Pregnancy update. :)

Thanks so much for all of your kind comments! Between here, twitter and Facebook my heart was just overflowing! I don't know how consistent I will be with this, but wanted to put a few things down to remind myself of this time!

How far along? 17 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain/loss? I have lost 19, but 11 of those were from weeks 6-8, so I've lost 8 by doctor's count. I've finally stopped losing though!
Maternity clothes? Just pants.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep? Not so great. I'm a light sleeper and every time I wake up to use the potty I'm awake for at least 30 minutes after. But I'm no longer going to bed at 7 pm! Yay for 2nd trimester energy!
Mood? Well? This week I feel semi normal. But I've cried over girl scout cookies and Tyler not being home in time to go eat Mexican. Which he totally was, it was just later than I wanted. We still ate mexican.
Best moment last week? Seeing Baby at an ultrasound. My sister in law has a sweet friend who volunteered to let us peek! He/she is a busy little thing!
Movement? I kind of think I my have felt the babe last week, but I'm not convinced.
Food cravings? Not constant, but I've had a dire need for fresh squeezed lemonade so much so that we bought a citrus juicer. I've also wanted coke icees from burger king, chips and salsa and an orange roll from a restaurant in NWA! A sweet twitter friend helped with the last one! Thanks Taylor!
Gender? We'll know next month
Labor signs? Umm. No.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: dairy and strawberries. I've developed an intolerance of both and it's sad.
What I am looking forward to: Our next ultrasound! 3 weeks!
Milestones: none that I can think of right now, just growing and getting stronger!

  1. Whoa! Why did you lose weight? That's a lot!


  2. Seeing the baby is ALWAYS the highlight each time. Congrats again!

  3. K - I was so, so sick! And the dairy allergy/intolerance didnt help. Once I cut that out, I stopped throwing up but I also gave up a lot of calories! I'm just now able to add a little cheese to meals. The doctor and my allergist are pretty sure ive always had a slight allergy and pregnancy just made it show up. It's no fun.

  4. I know it's hard to make the time to do little updates along the way, but later on you'll be SO glad to have them! :) It's fun to look back. Glad you are feeling better!!! :)
