Diary of a Pregnant Lady: Week 17

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!

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.

Treadmill, pilates, and strength training.

I'm still eating like a champ.

Movement: I think I felt something a few times this week (so above).

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!

Mozzarella sticks? The thought of eating fried cheese made me want to vom during both of my pregnancies. I craved the hell out of some peanut butter and cereal though.

Anonymous said...'re starting to feel movement. That's so exciting! Soft pretzels sound pretty dang good right now.

Feeling movement is so exciting! I can't wait for you to post the gender after your anatomy scan! :)

I've had a son for 2 weeks and I absolutely love it! As much as I want a girl at some point (mine would be super girly with bows and ruffles too), I can't imagine having a daughter right now and I am really enjoying my boy!

Enjoy your big of the BEST moments of my life, both times. I just adore the moments that were just me and the hubs finding out something life changing. I'll be thinking of you Tuesday (which also happens to be my last day of school..soo all and all a great day!) If we have a third, I will be having a suprise.

..almost halfway there!!

I wanted a girl- but now, I couldn't even imagine not having a little boy inside of me. I hear little boys REALLY love their mamas & I'm excited about that!

Yay for feeling baby movement!!
