17 Weeks

This pregnancy seems to be flying by! I was very sick with both Dylan and Lexie, but it seems like I'm even sicker this time. It doesn't feel real yet. I mean, I have all the symptoms, I've seen the baby, heard the heartbeat twice, and I can feel Nugget moving around, but I don't have a baby bump. I can see a difference, but people that don't know I'm pregnant have no clue that I even am. I can't wait until it's noticeable!

February 28, 2011

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.

Sleep: I can't complain! I'm sleeping well right now.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Feeling my little sweet pea move around more.

: 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!

Unknown, and not finding out! We've had the names picked out since I was 6 weeks along.

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!

  4. I can't believe you are already almost to the halfway point! It seems to be flying by but then again I am not the one pregnant. ;-) You are looking fantastic and I can't wait to hear the names you have picked out!

  5. It's so fun when they start moving more and more!!!

  6. Looking good! I wish I would've lost weight during my first trimester :)

  7. Ok, I haven't been 'round these parts in WAYYYY too long! I didn't know you were expecting. Congratulations!!! Your kids are so stinkin' precious, I can't wait to see this new one!
