Baby E. 17 weeks

17 weeks edited
*Not the greatest picture to see the growth of this belly! I finally convinced hubby to take it & he was rushing me! 

Due Date: June 24, 2013

Baby's size: Sweet Potato or apple, depending on which source you use. I don’t see how those two are close in size & I love sweet potatoes, so let’s go with that one!

How far along: 17 weeks!

Sleep: Not really. Not sure if it’s because of this head cold my kindergartners gave me or if it’s just baby symptoms. I do know that I pee every morning at 3:30. No change in that schedule for the past week.

Maternity Clothes: I wore a pair of maternity jeans this week. They. Are. Comfortable. Not gonna lie about it. But it’s still leggings and dresses most of the time.

Food cravings: This one is so weird for me to answer. What really is a craving? I eat an onion bagel every morning. Does that make it a craving or just my morning routine?

Food aversions: After finding a fly in my vinegar, I’m going with that for this week. It’s sad really. I love my vinegar.

Symptoms I Have: The sciatic pain is still large and in charge. I was told to try prenatal yoga, so fingers crossed that helps! 

Doctor’s Appointment: Jan. 29th! We go for our anatomy scan & baby better cooperate at that one!

Movement: Is it gas or is it baby? That is still the question…

Belly Button: Still in.

Gender: Ummmm….no. Technician told us 85% of her guess was in one park, but we are holding that close until the 29th when we find out the 100% guess.

Best moment of the week:
Seeing my belly poke out just a little bit more! And taking baby to his/her second concert tonight! I’m taking my little sister to see Winter Jam with a friend & her daughter! Hope babies ready to rock!

What I’m looking forward to:
Feeling little bit move!

What I miss: Not having to pee every half hour. This one might never change.

Thoughts: This week has been busy! I’m definitely realizing that I need so much more rest while I’m trying to cook this baby & that “rest” has been hard to get lately. I’m hoping that I can put myself on a better schedule. And by hoping, I’m sure it won’t really happen. But a girl can dream, right? Still totally trusting God with our next step as a family! Not always easy, but I’m sticking with my word.

And because I didn’t really show a 16 week picture last week, here ya go. I’m sure you’ve all been anxiously awaiting it.
