Pregnancy Survey 17 Weeks!

November is going to be such a busy month!!! 

Besides having all of my families birthday's this month (holy shopping!), this year we have two really exciting weekends coming up. 1st is on my birthday (Nov. 18th!). My mom is coming to visit! And we are going to do a little shopping in Seattle and just plain have an amazing weekend. I can't wait. And then for Thanksgiving, J and I are going home! Lot's of home cooked amazing food and friends, and family. And I am hoping to have most of my Christmas gifts picked out by then so I can just bring them down and not ship everything. Fingers crossed!!!

Here goes the Survey:

How far along?: 17 Weeks 1 day!

Total weight gain: I don't really want to think about it! I will get the official word on the 10th when I go in for my next appointment. I am hoping for around 5 pounds total gained. We'll see...

How big is Baby?: The size of an sweet potato. 

Maternity clothes?: I am lovin' the maternity work pants! They are amazing! I am wearing a few maternity tops but still mostly regular tops. Especially for work I am still in regular tops but they are showing off the belly! Still haven't switched over to maternity jeans yet. 

Stretch marks?: No thank goodness! I thought I had some starting and FREAKED, but apparently I had just scratched my tummy or something because they were gone the next morning. 

Sleep?: Starting to dream more (which is weird!) and they aren't so nice. I have having more scary dreams. =(

Movement?: Not yet. But I am feeling myself digest which feels exactly like how the first movements are described. But since it's only after large meals I am 99% sure that it's digestion. 

Food cravings?: Still just food. I still love pickles, and peanut butter pickle sandwiches. And comfort food. And candy. Why can't I crave healthy food?

What I'm looking forward to: My next appointment! I am wondering if he will do another ultrasound...Probably not, but maybe!

Milestone: Bought my 1st baby purchase! a Moby (in orange!). Totally stoked about that! And I've signed up childbirth classes and parenting classes. Parenting classes start Saturday!

How's Mom?: Good this week. Work is going better. I'm not feeling any more ready to have this baby but I am coming to terms with what my timeline is can be totally different from another pregger lady's. And what I mean by this is that I am feeling okay that we have hardly any baby items or clothes, our baby is not pre-named, and while we may have a baby room it is in no way, shape, or form ready to house a baby. And this works for me! And for all you pre-prepared preggo's out there, more power to ya!

I've been having really freaky dreams too! Last night I had one where I couldn't say the word 'baby' odd. We decided not to pick a name out until she's born. We have ideas, and names we like, but nothing set in stone yet. You have plenty of time to pick, and to change your mind :)

I was lucky to not have any stretch marks woohoo!! And I'm crediting it to this stuff: Butterfly Weed Earth Mama Belly Jelly

Smells great and feels even better.

Love reading the surveys :)
