17 Weeks!

No picture of me this week!  Bech was in a student exhibition at the school (and he won 2nd place!), so I didn't have my photographer yesterday.  So you will have to settle for this produce picture.

How Far Along:

I am 17 weeks today!

 Baby Size:

The baby is 5.1 inches long and 5.9 ounces in weight--about the size of an onion.

Maternity Clothes:

Can I just say, I love maternity pants.  This time around, I have splurged (well if you count using gap rewards and watching the sales a splurge) a little and gotten several pairs of gap maternity decision ever.  

As soon as there is another good sale, I'm going to get these maternity pants, too.  Of course I won't wear them until after Easter...obviously.  I may live in Pennsylvania, but I am still Southern.

It has been good, and I have been getting tons of it.  Friday night, Jack went to bed at 8:15, Bech at 8:45, and I went to bed at 9:15.  Ah...perfection!


It's still sporadic, but much more noticeable.  The other night, the baby did a somersault in my belly!

Best Moment This Week:

This is always such a strange question to me.  Because usually, it is not pregnancy related.  Since Bech was at the student exhibition all day yesterday, Jack and I had a mother/son date at Panera after church.  Even though he's not much of a conversationalist, we had a good time.  I am trying to soak up all the Jack only time I can get before September comes!

Food Cravings:

I really want something sour...I'm thinking Ansley's favorite salsa (chunks of tomato, purple onion, avocado with chopped cilantro and lime juice).

Food Aversions:


What I Miss:


Yup, again. 
Also, a medium rare steak.  Why can't I have one of those?  I forget the reason.

What I Am Looking Forward To:

For the baby's kicks to be able to be felt on the outside.
And to know the gender.


None that I can think of.

Pregnancy Symptoms:

My face is breaking out like a 12 year old boy going through puberty. 

3 soon!
Weight Gain:
I won't always put this on here.  But it is nice to have to look back on for future pregnancies.  At this point, I have gained 7 pounds.  I am happy with that.  I would love for it to be a little less, but it's also right on track with my overall goals, so that's good.

There's no reason not to eat a medium-rare steak. Do it!
