17 Weeks

17 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 0 lbs (I actually got on a scale this week at my parents house, but the more accurate number will come this week when I go to the doctor).  I'm getting bigger each week so the weight must be coming shortly behind.  

Maternity Clothes?  I'm realizing that I need to get some maternity leggings.  I thought my normal ones would do just fine, but that waistband is sure uncomfortable! 

Have You Started to Show?  Well I sure think so, but still no strangers have commented.  I told the cashier at Babies R Us that I was pregnant and he said he couldn't tell.  Seriously?!  I was wearing a really fitted shirt!

Stretch Marks?  Nope! :-)

Sleep?  Much better this week!  It has been wonderful.

Best Moment This Week:  Feeling Baby K's first kick!

Miss Anything?  Sleeping on my stomach!

Movement?  At the very end of the week, I finally felt a kick.  I was relaxing on our couch after lunch and some candy and all of sudden felt a "bubble pop" low in my belly!  I can't wait for more movement.

Food Cravings:  This week I've found a new love for grape laffy taffy.  I have found excuses to go to the store just to buy a bar.  Maybe I should just start buying more than one...

Food Aversions:  Meat still isn't at the stop of my list, but it's slowly becoming more appealing.  I had steak (flank steak) for the first time since being pregnant and it went down okay.

Symptoms:  Another great week, body feels wonderful!

Staying Active?  I've been walking & jogging at Alki lots since we've had quite a bit of sun.  Still planning on heading to the gym....Maybe this week it will finally happen!

Belly Button:  Each week it's getting closer and closer to becoming flat.  Still an "innie!"

Happy or Moody?  I was starting to get a little stressed about not feeling the baby, but otherwise it has been such a happy week!

Nursery Progress:  Baby K's library is growing!  This week my brother Ryan & his fiance gave me The Napping House, one of their favorite books.  I've read this once or twice when I worked at DAP in Delaware.  It is so fun to read!  An awesome addition to our small book collection.  I also found our copy of Make Way for Ducklings in a box that had not been unpacked yet.  Since Baby K can hear things starting this week, I might find myself reading through our books! :-)

Looking Forward to:  Finding out the gender on Tuesday!!!
