Here is a little 17 week update!
Aaron and I took a small day trip to Daytona Beach last Sunday for some much needed R&R. We also just happened to pick going on the day Tropical Storm Beryl came through. We managed to snag a few hours of sunshine before Beryl moved in and brought the rain.
Wow, 17 weeks, how did we get here? Just a few more weeks until we know whether our little Bean is a bambino or bambina. My bet is still on a boy!
How far along? 17 weeks, 1 day
Total weight gain/loss? Ironically, I am still 6lbs under my pre-pregnancy weight, but the bump is growing.
Maternity clothes? Yes and no. Most of my jeans/pants still fit if I wear them lower, but I am finding I am more and more comfortable in maternity clothes.
Stretch marks? No stretch marks, using my cream daily!
Sleep? I could have slept all day everyday during my first trimester. Now that the second is in full swing sleep is getting more and more scarce. I am waking up a lot in the middle of the night, and have been having awful dreams.
Best moment last week? Hearing a strong healthy heartbeat at our 16 week appointment last week at the Birth Center. Best sound I have ever heard.
Movement? No movement yet. I randomly think I feel flutters, but I think that is just my tummy grumbling for more food.
Food cravings? Strawberries, peanut butter, and salad.
Gender? Do not know for sure yet, but I am still thinking a boy!
Labor signs? None.
Belly button in/out? In, but thanks to round ligament pain that belly button of mine is hurting lately.
What I miss: Having energy, not having headaches if I don't drink enough water, and being able to run or walk without getting winded after 5 minutes.
What I am looking forward to: Having a little more energy, and finding out what we are having!
Milestones: Nothing big this week. Very happy the nausea is almost completely gone though!
