17 Weeks!

How Far Along: 17 weeks!

Size of Baby: a sweet potato this week {5.5 in., 5 oz.} according to What To Expect.

Maternity Clothes: I can still wear some of my pre-pregnancy dresses, but as for tops + bottoms, it's much more comfortable to wear maternity.

Gender: The appointment was just made --- July 23rd can't come soon enough!

Movement: Still nothing, but I'm told it should happen soon.

Sleep: Since returning from our vacation {with a head cold}, I have been sleeping like a rock!

What I miss: Being able to take any medications I want, specifically for aforementioned head cold.

Cravings: Salt has been a big one lately.

Other crazy symptoms: None too crazy, I'm actually feeling my energy creeping back a little.

Best Moment this week: Hearing the baby's heartbeat again after 5 long weeks!  Such a wonderful, reassuring sound!


  1. You look great!! Sounds like a good strong heartbeat!!! <3

  2. I hope that you had a great Birthday!
