17 Week Update

I did not take many pictures or journal at all while I was pregnant with Clark so I thought I would try to keep up better this time around. Plus I am very curious just how big I am going to get and how different it is going to be this time so I am going to try to do a weekly update. This blog is a journal for me and I love looking back at old posts to remember our little life, so I do not expect all of you to read the weekly updates- but if you would like to follow me along this journey please do!

How Far Along: 17 weeks 3 days.

Baby Size: According to all my apps the babies are about the size of ONIONS (about 5 inches each)

Weight Loss/Gain: At my last appointment I was +3 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: A mix. Mostly maternity pants and a mix of tops. Lots of dresses.

Sleep: I sleep pretty well. I am most comfortable on my side, but switch sides a lot during the night.

Symptoms: Today is DAY 4 with NO Zofran. I am hoping that the all day sickness I have been having is coming to a close.  I was sick 4-5 times a day but the Zofran helped me so much. I was sick last night at the movies, but am hoping it was a fluke!

Movement: Not yet. I am very much looking forward to it and wonder if I will be able to know which one is which when they move around!

Best Moment This Week: Clark talking to my belly. He said "Hi babies! Are you growing?". It was so cute. He then told me that they were growing big and strong and that when they came out we were going to have to give them some milk. :)

Food Cravings:  I have had much more of an appetite this week due to the fact that I have not been so sick. I still stick to pretty bland foods like PB&J, Cheese & Crackers, and Bagels. However I did request fried rice and an egg roll out of the blue on Saturday so Chinese take out it was! 

What I Miss: I do miss Jazzercise and yesterday after day 8 of state testing I really could have used a beer!

Looking Forward To: MAY 31ST!! This is our big ultrasound where we get one hour to just learn all we can about them which will hopefully include the genders. I am pretty very excited about it.

Well there you have it. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with it!
Happy Wednesday!
