17 weeks

How far along? 17 weeks (baby is 5 inches long & the size of a turnip)

Symptoms: not too many that are bothersome. The heartburn is better, the nausea is still gone & I still love to take my afternoon naps!

Weight gain/loss: +1 lb for a total of 7 lbs gained - ugh, creeping up the scale!!

Maternity clothes? a few - the shirt in the pic above is a maternity top & is SO comfy. It is one that I ordered from Motherhood Maternity last week & I am thinking I might have to order another one in a different color!

Sleep: no problems falling asleep but still struggle to fall back asleep after the 4am bathroom call.

Food cravings/aversions: still eating a lot of salads & loving the carbs

Movement? yes, feeling more & more of the little "flutters" - especially while laying on my back

What I miss? sleeping all the way through the night

Best moment(s) this week: spending the weekend with my mom

What I'm looking forward to: seeing Baby T again at our 20 week ultrasound on Sept 21st

Next Appointment: Thursday, Sept 6th - 18 week appointment with my OB

Milestones: Baby T's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, the umbilical cord is growing stronger & thicker, baby can move his/her joints & the sweat glands are starting to develop.

7 pounds...shut up, skinny girl. ;) You'd be mortified to know that I had gained 40# by 24 weeks with each baby. My sister does it, too. Our genes suck. You look fabulous!

umm C, got you least your doc didn't tell you that you might want to start eating more salads! Fired that b! :) A fat girls gotta fight for her rights. :)
Heather, you look great. When do you think you might start telling people? I seen Mrs. Marso the other day and I almost let it slip. :)

Nickie - Dr. Marso has known for a month now so I'm pretty sure Janet knows so feel free to "let it slip" if you see her again :)

I am planning on coming out on FB after our 20 week ultrasound. Just want to make sure everything is ok before I say anything. Mostly everyone knows (family, co-workers, close friends) - I obviously can't keep this baby bump hidden any longer :)

Am planning on doing a blog post on my other blog regarding our journey with infertility coming soon.
