17 weeks!

oops. looks like i missed 16 weeks? i'll get better i promise. to be honest not too much has changed.

also, you'd think i'd be smart and use our new canon rebel to take belly pictures. will try to remember that for next week! for now a fuzzy iphone shot...

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 17 weeks

Total Weight Gain: up 2 pounds

Maternity Clothes: i did buy some AMAZING maternity tanks i'll be reviewing this week but other than that no

Movement: WE HAVE MOVEMENT! i thought i felt him/her a few times this weekend but then yesterday i definitely felt movement. especially after i drank a glass of cold water, felt like someone was lightly dancing inside my belly! on my runs yesterday and today it was really odd- i could feel exactly where she was the entire time, kind of felt like a light pressure (no pain) but when i came home i used the doppler and sure enough she was on the left side like i had thought. what a wonderful feeling

Sleep: eh alright, still waking up a few times to use the restroom, and i definitely don't sleep like a log as i previously did

Symptoms: nothing really

Cravings: i have been STARVING the past few days. i think it might be my weight gain trying to catch up with me. i'm embarrassed/proud to admit i ate almost an entire medium pizza last night. all to myself.

Emotions: still thrilled. so happy my emotional roller coaster is on pause for now because for a few weeks i was absolutely crazy hormonal

Best Moment of the Week: feeling the baby move!
