17 Weeks Update

Everyone had to jump in and show their baby bellies, too. I think I might switch to updates like this to keep my rambling at a minimum.

How far along: 17 weeks
Size of baby: about the size of a turnip, about 5 inches long from crown to bottom
Total weight gain: already 12 pounds (and I’ve been eating so carefully and working out 4-5 times a week, oh well!)
Maternity clothes: about halfway in maternity shirts and pants–I still can wear many regular pants and some looser shirts
Gender: don’t know and we won’t find out. I have no inclination yet.
Movement: feeling lots of little kicks and flops
Sleep: sleeping great
What I miss: not needing a nap everyday
Cravings: none right now
Symptoms: looseness in my hips is giving me some aches, but otherwise, nothing else. I’m not feeling queasy anymore which is wonderful!
Best moment of the week: feeling kicks in the middle of a very hectic morning tutoring in our homeschool class. I normally don’t feel anything until I am still and the kids are asleep.
