Week 17

Week 17

How big is the baby:  Baby is as big as a turnip! I had no idea what a turnip was. So I looked it up. It's this thingy! Who knew! Well I'm sure plenty of you did. But I totally didn't. And that looks really big, but my little app said Baby is as big as my palm. So. uhm, maybe?  Anyway, here is a picture
 of a turnip. Just because.

Weight Gain/Loss:  I have absolutely no idea. But I feel like a gigantic whale. Not really, but I do feel rather large today in the stomach area...

Cravings:  Coke. Caffeine free of course. But, I have to watch myself I could drink it all day long!  

Food Aversions:  Still beef. Actually, any meat is just not satisfactory. 

People's Comments:  None! I haven't exactly left the house to get people's comments. 

General Mood:  Finally getting that second trimester boost of energy, albeit it's not a lot. And I can't do much because my feet and hands are swelling up. I've gotten A LOT of the house clean. So now I can start working on some sewing projects. Especially when said projects have to do with maternity clothing. I need those now. My pants are waaaayyy too tight up top.   

Fears:  To be honest, I'm scared to be disappointed when T and I find out the gender. I KNOW I am okay with either gender. I really am! But what if when we find out, THAT'S when I realize I wanted a specific gender? I'm horrible!     

Things I was surprised by:  How much household work wears me out. And that I had to take my ring off because my fingers are too swollen. That one surprised me just because I didn't think that would happen for a while. 

Things I am most looking forward to:  Finding out the gender. Only 4 more days! I can't wait for baby to kick and T can feel him/her! (Can't wait to be able to just put him. Or her. )

What I think is Cool/Crazy so far:  I FELT A NUDGE!!!!!! Yay!! Not a full on kick just yet, but definitely a nudge. More than a flutter. Yay!!

Stretch Marks:  None more than the usual. They are so dark though. ): 

Maternity Clothes:  I probably could. But I haven't. :P 

Showing:  Yes, most definitely. I looooove it!!

Movement:  Just little flutters. And a nudge!!! A couple of nudges.  

Gender:  We will know in FOUR days! :D 

Innie or Outie: Innie still! :D <3
I think it's so wonderful that baby can hear me! (: 
I catch myself talking to my belly when I'm alone. And when I'm not. 
I probably sound crazy!!
I should take a nap. Mama is Tired. :P


  1. I need to get your belly bands finished and in the mail! (that's a pretty big turnip...)
