17 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 17 weeks
Total Weight Gain: minus 10 lbs

Baby Size: Onion (about 5.1 inches, 5.9 oz.)

Maternity Clothes: I've been out of the house!  I wore a comfy skirt, a high waisted dress and even found a pair of shorts that still fit great!

Gender: Had some weird dreams this week.  In one of them Rick (our pastor) said that he could read ultrasound photos and we were having twins! A boy and a girl!  I woke up thinking it was real, then went back to sleep and dreamed that same night that we were having just one baby and it was a girl. 

Movement: Not yet, but could be any time now!
Sleep: I'm still having side sleeping woes.  My hips are aggravating me.  But I'm sleeping plenty, just waking up frequently. 
What I miss: I don't miss much of anything right now!  I'm feeling better than I have in months and I'm able to do things too!  I'm even happy to be gaining weight and getting a belly :)

Cravings: I still want ice cream morning noon and night - but that isn't really any different than any other non pregnant day - haha

Other crazy symptoms:  Maybe nesting?  Is it time for that yet?  I have this overwhelming desire to organize and get rid of stuff...

Best Moments this week: Another great week!
- I went to church on Sunday - it was incredible to get to see so many people, and my dress showed of my little baby bump too :)
- We made a brief trip to the mall and Target.  I got some maternity panties (thanks Mother in Law!)
- I finished my quilt (pictures to come soon)
- I started cleaning the office
- Justin and Kimberly came to spend the night.  It was a last minute plan, but we had a great time anyway!  We got Cheddar's to go and Andy's.  We sat on the porch on a beautiful summer night and played some fun games!  I hope we can still be somewhat spontaneous after the baby comes :)

So glad you are feeling better and can go out a bit. Can't wait to see you and your little belly. Can't imagine starting out with a negative weight gain
