17 weeks



How far along? 17 weeks - 4 months and 1 week!

Baby's size? My baby bean is the size of a turnip and about 5 ounces in weight - I cant wait till we get to 1 lb!

Weight Gain? Well Im not quite sure. I know my belly is expanding, but the only time I weigh myself is at the doctor. I'm pretty active these days, so hopefully Im slowly gaining weight the healthy way. I have to admit tho, it's so hard to be 'good'. I want Coldstone creamery like you wouldn't believe! Oh and your gonna be grossed out (some of you), but when I was a teenager I loved cottage cheese with cheetos - that obsession is back!

Maternity clothes? I can still wear my regular tops, but my mamacita just took me maternity clothes shopping and got me a bunch of cute tops and my 1st pair of maternity jeans!! Love them :)

Stretch marks? Nope. I've still been using the EVOO all over my belly and boobs at night and the cocoa butter lotion during the day time. I know A LOT of it has to do with genetics, and my mom and sister dont have any on their bellies, so I'm hoping I'll get lucky :)

Belly button in or out? Still in, but it's starting to creep out

Sleep? I want it and crave it all the time. Even laying here typing this, I want a nap. I fall asleep super fast and get up 1-2 times to pee in the middle of the night, but can fall back asleep with no problem. If I had it my way, I'd sleep about 9 hours a night (like last night hehe)

Foods I am loving? ice cream! But it has to be my combo I get at coldstone creamery. Also, scrambled eggs with salsa and 2 pieces of toast (my absolute FAVORITE meal these days) And of course - cottage cheese with cheetos.

Foods I am hating? Still don't do very well with chicken

Best moment this week? Feeling the first flutter of our baby bean! I have felt it 2 other times, but the first time it was cause I put a flash light to my belly (read about it on babycenter.com and it works!!)

Movement? See above

Symptoms? Im tired and hungry a lot!! Also I have to get up from laying down REALLY slow, otherwise I get real light headed.

Gender? 99.9999% sure it's a boy and my family is still thinking boy, we find out in 23 days, September 1st :)

What I miss? Margaritas, sushi - but it's worth every moment I'll have with my little baby

What I'm looking forward to? Finding out the sex on the 1st, and my next appointment on the 24th :)
