It is our constant back and forth over boy or girl.
Labor Signs?: nope
Belly Button in or out?:innie
What I miss: I am still going to say sleep.
What I am looking forward to: Maternity clothes shopping with SIL this weekend. She called yesterday and said that she needs a little break from little man. He isn't adjusting well to my brother being gone and the schedule that entails.
Weekly Wisdom:If you are having a craving like... for instance fettuccine Alfredo, do yourself a favor and don't try to make the sauce yourself. Get the jarred stuff because if you mess it up and you're making the sauce you are kinda screwed.... OF COURSE I am not talking from personal experience or anything....
Milestones: We named the Fetus!!!! And I will announce said name with the gender next week. GET EXCITED!!!
