How far along: 17 weeks
Maternity clothes: Still mixing it up - Had my first experience where a complete stranger (patient's husband at work) asked me "So are you having a girl or a boy?" I was taken aback that someone could tell I was pregnant - Still sometimes doesn't feel real
Stretch marks: No....but I think my "girls" may get some first....I attribute all my weight gain to them! They're HUGE!!
Sleep: Waking up a few times every night still - considering getting a body pillow?
Best moment of the week: Finding out that my Integrated screen came back negative/normal!! One less thing to worry about
Worst moment of the week: Nothing
Running/Working out: Still running and spinning - hardest part now is finding workout clothes to fit
Missing anything: Nope (broken record to say my old jeans)
Movement: Not yet, hoping to feel something soon!
Cravings: Ice cold water
Morning sickness: Still occasional, with smells bothering me more than ever
Energy level: Energy is slightly better, but overall still exhausted most days
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Irritable, moody
Looking forward to: Warmer weather - I can't wait for it to be hot enough to swim in our pool! AND for summer fruit to be in season!
Something surprising about being pregnant: I'm constantly shocked how much my taste buds and aversions have changed since being pregnant. Honestly, I never believed woman when they said those things....but now I know better how much smells, textures and even just thoughts can bring on the worst case of nausea and gagging. Blows my mind!
