17 weeks

How far along? 17 weeks

Due Date: August 2, 2011

Total weight gain/loss: 4 pounds

Maternity clothes? All maternity jeans and some maternity shirts mostly for length.

Stretch Marks? Nothing yet....hope it stays this way.

Sleep: Not too bad this week, but I'm back to having a MILLION CRAZY DREAMS every night!  Matt even said I was back to talking nonsense in one of my dreams the other night.  I apparently like to have nonsense conversations with him during my dreams and never remember them in the morning. 

Best moment this week: It was actually this morning.  I worked 16 hours yesterday and took a nap at the hospital before driving the hour and a half home this morning.  When I got home, my hubby had completely cleaned up the kitchen (which I had destroyed with a million dishes from cooking on Sunday) and all of the dishes were hand washed and put away.  Sigh.......

Movement: Not yet....I occasionally get these twinges that I wonder if they are fetal movement and I just can't distinguish it yet. 

Food cravings: Pretty much anything this week.  I'm just loving food!

Food aversions: CHICKEN!
Gender: We still don't know, but hopefully this baby will cooperate on March 4th.  Yes, that's right....our ultrasound appointment has been moved up to March 4th from the 7th.  Only 10 days until we get to see this little one!  Anyone have any guesses? 

Labor Signs: Nada

Belly Button in or out? Innie

What I miss: Being able to "suck it in."

What I am looking forward to: Our big ultrasound and praying that we get good news that everything is perfect with our growing little one.
Milestones: Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.


  1. I guess girl too because I only have boys and somebody in the family needs to have a girl....and it won't be me! :)
