Survey Says: 17 weeks preggers

Thursday, August 8, 2013

Well folks, its another week down on the books and now I am only 2 weeks shy of my halfway mark!  The belly is making its presence known everyday and so is my appetite.  Still getting used to this whole not working out thing.  If you know me, then you know I don't do well just sitting still.  Its a great habit for me to learn but a tough adjustment for sure.

This weekend we get Russell's dad in town and I think Russell and his dad will be finishing the painting and adding the chair railing to the room.  Yay!

With me being 18 weeks tomorrow here is this past week's info:

Survey says...

Written Thursday, Aug. 8

How far along?: 17 weeks and 6 days

Total weight gain/loss:   This week there was a lot of growth and there was about a 1 to 1.5lb gain.  It was a rollercoaster all week.

Maternity clothes?:  I can still squeeze into a TINY few pieces of work pre-preg clothes but my options are very limited.  I am still okay on the weekends thanks to summer dresses but with fall on the radar, a few purchases will be made.  On a side note, the GAP had a HUGE sale going on at our mall in their maternity session so this momma got HOOKED UP with some comfy active wear and work pants.  SCORE!

Sleep:   Buddy was sick the first half of this week and slept with Russell and myself for closer observation so our sleep was pretty rough with Buddy walking around on the bed in the middle of the night.  Once the Budster started feeling a bit better and slept in his usual area of the house, the snoozing got much better.

Best moment of the week:  I could have sworn I felt tiny bubbles below my belly button twice this week which made me all giddy.  It was very random but not the typical gas bubbles (when you are pregnant you will know what I mean) that I feel.  Now I am ready for the steady movements and kicks J

Movement: See above J

Food Cravings:  I don’t have a particular craving right now but I CRAVE my fat free organic milk in the mornings and OJ on the way to work.

Gender:  BOY J  I am thinking of removing this question since the world knows now.

Belly Button: Still in

Stretchmarks?:  Nope.  I have some gooood belly butter

What I miss:  Earlier this week I really wanted a cold cut sub and realized no cold cuts until after the pregnancy.  I was a tad disappointed but nothing I am really missing this week except being able to walk and stay active.  It’s a no no until my low-lying placenta (HOPEFULLY) fixes itself.  Keep your fingers crossed and prayers coming

What I am looking forward to:  Russell and I have 2 trips coming up in the next 3-4 weeks so I am so excited to get away and have a mental break from work and more fun

Weekly Wisdom: Ryan is the size of an onion! And he is starting to develop fat under his skin so he can be a chunky little fella.

Milestones:  Feeling those inconsistent but they were there tiny bubbles that I think was baby Ryan saying hello.
Have a great week everyone!
XOXO, Sherri
