17 weeks!

Totally feel like I'm getting bigger in the back than in the front...

How far along? 17 weeks

Baby's size? 5 inches, 5 oz! about the size of an onion

Total weight gain: Update- at my doctor's appointment on Monday, the doctor told me that I apparently lost weight in the last 4 weeks, so my overall weight gain was 6 lbs!  Go me!  So, we'll go with that number, as who am I to question the doctor?

Maternity clothes? Yep!  Bought some more shorts on-line yesterday to help expand the wardrobe as my tummy expands :o)

Sleep: Less night bathroom breaks, but the AC not working has proven for some sleepless nights with being so hot!

Best moment(s) this past week: Getting spoiled on Mother's Day!  So strange that it's because I'm growing a baby this year!

Miss Anything?  Feeling cold.  Seriously people, I always was chilly before I got pregnant (except, you know, when outside during a Texas/ Vegas summer), and now all cool/ cold air is cherished!  It may also have something to do with the AC not working... again...

Movement: Maybe?  It was above the belly button, so I'm thinking no...

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.  Again, yay for 2nd trimester!

Cravings:  Avocado- I blame the baby being the size of an avocado last week...

Labor Signs: Nope.

Gender: We'll know in 3 weeks, 3 weeks!!

Symptoms:  More emotional roller coasters this week, still more tired.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get it off terribly easily...

Happy or Moody most of the time: Way more moody, but I'm very blessed with my loving husband, a great sister-in-law as a roommate, and amazing friends nearby that understand my code words for "help!".

Looking forward to:  An AC fixed!  Again!  Book club- I finished the book!  (it was super amazing!  I am Malala- totally makes me want to do more to help the world!)  Alternative "exercise" with Audrey this week (hehehe :o)
