Here are the last few weekly pictures that I have taken.
I went to the doctor for the first time here in CO during week 15.
Everything looks great and Baby M’s heart rate was a fast 160.
Here are some more little fun facts:
I am borrowing this little idea from the Little Baby Gavin blog.
How far along? 17 weeks as of Tuesday, Dec. 20
Total weight gain: I have no idea! lol I lost so much weight the first trimester (about 10 lbs or so) that I really don’t know. I think I have gained about 2 or 3 lbs. back since I have been feeling better.
Maternity clothes? nope and I think I still have a few weeks until I have too
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: Oh, how I miss a good night sleep! I haven’t slept very well in far too long and I wish I would since I know once the baby comes I really won’t be getting much sleep. 🙁
Best moment this week: Getting my prescription of Zofran refilled! lol I ran out of it for a couple days and was immediately sick again. SO NOT FUN! Guess I will be sticking with this for a few more months.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back! Week 16 was the first week that you are officially not allowed to sleep on your back but I have been trying to do it for a few weeks now. I must admit, I do end up that way a few times during the night but not for very long. But I miss it oh so much!
Movement: Not feeling anything yet or at least to my knowledge. I could be and just haven’t realized it yet.
Food cravings: I actually haven’t had any cravings yet. Ok, I take that back. I had 1 a few weeks ago for chips and salsa but that came and went and I don’t have anything else. In fact, I am actually so tired of food! I am probably the only pregnant person to ever say that but I am tired of always having to eat something.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not so much anymore, unless I don’t have my meds or I wait to long to eat something. Also, I discovered that I just can’t eat a steak anymore.
Gender: Don’t know yet but as long as Baby M cooperates we will find out January 13!!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: INSANE back pain! Have had it for weeks and depending on how much I try to do, it gets worse. I frequently walk like a little old lady who lost her cane. My hips also hurt if I sleep on one side too long.
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy
Looking forward to: Obviously, Jan. 13 to find out the gender but also Christmas this weekend. Family has already sent Baby M some presents so it will be fun opening them up to see what they have received.
I normally take my weekly picture at the end of each week so that my belly grows that whole week so look for updates at the end of the week.
Also, I want to know what you think Baby M will be!!
I added a poll in the top, left hand column so please cast your votes for whether you think Baby M will be a Boy or a Girl!
