How far along: 17 weeks
Total Weight Gained: All loss so far.
How big is baby? Nugget is 5.1 inches from crown to rump and weighs 5 ounces! He/She is about the size of a turnip.
How baby is growing: Nugget's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord is growing stronger and thicker. He/She can move his/her joints, and the sweat glands are starting to develop.
Maternity Clothes: No, my regular pants are still loose.
Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week: Feeling my little sweet pea move around more.
Movement: The movements are getting stronger!
Food Cravings: Nothing.
Food Aversions: Everything. Still eating to survive.
Morning Sickness: I still have hyperemesis. I'm really hoping I start to improve, at least a little bit, soon!
Gender: Unknown, and not finding out! We've had the names picked out since I was 6 weeks along.
Symptoms: Nausea morning to night, gagging, vomiting, extreme fatigue, stretching of the round ligaments (I keep pulling them!), and braxton hicks contractions.
Exercise: I'm going to start back this week, once my cold goes away. I took a break all last week to get better.
What I miss: Enjoying my meals!
What I'm looking forward to: Seeing Nugget at our big ultrasound next month!
