17 weeks

I'm 17 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:
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!
