17 weeks Update

A Little Pregnancy Update...
*17 weeks 2 days*

How far along: I will be 18 weeks on Sunday, June 27

Total Weight Gain:  Trust me, this one is not a weight loss issue...I have gained 9 pounds.  I actually thought it would be A LOT more, but I went to the doctor this week for sinus stuff, and according to their scale, I have gained 9 pounds so far.  I think moving and walking with Molly on a daily basis has really helped me in this area, plus I am not as hungry anymore.  

Maternity Clothes: Yes, please!  Actually half and half...I have skirts and dresses that I wear, like the one in the picture that are not maternity, but are stretchy or have elastic waistbands in the them.  And then I have some shirts that are longer/stretchier that I can wear.  Some of my maternity clothes from when I was pregnant with Molly are still way too big since I was 8/9 months pregnant in the summer and was a lot bigger than I am now.  It's a toss up each day on what I wear.  

Stretchmarks:  Are you kidding me?!  Yes, I am sure, but I really try not to look!

Movement:  All of the time!  This child is way more active than Molly was at this stage.  Which is funny since Molly is super active now!  Actually I am getting kicked now!

Food Cravings:  I don't have to be pregnant to have a food craving!  But nothing really, at first I wanted a cheeseburger everyday.  Now it's probably sugar, I love sugar candy.

Gender:  We find out on July 8th if we are having a Blake Andrew or a Lucy May

Belly Button In or Out:  In for the most part, but it's expanding and starting to protrude a little.

What I Miss:  A clear complexion...these hormones are awful this time around, plus the stress of moving and losing my kitty doesn't help.  Sometimes I look like a 12 year old boy going through puberty!

Emotions:  I feel pretty good.  I get emotional when I see little kids get on a school bus, or say good-bye to their mom, but overall, pretty excited!

Well, there you have it folks!  Have a great Thursday!
