17 Weeks!

How big is baby this week? Baby is the size of an onion.

Due Date: May 8, 2012

Weight Gain: Holding steady. I was totally freaked out about this, as I've only gained roughly one lb this whole pregnancy thus far, but my Dr was not worried at all- said baby is getting all the nutrients it needs from me.

Symptoms: Nausea now when driving, heartburn. Stuffy, bloody nose, growing belly.

Cravings: Water, milk, pickles, sushi, guacamole, raw veggies.

Aversions: No aversions, but super saucy is not very appetizing.

Sleep: Able to stay up later, and sleeping pretty well- having some strange dreams tho.

I am loving: Feeling baby move! Started on Thanksgiving!

I miss: raw sushi and a good Bloody Mary.

I am looking forward to: Our next ultrasound- December 12- hoping baby cooperates so we can find out the sex!

I'm spazzing about: needing to recover the chair we bought

Best thing about this week: Getting to feel baby move- it's the best!

Milestones: feeling baby move, and baby's cartilage is turning into bone.

Movement: Yup! Usually feels like popcorn, sometimes it tickles, and sometimes it feels like little kicks!

It's a...: Still no idea:(


  1. I hate that your nausea is back! I had horrible motion sickness too- but it all went away at about 21 weeks. Hang in there!

  2. So are we only 3 weeks apart then? I thought it would be 4---but maybe you are counting your weeks differently than me. Also, a Bloody Mary sounds divine. Glad baby is moving around for you! Isn't it the best?

  3. Many congrats, loved reading your story and look forward to following along!
