17 Weeks

Note: This should have gone up yesterday. But we are living in a hotel dealing with very little usable wall space, and only one window. And we had quite the coastal storm yesterday. So it was just too dark.

How far along: 17 Weeks.

How big is baby: 5 inches or so. Little Turnip Head.

Total weight gain: According to my DR appointment this morning, I am +1.8lbs!

Maternity Clothes: I bought myself a belly band. Because I can’t button my pants and be comfortable anymore!

Sleep: Lots of it. And even in a hotel, it’s been phenomenal – filled with crazy dreams, but phenomenal.

Best moment of the week: An unexpected ultrasound! We got to see the little baby this week. Pretty amazing. He or She was kicking and twisting, yawning and sucking it’s thumb. We are dealing with some super long legs people.

Food Cravings: Everything is sounding good lately. Except…

Food Aversions: Beef and Asian food.

Symptoms: Lots of round ligament stretching, which means lots of round ligament pain. Some days I get none, some days I can hardly stand.

Movement: SO much. Can’t wait for the day we can feel it on the outside.

Gender: You all are overwhelmingly guessing boy according to the poll. We’ll find out soon! Hopefully.

What I’m looking forward to: Moving into our house. The house we will bring Baby home to.

What I miss: Cold weather.

xoxo, Mallory

      Haha, thanks!! It’s like a tube top, but you wear it around your belly and on top of your pants. It holds your pants together even if you don’t button them.
