How Far Along: 17 Weeks
Size of baby: Little one is around 5 ounces and 5 inches... About the size of an onion.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 4 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I can still wear my regular clothes but they are starting to get tight after meals... I am loving my "belly bands."
Gender: Don't know- we'll hopefully find out February 15th.
Movement: I feel flutters from daily now and every now and then a good hard poke/kick.
Sleep: Still getting up at least once a night to pee. Still trying to get used to sleeping on my side.
What I miss: Ibuprofen! And sleeping on my back.
Cravings: Nothing in particular right now. Early on it was Cherry Icees but that has passed. I love iced water with lemon now...And I still love Mexican food!
Symptoms: I had some mild to moderate nausea and heartburn with the first trimester but that passed after about week 12. Knock on wood, I didn't throw up! Now I have "rhinitis of pregnancy." Lots of nasal stuffiness. I am less tired than the first trimester but still as tired as I was before. I am just starting to look like I'm pregnant- I still mostly look like I ate a big meal!
