17 & 18 Weeks


Date: 1/17/13
How far along? 17 Weeks
Total weight gain:  6 lbs
Maternity clothes? I wore one of the new tunics that I bought from the Gap this week with leggings and also have utilized the belly band that I bought with some of my work pants.  I am ready for summer weather to be here so I can enjoy some of my sundresses (not maternity).
Stretch marks? not yet...if my ladies keep growing at this pace then I'm certain to get some! ha
Miss Anything? some wine or champagne to celebrate that we find out we are having a boy. We celebrated in Destin.
Movement: not yet
Food cravings: CHOCOLATE   
Symptoms: tiredness
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on, but my fingers have definitely been swollen
Sleep:  Mostly sleeping just fine at night, but waking up several times to use the restroom
Best moment this week: Finding out that we are having a baby BOY and seeing him on the ultrasound.  We also had a doctors appointment and everything checked out great.  We found out that the baby's heartrate was 165 at our 8 week appointment and it was in the 150s at this 16 week appointment.  So we proved that old wives tale as false since we are having a boy!
Exercise:  Walking on the treadmill and pilates on the reformer
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really anymore.  
Gender Prediction: It's a BOY!
Labor Signs: No
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! 
Looking forward to:  My future sister-in-laws bachelorette party in New Orleans this weekend!
