Week 17- June 10th - June 16th
Due Date: November 18, 2011
How Big is Baby: The blob is the size of an onion!
Morning Sickness/Symptoms: This was a good week. I felt less faint and felt pretty darn good.
Cravings: Mozzarella sticks and soft pretzels.
Sleep: Sleep is a little more uncomfortable. I need a pillow under by stomach, between my legs and under my head.
I Can't Live Without: Twizzlers, water, air conditioning, summer
I Miss: A nice cold miller lite
I am Looking Forward to: Our anatomy scan on Tuesday!
Milestones: A stranger asked if I was pregnant, so I MUST be showing (a teenage boy cashier at the grocery store to be exact). I think that I've also felt the baby move a bit this week- it feels a bit like butterflies in my stomach and/or something tickling me from the inside!
Awkward Moments: Staying upright. My balance feels a bit off.
Exercise: Treadmill, pilates, and strength training.
Diet: I'm still eating like a champ.
Movement: I think I felt something a few times this week (so above).
Gender: We still don't know! A lot of people have been asking me if we have a preference and we don't. I would be thrilled to have a girl-- in fact, I think that I'd be a hell of a lot better as a girl mom. If this is a girl, she'll have the biggest bows on the block and own at least 10 ruffled bikinis by age two. That being said, I most definitely feel like this baby is a boy and that's okay too! Everyone that I've talked to (and trust me, people are always willing to weigh in) have told me that although they love their kids (boy or girl) "equally," that the love between a mother and a son is very different, and second to none. When I watch the mom's that I've asked talk about their boys it's obvious that the boys bring a sparkle to their eyes. In an ideal world, I'd get to experience both.
Labor Signs: It’s far too soon for this!
