Happy Thanksgiving!

November 29, 2009

How far along: 17 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: I weighed myself this morning and on the home scale, I’m up 3.5 lbs!

Maternity clothes: Yes, just about all the time now, certain larger shirts I can still get away with but pants are a different story.

Stretch marks: Just the same little one, maybe I should name it?

Sleep: Has been iffy the past couple of nights, some nights all I want is sleep and others, I wake up at 3:30 and can’t fall back asleep

Best moment this week: Popping a little more, but I still think I look like I just ate too much turkey!

Movement: Nick and I have both felt a few things but I’m not sure that they are K moving, I am looking forward to more definite movements coming up!

Food cravings: Sugar, olives, chocolate

Gender: Team Green until Dec 14th!  We are waiting until Christmas to tell the family though.

Belly button in or out?: In

What I miss: My boobs being a “normal” size, I got a heat rash from just wearing a sports bra!  So not good.

What I am looking forward to: Feeling more movement and a larger belly so I don’t just look fat anymore.

Weekly Wisdom: People say stupid things to pregnant woman all the time, try your best to ignore them, even if it’s family!

Milestones: Our first family holiday!  I can’t imagine next year when K will be with us!


This week, I’m feeling really scared.  I feel great besides the hip and back pain but I feel so good, I can’t help but think, what if something bad happened to the baby.  I really regret not renting the Doppler now, had we rented it, every time I feel like this, I could listen to K’s heartbeat and be reassured that everything was ok.  I am very anxious for the upcoming doctor’s appointment on December 3rd, can’t wait to hear that everything is fine.

    You can still rent it! It’s really reassuring when you start to get nervous. And stress is bad for the baby!
