How far along: 17 Weeks.
How big is baby: The size of the palm of my hand (not including the legs) just about 5.1 inches, 5.9 ounces to be exact.
Total weight gain: Last week I was at about a 16 lb. gain. I’m not sure what I am at this week.
Maternity Clothes: Yes, wearing them in this photo. I’ve had one patient and one co-worker ask if I was expecting. Both of which insisted to tell me that I’m tiny, carrying it all in my belly and that I’m a glowing momma. Although I don’t feel much of a “glow” lately (because of this pestering acne), I’m desperately trying to look past it like so many others do. My husband insists on telling me I’m beautiful. Bless his heart. He really does make me feel it too. But we all know the way we feel about ourselves is by far the most influential.
Sleep: So much better now that my husband is home safe.
Best moment of the week: Bobby coming home!
Food Cravings: Still eating pretty good. Craving milk and I don’t even drink milk. Oh yeah, they say I’d have the appetite of a truck driver this week and man, they weren’t kidding!
Food Aversions: Nothing really, I feel like I am back to normal to be honest.
Symptoms: Still stuffy, acne, swollen legs/ankles at times, and really itchy nipples and belly.
Movement: I am still feeling the same fluttering, but I am still not sure if it really is BS yet. BS’s heart is now regulated by his/her brain (no more random beats) to beat 140-150 times per minute. That’s twice as fast as mine!
What I’m looking forward to: The next ultrasound!
What I miss: My mom, sister and brother as usual. A lot.
