I'm 17 weeks!
How Far Along: 17 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of an onion! (I copied this post from Hollis days. Ignore that it said Baby H. I really don't think he will have an H name).
Maternity Clothes: I got a few pairs of pants from Gap Maternity. Other than that I'm making normal clothes work for now.
Gender: Sweet baby boy. Still not 100% sure on his name. My mom keeps trying to get me to tell her and says she better not find out on Facebook. ha!
Movement: Just last night I felt him moving big time when I was in bed!!!
Sleep: Sleeping great!
What I miss: Not a lot
Cravings: Just a big salt lick. :-)
Symptons: I'm actually feeling pretty great. I have a lot more energy right now and I'm not sick anymore. I just get tired at night. But I'm 40 with two small kids and I'm working. That would be true even if I wasn't pregnant.
Best Moment: I was negative for the spina bifada test. Every test that comes back negative I breathe a sigh of relief. I don't think I will let myself get fully excited until we have our ultrasound in a few weeks. I'm so nervous of the "what ifs" but I'm just trusting he will be okay.
I have found my perfect pregnancy outfit. I have never liked Pikos because I feel like they make me look pregnant. But now that I'm ACTUALLY pregnant - they are perfection. And I got some printed leggings and this was the best! Like wearing pajamas. I'm going back for more in other colors. Maybe I will even go crazy and add a scarf.
So here we go. I'm carrying him pretty low I think. But I carried Hollis low too. People kept saying they thought she was a girl she was so low.
I'm almost halfway there. Things are flying by!
