How far along? 17 weeks
|17 weeks - baby is the size of a turnip|
Baby Size: 5 inches from head to rump, about the size of a turnip (according to babycenter)
Total weight gain/loss: 4-5lbs
Maternity clothes? Still haven’t gotten any yet
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: I think I slept for about 12 hours overnight on Saturday - I’m still sleepy. But I’m sleeping pretty well, and having more vivid dreams that normal.
Best moment this week: It was another low-key week without a lot of excitement, but taking it easy seems to be the thing I want to do the most.
Miss Anything? I went to a Wine Tasting this week (it’s part of a club we are in) and a little wine would have been delicious. But it was fun to see everyone and it wasn't too hard not being able to partake.
Movement: Not feeling the baby yet, I hope soon!
|Baby bump almost MIA|
Food cravings: I've wanted fresh veggies (I went through a big bag of snap peas and another bag of baby carrots in a few days) and dill dip this week. I also made cucumber salad that was really good… almost like craving pickles.
Have you started to show yet: When I took the photos for this week, I was feeling (and looking) huge! There is no denying I have a bump in those photos. But it still seems to be bigger at times. But it seems to depend on the day. ----->
Gender prediction: I still feel like it’s a girl, but I’m up in the air.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In, but getting shallower
Wedding rings on or off? On
Symptoms: My legs have been sore/crampy, which I hadn’t experienced before this week but it only lasted a few days.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Feeling the baby move and finding out the gender – can’t wait!!!
