Today’s Date: August 1, 2015 Due Date Saturday January 9, 2016
How far along: 17 weeks
Total weight gain: Small amount (not wanting to share)
Maternity clothes: No but my clothes are feeling tighter. I have started to use my belly belts and belly bands again.
Stretch marks: No stretch marks
Sleep: I am having a lot of weird dreams. I am waking up at least twice in the night. I am certainly wishing I was getting more sleep.
Best moment of this week: Feeling the baby move. It’s not everyday but I do feel little flutters and scratching every once in a while.
Miss anything: Sandwiches, I am really craving a sandwich and get quite jealous that everyone else can eat one.
Movement: See above
Food cravings: It’s random things that will pop in my head.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not now that morning sickness is gone
Have you started to show yet: Yes I have a bump in front. Some days it looks bigger than others but I think that’s just excess fluids.
Gender: It’s a Boy!
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Moody at times, but I am home with almost 3 year old twins
Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound this month. We are taking the girls with us so they will get to see the baby for the first time. They are also very excited. Although Bailey is still convinced it’s a girl and not a boy. She is not happy about the thought of something not being pink in our house.
Other updates: We are transitioning the girls’ room from the small nursery room to the bigger bedroom which means we had to take down our guest bedroom. So there are many changes coming to our house besides a new baby. I’m hoping to have the girls in their new room within the next month to two months so that they have time to adjust before he comes. If anyone has any tips on adjusting children to a new room, new baby, all these changes; please share. I am very interested to hear what to expect and tips that might help.
|14 weeks: Baby is size of a lemon!
|15 weeks: Baby is the size of an apple.
|16 weeks: Baby is the size of an avocado.
|17 weeks: Baby is the size of a turnip.
As you can see in the variations of the weeks, my belly changes quite a lot. It depends on the time of day and whether or not I have eaten.
Upcoming: I will have an appointment to hear the heartbeat Aug. 12 and then have my sonogram Aug. 27. The girls and Joel will be with me for the sonogram.
