17 Weeks

How far along? 
17 weeks!

How big is baby? 
The size of a turnip...which we planted this year, but I personally have never cooked or eaten

Total weight gain?
At my appointment this afternoon, I was up 3.5 pounds total and my midwife pronounced herself "unimpressed" with my weight gain. She recommended more food, particularly protein - meat, cheese, yogurt, eggs, etc. That's fine, I'll do it, but I'm also self-prescribing a staple from my pregnancy with Sweets - the Oreo cookie milkshake. Oreos, vanilla ice cream and whole milk all blended together...super healthy, no, but full of calories and totally scrumptious, yes.

Maternity clothes?
 Still a mix. I chose a pair of maternity jeans today and 10 minutes after arriving at work I was sorry. I forgot how much those darn things fall down all day, especially when you're not really big enough to fill them out!

Not great this :( Sweets has been restless for some reason and had a couple of night accidents that required full on pj changes and middle of the night bedding changes.

Best moment of the week?
I'd have to go with my appointment today, since I got to hear G2's beautiful heartbeat again. And my midwife said she can totally understand why I'm feeling movement, since baby kicked the dopler pretty good!

Food cravings?
 All foods. All the time. Balsamic vinegar is tasting particular delicious to me this week.

Food aversions?
 Ha ha, what are those? If it's food, I want it.

 I'm definitely back to feeling the round ligament pain again, my nose is dry and stuffy, dehydration headaches, and a few nights of heartburn. I forgot how much fun the heartburn isn't.

 Stronger every day and I love it! 

 Any guesses, dear readers? 

What I’m looking forward to?
My baby turns THREE on Thursday! He told me today he didn't want to be three, he wanted to be one. My sweet boy. How did he get so big?

What I miss?
Not having to constantly force myself to drink water all day. Ug. Water is so boring, but if I don't do it, I get massive headaches.

Weekly Wisdom?
The 17 week mark is officially the time when you start having to be careful when you sneeze...if you know what I mean ;)

Scheduled our anatomy scan for August 29th!
