17 weeks!

17 weeks!!

 April 25th-31th 

Here is what we have been up to this week:

Weight Gain:  still down about 6 lbs

Maternity Clothes : yup

Sleep: noticed the past couple of nights I'm back to not being able to sleep thru the night w/o a bathroom trip

Best Moment of this week:  telling my kids at school that I am having a girl... more on that to come :) ; working on our registry and picking out a car seat/stroller (I think... ha!)

Movement: I'm ready for it but haven't felt it that I know of
Food cravings:  I feel like I am back to normal eating for the most part- no particular cravings this week.

What I miss: nothing :)
Symptoms: the headaches have been slightly better this week-- I have noticed more abdominal stretching/cramping when I'm heading to bed

Gender: sweet little lady! we go for our orignal "gender scan" appt tomorrow at the doc's office... k and I both wonder what we do if they say, "its a BOY!" haha we shall see :)... 

What I'm looking forward to: feeling the little princess moving around :) 
 Baby bump: 
{i think i look smaller this week than last}
The Baby in Week 17: 

My how your baby has grown! She's about the size of your palm, weighs about five ounces, and is developing some body fat (join the club, baby!). Her heart is now regulated by her brain (no more random beats) to beat 140 to 150 times per minute — about twice as fast as yours! What else is up? She’s practicing the survival skills she’ll need at birth — like sucking and swallowing {we saw this last week at the ultrasound :) }.

Your Body in Week 17:
Now that you're starting to show, chances are that friends, coworkers, and even strangers may feel the urge to reach out and touch your belly. If you don't mind, that's fine. But if you do, speak up kindly but firmly. More new developments with your body: a slight vaginal discharge (leukorrhea) and a greater sensitivity to allergens these days — both are totally normal — and the appetite of a truck driver now that the queasy feeling is (probably) gone.
